One of the spaces I decorate frequently in our casa is the fireplace mantel in the living room. We spend a lot of our time in our living room and when you see the same thing over and over new gets old very quickly. To keep things looking fresh, I create new vignettes every six-to-eight weeks, or at least try to.
Here is a sneak-peek of my a look I am currently working on between my other projects.
Black tapers in brass and crystal candlesticks.
I love the eclectic feel to this little vignette. A mix of styles, colors and materials. I love the effect of the black tapers.
At some point I want to find art to replace the mirror but, for now, this thrifted $14 find lets me change things around easily.
During the holidays, I painted the frame a candy red.
For my new look, I am thinking of painting the frame black. Here is where I need your help.
a. paint it black
b. paint it another color. white or bright yellow, perhaps? feel free to suggest one.
c. leave it the way it is.
Help me decorate this space.
