Help with Mantel Decor
I never know what looks good on a mantel. This fireplace is in my bedroom, and we are close to the ocean so I thought a nautical theme would be appropriate. It just never looks right to me. Here's what I've come up with. I've also posted pics with the area clear so you can play around with it, too. Any suggestions? The area from the mantel to the ceiling is 30" tall by 5' wide...I do hate the brass, and I'm not opposed to painting it, but we are planning a move soon and want to do as little as we can get away with. I don't think it's bad. I do think the sconce shades might be too big.
