I was telling a friend the other day that I really needed to make our living room a little more “manly”. Our home has become a place with a lot of sparkle and flowers and fluff which I think makes sense considering there are four girls living here. However, my original vision for our home decor was to bring a lot of vintage industrial elements in, so I don’t want to lose sight of that! I recently got to go on a shopping spree to Urban Barn (it was part of my prize package for winning this contest), and one of my favourite purchases is a massive vintage-looking clock. I think it makes the most gorgeous vintage industrial centerpiece for our mantel.
What do you think? I think it works so well here! Our fireplace is quite large, so the large scale of the clock seems right at home.
I’ve decided to keep our Fall mantel decor quite simple this year with the clock being the main element.
A little bit of greenery via a moss ball and some faux grass adds natural elements, and I’m keeping my black lanterns right where they always are.
On my Ikea candle sticks, I’ve perched these DIY fabric pumpkins for a little whimsy.
It’s simple and rustic, and we love it.
Here’s a little peek at some of the changes I’ve made so far in our living room and how the mantel looks in the space.
