It is clear that most people on this site are very creative and some have restored homes. I have finished restoring a 1918 Italian Renaissance home in California, which is my residence. The previous owners tore out the original fireplace :censor: . I have redone the fireplace with a mahogony mantle from 1910 and then custom tile to keep the integrety of the time period. Now I have design block! I need ideas for things to put on top of the mantle and then on the wall above. The wall is a medium cream color, not as light as it looks in the pic. I don't want to do a mirror, and I am particular about any artwork that goes in the home...any ideas??
