Summer always inspires me to add a little extra greenery and color to my interior.  I’ve been struggling to figure out what to do with our fireplace mantel.  We are currently renting, so I don’t want to attempt to put a nail above the mantel.  I’m pretty sure my hammer and nail would be greeted with some not so friendly brick.  I’ve tried the leaning mirror (and currently have this look), but all it reflects is the unattractive ceiling fan.

The ceiling fan is more noticeable in person (stop by I’ll show you).


I went poking around the internet for some inspiration on fireplace mantels…here are the results.

I’m loving the idea of the shutters for added color.  What’s your favorite?
