Winter Kitchen Mantel

As most of you know, 
Purple Chocolat Home 
has a Mugnaini Pizza Oven in 
the kitchen.  Besides being a fun way to cook 
and party, it is always great to decorate.

I like to transition from full out Christmas decor, 
so little snowy sparkling touches around 
the house, so that it doesn't go from glam to drab. 

Frosty white snowgirls flank the opening to the 
pizza oven, while white snow fairies look down 
from above.  

I found these adorable snow girls a few years 
ago at Home Goods, and knew they would be 
fun, both for Christmas and winter.

Trees and jewels sparkle as the winter sun starts to 
come through the windows. Sometimes I just go 
and sit in the sun in the kitchen during the winter.  
I just love those quiet moments basking in the winter sun. 

The top of the mantel is draped with two garlands - 
one with silvery crystals, and one pale pink and 
silver balls.  Two frosty and furry stars are also included.  

You know there are fairies for all seasons living 

They create a touch of winter magic.

Sometimes we light a fire just for ambiance during 
the cold winter months.  That way we can sit in 
the kitchen with a cup of hot chocolate and just relax.  

Do you transition to winter, or go right into Valentines? 

Thanks for stopping by to see our Winter Mantel.

Chocolat - French for Chocolate. I adored chocolate from a young age when I had to sneak in the cupboard to find where my mother had hidden the Nestle's Chocolate Chips. Having read about the famous chocolat shoppes in Paris, when I finally got there I was determined to try a chocolate from every Paris shoppe. I invite you to share my adventures in creating, in travel, and in life.


  1. Such a pretty wintery look!! I usually keep my Swarovski stars and snowflakes up for the month of January and i keep a few snowmen around....i dont really decorate much for Valentines Day!

  2. Jackie, that's pretty! I love your idea of lighting a fire in the kitchen to just sit, and also sitting in the sunlight. I do that too. I don't really decorate for Valentine's and for winter, I just enjoy a nice mix of cozy textiles.

  3. Absolute perfection! I love your Winter look.
