If I had a dollar for every time I’ve heard, “I just don’t know what to do with my mantel,” I could at least take a couple friends to cocktails with my earnings! (Wait! My friends really, really like cocktails! I could probably only invite one friend!). I digress…but yes…mantel styling can be a pesky enterprise. But sometimes a mantel’s problem is not only the mantel itself, but the entire fireplace wall.
I present to you to you a calm, cool and collected living room and fireplace feature wall that is stylish but also comfortable and livable!!! Can you say gorgeous?? Alas, it was not always the case. When I came on the scene, the homeowners yearned for a much more contemporary space and the fireplace and mantel that came with the house was anything but! It was nice…if you like uber traditional fireplace walls without much personality. So…I fixed it (wink, wink)!
