Basement Arrangements

We recently rearranged a little bit in our basement/den.  I'm trying to decide which looks better on our mantle, for right now :)  I may switch it all up & do something more creative for fall, but for now it will stay as is!  I'm just starting up as a Stylist with Jewel Kade, which is an incredible line of jewelry & I'm in love with.  Needless to say, my time will be a bit consumed because of that, so I may not get around to decorating more for fall!!  Oh, the sacrifice, right?!  ;)  No, not really!

Anyway, which do you think looks better?
I know it's kind of dark down there & hard to see, but you kind of get the gist of it....... This picture was in my husbands grandma's house - so it's an oldie but a goodie!

If you've never heard of or been to Ronda, Spain, you MUST go!  I still think it's been one of my most favorite places to travel - it was simply gorgeous!  This picture doesn't do it justice.  Just trust me when I say it's gorgeous :D  And that you should go.  I was in Spain for a conference & got to see & go inside the Rock of Gibraltar & Ronda in one day.  Oh so fun! 

 So, any votes?!  I'd love to hear what you think :)  Some day I will show more pics of the basement & what it looks like!!

I'm liking the 2nd choice!! Or the 3rd!!lol

I like the 2nd picture w/ more wall space showing. I also might move the picture over to the right a bit so it's off centered, your tall vase will off set the non symmetric look. see what you think

Do the second one! You can also spray paint the hood silver to get rid of the brass!

ok, so i'm going with the second one because of the height and the other accessories, not b/c i love ronda...but i do! i loooved ronda! we went to southern spain last year, and ronda and the white towns were my favorite! we went to gibraltar, too, but it paled in comparison to ronda! no one ever knows about it when i talk about it, lol, so i'm glad to see someone know where the heck ronda is!
