Winter Mantle

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!

The green x benches really complete that space! I think the tape border looks awesome too! May I ask where (which aisle) you found it at Target? -Robin @ www.designbyrobinsnest.blogspot.com
