An {Elegant} Woodland Inspired Mantel

This years mantel in the living room is similar to last year, but with some added elements.

I wanted a fuller look, and did so by adding plenty of real magnolia leaves, a few faux magnolia flowers on long, iced branches, peacock feathers and a few ornaments in the center.

I also added two faux, iced orchid branches to the silver vases.

Next I will show you the other side of the fireplace. Our fireplace is doubled sided, but the sunroom side is very different from the living room side.

Linking my {elegant} woodland mantel to these parties:

Soo pretty! It really meshes with the style of your home and that makes it even more beautiful! I love the peacock feathers too! So jealous that you have this done - mine is still a work in progress. Fireplace redo is still in progress! There is a light at the end of the tunnel though!

Andrea what attracted to your blog last year was your beautiful home. I hope you know how lucky you are to have such a gorgeous fireplace. I had to give up my fireplace when I bought my condo but I'm contemplating having an electric one put it. Your home is wonderful. Carol

It looks so elegant - and woodsy. I love the icicles hanging down on either side.

A woodland theme is just perfect for your home with all of that pretty stained wood in your home! I like how you added some elegant touches along with it too.
