I’ve had lots of request for tips for styling a mantel, and the only way I could think to show you was to style it few different ways and talk you through it! So here it goes! Before you even start, walk around your house and grab everything that might work on a mantel.
Today I thought it might be kind of fun to give you a *modified* version of my home tour. One that better explains the decisions I’ve made with my five kids in mind! When someone asks about my design style… I’m usually pretty quick to explain that I love color, I want my decorating to reflect our personality, and it’s got to stand up to kids. Style and children CAN play nicely together, but it takes a little practice!
Choosing aforementioned color and pattern can be the MOST overwhelming process. We have a handful of fabric places nearby and *maybe* one wallpaper source but honestly, I much prefer ordering these things online. It may cost $20 or so in order to get swatches, but I’d much prefer to peruse and gather my choices from my couch with some tween show playing on Netflix. These are some tips that will hopefully make the whole process easier!
