Happy Tuesday, friends!! Today, I’m so excited to be joining some fellow bloggers for a fun blog hop, hosted by Amber, of Follow The Yellow Brick Home. There is a list of links at the end of the post, so you can check out how everyone else is decorating for winter too.

Today, I’m sharing how I have decorated my little living room for winter. I always like to start in my living room, when changing up seasonal decor, because I absolutely love to decorate my mantel! It’s my favorite place to start!!

Speaking of my mantel/faux fireplace, I’m super excited to be featured in the current issue of The Farmhouse Movement magazine. They have featured my faux fireplace this month!

This is one of my favorite DIYs that I’ve done yet! It has given me such a fun space to decorate!

I’m keeping my mantel very simple this winter, just pinecones and candles. Sometimes, less is more!

These muirii pinecone branches are so cute! Love them!

After all the Christmas decor is put away, I always crave simple and uncluttered decor, with natural elements. I hope you enjoyed!

Now, let’s check out what everyone else is sharing today! Simply click on the links below…
