My classic red and white mantel is bringing the Christmas spirit! Mix in liberal amounts of greenery and pops of black, and you have yourself a beautiful, cozy, classic, traditional, and welcoming Christmas scheme. I thought about sticking with the less traditional blues and greens that we decorate with most of the year; but I couldn’t help but gravitate back towards red and white.
I’m really excited about wrapping up some last details and sharing the rest of our Christmas spaces with you over the next week; but for today I’ll start with what has become the feature of our living room.
I couldn’t be more thankful that we took the plunge and had the fireplace and mantel built land installed last November. I share all kinds of decorating, organizing, DIY, and craft projects as well as the odd recipe and lifestyle related post.
So come on back over the next few weeks to check out the rest of our home decorated for Christmas. I kept it quite simple with some classic red, white, and black plaid stockings along with a dry boxwood garland. I think it can transition every season; and suits the lake front location of our home.
All the wet, cold, miserable weather we have in November and (often) December makes the coziness of the fireplace even that much more welcome. As I mentioned, today I’ve joined forces with 17 other talented bloggers to share a little view into our Christmas decor for the season through our Christmas mantel or vignette.
