Hello everyone! My name is Becky and I'm a contributor at Houzz, a home design site focused on helping design professionals and homeowners manage the remodeling and decorating process. Thanks so much to Emily for having me!
Mantels are a topic close to my heart; even in a home without a working fireplace, a mantel is on my must-have list. I love to look to blogs like 52 Mantels, design books, magazines and of course our database on Houzz for "mantelscape" inspiration. One of my favorite design books that came out this last year is Patina Style, written by husband and wife team Brooke and Steven Giannetti, who coined this term to describe the look of cleverly mixed weathered and vintage objects they favor. Thus, I thought I'd combine my love of mantel arrangements and Patina Style for this post. I've collected a few images that bring big patina style to mantels, combining unique objects in pleasing compositions.
traditional living room. Even the sticks in the urn pick up on the hues of the objects. Tarnished metal and distressed covers add to the appeal.
