Pinterest is starting to give me a serious design identity crisis. I’ve been looking into mantels to add a some of that real grown-up feel to my place, you know, because I’m adulting now. It’s just a sea of white. Yes, I get it – white is super chic, white is a blank slate, blah, blah, blah.. White is boring. I needed something more. I will not conform to you, Apartment Therapy!
It took a good bit of exasperated searching and mainlining of caffeine, but I finally came across a picture of an earthy colored dark mantel. I mean an earth tone, marble mantel.
These pictures took me back to Cruel Intentions where they show the first shot of Kathryn’s bedroom. I remember seeing it and gasping out loud to no one in particular. It was so chic, I don’t feel cool enough for it. That room has always been my design Everest.
Having left NYC two months ago, I now have the financial ability to buy things and make it happen. I overheard some talk of mantels going on sale today at OGT. Nothing too concrete as far as I’d gathered, so I took the initiative (mostly because mantels are my one and only mission at the moment) and asked if it was possible to get some dark preferably brown colored mantels at the forefront of said sale. BAM!
HALF. OFF. MANTELS.
I’m not exactly sure how I made it happen, but I don’t really care. I’m running down in a bit to check out what they’ve got and making it happen before I leave work today. I may go back down tomorrow and take you all with me on Facebook Live. I’ve found two on the site that I really dig – let me know your thoughts.
Ugh, these are so perfect.
You need to check this sale out. If you’re in Pennsylvania (or anywhere close, honestly), I highly suggest taking the drive out to Scranton. There’s so much more in the warehouses than is posted online. Like waaaay more. Like Overwhelmed Intern too much.
