I’ve been fixated on simple, clean decor as of late. I knew I wanted the spring mantel to reflect that. I’m still working on the bookcase project as well so the less busy the better. I kept these photos cropped to keep the bookshelf under wraps.
Those eggs are from Michael’s last year.
The wreath below needs a dose of spring flowers. I don’t have any in the yard yet and the fake ones looked fake. I’m still working on that. Consider this look pre-spring just like the weather.
The “nest” pennant is a new addition. I made that on Friday on a whim.
With daylight savings time, I’m seeing more light in this room. The mirror really sparkles!
I used the candlestick holders from the dining room. The boxwood balls are sitting in bowls from my dining set. The gold footed bowl was a recent HomeGoods purchase.
I realize that the mantel is probably more visually appealing without the pennant but I’m a sucker for a little does of cute here and there. Also, the look wasn’t overly spring without it.
Did you do a spring mantel? Feel free to put a link in the comments if you did. I would love to see yours! We got a dose of spring weather this weekend – I can’t wait for the real deal.
