A traditional living room isn’t complete without a gorgeous fireplace as its focus. And if you’re hankering after a decorative hearth but a full-on fireplace isn’t quite within your budget, try fixing a shelf above the hearth, as pictured, instead. To keep the elegant period theme going, the mantle top here is fixed onto decorative cast-iron wall brackets, creating a unique fire surround effect.
