After Christmas Fireplace Mantel re-do
After the Christmas decorations are down the house can seem bare. So I tried a different mantel arrangement to bring a little lift to the mid winter depleted looking decor.
I pulled out some willow platters and blue and white plates I had in the hutch. I added some covered tureens and my cute little spaniels.
The look and feel are really brightening up the room.
Here is a closer look at my little spaniel. He is carrying a basket of berries in his mouth.
I have a definite desire for symmetrical. Atleast I prefer symmetrical in my Williamsburg style dining room. The formal fireplace mantel tends to lend itself to a traditional look.
