With all the Christmas decor put away I have kept a simple winter look in our living room.
Our living room has a mix of browns and whites with accents of black and pops of my favourite blues. Rustic with a farmhouse feel and a bit of sparkle too You can see how it was decorated for this past Christmas in this post.
This little white table is a temporary coffee table. I moved the footed mercury glass bowl filled with pinecones to the shelf and a great smelling candle with a wood berry wreath is on top.
The vintage skis also stayed, along with the burlap Wrangler "LONG LIVE COWBOYS" bag filled with my knitting and crochet projects so they are close at hand.
I kept the ironstone platter and pitcher but replaced the Christmas balls and beads with clear blown glass balls. The large mercury glass balls stayed in the thrifted wire basket. I may still add some pinecones.
I like the mix of the chippy window and the sparkle of the beaded and mirrored snowflake. I loved the pine bundle I had here at Christmas but it was very dry so I chose to take it down.
Although our home is quite energy efficient, cozy throws and quilts are always nice to snuggle with. This faux suede and sherpa throw has a zipper with removable lining and is quite heavy. I like how it brings the dark brown of the leather couch to the lighter white denim slipcovered chair.
The white table next to the window has a wire bowl filled with balls of wool and a turquoise frame (have to have my hint of blue!)
The other little white end table has a snowman candle holder (I simply put his matching Santa away.) Keeping it real with the phone too. The only items we paid full price for in this room are the heritage leather sofa and the $4/each mercury glass balls. The other furnishings and accessories were handmade, yard sale, thrifted, repainted and repurposed or bought on sale or clearance.
After dinner and evening Mass tonight, you can find me on my favourite end of the sofa with the candles lit and my latest stitching in hand. A great way to unwind on a winter's night. We have had some unusually warm weather and rain this weekend so most of our snow is melted. But I'm sure winter is not over yet!
