As I said in my last post winters are long here in Michigan and I try to embrace the clean colors of whites and creams when decorating the house. Our home lends itself to fall colors so winter could be drab if a little punch of clean clear color were not added for the winter season.
Out every window in our home we have beautiful views of fresh snows. Unfortunately with the wind chills being well below zero the shots I've been taking have been from the comfort of inside.
I left the faux snow on the top of this candle holder that had been sprayed for the holidays. Along with the twigs and greens of a leftover Christmas plant this setting gives our living room a little winter boost.
In our entry a tall two toned piece holds my display of white soup tureens. This is a basic grouping that stays up all year round and acts as a staging background for add-ins depending on the season. For this time of year I just leave the white pieces in place.
I do change out some of the artwork in the house for different seasons and this was what I had over the sofa for the holidays. Since its still applicable for January and February I'll leave it in place until its time for something new for spring. The white pillow was also left in place as it has a pretty snowflake pattern on it, this piece is special to me as it was from Dawn at Creative Cain Cabin. Along with artwork I also change out some of the pillows around the house during the winter season.
On the mantel I still have a long garland of greens and pine cones along with a couple of small winter pictures tucked in the greens.
Even our dog Izzy fits well into our winter decor.
