Y’all know how much I LOVE redoing our mantel right? Well it was time for another switcheroo since summer is almost here (yay!), and so I wanted to bring in some bright cheery colors, and since I can’t get enough of yellow these days, yellow and aqua is what landed on the mantel this time.
And what’s even better is that I didn’t buy anything for it except for the fresh flowers! Most everything, like all of the aqua glass bottles and mirror were from our master bedroom when it was blue. But now the bedroom isn’t blue anymore, it’s grey. :) Blue walls I found out real quick I get tired of, but blue accessories here and there, I like.
The lemons were just to add a touch more yellow to this side of the mantel to even it out. :)
And a few more because I always go overboard with my mantel pics.
Do I dare say that this may be my favorite one since I think I say that each time I redo it? :) But what I do love the most about this mantel is that there is NO way I could have ever used these colors with the old camel colored walls. And now these colors fit in perfectly with the new decor and colors throughout the house. Yay! Neutral walls with whatever color you want as accents is such a great concept. I wish I would have understood that a few years ago. ;)
And if you aren’t familiar with all of this crazy camel wall talk, you can check out the Our Home tab and see all of the most recent makeovers to the house, with plenty of before and afters so you can see what I’m talking about. The entryway and the living room used to be camel. :)
