With the move officially happening this weekend I've kicked my inspiration hunting into high gear. One of the things I love about the new house is the recessed mantle over the fireplace in the living room/kitchen area seen in the picture below (right).
But I need some help! I knew from the beginning that I wanted to showcase something along the lines of a mix of art, photographs, some kind of vase or other decoration, candles, and typography. I love each of the following inspiration photos for different reasons.
My problem lies with the recessed portion. Arranging items along the front ledge looks nice but you can clearly see that the back portion is an open, empty space. We have a gorgeous mirror that we currently have no spot for and I'm hoping that it might fit in there to fill the space, but perhaps the reflection of the items standing in front of it will make it look too busy?! See why I'm at a loss?
I'd love some suggestions from all you lovely savvy home decor lovers out there!
