Do you know the feeling when you finally… and I mean FINALLY… create the perfect vignette or furniture arrangement for your home? After hundreds of tries and adding to and editing from your creation. Then, the seas calm and all is well and you feel like you won the lottery and God Bless America is playing in the background and you are having a great hair day all at the same time! I think my family room mantel is the hardest thing in my home to decorate! But I finally think I’ve got it just right… at least for this week. Here’s my summer mantel all perfect and ready to show off!
The mantel can be seen from my kitchen and breakfast nook. It also can be seen when you walk from the garage into our mudroom! So I think that finding the perfect “look” for my mantel is important.
I’m one of those home decorators that really like to change the mantel seasonally. Sometimes I get it right but sometimes I really miss the mark!!!! This mantel is one of my favorites! It works with my room and it has some fun elements that should take center stage in my room!
The mantel has not changed much since spring. I found a balance between chippy, burlap, farmhouse and upscale! One addition that I added were these pretty burlap blooms!
I love burlap. It’s a classic! I like the way burlap can bring a little rustic beauty to an upscale look!
Here’s a close up of these pretty burlap blooms!
I think I’ve found a mantel that I can finally say… “I love it!” At least, for now!
Right now I’m thinking about leaving this mantel pretty much the same with maybe an addition of a pumpkin or two… and maybe a garland!
