New Year…New Mantel Decor
Is everyone else as glad as I am to have the Christmas decorations down?!?! After a couple of days, I have FINALLY gotten the Christmas decorations down and packed away! Now, I’m on to putting the house back together again.
Usually after the holidays, I try to jazz things up a bit. I like to move things around. It’s a New Year, so how about a new look!
I began with my mantel decor. My mantel in my living room is a focal point of my home. It’s basically the first thing your eyes go to as you enter the room. It’s also the hardest spot for me to decorate. For some reason, I really struggle with mantel decor.
Right before Christmas, I found these great Threshold white and gold vases at Target. They worked great with my holiday decorations, but they work even better with my living room decor.
This great plate is from Pier 1 Imports. I’ve had it for several years and have always used it on my buffet. I decided to try something new. I really like it on my mantel.
I love the clean fresh look of white pottery and the touch of gold adds such elegance.
This great little artichoke is from Kroger! It was a deal at $4.98.
I love my red berries. They were all over my house for the holidays and I loved them so much, I decided to keep a few out throughout the year. The pop of color against the white vase is great.
I’m enjoying my plate’s new home and I love the white, gold and red.
How do you feel about mantel decor? A great mantel can set the stage for a beautiful space. Great mantel decor can become the focal point of your room. My suggestion is to try different things…move things around…try it here…try it there. Eventually, you’ll look at it and say, “That looks good!” Then you’ll know you got it right!
