My Friend Buffy asked me what to do with her fireplace "what to do above the fireplace please. symmetrical or not? i am obsessed and have not been able to find anything inspiring."
Buffy: Definitely NOT symmetrical! Take everything off you mantle ... go ahead I'm waiting..... OK now put tall flowers on one side in a white Ikea tin pitcher ($19) and a small white ceramic bird on the other side et Voila you are ready for a Elle Decor closeup. Here are some mantels that I give the thumbs up to.
Love this ... Clean simple chic... Hate when there are to man Tchotchkys on the FP. Via Decorpad

Elle Decor... One Bird thats it!
