Let's Talk Mantels, Part Deux


Okay, technically, #4 isn't a mantel, but the concept would work for one. So many great ideas, I think. Is your mantel decorated for the holidays yet?

Hi Sandra,
I love the one with the red wall...I have seen it before and actually printed it out to put in my "do someday book." When (that's a big when) we move to the country that is what I want my wall behind my fireplace to look like.
Hope you are having a great week!

Yes the mantels are done, but neither as elaborate as some of these gorgeous mantels!

I'd have to say the one I like best is the lodgey one, with the stone fireplace and red wall.

Wow. Number 5 is striking. I have often heard designers say to go with a theme--and this definitely is running with it. Now, why didn't I think of that?

Thanks for visiting my blog too! I am so happy to have discovered your blog. I wish I remembered what path led me here. I'd like to add you to my blog roll too!

No. 6 knocks me out! I am loving the simple mantle and the over the top penquins. Debbie

Great mantle ideas! My last house didn't have a mantle over the fireplace, so in the new house I'm planning on at least four!!

Well Sandra, I wish I had a mantle! I think that these ideas could look really great on a bookshelf... so I've got hope!
Love the pictures you compiled.

So is your tree up and the mantel decorated yet? I thought sure it was time to see pictures. :)

Love all the mantels. Mine is silver and white this year in the LR. So I am loving any of them that are like that. This year anyway.

Hope you have a Merry Christmas!
