Rustic Nautical Inspired Mantle - The Kim Six Fix

Rustic Nautical Inspired Mantle

Pin It

My 80s tract home has a very different style then my parents' lake house.  Since I frequently share my seasonal mantle designs (which always have a similar look), I thought I would mix it up a bit and share my mom's nautical themed mantle. 

I think it is beautiful in its simplicity and monochromatic color scheme.   Even though I probably couldn't pull off this design aesthetic in my house, I really love it.

The fireplace itself is floor-to-ceiling river rock with a simple cape-cod style mantle.

Because the fireplace itself is so dramatic, the accessories she used are all very neutral, and stay within a theme.   The featured piece is a simple oil painting of sailboats with a rough driftwood frame:


On one end she has a thrift shop model tall ship:

And on the other, a hurricane vase with a candle and shells, along with clear glass sphere that remind me of bubbles:

I love how it all goes together, and is so clean and simple.  A perfect mantle for a house on the water.

Sharing at Homestories A to Z, Uncommon Slice of Suburbia and some of these parties.




And since I am obsessed with mantles, here are a few examples of my own, not nearly as rustic as this one (Click on the photos for the original posts) :
