Decorating fireplace mantels

Location 78

I finally have a fireplace again in my living room (I had one 2 houses ago) and this time it is beautiful, a centrepiece of the room with a mantel deep enough to display pretty much anything. As seen in my last post of the space, I had stuck some off-white West German vases on it with all the dried flowers I had around, my Vladimir Tretchikoff Green Lady print I unpacked from my art stash in the basement and some little ornaments I picked up in Puerto Vallarta I have not figured out where to hang yet. I thought over the weekend that maybe it was about time to think about redoing this set-up...and I could not really come up with anything. Time for a fireplace mantel round-up for inspiration! Here are a bunch of mantels I found all over the internet that I really like. Especially the one above. :-)

Art, and how to display it

My favourite art medium is photography. One of my biggest pet peeves is how photography framed behind glass only seems to show really awful glares if there is a window in the room. The worst is trying to photograph this. Plus, framing costs a fortune. The photograph above is fantastic, and the simple way in which it is hung, without a frame and possibly laminated, is a great solution. I have a photo of my Himalayan fluffball Milo that I want to blow up and laminate (on a thin backing) like this, and I'm even more sure now that this is the way to go.
