Home Portfolio: Decorating the Mantel

An antique English mirror is an impressive visual backdrop for the symetrical design motif on the mantel. The pairs of matching live ivy topiary and antique Meissen plates add visual interest. The small English tea box centers the display. Putting objects in front of the mirror and using objects with graduated heights keeps the room feeling more cozy than formal.
