After Valentine's day passed, I needed to make a few updates to my mantle. I replaced the "love" art with a botanical print from a thrifted book I have. But, the mat was just a teeny bit too large. This gold, metallic tape from Target was just what it needed. I created a border around the edge to hold the print in place.
I think it adds a glamorous edge to an otherwise traditional print.
I also added these x benches in front of the fireplace. I've been feeling like the corner fireplace was sort of an afterthought and I think the benches help incorporate it into the rest of the room. The extra seating is a nice bonus too.
I'm loving the addition of the green too. I actually switched up some of the accent pillows on the sectional as well and it feels like this room is finally starting to come together!
