sfgirlbybay and Fireplace Mantels

I've been a daily reader of for a long time. I love this blog. Wonderful inspiration. And I've been in love with San Francisco for many, many years. I have visited that beautiful city many times and could see myself living there. Love it. My dad loved that city, too. Anyway, today's post on sfgirlbybay's blog is about fireplace mantels. She chose some beautiful examples of mantels from Domino Magazine's "My Deco Files." These four pictures were my favorites.

My house didn't have a fireplace and this past Thanksgiving, I purchased a faux fireplace and mantel. I am so, so happy I did. Not only is the "fire" cozy, but the mantel is a great place to decorate. These examples have given me a few ideas for updating my mantel look.
Take a moment and check out You'll be glad you did.
Have a great day!
