While I was in Carmel this past weekend I was in awe of my aunt and uncles renovated home because they still get to work with a blank canvas. All I could think of were the design possibilities that they have in their future. One of my favorite new elements is the large family room, which has a beautiful fireplace and with it’s minimalist mantle it was perfection. It got me thinking about what I would do if I had a mantle – would I keep it minimalist or make it more personal with a bunch of flea market treasures? I’m not quite sure, but there are so many possibilities. How would you decorate your mantle? Or if you have one, how did you decorate it? Chime in!
