Winter White Mantel

I thought it was high time to revamp my mantel (well, actually it’s the top of the tv cabinet but I decorate it as I would a mantel!!). I decided I would have it just silver and white but in the end I added a really old planter I had hidden away. It has some pretty blue flowers on it and I felt the whole look needed just a little colour. I already had some of the silver candlesticks up there so I just added a couple more. I ‘borrowed’ the lamp from the guest bedroom and the silver sticks in the jug are leftovers from  our daughters wedding which I sprayed silver long ago!!
I love the light from the lamp on the dull winter days. Actually today has been beautiful…….showers over night and sunshine during the day. Perfect!
The candle sticks were throwing some weird shadows on the walls late this afternoon! I have been to the beach house over the weekend and have been making a few little changes which I will share  when I have finished them next week.
Happy Monday!!

The silver is so elegant. I tend to think of silver more for New Year's or Christmas, great idea to use it for summer, makes me think of the sparkling sand on the beach. Something new to consider... Take care - Dawn @ We Call It Junkin

Love your vignette on the mantel. It is simplistic and tasteful. Do like the touch of blue on the vase.
