{ Fresh Vintage Style Winter Fireplace Decor }

Whoa this week has flown by...Friday already?! I'm not ready for the weekend because it's going to be busy & I'm still dealing with this dizziness from Thanksgiving...eek! I tried to get all my decor upstairs in order including our little cottage fireplace..I've been looking for a new aka old  one for a little bit now, but just haven't found what I have in mind, so in the meantime I decorated this one!! I love the way in came out, fresh cozy & mixed with lots of vintage antique's we collected. I mean after all your space you call home should show some of both of your personalities whether that's in decor, collections, pictures etc.. Well, we both love vintage  pieces that have stories, charm & that cozy look! I filled this fireplace with lots of items we've collected over the years especially ones that scream winter-ish...if that makes sense ha. I'm sorry sometimes I have a hard time explaining my decor process! I mean things that are heavier, darker or more worn  all give a cozier vibe. Anyways, before I keep babbling & trying to explain to you all, just come see for yourselves below..


It started with me just setting this huge vintage wood toolbox  up here while I was cleaning up Christmas decor..Well I loved the rich worn wood against the white mantel box. I then added the tall candle sticks & of course some wintery blue & cream ticking stripe ribbon..That was about it other than the little vintage antiques like the clock, pipes & vintage books! The farmhouse pillows are from Ikea as well as the large topiaries!


The mix of everything I crave around these months..Simple, fresh, charming & above all cozy.. I forgot to mention above that the white chippy stool with the pillows was a thrifty homemade find.


The black & copper handled buckets the topiary plants are in are from Target years ago..I think I picked them up for like $5 a piece!



The large candlesticks with the yummy vanilla candles add that cozy look especially when we light them at night if we're upstairs enjoying this space! We are real people so the TV isn't covered & yes, the cable box is there! I admit A LOT of our home is staged, but this is an area that isn't. To me it just looks weird without a normal accessory most people use at least a few times a week.. I'm so sorry if it bug you :(.


* The greenery is all faux in the box.



What do you think of this wintery mix of goodies on the fireplace?! I love that it still feels cozy after all the Christmas is put away, because I miss the lights to be honest!  It does help to add things that you love whether you style is modern, farmhouse etc.. Decorate with what you LOVE & skip what's trendy. I remember when cottage/ farmhouse wasn't popular & people would say "Oh my gosh, you like country decor"..You do what's right for you! <3 p="">

Happy Friday!
