A romantic spring mantel is sometimes just what a girl needs. We all need a little bit of whimsy in our lives and to not take ourselves too seriously. Lets just say that this has been one of those weeks for me and leave it at that. I’m sharing my master bedroom mantel area and it’s the focal point of the room, opposite from our bed. We don’t want a tv in the room and it’s pretty much a haven to retreat to in the evening and read before dozing off for the night.
With a mantel as a focal point it’s a wonderful taking off point for adding design elements. I’ve added so many here seasonally like this COASTAL DISPLAY, and this ELEGANT MANTEL DISPLAY. Today it’s about something girly, and a bit shabby chic. Maybe a little over the top, but it’s temporary so why not indulge with a Romantic Spring Mantel
Romantic Spring Mantel
Sadly my flowers were at the stage of dropping lots of petals, so it was time to toss. At the point when you have flowers that are past their prime you can extend the life by flatlaying. Spread across a mantel or shelf and add some cut greens if you have a garden, or faux if you do not. To keep the flowers looking good for a few more days just spray with a mister. Keep that tip in mind if you DO have a garden and make those cuttings last!
French Bench and Flowers
A favorite French bench from At Home that normally holds an extra quilt at the end of the bed. Just for fun a vintage blush pink prom dress adds a pastel romantic touch. Layers of vintage frames and a vintage mannequin that sits in the corner of the bedroom to hold necklaces. I also use “her” as a model when I need to alter my own clothing.
Something pretty…a Romantic Spring Mantel.
Today some of my friends are sharing their beautiful and inspiring Spring mantel decor or a Spring vignette. Hop over to see what they are sharing…
