GOING GREEN: Holiday mantels
Leaving out color and keeping things green for the holidays not only offers up a more sophisticated look but is a great way to enjoy your decorations throughout the whole winter season. Incorporating pieces from around your house is a great way to personalize your look as well as save you some money. Here are few of my favorite looks.
Adding a gorgeous swag of greens under an already decorated mantel is a chic understated example of how holiday decor can look great throughout the new year. This one below feels so effortless.
A super minimal look that even a maximalist would love. This crisp black, white and gold mantel pairing with a large grouping of simple white candles and a pop of green looks so rich for the holidays.
Nuts and fruits can look amazing as holiday accents. Here, a simple long tray of walnuts looks rustic and festive paired with a messy mixture of greens or try adding green pears, apples and limes, with larger magnolia type leaves for a touch of old world elegance.
Below are some great ideas of how to fill in your fireplace if your fireplace is a non functioning one or if you live in an apartment where having fires is restricted
1. Fill up your favorite container with logs, branches and lights and place inside for a festive cozy glow.
2. Pile up logs to fill the entire space for a more modern ski lodge type look.
3. Place a large animal figurine or statue type piece inside for a more dressed up look.
Paperwhites can offer a beautiful delicate look for the holidays. If you are craving a new type of winter greenery or you are just wanting a more clean fresh feel this year, try these for a change.
I hope you are feeling inspired! xo, Lauren
