How I decorate our home

Dear Friends ~

Today is going to be a bit of an incite on how I decorate our home.


OK here we go ~

Here we see the mantle completed, but how did I get it that way?  Well it was not just put there, one, two, three.  I’ll put a few things that I like in place, and then I step back, and look.  Sometimes I like what I see, but most times I have to walk away then enter the room again (this gives me a fresh look) I move things around until it looks just the way I want it to look.

This can take a couple of minutes, and even when I think its good, I’m still tweaking it for a few day.

In this picture there was no garland.  (The little flower buds in the background)

Just putting the garland, and a string of small lights makes it pop when dusk set in.

Adding height, and a pop of color will also help.

Most of the colors are cream, and a bit of brown & beige (the angels) so adding the red clock and the dark blue bear brings in the colors from the room.

Adding texture to the mantel with the tin candle holder adds dimension ~

Hope this can help you with your mantel, or anything you are trying to create.

Have a fantastic weekend.

Much love,
