LA Good Questions: What Would You Put On This Mantle?

LA Good Questions: What Would You Put On This Mantle?

Have you ever noticed that when there are no limitations, the decisions are a lot harder to make? This query feels like one of those times. One of our buddies has finally gotten around to decorating her living room and left the fireplace mantle for last. Her mantle has been housing 'placeholder items' that she already had until she "figured something out"--and now she's stuck!

We like the hurricanes, but they look a bit washed out on the beige wall. The mantle is pretty long (about 4 ft), and the ceilings are high; so we're thinking a group of tall vases would be nice--maybe with some flowers or foliage to give it some texture and color?

Anyone have any suggestions?
