I started to think about mantelpieces in homes when I was inspired by users on Instagram that asked everyone to show their mantelpieces. It was interesting to see such a varied collection of treasured items. I am not a fan of clutter but nor do I like the minimalist look, a happy medium I would say.
Here are some of my favourites:
I like the black and white and added bright pink and yellow on this mantelpiece.
I like the bright pink letters below that seem such a contrast to the other items displayed.
The mantel below belongs to Cath Kidston, I like the co-ordination of colours and the artwork displayed.

Letters are becoming increasingly popular and the mantelpiece seems a perfect place to display them. I like this collection of different styles and sizes.
These two fireplaces are the same but have been styled very differently, the second is my favourite with the collection of lovely vintage mirrors.
Here is my mantelpiece:
I collected colourful vases to match the colours in the painted tile on the opposite side. This tile is a painting of the sand dunes I visited in Brazil when on honeymoon with my husband and the artist painted the tile as we watched. I loved all the sunset colours.
