Create a shelf still life by artfully mingling books, small-scale framed art, and decorative objects like these vintage candle holders and ceramic pieces. Pro tip: Keep heavier items on lower shelves for visual balance.
Metallic colors like copper and gold add warmth and character to your tabletop. (We love the small touches of copper hardware, too.)

Decorate for each season with nature's finest. In winter we love mixing eucalyptus and olive branches for a mantel garland. (But anything from your backyard or local florist will do just was well.) Here, we strung pinecones on twine and made a wreath of shed dear antlers.
Consider ceramics for more than just the dining room table. These terra cotta clay lamp bases add warmth and rustic style to any room.
