A Monochromatic Mantel...

 I had so much fun creating this festive mantelscape. I love its simplicity, with just the right hint of sparkle and natural elements. I love to play around with my collections so my holiday mantel changes every year.  This one speaks of purity and, well, winter to me.

Now I'd love to hear how you decorate your you group favorite holiday objects en masse, or allow a few larger pieces make a big statement?

  1. love love love this....all is calm...

  2. Just discovered your blog. Very nice mantle. I live for monochromatic simplicity but somehow just don't manage to achieve it! This year, my Canadian home mantle has my painting, my candid photos of the children, a crazy colourful porcelain parrot, some elephants and a string of tropical fairy lights. Hmm, so much for simplicity. (take a peek at it on my blog if you like) But now I'm in my British home and it looks like I'm taken with red berries, seed heads and origami stars made from pages of old books. We'll see. :)


We love to hear from our readers and friends! Thank you for taking the time to talk to us.
