I’m excited to show you a bit more of what our white living room looks like after the Holidays came down. It’s been really nice starting with a clean slate again and trying to only add things that I really really loved and brought freshness and cleanliness to our white living room.
I kept everything minimal in our living room as well, adding touches of greenery and vintage goodness.
I went to a new antique store in town, having exactly in mind what I wanted to find for the mantel.
Low and behold – they actually had it! That rarely happens!
I couldn’t help but visualize old chippy white windows on top of my mantel, and was thrilled they had some for me to choose from. Although, the hubs couldn’t believe I would pay money for old windows. 😉 I know it is a bit of a trend right now, but it is one I really enjoy.
Something about the open simplicity of it is really refreshing to me. I also was hoping to find a few antique crocks, and I just about knocked over a display with my excitement when I spotted them.
I was even more excited when I saw they were less than $20 each. That’s pretty good around these parts for antique crocks.
I still love the warmth and texture from my DIY tassel throw blanket.
And I’ve kept out my DIY grain sack pillows as well.
Our gas fireplace has come in real handy this year, when our furnace died in the middle of the night. Twice.
We’ve all been known to plop right by it’s warmth.
Being the dead of winter, I really wanted to infuse some life into this space – and some plants have really helped with that.
Some are fake (from Hobby Lobby), and some I’ve managed to keep alive for 6 months!
This little corner cubby is a favorite piece of mine. It was treated to a serious clean-out and houses my favorite magazines beautifully.
This open spot above our TV is somewhat of a challenge to work with.
We have thought long and hard about making doors for it, but for now I just plopped a plant there. What do you think? Does it need something more? Something less? Should we make the doors and just hide junk behind? I’d love your thoughts if you have some to spare!
It’s been very nice to take things back to the basics. I like to keep this room as clutter free as possible, so that my loved ones that use it daily, can truly shine.
This living room is their play world, and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
My greatest hope is always that you’ve gained some inspiration for your own home in these images.
Real quick, I thought I would throw in the fireplace “before” image of our living room last spring – so you can see what a difference white can do. I’m quite partial to it. 😉
Thanks again for being here!
Have a wonderful day!
