2015 Fall Mantel and Following My Heart

We have been blessed with a beautiful foliage this year in New Hampshire. The colors are just breathtaking.
Rather than competing with Mother Nature, I chose to create a Fall Mantel with a subtle, hushed tone.
It may not fit in with traditional fall decor, but instead fits my style. I gathered and placed simple items, varying textures, hints of seasonal colors and touches of greenery.
The sunburst mirror is made from wood shims. I finished it with shades of grays, tans and golds and a final wipe of stain to give it an aged and distressed look.
A cozy, minimalist and rustic look that speaks to me. A sparse grouping of everyday objects that quietly reflect the season at hand.

    Your fireplace is MAGNIFICENT. The mirror is just a work of art.. smart idea! And luv the draping sprigs of fall foliage. One thing missing on that side...Clear glass, canister candles, in 3 sizes, mimicking the flames below.. (But that's just me & my candle obsession). You lucky girl, this is stunning!

      @Mickey B. & Boo Boo Thank-you for the sweet compliment. Candles do add something special to any space they are in.
