As soon as I saw this I had to share it with you all! I love the quirky touch to the pile by the random burst of colour painted onto the side of the wood. Not only is it fun, but it also makes an everyday view (if you’re lucky to have an open fire, that is!) into a stunning focal point for a home.
Mantlepieces are such romantic statements in a room, especially when they are as decorative as these two! I have collated a post before (see here) on the versatility of a mantle and I thought I’d put together these two images to inspire you further. I love the idea of using candles to replicate a fire.
If you’re lucky enough to have a beautiful fireplace and mantlepiece as a focal point in your home, use it to the best of it’s ability!
Use the shelf of the mantle to hold cute cards or invitations you’ve received, scatter candles elegantly along it or use it as a bookcase. The possibilities are endless. I love mantlepieces and fire places so much that I’ve got a Pinterest board dedicated to them!
