I know many of you are already thinking of holiday decor and looking for Christmas inspiration. So I gathered these images from Better Homes & Gardens for us to ponder..
In the above photo, there are a bounty of windows to let in natural light, and at the same time visually bring the outdoors in.
A White Christmas:
For all of you who long for a “white” Christmas, the photo above should do the trick. The simple accents of nature up on the mantel add a primitive touch.
The eye is automatically drawn to the mirror over the mantle. A simple yet beautiful wreath made of ornaments is just what the mirror needs for the holidays.
An Old-Fashioned Christmas:
The above photo evokes an old-fashioned Christmas with the look of ornaments gathered over time. It is a traditional Christmas setting.
The above room has holiday decor scattered around the room. Smaller trees don’t take the spotlight away from the other holiday vignettes.
A Cozy Christmas Setting:
This photo is just the opposite. It’s all about the tree.
The furniture is arranged in a more intimate setting suited for cozy nights of drinking hot chocolate.
You get a more vintage vibe here with the repurposed coffee table, the printed burlap pillows, and the old sign in the background.
A Red And White Christmas:
Here is a more modern twist, with a hint of Scandinavian style mixed in. The “trees” on the mantel are very striking and different. The stockings have been given a bit of glam with crafted flowers.
For those of you with a corner fireplace, here are some ideas to make the most of this area.
The small red trees guide the eye to the fire. And more color is picked up in the large wreath above the fire.
A Colorful Christmas:
The above photo is just full of color. A granny afghan is used for the tree skirt.
