Home Sweet Home
I have had many requests lately to design interior arrangements (silk & decor); so I thought I would blog on what I have done. I will be adding posts for the showers, baby rooms, interior design, etc. photos on here soon! Until then, I thought I would blog a little on my home. Particularly my fireplace. I cannot take all the credit for this. I have to thank 2 people for inspiration in our family room. I will point them out and thank them for their wonderful ideas!
Today I took a trip to a step below Heaven...aka...HOBBY LOBBY! I went there with my friend to get some decor for her baby room and I was in a wonderland of design and fun! I had many business supplies to pick up and I also chose a few things for happiness! :)
Just to give you a heads up of my style for our home.....
Casual - Country - Chic - Outdoorsy - Natural - Airy - Cozy - The Schweitzer Homestead!!!!
This is our empty fireplace. Boring, Right?
When we purchased our home, this mantle was an orange colored wood.
My husband stained it to darken its look!
I purchased this mirror below from Home Goods last year. When I asked Sarah from "Simply Sarah Style" for guidance, she recommened a mirror above the fireplace also! You will see a link to her blog under "My Favorites".
Rustic Frames are my favorite! These were on sale at Hobby Lobby. I took the glass out of it and dispayed it on the mantle. The glass I am reusing in a 11x14 frame that I have that broke.
Also, I just set some books below. I love my collection of books. I wanted to set them ALL out, but it looked a little odd. I chose 2 old books of my grandpas and a few of mine!
I popped some greenery on the mantle ( 2 stems of it) and added some of my grandparents mason jars. I will show you next how I pop some color on here!
I moved the bottles in front of the open frame.
Almost Complete.... I am going to show a couple more extras before the end result of the mantle!
These doilies are my grandma's, collected through the years. I placed them on our coffee table and placed photos on them!
I love when I am quickly straightening up to throw them in this basket!
Here are a few quick photos I placed on them!
I just love them! My lamp shades and stands are from Target also.
This Willow Tree was a wedding gift that we received! I am in love with these soft & natural figurines!
