Hello again friends. I'm excited to share Christmas in our master bedroom, which I actually styled and shot weeks ago and finally had the time to talk about today. Keep reading because there is a party going on with lots to see!
It started with this tree that was rescued from one of our client's who was tossing it into the trash! It was a tosser because the prelit lights did not work and it had yellowed. I'm not above rescues and the finished product looks pretty gorgeous. Don't you think?
I explained more about the process HERE.
On the bedroom mantel I added some faux white garland. The vintage mirror is one that I've had for a few years just laying around, and somehow it popped into my head to hang it over the mantel flanked by a pair of antique French sconces.
The sconces were a very generous gift from a friend and I haven't yet wired them to U.S. standards, but I will. They have delicate cloth pull chains to turn them on and I hung a vintage pinecone ornament from each. Just one of those little extra touches.
I love vintage ornaments and have a pretty large collection. In the bedroom I used faded metallics in silver and gold on the mantel, along with some pinecones that I painted white.
And on the tree I mixed in some of my favorites that are vintage blush pink. There are many reproduction ornaments available these days but I don't think that they can compare to the patina that you find with vintage.
Winter wonderland in Miami, where it's a balmy tropical 90 degrees and we have to fake it until we make it winter-wise.
A few subtle touches of pink, and I went a little crazy buying inexpensive pillows (from H&M Home) to change things out this year.
I'll let you in on a little quirky secret and why there are presents on the bed. No, they are not staged (well maybe just a little:~}. I actually have done my present wrapping in the master bedroom ever since the kiddos were little, so that I could close the door and then hide them underneath the bed! It's a back saver for me too, since the bed is a high one. Works for me and our homes are meant to be lived in and breathed in.
And a small vase of flowers next to my side of the bed.
Today I'm super excited to be partying with some of the sweetest blog ladies that I know, and I hope that you take a few minutes to see what they have to share! I'll be back with more all week long too:~}}
