home: summer mantel simplicity

Friday, June 13, 2014

The year has been lacking in blog posts but it hasn't been a boring year by any means. I suppose I'm getting picky on what goes on the blog since I don't like wasting your time with anything boring. So when it comes time to share a new mantelscape, I feel a sort of duty to keep you in the loop.

Today's post comes with the first show of the newly-painted living room and hallway. After much deliberation (and a nice collection of pins on Pinterest), I narrowed the color down to Moonshine by Benjamin Moore. And it really does brighten the entire entry area!

For the first time since we've lived here, I actually hung something on the wall above this mantel! I kept the summer simple as I continue to go through a purging phase, and really love how it looks with fresh flowers.

mirrors and tall glass vase: Pottery Barn | blue/yellow vases: West Elm (and a gift from my amazing friend ML) | frame: Kohl's | starfish: small shop in Provincetown, Mass. (similar here)
