Cozy Fall Mantel

Happy Thursday friends! It’s a big day around here. My third baby turns 16 and takes his test to get his license this morning. Praying he passes!! He’s a pretty good driver, so I really have no doubt. I have mixed feelings about all of this. I’m happy to be doing less toting around of him AND his brother (they have very similar schedules), but I’m terrified when I think about him being out their on his own among all the other crazy drivers.  😯 But, anywho!! That’s what it’s all about mamas. They grow up and do new things and we learn to pray harder and harder with every passing year.
Wow, I didn’t mean to chat for that long, but there ya go! Today I’m sharing a few more shots of our fall mantel, and some more details. I’ve really started to settle into what I like design wise as of late. It’s somewhat eclectic, but not. Ha! Some might say modern farmhouse, others might say cozy minimalist. Maybe a combo of those. I’m definitely in a less is more phase, and I do like some history thrown in, but I also like a little bit of modern thrown in as well. Whatever you want to call it, it makes sense to me and I like it, and that’s all that matters!! So, for what it is, here is my version of a cozy fall mantel.

Neutral Winter Mantel

I don’t often decorate for winter. Typically our home goes into basic décor mode after Christmas and stays that way until fall. Ha! Great home décor blogger huh? This year I took down Christmas and my mantel sat blank for a week.
It was nice to let the house breath for a while. To feel the quiet in the space after all the noisy Christmas décor. (don’t get me wrong, I love it)
After Christmas sometimes the house sits undecorated for a time.
