Romantic Fireplace by Candlelight

This weekend, my husband and I were listening to music and drinking a glass of wine in our living room.

Romantic Fireplace Mantel for Valentine’s Day

I decided to continue the pink and green theme for Valentine's day in my living room. With the dark walls and vintage bronze and gold frames, the fireplace mantel has a Victorian feel without being too busy or cluttered. Instead, the heart wreathes and topiaries along with the vintage pieces are appealingly romantic but not… Continue reading Romantic Fireplace Mantel for Valentine’s Day
