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 a keen traveller and want to have a cute reminder of where you’ve visited and when, then this is the perfect inspiration for you. You can pin a map to a board and use tacks to point locations, and then hang tabs with the dates you went or memories from your stay.
Not only is this idea functional and a constant source of conversation for your family and friends, it’s your own piece of art that will be unique to you.
