Do you want to create a cozy cabin feel in your home this year for the holiday season? I’m sharing our neutral cozy cabin Christmas mantel decor with pops of red to inspire you to create your own homey and calm mantel decor this holiday.
They say the best laid plans go awry.
But when our plans go awry, we change our perspective and our plan is born anew. This holds true in life (and most certainly with regard 2020) as well as in decorating. Take for example our Christmas decor this year. I started out neutral and was loving it. But then we couldn’t find our stockings in our storage unit. Well, we could find some stockings but not the white fur stockings that I had planned to use this year. I sent my husband back to the sea can where all of our Christmas bins are piled precariously high, and he searched through every one to no avail.
So, we have red plaid stockings.
Not part of the plan, but I’m going with it. Kind of like we’ve all just had to go with it this year; what other choice is there? And, you know what? I added a few red ornaments and some ribbon on the tree and the pops of red are actually working. It’s still neutral, rustic, and natural but with a little extra pop of Christmas colour. I think you’ll love it as much as (it turns out) that I do!
Today I’m joining some blogging friends who are also sharing their beautiful Christmas mantel decor ideas with you. Be sure to visit their posts!
What do you think of the red?
I really wasn’t sure I’d like it, but I do! Plus, now that Erik Santason (our Elf on the shelf) fits in with our holiday decor:)
There are only a few key elements on this mantel…
Peace on Earth mini sign (I found mine at Michael’s last year, but I’ve seen really cute farmhouse signs at Walmart this year as well)
Simple ingredients, that I already owned… but a fresh new take on things.
Nothing new this year, aside from what I made myself…
We are also loving our gas fireplace in the evening these days! And all the twinkle lights! The holiday decor makes this season so much more bearable, I don’t know what we’d do without it…
Want to remember this? Just PIN it!
