Do you recognize this mantel?  You've seen it in Sherry's beautiful farmhouse in the country here.   She's been in the process of gradually changing from Victorian to a less fussy look with chunky, comfy slipcovered furniture, big baskets and a collection of shells that I'm envious of. I'll show you more when her changes are complete. 
For starters, we removed everything from her mantel and replaced the mini fragile blown glass hurricanes with pure white candles in the candelabras.  She's still debating whitewashing these.  What do you think? 
We stopped short at three pieces of coral to keep her mantel simple and sophisticated.  I love how the colors and textures blend on this mantel and it will inspire Sherry to 'keep calm and carry on' with this theme.
Sherry is also downsizing her collection Christie Repasy giclees.  The pieces in the following picture are available at favorably reduced prices.  Please email me for details at 
We are having the best summer ever in the northeast and hope you are thoroughly enjoying yours! 
Thank you so much for stopping by to check out our monthly mantels!
