I want something nice on my fireplace but not sure what will not nice. I have a old clock there but it needs something seems like to drape down on the sides any suggestions?
maybe some long ivy on both sides and tyr painting if you can a diffrent color like a accent color that will look nice
ivy would look pretty but go with the fake ones lol no up keep no dying out on you hang a nice pic above it also
and dont forget to decorate for the seasons also! some pine cones and colored leaves for the fall would look awesome! just place the colored leaves and both sides of the mantl the place the cones on top
brining out colors will make it great also that way your eye wil go to the mantle adn get noticed
A stack of books and great artwork (b&w photos?) are a sure thing, always.
Depending on how deep the mantle is, you could put a runner on the mantle shelf that would hang down over the ends and maybe over the front...
