My kids were on a two hour delay from school this morning due to the extremely low temperatures. It read 5 degrees on my car this morning, but with the wind chill it is well below zero. It's these cold days after the holidays that I just want to stay and be cozy at home. Especially right after the holidays and after the holiday break, I long for things to be a bit simpler. Before it's time to start decorating for Valentine's day and Easter, I just wanted a more simple decor around the house.
The family room looks huge now that the Christmas tree has been put away.
Last night I had a fire going to help keep the house feeling warm and cozy.
A simple, uncluttered mantle is what I need right now.
The same holds true in the dining room. Simple. I love the addition of my new Luminara candles. These by far are the most real looking candles...especially in person. Love the new blue color. The dining room will most likely be the first big project of the new year, but more on that in the coming weeks.
Hope you all stay warm!
Don't forget to stop back later for my Winter Blues Wednesday party that opens tonight at 8pm EST.
Hope to see you there!
