Hello Dear Readers!
I hope you are not in the BRRRRR zone of the country. It is cold here and we may get some
snowflakes, but right now, it looks like only freezing rain is in the forecast.
In a couple of weeks the Great Room will undergo a huge change.
So I thought, I need to show you what is in the room now, before the transition begins.
I have been reaching into my stash to bring out some winter ambience
with pillows and accessories. There are only two small items that I found at my . . . .
you guessed it . . . . my fav consignment shop (Always Home).
THE WINTER GREAT ROOM
The magnolia garland was removed, and I set out to create a very simple mantelscape.
A boxwood topiary ball in a footed ironstone bowl,
antique books and a pair of candlesticks are all that adorn the mantel.
After I placed the books on the mantel, I knew that I would get an announcement,
“hey honey . . . the books fell down!” . . . “No, it’s my way of doing the unexpected!”
Citrus is abundant in the winter months, so to add a pop of color in the room
I filled my brown Wedgwood transferware tureen with pretty oranges.
I mentioned that there are two new items here at the Berry Patch House from my fav consignment shop.
I found some antique sterling silver brushes . . . a lint brush and a hat brush.
Rather than tucking them away in the bedroom, I decided to place them in the Great Room
for another “unexpected” look.
The Christmas trees are put away and the chair found it’s way back home.
However we shall see where the raspberry Napolean Bee chair lands when the major
furniture shuffle will be occurring in the next two weeks.
I searched for neutral pillows (all pillows from Pottery Barn)
that would blend well with the blush sofa.
Two of my very favorite pillows (the dancing deer) that I have used in years past
were perfect for the winter decor of the room. The heavy textured solid caramel color
pillows with a a burlap trim are the perfect backdrop for the deer pillows.
I love placing solid color pillows behind the ones with patterns.
I cannot wait to show you how this room will change in the near future.
In the meantime, I will be getting my exercise doing my Furniture Shuffle dance moves!
I wish you all a most beautiful day and hope you all will be safe and warm!
