Winter in the Living Room

Winter Living Room

Christmas is over and our living room is decorated for January with a blue and white theme.  Come on in and look around!

Winter Living Room


An easy snowflake wreath (tutorial coming soon), pinecones, candles, and blue ribbon adorn the mantel.  An antique box on the hearth holds more pinecones.  A fire in this room on a cold night will feel good!  Swarovski snowflake ornaments from Christmas stay out until March.  The crystals make beautiful patterns on the the walls when the light is right.

My grandmother’s chest displays a blue vignette.  The lamp was my dad’s college lamp and the cloche holds two handmade cards (the snowman one on the left made my my cousin Mindy and the house on the right painted by my great-aunt Catharine).  The blue bowl is either Fenton or Blenko.  It belonged to my grandmother.

Thanks for visiting!  Now all I need is some snow so I can stay home on a weekday and enjoy sitting in this winter themed room.

  1. I agree—we need some snow! I haven’t done any winter decorating yet other than a wreath on the door. I still need to sort through all the toys and stuff. :s Your mantel looks great!

  2. i’m so glad to see you’ve kept some pinecones out. i have mine, as well as some snowflake ornament hung from bottles…feels like everyone is forgetting winter is still here!

  3. I’m always glad when you show the seasonal decor on the chest because it’s another opportunity to admire those beautiful oval pictures.

  4. Now if it only felt like winter! it was a ridiculous 60 degrees in Northern Jersey today!!!!

    I love your winter theme – I do something similar with snowmen and snow flakes. Feels kind of silly with the warm temps these days, but I can dream, can’t I?

    thanks for sharing!
