I can hardly believe that Christmas is almost here.
It seems like I just finished up all the decking the halls and sprinkling the holiday magic around the house.
And a lot of stylings changed in between when I first decorated and now.
And one of those things is the mantel in the bedroom- and I promised a closer look at the two different ways that this mantel was dressed for Christmas this year.
I started with frosty greens and fresh details.
A couple of gorgeous magnolia and eucalyptus wreaths that I picked up at the flower market inspired me this year in several rooms-
and this mantel style was one that was inspired by that natural goodness.
A few fresh spiral eucalyptus with gold floral touches and candles
with green velvet stockings.
Add a few vintage candlesticks and it was done.
And a completely different look for this same mantel – is an all neutral look.
I was inspired by the white Christmas tree that arrived for photography- and restyled the mantel accordingly.
Chunky knit stockings
vintage inspired white wreath that looked perfect with the same Merry Christmas letters as the natural mantel
But that also worked beautifully with those barely blushing mercury glass ornaments as well.
And lots of vintage and vintage inspired candlesticks for a warm glow finished it perfectly.
So there you have the same mantel with two very different looks. It shows how easy it is to change the style and overall feeling of something with just a few swaps and in just a few minutes.
Which look do you prefer?
See you tomorrow for an outdoor Christmas tour.
Happy Thursday everyone!
