Fireplace Freshening

Our fireplace needed some freshening.
Took everything down & started anew:
Wanted more graphics, more blank and white, silver (my winter thoughts) – just gathered different items from around the house.
Here’s the result:
home decor 024
home decor 025
home decor 022
home decor 026 home decor 027 home decor 028 home decor 029 home decor 030
home decor 031Here is the before – I loved it this fall – very cozy & warm (with my little old NEST banner I made out of coffee filters).
But for winter – I wanted a lighter, more vivid feel:
I’m already looking forward to putting together my spring version soon – I’m, in fact, in denial that winter has it’s hold here for another 2 1/2 full months!
{melt snow – melt! - sigh}
