{this moment} ~ Our New Mantel!

*Just try and picture stone in place of that ugly grey/black hole beneath the new mantel..  That's what I keep trying to do!  lol!  It might be awhile before we are actually able to complete this project.

{this moment} - A Friday ritual. A single photo - no words - capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember. If you're inspired to do the same, visit Soulemama to leave a link to your 'moment' in the comments for all to find and see.

  1. Lovely ambiance! The entire room is lovely and has a contemporary feel to it so not sure if I can picture stonework either. Although today they mix things and moods together...it would be whatever your vision holds. You certainly have made wonderful choices so far........

  6. Thank you all! We feel very blessed!


    Anonymous ~ Really? I don't think of our home as contemporary! Perhaps that is due to the wood ceilings in the living room, which you can't see in the picture. I think it will all depend on the color stone we use. We are looking at a couple called "Chardonnay" and "Caramel" and I think they will blend in nicely with the rest of the room.

    Anne ~ I often feel that our home now feels cold, rather than warm and cozy! The lighting really makes all the difference. :-) I'd like to get a bigger rug someday, to cover a bit more of the tile.

    Aimee ~ It really helps see how everything ties together, doesn't it!

  8. Thank you PJ! We hired our cabinet maker to build it for us, using the same wood and stain as our kitchen cabinets. We showed him a couple pictures of what we had in mind and he did a great job!
