MANTLE PINSPIRATION

have to admit, this whole "house decorating" thing has been a slow process for us. We've got all the basic furniture now and decor, but our poor mantle is still needing some love. It's my project for this month and I needed some inspiration, so of course I turned to Pinterest! Seriously, what would we do without it? Here are some of my favorites:
I love the idea of a gallery wall above the mantle; it's different and creative and you can switch up the pictures depending on season! 

Gahhh, this greenery is making me swoon. I love how it adds a garden feel to the room and instantly makes it feel cozier! 

Simple and elegant, just how I like it. I think we'll probably do something like this because it's easy and no fuss. I need to go find some candles now! I'm also loving the flower in the actual fireplace.

I've seen the framed fireplace more and more and can't decide if I like the look or not. I don't think it'd work in our flat, but I've seen it done really well in other homes! 

How have you guys decorated your mantles? I'd love any tips or ideas! 

Xoxo,
Karen
