Interior design news: Chocolate for Christmas; architectural tour; and mantel ideas

Interior design news:

HOLIDAY HUES: Over at 6DW (Six Different Ways), the idea of changing up color schemes for Christmas decorations. A couple of years ago, I introduced some chocolate brown to my gold decor: beautiful. What will your color scheme be?

TAKE A TOUR: This particular Pinterest board is like taking a virtual trip around the world to look at architecture. Thanks for the eye candy, Jonathan Boivin.

MAKE THE MANTEL: Make your mantel the centerpiece of the room this holiday season with ideas from Ciao Interiors:

"During this time of year, the mantel can serve as the centerpiece for your living room. It frames the hearth and is an ideal place to display your holiday decor. Follow these tips to create a magical Christmas vignette on your fireplace mantel."

GO GREEN: I have to agree with Robin Baron at Simplifying Fabulous: Green is an awesome color to work with.

"Green is one of my favorite colors. You might notice I use it a lot in Simplifying Fabulous and designs for my clients! The holiday season is a great chance to experiment with a range of the hue beyond the standard hunter green that many, unfortunately, stand by. There's a whole spectrum of the green worth exploring!"
