My Everyday Mantel



Welcome if you are coming from the Kelly's Korner link up for "Show us your mantels".

This is what I call my "everyday" mantel. I tried to vary the heights, keep it predominately red, add in a little sage green to match my furniture and keep the scale large. Since my mantel is built all the way to the ceiling, anything small scale gets lost. I am so not a decorator, but I'm happy with how it looks.

My favorite part of decorating for holidays is being creative with my mantel. My fall mantel will go up in October and stay decorated until Thanksgiving when it changes to Christmas. I will post photos in the fall:)

Have a great weekend! I am off to the pool with my daughters. The Hunger Games is the book in my pool bag and I am determined to finish it today :)
