Our Fall Mantel began coming together during our summer vacation in Bar Harbor, Maine when we picked up two prints by Andrew Wyeth. I was drawn to the simple, rustic colors and the striking lighting in each. I loved that both had a story on the back, told by Andrew Wyeth.
I found myself returning to these two ideas. The ladder: climbing toward something, toward the light. And the hay ledge: setting aside one season in life to embrace another.
I love the touchstones that these images are for us during this season.
So we put together a mantel around these two themes.
There is something peaceful about our mantel . . .
It allows me to sit and rest . . . as well as inspires me to be mindful of climbing and setting aside what is not for this season.
