Goooooood morning buttercup and welcome to the Christmas season!! I think we can officially say that now, right? Thanksgiving is done, the pumpkins are put away, and it’s full blown Christmas time. Bring on all the holiday baking, jingle bells, Christmas movies, cozy clothes and maybe even a little snow (but not too much because I hate being cold). It’s officially the holiday season and it’s time to deck the halls! And that’s exactly what I’ve been up to this weekend. I decorated our front room for Christmas and I’m excited to share it with you guys today. As usual, I kept things simple and cozy. And I even used RED, which you know is pretty much unheard of around here!
This year I finally got what I’ve wanted for a loooooooong time now now–a flocked Christmas tree! Isn’t she a beauty? It’s a little smaller than the tree we had last year, but I feel like it fits this room better and I love it so much. As usual I wanted to keep the tree pretty simple–I’m honestly not a big fan of ornaments so I tend to go pretty light with those. But I had to get my vintage wash basin out for the tree to sit in. We’ve used this in years past and I love how it gives the tree a vintage vibe.
We also always do a Christmas tree in our basement and that’s where I like to put all of our homemade ornaments–the kids and I decorate it together every year.
I decided to leave my pile of antique suitcases over in this corner. They were just too cute to take down, so I simply styled them with a small Christmas tree (from Michaels), a few old books, and a little red twine. Simple and easy. And that wreath on the old door is one I picked up a few years ago (from Home Depot).
I opted for a very simple vignette on my old trunk. I used my beloved DIY tray, along with a few red and green vintage books. I actually just got that pair of little green books from my sweet aunt and I feel like they totally have a Christmas vibe.
You probably noticed that I’m using a lot more red this Christmas. And you know what?! I LOVE IT. I’ve actually been really surprised by how much I love it, but it’s kind of fun to see more color in our home. Last Christmas I did a very neutral look and this year I’m just feeling a brighter look. It’s still pretty subtle, but a little red goes a long way, right?
I love how this space came together this year and I think it’s so cozy. It’s actually the perfect spot to enjoy a cup of hot chocolate and a delicious baked good, which you better believe I’ve already done a few times. Calories don’t count during the Christmas season, right?! Right.
Thank you sooooooo much for stopping by the blog today! I can’t tell you how much I appreciate when you spend part of you day here. It’s truly means the world to me.
