My Summer Mantle {mantel}

It’s about time, right?  I actually finished this up a couple of weeks ago, but am just now getting around to sharing my summer mantle.  I wanted to keep this mantel simple but layered, and in keeping with a summertime and travel theme.  Did I hit the mark?

The painting of the little girl running in the waves is something I purchased a few years ago at a Special Olympics art auction.  It reminds me of my daughter.   Of course, my map candles are here, along with a piece of wood that washed up on the beach in Destin a few months ago.  The Cordova candle sconces are available in my online Willow House store.  The urn and wooden spheres are retired Willow House pieces.  And what is a coastal theme without a shell?

We’re enjoying all the different textures and the browns and blues of the beach!

Did you change up your mantle this summer?

  11. Well done Heidi! Very nicely balanced!

  12. I’m not really a mantle- changer, I’m barely even a mantle-scaper!

    Love how beachy and summery it feels:)
