It’s the first Monday in January. Isn’t that crazy?? Wasn’t I just sharing Thanksgiving ideas and recipes with you?? Today, since we are in the middle of Winter everywhere in the northern hemisphere, I’ve Got The Monday Blues with Living Room Winter Decor. And I think you will really like it.
Using what I already own, I moved a few things around for a new look in our living room/dining area.
As you walk in to our home and look straight ahead, this is what you will see.
I brought in the large mirror that was in the Office/ TV Room and switched it out with a family frame with pictures of our 7 kids and their families..
I have got to say-I am loving the Winter look in our home.
I thought by removing the Christmas ornaments, it looks more like a Winter feel.
It all started when I was putting together my Winter shelves.
This Winter vignette is on my thrifted buffet which has only been primed. (My Dad got really sick, Thanksgiving was here, kids were visiting and then it was Christmas. Hopefully next week I will get to painting it)
Anyway, I kept my crystallized wreath from Christmas, and used my candlesticks as holders for the prettiest white glitter “pine coneish” ornaments. I just HAD to keep them as part of my Winter look.
The pecan and pine cone garland and the white ceramic birds are rustic enough for Winter, as well. The little white specs are crystals that resemble ice.
I am in L O V E with the new look here on my vintage cupboard. I like using the candy canes to add a little red reminder of Christmas and Valentines Day coming soon.
The balance of the clear glass with the mirrors is perfect. I can still the mirrors without taking away from there beauty.
I used gold paint for the pecans on my Winter Shelves and I thought silver pecans would look really good with some Epsom salts on this cupboard, too.
Now on to the living room.
I have so much fun filling my Grandpa’s croquet box. I kept most of the Christmas look along with the vintage blue bottles. I think it looks great on our thrifted coffee table!!
The wire basket is filled with wood, pine cones and glittered spheres. (No, I don’t have a fire place. I am just pretending that I do.) Weird???
a close up of the croquet box and vintage bottles. By the way, each bottle was a thrift find.
And yet another look at the croquet box. Can you tell I am a little obsessed with it??? I love using book page cones, too. I like filling jars and bottles with them all year long.
So, if you were to enter our home right now, this very day you would know that I’ve Got The Monday Blues with Living Room Winter Decor, right???
PS-I have to give a HUGE shout out to Hubby for the new camera he got me for Christmas! That’s why my pictures are now clear and detailed!! Thanks Hubby!!
Thanks everyone for stopping by today and joining me for I’ve Got The Monday Blues with Living Room Winter Decor. It gets my creative juices going for a whole new post about my thrifted buffet. (Can’t wait to finish that puppy!!)
Make it a blue Monday!
