How-to: Restyle Your Mantle
With warm weather headed our way, now is the perfect time to clear out winter and welcome the sunshine! I’m going to start by re-styling the mantel. Removing all art and accessories from the mantle and start with a clean slate. Then, select your focal point. Try out different art pieces and mirrors. I went with a mirror because I wanted some sparkle. Don’t be shy about your focal piece. Go big and bold. Hunt through your home, or in store for something grand! Next, add a sculptural element: a statue, obelisk or bust. I chose the whale vertebrae sculpture, because it’s the perfect companion to the porthole mirror.
Now you’re ready for a splash of fresh flora! I used a glass vase to keep it airy and add more of that sparkle. The stems will balance the sculpture without being too symmetrical.
Last but not least, I added ocean glass bottles for some color. Voila! You have a freshly styled mantel that will take you into fall.
