We’re back in the Dynamic Dining Room today. I wanted to do a little close up of the the mantle area above the fireplace.
I have been wanting to do a wall of molding for a while and I thought that the area above this fireplace was a perfect place to do it. In the beginning I actually had this featured panel full of a few more colors including: color, wood tones, white, and gold.
After thinking through the design a little more I decided that I wanted the feature to be brighter and lighter, so I eliminated the wood tones and coral, left the gold, and added more white. This creates a beautiful texture, but isn’t so imposing.
On top of the beautiful textured panel, I hung a breathtaking, saturated picture of a horse. I think horses are beautiful creatures, but I chose to highlight one in this space because the first time Ms. Brenda saw her husband, he was on a horse. Plus, they are big fans of the giant majestic animals.
The rich, saturated colors of this photo grabbed my attention the moment I saw it. Luckily, Brenda was taken by it as well, so we ordered it from Art.com and got it framed. I love, love it.
I’m thinking I’ll definitely use this stacked moulding look again. It’s so striking and interesting to me. I hope you agree! 😉
Have a lovely weekend friends!
