I really do like the red and white colour scheme that I put into my craft room so rather than go ahead with the day to day decor I decided to gussy it up for Christmas and see if after a few weeks whether or not the red and white is still doing it for me.
So here is the closest I will ever get to a mantle and mantle décor, I swapped out the pink ribbom that was around the snowmens necks and added red and white striped.
And to give you an idea as to how it is coming along here's a picture of the back wall, beware ugly photo have not been able to get a good shot of this area from the (no jokes) 150 shots we've (yes "we've" since I was about to throw the camera, Julian decided to give it a try) taken, ARGGGH!
Also pay close attention to the declining candy canes in the boots, this will tell you how long we spent trying to get a good shot, there are now NONE.
So you can see the white with the red and even though this is Christmassy I am loving the fresh white walls, the bead board and the boldness of the red so I think red and white will be the colour scheme just what ideas to incorporate and which ones to scrap in the coming year.
Green was the colour of 2013, or so I read somewhere, so as usual I am way off trend, do you follow colour trends or just go with what you love? Personally I feel like a sheep when I follow trends, unless I truly do love it.
Thanks for reading,
