Decorating my Mantel for Winter


While putting Christmas decorations away, a couple of things sitting on the counter together caught my eye.  Inspiration hit and I quickly started gathering a few items that didn't scream Christmas but rather just winter to decorate the fireplace mantel.  Homes always look so empty after taking everything down from the holidays, so it is nice to mix a few of these transitional items in with everyday decorations to extend the season a bit.

One secret to decorating simply for any season or holiday is to start a display with items that are NOT seasonal.  The base of my vignette is an old window frame hanging on the wall, a metal lantern, and a vintage metal scoop.  A stack of neutral colored books and an old wood box were used to add different heights to the display.  These are all items I love and really represent my style.

To put the finishing touches on the look, snowy branches and some pine cones were tucked in wherever there was an empty space.

Creating a cozy spot in the living room for relaxing in the winter season | anderson + grant



It's that time of year when the snow is going to fall.  I'd like nothing better than to curl up in front of fireplace with cup of hot chocolate and just watch it come down.  Unfortunately, I still must go out into the winter weather.  But it is so nice to have a relaxing setting to come home to at the end of the day.  This little display of winter makes the home feel warm and cozy, don't you think?
