Hi all! If you’ve been reading along for awhile, you know we don’t have a fireplace or a mantle in our house, but the console table in our entryway has functioned as a little display area over the years. Right now, we’re showcasing some lime green in honor of Spring! I’ve styled our table two ways, I’m curious if you prefer one over the other.
Our first vignette features family photos and things in our home which have a way of playing musical decor (like the Target runner and jar from Home Goods, which were previously on our breakfast table).
I’ve got some faux blossoming branches in the jar next to my favorite, inexpensive green apples ($1 each) from WalMart. We typically have fresh fruit on hand in the kitchen which always adds a nice splash of color to the room, but here in the entry, I like the pop of color the faux apples add.
My favorite recent find is the ampersand I got at Target. It’s hollow and adds a cute bit of character. I’m sure at a later date it will look great in one of our bookcases or in my office.
Then, because I’m actually not crazy about all the dark wood (mirror and console), because I think it looks and feels too heavy, I traded out the framed photos for a propped up Made By Girl “LOVE” print, which obscures the chunky wood mirror some.
I like the simplicity of the second table, but the family photos are a nice personal touch to come home to. What do you think?
The area is constantly in flux, so there’s no right or wrong answer:)
You might remember last Spring, we had a simple arrangement of huge sunflowers in our entryway.
And last summer, our mantel was full of sand and shells.
Our Nativity Scene stayed here at Christmas.
Our you styling your mantle for Spring?
