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.
A special thanks to Krista at The Happy Housie for organizing today’s tour of spring mantels and vignettes. See more Seasonal Simplicity inspiration at the links below. You’re sure to find plenty of inspiration and eye candy!
