I hope everyone is having a wonderful week, today I wanted to share some photos and details of our Living Room decorated for Christmas!
As you can see, I went with “non-traditional” colors this year, I love red for the holidays, and I’m sure it will make a comeback, but this year I chose a soft grey blue for my accent color, mixed with creamy whites, touches of black, and silver!
I have to say, I love this softer look for the holidays! Like all of you, the holiday season is such a hectic, busy time for us- and this season of my life is especially busy, it’s so nice to walk in the door of our home and everything looks so peaceful and calm…(even if it only LOOKS that way! 😉
To keep a peaceful, calm look this year I really simplified our holiday decor- a pretty boxwood wreath and ribbon on the mirror…
A sweet embroidered “Merry” pillow on the sofa,
And a few glitzy silver ornaments with ribbons in my large clam shell bowl… that’s it! Easy-breezy!
To be honest, I didn’t miss spending hours wrestling garlands and lights and I really love the lighter, cleaner look!
You may notice there is no Christmas tree…not to worry, when I took these photos we had not yet put up our tree (we like to have a live tree every year and they were not even selling them when I took these photos around Thanksgiving) but our tree is up and decorated now, so I will be sure to photograph it and post it later this month!
I’m not sure if I’ve ever shared this, but I start every day in our living room first thing in the morning with a cup of fresh coffee and a cozy blanket, I have my daily quiet time of reading and prayer here and planning my day. It’s a wonderful place to sit and start my day- and I love that time- it’s even more special this time of year when the Christmas tree lights are on and everything looks sparkly. We don’t have a large home, and I try to use every space we have so I like that our living room has a purpose and gets used daily!
Next week, I will share more photos and details of my office area, but’s here’s a little sneak peek!
Wishing everyone a wonderful week…
