Casa Quickie: Think Outside the Mantel

Those of you who are lucky enough to have a fireplace mantel are probably overflowing with ideas about what to set on it and what to hang above it. Vases. Candlesticks. Objets d'art. Photographs. Paintings. Perhaps the most intriguing solution to this dilemma is to leave the space above the mantel blank.

In this living room, you'd expect to see the mirror hung above the mantel, but instead you find it on the adjacent wall. And the set of subtle, white candlesticks give the space polish, keeping it from appearing abandoned. It's captivating, surprising, and fresh! Try thinking outside the mantel in your home.

Interesting. I like the room above, but I just think most mantels would look naked without anything above them.
