The Quiet of Winter–Part Deux

Before I get to that, I would like to thank Tatertots and Jello for featuring the beautiful side table my husband made me for Christmas.

Yesterday, I shared my winter mantel and how I wanted to keep things simpler post Christmas.

I thought I would share a few more things in our family room…

I have struggled with these shelves since I put them up a few months ago.  I am really enjoying them being quiet and neutral.  I brought down the family pictures from our bedroom.  Even though they are beach pictures, the colors are cool and wintry.

Winter Family Room 042

There are a few of my recent auction finds tucked in here, but I will get to more of that soon.

Winter Family Room 047

These shelves are behind the loveseat, on the way to the bathroom and guestroom.  Someday, I will find the perfect cabinet/table that exists in my head to go under the shelves.

Winter Family Room 063

No winter room would be complete without a cozy chair.  This chair also needs a cozy blanket and pillow, a cup of tea and a book and to be next to the fireplace.  The stool is one I found awhile back at an estate sale.  It is metal, I am not sure what kind, with a wood seat.  Love it.

Here is an overall view of the room.

Of course, this is where I am displaying the beautiful box my daughter gave me for Christmas.  I added a few more doorknobs.

Winter Family Room 102

I added a few books and the key I found in Paris to the coffee table.

Winter Family Room 107

I brought back in my belted pillow and a few other more masculine and wintry fabric pillows.

Winter Family Room 080

Winter Family Room 111

A few more pinecones with doorknobs.

I am working on photographing my auction finds.  Once I do that, I will be pulling together some items for a “reaching 200 followers” giveaway.

I will be sharing this post with some of the parties in my sidebar.

Thanks for stopping by, Laura

Your room looks so cozy. Would love to curl up in that chair with a good book and some hot chocolate on these snowy cold days.

Wow, I love this room! So cozy--and I fee like it's been decorated over time and not just all at once, which is hard to do! Wonderful job, great taste!

So cozy and beautiful! I love the quiet beauty of it. Very nicely decorated without being busy and cluttered.
