My sun room mantel is always changing. The only constant is the vintage Greek Key mirror which, for me, provides a perfect backdrop for my re-decorating compulsion.
I decided that the container filled with shells and painted Harry Lauder Walking Stick branches would look very good reflected in the mirror. So, I moved it from this mirrored table.
And, I placed it on the mantel with some other coastal accessories.
To complement the vase and branches, I used my Zgallerie faux coral, some antique leather books, and also my Pottery Barn platter. I love the way my bamboo chandelier and my pull-down classroom shell map reflect in the mirror.
In front of the books are some weighted tassels.
Up-side down and cascading they remind me of an anemone.
And you know I have a chair obsession.
These bamboo Chinese Chippendale chairs are one of my favorites
I can't forget the book with the coral on the cover on the Asian chest.
I like the cover as much as the images inside.
So what do you think about the sea life inspired change up?
