Christmas in the Living Room

Christmas in the Living  Room

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”.

I just sit and enjoy my tree or read a book. It’s a special room that reminds me of the peacefulness we should be celebrating this time of the year.

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.

A rustic tray hold more lighted trees on the piano. I placed a bird figurine with the display and a bird’s nest on it. It’s dressed with the winter greenery from the mantel.

Simple and easy is my design concept this year.

    LuAnn, Everything is sooo beautiful!!!! I know what you mean about just being at peace, with a place to reflect and give thanks at this most wondrous time of year, and you have the perfect setting in which to do so. Wishing you and yours many blessings.

    1. Hi Bobbi! I love to sit in my living room and enjoy the fireplace when it’s not so warm out. It’s hard to believe it’s December 16th and in the 60s. No white Christmas this year! I’m delighted you enjoyed my living room!
      I wish you and your family many blessings too!
