Mantel Ideas
February 17, 2013 in Design Dilemma
We could use few ideas to help around our mantel area. The main focal point was place there for size only. We would like a more interesting look.

My first thought was that it would look good with a black metal 2d sculpture that is flat against the wall. Kind of branching out and filling the space without being too imposing.

too many little things over mantel...try to find one large painting. Also wondering if you could put a curtain rod at top to conceal the 1/2 round shape and pull light, airy curtains to each end of wall.

Get the windows involved, frame it. Build benches below the windows, some shelves inbetween them.
