Fall mantel

Nester's having a Fall Mantel Party!

So I'll show you the mantel in my husband's study. See the stone fireplace on the left in this photo?


That's the fireplace for my husband's study. It's one of our favorite features in the house.

His study is a fairly dark and cozy space, which makes for a very inviting room, but it's hard to get good photos. But here's one of the mantel itself:



Since this is my husband's space, he gets to choose what's what. He particularly likes nautical art, so he loves the framed prints in his study. As for the mantel itself, my husband wants photos of our family. I can't complain about that! So I just added a few little accessories to make it look warm and inviting for fall.

These photos are dark, but they give you a feel for the fireplace in the room:




I love a chair and ottoman by a fireplace. It took me awhile to find a leather club chair that would fit in this little corner but still be deep enough to accommodate my husband's 6'7" frame. This one is made by Bassett Furniture, and it's just right.

Check out Nester's party for lots of mantel inspiration!

GASP! I don't know that I've ever seen the exterior of your house, and I'm in LOVE. I've always wanted/dreamed of having an l-shaped home. There is something so incredibly charming about them! And don't even get me started on your fireplace! We want to do a stacked stone in our basement, and I'll be saving this to my idea file! Beautiful, Richella!
