I kept the mantlescape devoid of too much color, and I'm enjoying the simplicity of it right now. With the green/white/grey kick I found myself on in the kitchen, I just carried it into the living room. But I know myself, the warmer it gets, the more color I'll crave. That will just be another excuse to change up the mantle again. :)
I typically use candles in the non-working fireplace, but since I used a collection of votives on the mantle plus two big candles, I decided to put my grapevine spheres in instead. I found those at Target 2 or 3 years ago.
I love having the big round 40" mirror above the mantle, but for a change I've been considering doing a large canvas instead, maybe something for this summer. Surely, I can pull off some colorful abstract art! :)
We'll see how it goes...
For now though, it's green, cream and serene (and clean, yay! :).
Thank you so much for stopping by! I hope you are inspired to do a pre-spring mantlescape at your house!
