Turn your fireplace mantel into a wow-worthy focal point with a decorating makeover. A high mantel is no case for despair– this is an opportunity for drama. Don’t shortchange this space with a horizontal landscape painting. Choose an artwork with equal height and drama. For example, look at this Palm Beach living room. I digitally added my peacock decor to add the wow factor. You can get this look in your own home. Start with original peacock art, add lime green pillows and jade Chinese foo dog bookends. This mantelpiece treatment was created using Christa’s South  Seashells. The sofa and slipper chairs are upholstered in a Pierre Frey pique and the floor lamps are by Visual Comfort. The tile floor- which is great for a Florida home, is honed Herpel tile.
