Summer Mantel

Hi everyone,
hope you're all enjoying the beautiful summertime!


I know it's the middle of summer and I'm just getting around to showing you my summer mantel,
better late than never I always say!

I kept the beautiful blue chinese ginger jars from my spring mantel because they were so prettty and matched
all the beautiful blue summery cushions I have out.

I'm loving this white washed wooden lantern I got at Bowrings.
The look of rustic wood against shine and sparkle is my favourite thing to play around with.

I find the whole look soft and simple with lots of texture so it's not boring, while
keeping that wonderful beachy feel that I love.

Thanks for dropping by,

Blessings to you from RH!
