My Great Room and Mantel: One Room Three Ways, Day 1

I am participating in a special link party where we have to show a room decorated in three ways.  Here’s my “first” version.

When my husband and I embarked on a major home renovation several years ago, I decided that our new great room was going to be a thing of beauty.  I had been carrying around a few ripped out pages from a shelter magazine from the early 90s that showed a room in the Hamptons with beautiful Chinoiserie walls, antique furniture – and the owner of the home standing near the walls, dressed in an elegant smoking jacket.  Not that I wanted his life…just his walls!But after the sheetrock went up in our room, I just got this feeling that the place needed to be a lot less formal and perhaps more rustic.
