Two white pillar candles in matching hurricane glasses and other well-chosen accessories help dress up the mantel in this transitional living room from designer Elizabeth P. Clarke. Tips from the designer: The fireplace is one of the most striking features in a room and should be a focal point. The mantel is a great place to accessorize. Small groupings of artwork can be added above the mantel for some punch, and smaller accessories on the mantel help tie in the fireplace with the art. Lighting and candles are another fabulous way to create visual focal points.
To add textural appeal and color to clear glass hurricanes, update them with tree cuttings, ribbon and spray adhesive. To do this, gather several branches together, thinning them out until nearly flat. Next, cut the ends of the branches to size so they’re all relatively even in height and width. Add spray adhesive to the exterior of the glass hurricane, then position each branch in place. Once the adhesive takes hold, add an extra layer of visual interest on top of the tree cuttings with ribbon.

This summer-inspired floral centerpiece sits nicely against crisp white linens and a neutral backdrop. Depending on the height of the flower stalks, fill a tall, narrow hurricane glass halfway with water and add a few small oranges for a burst of color.
