Mantel Revamp

I'm perpetually second-guessing most of my home decor decisions and lately I've been concerned about our mantel. Back in January I finished mantel decorating, and being super proud of me, shared my achievements. However, as I was recently scouring my new favorite blog, This Young House, I came across a how-to article on how to avoid being matchy-matchy. I prefer not being matchy-matchy, but it's so much easier than being tastefully non-matchy-matchy that I often succumb. The mantel is a perfect example. I shifted some things around and now that it is assymetrical I'm hoping it's less matchy-matchy.
