If you Have a Hearth

fur & shearling stockings hung by the chimney w/ care

..then you're one lucky son-of-a-gun & Christmas is counting on You to decorate it!

cylindrical glass candle holders w/ birchy beeswax candles, evergreen sprigs & miniature trees, SO purdy!

I put this one for the golden harps & lyres + old clock

a 'minimalist' or 'Scandinavian' mantle decorated w/ a long, asymmetrical Bay leaf, Salal, or Japanese pittosporum aka Japanese mock-orange would be nice too

another Scandinavian-style one w/ a miniature wintery town on it. 
LOVE the retro white-sprayed spruce trees


oversize lanterns, gilded candlesticks, large deer statues

using branches off berry bushes & bowls of apples are also very christmassy

lining the mantel w/ a strand of christmas lights behind a garland is magical

moss, cedar boughs, pink cones, ferns & other foliage + topiaries make for a very lush, nature-inspired mantle


Angel figurines & impressive foliage 'trees' in planters. Placing candles inside the fireplace is also very trendy & pretty.







very Bacchus



Love the silver-sprayed branches & wreath, not to mention the bone-like piece on the hearth.
Not so sure about the flat wooden 'stockings' though...


Paper snowflake garlands are always nice


Train set inspiration ! (on floor)


Loving the fluffy, furry stocking ideas..






This glam room has silver-sprayed Logs in the fireplace !


This one's Hallowe'eny but still inspiring for a b&w theme or for pinning bird ornaments onto your branch decor


Crystal or gemstone garlands w/ mirrors & candles


'Mo fluff


And, last but not least, Berries!
