When it comes to easy interior decorating, I have to say that I LOVE the humble mantle place.
It's always the first place I think of to display a new photo or artwork, and to sit a fresh vase of flowers on. I'm forever changing it around.
These flamingo bookends were a wedding gift and the perfect way to stack our favourite books.
To me some books are artworks in themselves - whether it be because of the cover design, the typography on the spine, or a good old fashion coffee-table book that you love to sit down with and pour over for hours on end.
Also featured here is a vintage Chanel ad (found on eBay) and my new 'Paris' poster which you can purchase in my shop at: www.birdyandme.bigcartel.com

What do you like displaying on your mantle?


My very first large poster print 'PARIS' is now available to purchase! C'est excitant!

At A2, this beauty is double the size of my usual fine art prints, and features a trés jolie femme in a Parisian interior heaven. Printed on quality 200gsm paper, you have the double benefit of either framing your new gal, or taping her to the wall like your Dolly* posters of old! Just maybe not next to JTT. Or Johnny Depp. Or Patrick Swayze**.
(How far back to we dare to tread when it comes to our favourite dreamboats?)

*For those of you residing outside of Australia, and 1992, Dolly is a teen mag for girls.
A rite of passage for we Aussie ladies, you might say.

**You should definitely put it next to a poster of Patrick Swayze.
