Heart Haven Holidays: Christmas Decor

I had so much fun decorating my living room for the holidays this year. My color pallet was silver, gold, and copper and I just love how everything came together!

I put together this vignette using a gold and marble tray from Targent, a succulent, anthropologie candle, and dove figurine also from Target

I love putting out this jingle bell display every year! This year, I added these marble trees from Target.

This is one of my favorite ornaments! I love this jingle bell Noel ornament from Bronners!

Here is an overview of my living room. How have you decorated for the holidays?

Pretty Purple Chairs

One of my favorite things about my home is the pedestal bistro table that I picked up from West Elm a few years back. I have had it paired with the tan parsons chairs from my first house but never really liked the look. I wanted to find a cool gray chair with interesting details to match my couch and other chairs. But when I saw this pair of dark purple chairs at Target, I hoped they would be the perfect pop of color in my fairly neutral room.

As as you can tell from the lilacs in this picture, I’ve had these for a few months now. It’s hard to see the color, but they are a deep eggplant color. It has been fun to play with the purple tones in my paint color and they have worked with my holiday decorations surprisingly well. Have you made any bold color choices that have paid off?

Hello, it’s me…

In an effort to get back on the blogging train as we approach the new year, I wanted to take a few posts to catch you up on some of the changes I’ve been making around my little abode, Morning Joy.

Today I wanted to give a shout out to one of my favorite art pieces. I picked up this “Hello” sign from Target a while back and it greats me every time I walk into the room. I love the distressed wood tones! In this vignette I paired it with a rifle paper print (I cut mine out of last year’s calendar which is no longer sold. Next year’s desk calendar has the same artwork though!), a sweet succulent, and an owl stacked on some cute books (they’re no longer sold but these are similar) from Anthropologie.

White Tulips

I love having fresh flowers in my home. Pretty blooms really bring life into the house and brighten everything up. So, I usually try and pick up a simple arrangement each month.

I love tulips in the springtime and there is something about a bouquet of white tulips that seems to classic, fresh, and chic to me! What is your favorite spring flower?

Rifle Paper Co Calendar Art

As you may have noticed in my fall centerpiece post, I have done a little more work to my living room behind the scenes. I just realized that I hadn’t shared my fun artwork with you! In my old house, I had cut up a small calendar by Rifle Paper Co and famed them in my upstairs hallway. I decided that my current living room was a great place to display them!

I hung six prints around my bistro table and then added four more to the awkward space between my closet door and the entrance to the kitchen. I love how it turned out!

I have mentioned before that I love using a pretty calendar as artwork. You get 12 matching prints for a great price and the collection feels curated and intentional! This year, Rifle Paper Co brought back their popular cities calendar for 2016. So you can still get your hands on these exact prints! It is in the full size, so each month’s artwork fits perfectly in a 8×10 frame! Most of the designs are the same with a couple new additions. I may have picked one up for myself! You can never have too many Rifle Paper calendars, right?!
