mantels inspired by you!

Tuesday, November 30, 2010

This is our first holiday in the new house and we are so lucky to have two fireplace mantels to decorate any way we want!! I’ve been searching for inspiration on what I should put together this year, and the big mantel construction will take place this week, but in the meantime, let me share with you some of my favorites.

This first mantel comes from Centsational Girl and she motivates me to keep looking for just the right mirror to place over the fireplace. The ornament wreath is a definite “must” for me! Her use of blue and fresh greens is gorgeous with the pure white and blue grey background.

Just a Girl turned a mantel into a warm and fuzzy display complete with warm textures and a wintergreen background. She repurposed sweater sleeves to make these unique candles and the wreath is definitely not your customary green version!

The Lettered Cottage is currently hosting its Holiday Home Linky Party and asking you to link up your holiday mantel. Luckily for us, Kevin and Layla share their own mantel and my heart flutters for the Pottery Barn mirror variation they used over the fireplace. I have those gold snowflakes and silver balls on deck, so hanging them over your mantel looks great!

Really, who needs a mantel? Not Piney Flats Style who used a shelf to display the perfect design that can be duplicated over any fireplace. The great thing about this design is the color – the bright, beautiful colors of the season stand out in every detail used.
