I've kept the same general look for the last couple of years, but this year I'm thinking of going in a different direction with our holiday decor. First, since I wasn't blogging last year, here's a look at Christmas' past:
Maroon and silver has generally been my holiday theme. I usually change out the pillows in the living room to maroon silk, and add lots of maroon touches with candles and ornaments.
I fill the silver dish that is usually on the coffee table with some of my vintage ornaments mixed in with silver, purple, blue and green newer ornaments.
The tree features lots of jewel-colored ornaments in maroon, blues and greens.
I usually have a helper or two as I decorate ...

Last year I kept the mantle really simple, just adding in a wreath, some maroon candles and berries with some of my vintage white pottery.
This year I think I want to go with a mainly white and silver theme. Here are a couple of inspiration photos from BHG.com that caught my eye:
They are featuring mantle decor from some well-known bloggers, so you may want to check it out if you haven't already. Lots of great ideas!
I love the blues and greens on our tree, and I'll keep that look. But I'll add more silver this year to tie it into the mantle and vignettes I'm planning.
So I'm just about ready to get started ... how about you? Have you started your holiday decorating yet?
