Hello Dear Readers!
I am getting near the finish line
toward the end of the Christmas decorating
(however, is there really an end?).
Today, I thought that I would take you
into the room where we spend the most time in….
the Great Room. It is not really a large area
as it is divided by a small sitting area to its
left…but I do love the coziness of it.
The Great Room for Christmas.
This year my goal was to keep the mantel simple.
Well, as simple as I get.
I was able to place the garland directly
on the top of the mantel as I had the builder
make a 10 inch wide mantel vs. the 7 inch I
had in our former home.
I wanted the versatility of placing larger items
on the mantel. More is more…right?!
I kept the color scheme fairly neutral
with small pops of color here and there.
My very large silver tray holds pretties
of the season.
Cannot forget the blue and white!
This is the table that is beside my chair.
It has my favorite photo and other things
that make me smile.
You can see how the Great Room is really the
I can sit in my chair and see into the foyer
and through the large doors. It certainly does
lends to a feeling of spaciousness.
My view into the foyer of a twinkling tree
and a beautiful Jingle Bell poinsettia.
