This year, I want to incorporate natural greens and flowers, as opposed to a lot of the silk florals. For some reason, I have a new obsession with succulents. I just love the array of colors available, as well as the texture that they provide. And the fact that they are low maintenance just seals the deal!
I definitely want to keep the Tuscan vibe going, but I want a more organic feel. I'll continue to use lots of warm colors, inspired by the Tuscan countryside; but, I'd like to add more of the citrus hues, as well.
The first thing I do, after the holidays, is "shop my home". Before I spend a single penny of those gift cards, burning my pockets, I search the house for items to get me started. I love moving things from other rooms and giving them a new home. Today, I'm sharing the mantel and the coffee table decor.
As for the coffee table, I kept it pretty simple. I removed the throw that I scrunched up for the holidays, to let the natural stone of the coffee table show. I arranged two small stacks of my favorite coffee table books, along with some mosaic votive holders, and an urn, dripping with grapes. The 'centerpiece' is nothing more than an iron bowl and some spheres, with artichokes added for color. I like the mosaic votive holders, on the coffee table, all lit up at night. Very warm and cozy!
That's it for today. Tomorrow, I plan to rearrange my entry table and get a new look going. Hopefully, I'll have something to share in the next day or so!
In the meantime, have a great day; and Happy Decorating!!
