I have been playing mantels again. This time I was in a summery mood, so I went for the ultimate summer color combination. Blue and white.
Well more of an aqua actually but that is even more summer, isn’t it.
It all started with some necklaces I made with gorgeous shells from a vacation in New Zealand. I saw them hanging on my jewelry display and longed to be dressed in all white with these as color accents around my neck.
The weather still isn’t good enough to be dressing all in white, so instead I used my dressed-in-white mantel and accessorized her up in my favorite color of the week.
I remembered these led lights from my Christmas decorations and I thought their rather blue-ish light would fit right in.
The aqua vase and aqua glasses are from IKEA, and the rest you have seen a million times by now.
The flowers are pretty good fakes, so I’ll be able to keep this mantel up a bit longer. Which is a good thing because I think it is my favorite mantel from all of my mantel transformations.
Who would have thought that one little all white mantel decoration could be so versatile and easy to change.
Well that is of course the beauty of a good white baseline, it is such a wonderful backdrop for everything else.
Yeah, I think this one is my favorite.
How about you? Which one did you prefer?
I’d love to hear.
