mantel inspiration

I was browsing a favorite blog the other day and came across this space by Camille Price.  When I saw how she decorated her mantel with red books I knew this is how I wanted my mantel to look for the holidays.  

 here's a photo of Price's mantel; I love the sort of messy, overstuffed but balanced look.  

and her living room

and here's what I did with mine;

and my living room

the rest of my antique books
