Simple Mantel: Nature + A Touch of Glam

After switching out mirrors in our living room, I was craving a more paired down mantel. I like to keep things fresh and simple. I wanted to infuse just a bit of color to play off the rest of the space and was looking for something a bit more fun and unique to place on the candle holders. These sweet little bowls accomplish just that. The colors pull from the other fabrics in the room but aren’t too over powering.

There is nothing more simple and elegant than fresh cut greens. We are blessed with a magnolia tree and the branches are always so pretty. They are a nice contrast with the neutral mantel.

These sweet bowls were an easy way to tie in the color we have going on in the room and yet still keep it simple. We are all about simple. The magnolia branches add the warmth and natural element I crave in my spaces. And a special shout out to our late Grandfather who made the most gorgeous wooden trucks for our son. They are a treasure and we love playing with them.

The scarf is so great in person. I wish I would have picked one up. Super cute with the wedge boots.  And you can’t beat the price on those heels. They also come in leopard. I just made some pillows for my daughter’s room and have d├ęcor on the brain. The Nordstrom home section has some great buys during this sale. We are white coffee mug people and these are my favorite shape. Enjoy the day, my friends. See you back here on Monday.
