Mantel help, please???
So now we've come to the part of decorating in the new house that I'm terrible at- accessorizing, fluffing, zushing, etc. I have no idea how! I'm starting with the mantel, because it's the smallest area and therefore the least scary. We'll move on to the bookshelves later.
So WWHDDFD? For an idea of scale, the mantel is 7' long and 5'4" high. Ceiling is 12'. I'm going to hang the painting, I'm thinking the bottom should be about 6" off the mantel. Correct? Then add.....what? Symmetrical or no? Bookshelves aren't. What accessories should I be looking for? Height? Size? Color? I'm lost! Please help me!!!
