One response to “Dear HAP”
Dear HAP ladies,
I just bought a new home and this one has a fireplace. I have never lived anywhere with a fireplace and would love some ideas on how to decorate the mantel and hearth. The mantel is only 4 inches wide, but there is a good 12 inches of space on either side of the fireplace on the hearth. I can take some pictures and upload them next weekend when I am at the house again. I am also in need of some sort of art work to go over the mantel. Have thought about a mirror, but the room is fairly large and has about 5 windows opposite the fire, so that might be a bit much light. Whatever artwork or similar I put there, I want to pull those colors into the room, so I am really game for anything. You all have put up some great ideas and pictures…and I would really love your expertise.
