If you follow me on Instagram, you probably saw a photo of me playing around with my mantel. It had been the same for a while, ever since this post. Here's a refresher:
I took down the candle holder sconces (why I ever put those up, I have no idea). I know it's time for Fall-themed mantels in blogland, but I gave up most seasonal decorating a few years ago. It was time for a change, however, so this is what I ended up with!
I love the stacked art look, so I decided that this was the perfect place to try it out. I left the mirror as well, because I still love it.
This is a DIY painting that I snagged from my TV gallery wall. It kind of matches my knockoff West Elm art, but I thought that the mantel needed something black and white and graphic.
I've also been adding to my collection of blue and white ginger jars, so I grouped them together in the corner.
The larger frame contains a painting of Canterbury Cathedral in England. H found it at an estate sale for a few dollars, and had to buy it for a few reasons: one, I studied Renaissance Literature in college (and this is the cathedral from The Canterbury Tales), and second...
...we visited Canterbury during our trip to London last year!
So there you have it! Just a few simple and easy updates to give it a whole new look. Do you decorate for the seasons?
