I’ve been finished decorating our home for Christmas for a couple of weeks now, and as an on~line shop owner this is the season for squeezing everything in to a condensed time slot! I have many photos to share with you today, welcome on in…
It all started with this wreath that is hanging over the living room mantel. I generally start styling a room around one large piece that inspires me, and this vintage wreath that I’ve had for many years was my muse in color and vintage vibe.
It’s filled with the original picks, frosted pinecones, vintage bells and baubles and is actually some sort of older plastic. In past years I’ve hung it (and it’s coordinating “twin”) on our double front doors.
A pull back shot of the living room shows that I’ve gone forward with the aqua tones from the wreath with some more subtle touches.
Twinkle lights and faux garland mixed with real greens, vintage aqua ball jars, French books and baubles.
A vintage tulle tutu wreath from a sweet blogging friend who featured it on her blog a year or two ago.
Mixing textures and lots of vintage with a bit of mercury glitz. Do you see a famous blue box in one of the stockings? It’s empty, and the treasured Tiffany blue is too special to trash.
The tree is a fresh frasier fir, which is what we can get here in South Florida. I have used only white twinkle lights and no ornaments to keep it simple.
Touches of blue and fresh flowers.
Gifts are wrapped in vintage wallpapers and ribbons are fashioned from torn vintage fabrics. This gift has simple blue and white French ticking and frosted pinecones.
Fresh greenery scraps are used for embellishing the gifts.
I love simple, but need my fix of glitz.
I’m sharing only the living room and will share more over the next couple of weeks and participating in some blog parties.
