It’s been awhile since I’ve taken photos inside my house. Guess I’ve been so busy enjoying the outdoors that I’ve neglected interior spaces. But I got up a little bit of energy and inspiration to create a transitional mantel – one that will take me from summer into early fall. (This post contains affiliate links.)
One thing I haven’t neglected inside are my houseplants. At left is a basic philodendron, at right is a beautiful hoya, and below the mantel is a brasil philodendron – one of my fave houseplants.
My large amber bottle takes center stage on my transitional mantel and then everything else kind of gathers around it. I always use books to give height to items when needed. I think I added that candle last fall and loved the way the wax dripped down so I’ve kept it in place ever since.
My gorgeous hoya is tucked inside a beautiful wooden Ukrainian bread bowl from Bloomist. Hoya are fairly easy to grow – I have three of them.
This soft sheep on wheels is my newest acquisition. I found her at a baby clothing store and thought she’d look cute on my transitional mantel.
She resides next to the philodendron in one of my favorite pottery planters by Tall Pine Pottery.
I’m not completely satisfied with the color of my vintage mantel and am toying with an idea for this space. I think it’s a change I’m going to love but that’s all I’m going to say for now.
If I don’t make the change to this room before my fall home tour, I’ll for sure have it done in time for the Christmas tour. Stay tuned!
