I’ve been talking all week about the mix of traditional and modern elements in the Room of the Week. And, the styling of the mantel in the room is a perfect example of how to match the architecture of a home with a new modern style – and the result is a beautiful vignette that looks classic, collected and casual.
I put together a little formula based on the mantel in this room, and then created a few different variations on the theme so you can see how this would work in a variety of settings. Don’t forget to think about scale and balance when you are creating your own version.
SCENARIO 1: Collection of Vases | Mirror | Hour Glass | Rope Knot
SCENARIO 2: Brass Swans | Mirror | Modern Glass Vase
SCENARIO 3: Patterned Bowls | Bird Vase | Potted Cypress | Mirror | Clock
I love that these mantels look put-together, but totally feasible. What do you think of the mix of styles?
ps. – here’s another formula for an asymmetrical mantel that you might enjoy…
