A couple months ago we picked up a few states pictures for the mantle in our family room. There are actually two mantles in the room – a lower one over the fireplace and a higher one at the top. We thought putting really old books across the top could look cool, but we didn’t have very many books to use. Then I was watching HGTV and got the idea to use the books we already have, but turned around!
Coupled up with a vintage globe and a whimsical blue owl!
We love it! Of course, if I ever decide to reread any of those books, it’ll take me awhile to find it, but that’s okay. They’re mostly classics that I love and want to have, but don’t read for years.
What house or design projects have you worked on lately?
