Living Room - A Glitzy Winter Look

I am so ready for some really cool temps so I can snuggle up with a luxurious fur throw, some hot chocolate and look at icycles hanging from the trees.  Ok, I live in the desert and that is not going to happen, the icycles anyway.  So I am pretending.

Crystal, silver and chocolate are a gorgeous glitzy combination and will have to do for something cool.  I am really looking forward to the Holidays and can't wait for them to start off with Thanksgiving.  I have company coming so I have been changing things up and trying to create a cozy winter feel.

 The brown, white and black in this fox throw looks so warm and inviting.  Perfect to wrap up in on a cool day.

Mixing patterns and fabrics with different textures always gives a room something interesting to look at and helps the eye to travel around the room.

Shiny vignettes help a tabletop to sparkle.

A pretty winter bouquet and pearl orbs look snowy and icy with the crystal candlesticks.

Are you ready for some snow and ice and a great place to snuggle up?

  1. Your living room is beautiful, Marty! Having lived in Phoenix for many years, most winters are too mild for fireplaces and wraps, unfortunately! I do miss that mild weather when January/February roll around, here on the prairie!
    Have a wonderful week.

  2. Looks so pretty Marty. I love the softness you brought to your room with your winter theme. So pretty.
