Style My Nest: the Fireplace

Tuesday, November 29, 2011

Starting today I hope to do a weekly blog post (the operative word is "hope" since everything is sort of up in the air with the new baby) where I style a little corner of our home.   With a limited number of accessories, there are certain areas where decisions have yet to be made stylistically.  Instead of waiting for the exact right piece though, I figure why not use what I have to do a little accessorizing at least temporarily?  It will give me good practice at styling a space and let me see the various options that might work for a vignette.

Part one is our fireplace.
Eventually I think a starburst mirror is in order and some tall urns among other things. but in the meantime I've created a little winter vignette with some IKEA frames and artwork I created a while back (that didn't sell in our recent garage sale), an oversized rustic wood snowflake that I found at a yard sale, and some of my collection of books and animals.
Next up is our bedroom dresser.


  1. I'm really loving the artwork. Looking forward to the more of these posts!

  2. Awesome! Score 1 for decorating with what you have!!
