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!

The Anatomy of a Traditional + Modern Room

A few weeks ago I spotted the home tour of interior designer Danielle Colding on Design Sponge. I fell in love with her style, and immediately clicked on the link to her website to look at her portfolio.  She does such a great job mixing styles and creating rooms that are both tailored and comfortable.

I picked one of her rooms as the Room of the Week…let’s jump right in to looking at the design elements at work in this space!

The Anatomy of a Modern + Traditional Living Room | www.theanatomyofdesign.comI cannot stop picking rooms with this red/orange shade to feature here on my blog…maybe I should use it somewhere in my own house so I can stop obsessing over it online!

I’ll be back tomorrow to share more great moments from this room.
