Winter Mantel Decor: Neutral, Clean & Calm | White Cottage Home & Living
Isn't it always kind of a let down after you take your Christmas decorations down? Everything looks bare for the moment and sad after the cheery Christmas colors and scheme. Then I settle into the calm and I enjoy the clean look for the winter months. I decided to go with what I was feeling and that was a more neutral look which includes winter whites, burlap, rustic wood and mercury glass. Today I am going to show you my winter mantel. I decided to once again keep the white mismatched mirrors. I love using them as a backdrop. The wall the fireplace is on is a two-story room, so the mirrors help to add height to the room. Layering them also adds texture to the displays. I did, however, remove the black lanterns and added instead a vintage birdcage. I'm sure the lanterns will be back, but for now, I swapped out the candlesticks on my dining room table with the lanterns for a different look for both rooms.
