Since we moved into our house a few years ago I have struggled with how to accesorize our fireplace. I have seen beautifully accessorized fireplaces on magazines and online but found it difficult to translate the ideas into our space. I imagine this is mostly because of the height of our two story living room walls. They create a nice, open room, full of light, but are hard to style. Anyway, after struggling for so long I finally reached an arrangement I like.
The large mirror helps create some definition for the space. I added the three red cups for a punch of color to our mostly beige/black living room. The fireplace itself has changed quite a bit. We had a tile surrounding and when we removed the original carpet (and installed tile) we replaced the surrounding for this stone look. I like it, but I am not sure I love it as much as I though I would. Anyway, it'll stay, at least for now.
So, how do you mantelscape? Do you change the decor of your fireplace according to the season?
