I’m one of those weird people who actually enjoys winter.
I love the snow, and the cold, and the bundling up, and the quiet.
That quiet calm after a fresh snow is my favorite.
You know the calm I’m talking about, right?
That perfect calm when you wake up the morning after it’s snowed all night, and step outside to a fresh blanket of white snow covering everything, and all around it’s perfect and still and quiet.
It’s just so peaceful.
That’s kind of how I wanted things to feel inside this winter too – calm and still and quiet.
So it’s back to neutral pillows on the sofa. This time in a palette of white, cream, and beige.
Subtle accents, like a wood bowl filled with pinecones and birch bark…
A simple stack of books topped by a wood bowl filled with a little green, paired with a favorite smelling candle, for the coffee table…
Cozy neutral accents for the chairs…
I shared a look at the mantel earlier this week – vintage frames, cotton stems, and candlelight…
And an easy display made up of simple branches, iron candlesticks, and an antler sits atop the apothecary cabinet.
Calm and still and quiet?
Check. Check. And Check.
And a good dose of cozy to boot.
As I’m typing this, the wind is howling outside, and the shutters are shaking, and I could not be happier all snuggled in and cozy under that pom pom throw. Happy Winter friends!
