NOT JUST ART AND MIR­RORS

South Waikato News - - Property -

Can­dles, vases with fresh or dried flow­ers and branches, ver­ti­cal or hor­i­zon­tal stacks of books and shadow boxes hold­ing a favourite item will all make for an in­ter­est­ing and eye-catch­ing man­tel.

‘‘If you have more of a col­lec­tor’s feel in your home then spe­cial travel sou­venirs, books, and art­works may work atop your man­tel­piece bet­ter,’’ says Tuck.

‘‘I would sug­gest be­ing a bit ruth­less here how­ever. Pick sou­venirs to dis­play based off the look of them rather than the mem­o­ries they hold for you. Don’t throw other sou­venirs away, but cu­rate the ones that work with the colour scheme of your room.’’
