Less is more mantel

I'm finding through decorating our house that just a few bold accessories sometimes looks better than  a lot of little tchotchkes (100% had to look up the spelling).

Recently I tried to follow that with our mantel, which has sported many different looks over this past year (see here, here, here, and here):

Now, the mantel has a much more simple and clean look.
Just two big accessories on either end and that is it.

Initially, I was tempted to add more to the mantel, thinking it looked too bare.
But after a little time, it grew on me and now I am really liking the simplicity of it all.

The wicker and glass hurricanes are from Pottery Barn and are filled with mini ferns.

Which do you prefer?
A mantel with a lot on it or just a few accessories?
