As we get closer to Christmas, I’ve been showing more details of each room that’s been decorated. Today I’m sharing the family room. I’m saving the Christmas tree in the living room for last, although I showed one pic of it in my Holiday Home Tour post. Anywho … on to the family room.
Christmas in the Family Room
Sticking with my “Keep It Simple Stupid” theme this year, I didn’t get too fussy with the decorating in here.
In fact, I used a couple kitties to decorate. My first e-book is going to be “Decorating with Cats.”
(I say that tongue-in-cheek … but ya never know!)
A live Norfolk pine on the left gets wrapped in an old flour sack,
while a faux tree on the right gets stuffed in an ironstone pitcher.
A chair that’s seen better days is covered in a quilt until we get new furniture.
Hanging from the window are wooden stars from a local shop.
When I saw the porcelain stars at another store, I got the idea to pair them up for the holiday.
Greenery, candles, and vintage glass ornaments are all that’s needed for a Christmas vignette.
The Farm pillow was made by Stacey at A Sort of Fairytale. Check out her cute blog!
In the summer I use this little crate to hold wildflowers.
The craft cabinet gets into the Christmas spirit with poinsettias, greens and candles.
I love all colors of poinsettias but creamy white ones are my fave.
As soon as I saw it I knew I wanted to stuff it with greenery and hang it up.
And Jill at Sew a Fine Seam made these fabric star ornaments.
I strung them together with a strip of burlap to hang down the side of the cabinet.
I love having things in my home that were created by other bloggers.
Here’s my favorite comfy chair. The bookcase normally sits in the living room,
but every year it gets moved to make way for the Christmas tree.
This year I decided to take out any books that weren’t red or green,
and replaced their space with small touches of Christmas.
This is my first and only bottle brush tree. After the holidays, I hope to purchase more when they’re on sale.
I might try finding cheap-o green ones before then and try my hand at bleaching them.
Tonight we’ll be watching Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer in this room.
It’s my favorite holiday classic to watch, followed closely by The Elf and Home Alone.
