Classic Accessories for the Mantle

I have changed my mantle several times over, including new paint on the surrounding wall and new paint over the existing tiles.  I hope someday to be at peace with my mantle.

April 2010

Here are some fireplaces from the last several decades:


Lots of small scale accessories.


Corner fireplace, asymmetrical.


Rustic materials and finishes.  Big scale items.


Flashy traditional style (look at all of that tufting!).
The frilly decade.

I wouldn't mind going more this route (above).  This style is so much more timeless.  How to get the look of a wealthy interior without spending a fortune?  The eternal question.
