A Formula to Simply Style Your Mantle

Danielle Colding

Danielle Colding, the designer behind the Room of the Week, is kinda a master at styling the perfect vignette.  For example…those bookshelves walk the perfect line between styled and overstyled.

And, my favorite moment is the simple, but beautiful fireplace styling. It is decorative but not cluttered and is a nice resting place from the busyness of the bookshelves nearby.

And, it’s a formula that works for almost any style and space…some kind of art in the middle with a large piece of sculpture on one side and a trio (or other odd number) of candlesticks on the other.  Here’s a few little scenarios I did to test the formula and show you how it works for so many styles!
