I am still trying to figure out how to decorate my mantel in the living room. Since we got the new furniture I have been toying around with different ideas. Either I will make it symmetrical like in the picture below that I found on Google images.
Or maybe I should use some lanterns as in this picture that I also found on Google.
Here is what my mantle looks like right now. The clock and sconces will stay. I hung the sconces away from the mantel so they wouldn't be in the way if I put tall items there.
I think that I am leaning towards putting some lanterns, pottery and greenery on there so I can incorporate some Spring decorations easily. With some luck I might even get it done this weekend.
