Summer Mantle

The summer mantle!  What to do??  It's easy to decorate your mantle for fall and Christmas, and even Spring.  But summertime always leaves me a little less then creative!!  So I recently found a post on Red Door Home displaying a beautiful mantle.  Will it work??  I will certainly try.
The interview was with a very talented designer, Donna Talley. This is her mantle design.

This is what I have to work with :-(
 

I don't have the gorgeous clock, but Donna's design gave me the idea how to dress up the mantle for a summery look.



I love that I can display my Lenox collection.  The clock works in harmony with the picture. 

It's a start :-)

Love that you have a mantle!! Your white pieces are beautiful, maybe add some flowers from your garden to make a bold statement.

The clock and the picture do work well together and the mantel is a marvelous way to display a lovely collection. I do appreciate you sharing with A Return to Loveliness,
