Home's Where The Hearth Is

The holiday fast approaches, closing out an unusual year. We've stayed close to our hearths and found solace in the simple pleasures of home. Honor that spirit and gather warmth fireside with a spruced up mantel.

These bright and simple mantel pieces really stand out. Greens, whites, and neutrals give a sense of peace and calm. For added glamour mix glass and metal ornamentals into your display. Eucalyptus leaves add variation of green hues and come in interesting ranges of leaf shapes. Another great greenery that will add depth of color are magnolia leaves.

Though less family and friends may cross our thresholds this Holiday Season, greet those that do with a festive entry full of cheer. Get inspired by nature. Forage for greenery and winter berries to create wreaths, garlands, and decorations for the mantel. Add fun accents to your creations with ornaments, dried fruit, and twinkling lights.

Let the joy of the holidays fill you with light and hope as you reflect on all you find dear to your heart.
