This is an example of a well decorated mantel. Here are 3 easy steps to make your mantel look amazing…
1. Start with a large decorative mirror.
2. Anchor with 2 large vases which gives it symmetry and balance.
3. Select 3 smaller pieces from your home to place at the bottom.
Putting a room together starts with inspiration and usually that starts with interviewing the client. Getting a sense of what the clients likes or not is what I call the first consultation. This interview is very important for a designer to get a sense of how you use the room, who lives in the house, colours you like, style etc. etc. This living room design on the left was a referral from a pass client, which is always so very gratifying. The couple wanted a family room with a formal but relaxed feeling to both entertain and enjoy with extended family when they visit. I love it when a plan comes together.
