Again, in keeping with my theme of simple, this mantel is as simple as it can get! You may have heard me say before how excited I have been to finally have a mantel to decorate around in this room. It is a skinny little shelf to enjoy but it gets the job done ;).

I grabbed a collection of my white vases varying in heights and shapes (many of these have been thrifted through the years)…

And scattered them across my narrow mantel. I kept the mirror as the focal point as I have already been doing these past few months.

Greenery sits on each end of the fireplace both in a small pot and then a large pot. It creates the visual of having green encasing the area but keeping it organic by using different shape/styles of plants.

I really enjoy this type of decorating as it involved taking what I already had at home and making it new! Funny how an arrangement of monochromatic pieces can still be simple, yet dramatic.

I hope this little post may have brought some inspiration your way today as you enjoy your homes throughout this summer.

And don’t forget to go say hello to all the wonderful friends down below who are sharing their mantel/vignettes today too! Thanks so much for stopping by all!

I’m so excited that the Seasonal Simplicity series is back again; and this time it’s to celebrate Summer! Today I’ve joined up with a talented group of bloggers to share our simple and beautiful summer mantel {or summer vignette} ideas with you! Enjoy the inspiration…
