Hi! I’m Jessica, a writer from Arcadian Lighting, a wonderful website and blog where you can find beautiful light fixturesand daily interior design inspirations. I’m delighted to be guest posting for Angie today because I’m going to be sharing some beautiful vintage mantle decorations. Fireplaces tend to be the focal point of a room and how you decorate your mantle can really establish the feel of a room because it immediately attracts the eye. I hope these lovely mantles inspire you!
Beautiful shimmering accents adorn this stone fireplace. When the fire is lit, the gilded mirror and brass candle holders must glitter brilliantly in the evening, especially with the mercury glass mirrors behind them.
This handsome living room has the opposite effect with its black antique vase and candelabra. The contrast between dark and light is incredibly beautiful and sophisticated.
I love the row of vintage pewter plates along this mantle that add a beautiful sparkle and shine. These types of brilliant silver table lamps have the same effect.
Sometimes the simplest details are the most beautiful. The antique glass bottles have a rustic beauty that fits in with the shabby chic décor of the rest of the room.
The beautiful flea market finds throughout this living room have a lovely rustic charm, especially the distressed wooden sign placed before the large mirror. A pretty clear green lamp in the window doesn’t distract from the natural light.
Vases overflowing with roses and a vintage clock face are positively romantic and feminine on this rustic mantle. A shimmering silver candelabra and these types of wrought iron chandeliers complete the scene.
The aged and cracked paint only adds to the beauty of this mantle. Dried plants and vintage frames and pottery give this vignette a timeless romance.
This more masculine living room features beautiful antique trophies and antlers. The worn old suitcase and weathered books add even more rustic texture and style.
