Well-Edited Mantel

A vintage painting, trophy, mirror and woven basket add texture and eclectic charm to this living room mantelscape.

"To find great deals in a secondhand store or junk shop, you have to rummage and dig," says H&H style editor Michael Penney. "I force myself to go through an area more than once because it's hard to see everything in one pass. It takes time for your eyes to adjust to the clutter and pick out the good stuff."
