Hope every one's week is going well. Mine has been filled with decorating for Christmas inside and out. I thought I'd share a few pics from my family room first. I don't go over the top, inside my house, during Christmas (I save that for outside). Ha! I guess, since my house isn't huge, I feel like it gets cluttered very quickly. So, I keep my decorating to a few key areas of the house. One of them is, of course, the fireplace mantel.
This year, I decided to go very neutral. I used a lot of natural decorative elements on the mantel and throughout the house. My color scheme is green, beige, white, silver, chocolate brown and copper. I used a lot of pine cones, feathers and burlap ribbon this year.
I actually had everything already except for the burlap ribbon!
The kids stockings are from Ballard's (where else).
I bought them several years ago and have really enjoyed them.
Because our tree had to go in the front sitting room area, I had to rearrange the furniture a bit. The wing back chair moved in here for now.
I added some burlap ribbon to a pillow in my basket too.
I have this stuff everywhere! It's on my tree and staircase banisters and some wreaths. I'll show you those in another post.
On the chest, I just added a little sparkle with a glass bowl filled with white and silver ornaments.
Next up I will show you my tree!
