Special Nonexistent Furniture

Looking for a quick, budget-friendly update? Rearrange your current mantel display for a fresh look. 
Instead of placing wall art centered above a mantel, opt for an asymmetrical arrangment for a more
​dynamic look. 
Create depth by layering different sized accents, whether it's with florals, art, or even clocks! 
For more visual appeal, try accessorizing with accents that vary in size and shape (see right).
Keep it simple by decorating with a few key pieces, such as over-sized hurricanes, vases, or a neat row of books. 

Create a whole new look above your fireplace with a 
freshly updated mantel. A main focal point in most living rooms, a mantel is the perfect stage to visually express your dazzling personality and style. Get started by picking a specific theme, such as a color palette or your favorite collection, like this array of old-world style clocks (see left). Use this as an opportunity to carry in bits and pieces of your room's existing decor, whether it's a specific hue from a color palette or a whimsical motif spotted in an accent pillow.
