This weekend we re-arranged the furniture & art in the living room. It feels SO much better. I’m not sure why it took me so long to do it because I’ve hated the way I’d initially laid out the room from the beginning. (I was probably stuck doing other projects.) Anyways…the one thing I haven’t had the energy to tackle is my weird fireplace facade and ugly mantle. I’m still not going to tackle it at the moment since it involves demolition and I’m in the throes of doing that in the half-bathroom. So I thought I’d just redecorate the mantle. Here are my inspiration pics.
We’re probably going with the last idea because the mantle itself is kinda wonky and might not hold anything really heavy. Plus we collect postcards from all of our travels. It could be a good way to show them off.
(Lastly, I wish I could give photo credit for these, but I only know two of them. The red sofa is from the Wallpaper Projects by Derek Fagerstrom and Lauren Smith. The last photo is from an old issue of Domino. I’ve had the others saved in my inspiration file for ages.)
