In yesterday's post I told you I wasn't oozing with excitement when I opened
my boxes of decor, which led to a new plan.
The goal ~ a simple, clean look.
First, I removed one shelf, three seemed to work better with the 'less is more' plan.
To create symmetry on the top and bottom shelves I chose matching vessels
stacked on piles of red books, on the center shelf I included the angels
so everyone would know I do love a little holiday decor!
Keeping the color scheme coordinated helps the look feel less busy.
(the books and vessels are old thrift store finds I had)
The greenery from our yard adds some texture.
On the left side of the fireplace I removed another shelf - only five more to deal with!
More red books, cream vases and a gold tray to keep the elements consistent.
Found a spot for my favorite sunburst mirror....
...and made some artwork on my computer.
I have a Santa I'm thinking I'll add in place of the greenery on the top shelf.
(Looking at your photos is a good way to see what needs tweaking.)
If I end up with any spare time (HA!) the back of the bookcase is screaming for a
little pattern....what do you think?
The mantel is in the works, how is your plan coming along?
