I think what a person has on their mantel says a lot about them. The fireplace is often the focal point of a room, so whatever someone chooses to display there is usually a reflection of them and what they like.
Lots of family photos show someone is family-oriented. A mantel packed with knickknacks means they’re a collector. A stark mantel may mean someone is a minimalist, while a perfectly symmetrical display may show someone is very organized. See what I mean? A mantel is worth a thousand words!
When it came to decorating our mantel, Chris pretty much let me decide how to decorate it. I put a few of my favorite trinkets on it, of course! I tried to make it look romantic and a little shabby chic, and I put up a couple of our photos for a personal touch. I tried to keep it somewhat symmetrical, but I didn’t want to make it too perfect :).
So tell me, what’s on your mantel?
