new room

Does my mantle look too crowded to you? It's a crappy picture, I know. I could seriously fuss with the arrangement of this thing for hours and hours. I'm starting to go a bit mad, I think. I don't want it to look too cluttered. I've added a lot and then taken it away. I just don't know when to stop. Is this too much?

Anyway, I'm putting the finishing touches on that room now and I expect to be finished within the next few days. As you can see I haven't touched the fireplace yet and I may not...more on that later. Stay tuned for shots of the finished product.

I love it, and I do not think it looks overcrowded. But then you are talking to someone who lives in a very cramped space and has a LOT of stuff, so "controlled clutter" is pretty much a necessary part of my life for the time being. Also, my mother's mantle is pretty crowded, so yours looks positively bare in comparison (remind me to get a picture if you are interested...there are some nice things on the mantle but she just has too much up there!).
