When I first delved into the world of interiors – professionally – I struggled with what to call myself. I hesitated to call myself a designer as I’m not formally trained and decorator didn’t quite feel right. It’s only been in the last few months that I’ve come up a title – Stylist. I style spaces. From finishes to furnishing to accessories, I style. I’m an interior stylist.
The cooler temps here in Calgary this week have made me turn the heat back on and think about lighting a fire! A little part of me weeps as I write this, I really thought we had beaten the odds this year with a spring that was gorgeous and on time! But alas, this is Calgary and we know better. So in honor of these cooler days, I thought I would share some of my favorite ways to style a mantle.
Mantles get a lot of attention during the winter months and holidays, but if you’re lucky enough to have a mantle in your space, they are a great place to add interest and decor all year around.
