Using an old fireplace mantle is a great way to display art, photos, etc. You will see many people use molding shelves in their homes but a mantle adds more character and acheives the same goal.
Adding pops of color on signature pieces helps add style to a home. It is a great way to use color in your home and tie a room together. Below is a great antique buffet in distressed green that I have in the entry way
Using open frames is another great way to decorate your home. They come in many sizes and styles. Below you will see a large frame that I have used as a headboard. This is an inexpensive way to frame a bed. You will also see 2 open frames hung in my guest bathroom. So many homes come with the large mirrors and they seem very generic. By hanging 2 open frames over the original mirror it makes it look more charming and it is much cheaper than buying new mirrors.
