Spring decorating is in full force this week at my house. Yesterday I shared my spring sitting room and today I’m sharing the other side of the room. A spring mantel, which is decorated with a few blue and green items that caught my eye in my favorite store.
During a recent trip to Cocoon in Geneva, I spied beautiful vases in shades of blue and green. Cocoon is located in an historic home and I love wandering from room to room, knowing that each space holds something wonderful.
I saw the little glazed vases in the third room. The third room always holds my favorite finds.
And I knew I had to have these beauties for my spring mantel.
Then I saw this sweet little landscape canvas propped on its little easel and I knew I was a goner.
The colors in both the paintings I chose pair perfectly with the glazed vases.
The spring wreath above the mantel looks like it’s made of beer hops. I’m pretty sure that’s what it is. For the record, I don’t like beer. I prefer a glass of red wine.
Faux branches are tucked inside the larger green vases on my spring mantel.
What’s nice about the vases and mini canvases is that I can group them elsewhere to create new vignettes.
Let’s hope spring comes sooner rather than later!
