A Few More Winter IdeasAfter all the glorious Christmas decorations I find it refreshing to have very simple decor around the house now. It helps to settle the soul after the hecticness of the holidays and I think it also helps to signal the beginning of a new year. A fresh pallet so to speak. Hope and anticipation for wonderful thing to come in this new year.
I wanted to show the before and after of this bowl. At first I had it sitting empty on the shelf and it was ok. Then I thought it would look great with some silver balls in it to help with the winter feel. Luckily when I ran out to Hobby Lobby they had just three boxes of Christmas balls left on clearance for 90% off. Lucky me
If you notice this bowl has a gold rim. At first I didn’t like even just the hint of gold with the silver balls, so I changed it out for just a pure crystal bowl and didn’t like it as well and here is why. I have some gold, and warmer tones in the clock and just that little hint of gold in the glass bowl helps tie the all of the shelves together. So, you don’t need to be matchy, matchy, but do try and find ways to tie your spaces together.
