How to decorate a long mantle
We moved into our cottage about six months ago and ever since I have been struggling on how to decorate the mantle. The mantle area is approximately 15 feet long and covers the fireplace and adjoining cabinets on either side of the fireplace. There are 24 x 24 inch awning windows on either side of the fireplace. We live in a beach community, so I want a casual look. Should I decorate as one long mantle or segment the mantle? Any help would be appreciated!
