The concept of less being more in the world of interior design is becoming more and more popular these days. Because of its increasing popularity, you don’t have to look through tons of magazines or scour through tons of websites for inspiration. Homes with this type of design style often times look so clean and untouched that it can be hard to tell if it’s a home that’s lived in on a daily basis!
One of the reasons we love our family living area is because of the floor to ceiling brick fireplace. And even though the fireplace itself doesn’t get much use because we live in Texas, it’s a architectual piece that anchors the room. This is the fourth home we’ve lived in and the only other home that had a fireplace, it was in the basement which we never used. Last year was the first Christmas in this home and I didn’t take advantage of decorating the hearth like I could have. This year though, I went all out.
