Mom's un-styled mantle

In the midst of all the perfectly styled holiday decorations floating around the web this time of year, sometimes I crave something a little more real. Don't get me wrong, I love all the pretty and perfect, but there are times when comfortable and homey are where it's at. Especially this time of year.  With that being said here is a little peek of my Moms mantel.  It's not styled for these photos, nothing was moved, nothing was tweaked.  It's simply how it looks today. 

Doesn't Moms place always feel like home?

  1. it looks lovely and homey for sure. agree that décor can seem a little too perfect lately and then it makes me stress about making my stuff look pinterest perfect too.

  2. Nothing feels more Christmassy, cosy and festive than mum's place! For that reason I can't to be home for Christmas this weekend and see how my mum decorated her place. Perhaps it won't be Pinterest-perfect, but I'm sure she has given her heart to make the house look as festive as possible.

  3. awww!! it's so pretty! I agree....sometimes with all these blogs and such styled and planned photos sometimes it just takes the naturalness out of the equation. I love a pretty scene unedited. And yes, my parent's home is always the coziest.

  7. I love decorations that are personal, I want my home to feel like it displays my life and personality not just cute ideas I found on Pinterest.
