The rush is on, are you ready? Wrapping, baking, meal planning and table setting. It gets crazy this time of year! I like to relax and take it easy, especially in my living room. After the dinner dishes are done, I enjoy some quiet time in the room that says, “Christmas Time is Here”.
My Staffordshire dogs are sitting pretty on my coffee table among lighted trees. This time of year is about lights and their warm glow. I try to use candles and lighted items everywhere I can in my designs. Christmas is the celebration of our Lord and the light he brought into a world that was in darkness.
The mantel this year is a mixture of winter greenery and some of the birds that are perched in my tree. I wanted to keep the design simple and charming. It compliments my tree in that some of the elements are the same used in both.
I stenciled pillows this year with a tree design and attached (tack stitched) crystal beaded chain as garland to the pillow. Their size sits perfectly on the club chairs that flank the fireplace.
Simple and easy is my design concept this year.
I hope you enjoyed my “Christmas in the Living Room” post!
