Wall Decor Dilemma

I have a dilemma

Before Christmas I had a rectangular
map over the fireplace 
I never was "in love" with it
more just " in like"

So when Christmas came
 and I found
this round Santa

I realized that I would be in love
with something similar
ie round

now what is out there
 that is this large
and round?

Since there is a mirror in the fireplace
would that be too much?

or maybe?

I've thought abt a clock but I'm not so 
sure that it will "go" in a 
Victorian cottage

I've thought abt something metal

but I have 2 metal objects in the room
one above the window 

and the other over a door

would it be too much?

or maybe this?

Is there something
 I'm not thinking abt?
Any suggestions?


  1. These are all great options; although I agree with you about the clock. My favorite was the one that looks like a flower (bottom-second from right). I like the color and design.

    Good luck! I look forward to seeing what you decide. La

  2. Jo, How about foregoing something large between the ceiling and the fireplace and just adding a collection of plates on top of the fireplace molding ledge? I think it would ground it a little better, since the back of the fireplace is so tall. It would also fill the width of the fireplace. I think carrying anything beyond the height of the doorway molding draws the eye upwards a little too much. Just a thought....
    How's Isabella?
