Rule #187: The Internet can be your very best friend.
Since we’ve been home so, SO, SOOOOO very much since Covid hit, I’ve been doing a bunch of different projects around the house. I’m sure y’all have, too! It gets hard day-after-day staring at the same ole, same ole. So, to spruce things up a bit, I decided to redo our fireplace mantle decor. This post is short-and sweet: just the items I’ve used to decorate and their links. Happy Friday, y’all!
This mirror was the centerpiece for my idea. I love the contrast of the black rim against the Austin stone. I searched forever for these black candlesticks and ended up going with these from Amazon over a set from Pottery Barn. They’re great quality and pair well with the black mirror.
My big splurge was on these stems from Crate & Barrel. I have some for now (Fiddle Leaf Fig) and some for the fall and winter (Olive Branch). The beaded garland is from a local boutique: The Brook Home & Gift (check them out – they’re amazing)!
These vases were the perfect height and depth for the mantle. I love their coloring, too!
I’ve had this topiary for a while now, and I’ve used it all over the house in different areas. I love it as a balancing piece to go with the Fiddle Leaf Fig stems on the right of the mantle. The decorative books (similar on Etsy) were an Amazon find. They came in a stack of four, so I separated them to put on either side of the mirror. I couldn’t bring myself to tear apart old books we already have (it’s the librarian in me). Plus, I love the color of these.
That’s all, y’all! Short-and-sweet. Happy FriYAY! May your margaritas be cold, and your queso spicy!
