It’s been such a fun challenge to incorporate blue into my Christmas decor this year. I made some rustic yet glitzy pinecones and a subtle blue wreath that matches my living room. For the mantel, I wanted to continue my subtle blue touches.
I like incorporating the blue since it’s a color I already have throughout my living room, but I didn’t want it to overwhelm the decor. So I grounded one side with a neutral, rustic homemade sign, accented by my sheet music Christmas trees and just a few of my glitter blue pinecones.
On the other side, I used a combination of mercury glass, my book page ornaments, and my Hobby Lobby angel which already boasted some perfect blue accents.
I love the juxtaposition of the sparkly glitter and vintage sheet music.
As well as the shiny mercury glass and old book pages.
The contrast of glitzy and rustic is my favorite.
Now I do have one confession: I don’t have blue stockings. They’re actually red, but I just couldn’t resist toying in Photoshop… and I think the official ruling is that blue stockings are a gorgeous and classy option!
