Critique my mantle! Help!
I can not figure out how to decorate my mantle for the life of me. I've tried a million different things arranged a million different ways. Please give suggestions/advice. The room is painted a light gray with white trim. My taste is a vintage-y/country/natural vibe. The sofa is cream colored and the room is accented with blues and natural material items with hints of gold thrown in. The art above the mantle will stay. I made it, therefore I love it and it doubles as a cover for two large sconce holes in the stone that I had to cover. My main dilemma is the dang outlet right in the center. You can see the plethora of items I've toyed with in the bottom of the picture. Any feedback is much appreciated!
