Cozy Christmas Living Room Tour

Well it happened guys. This weekend I got the itch to start decorating for Christmas and I decided to just roll with it even though I planned to wait until after Thanksgiving. But I figured a few days early wouldn’t matter, right?! Right. So on Friday afternoon I started pulling bins out of storage and the kids were SO excited. They’re finally getting old enough to really help, so I let them be my little design assistants for the weekend and it was so much fun. My son actually came up with one of the ideas I’m sharing in today’s post and I think you all are really going to like it! So grab your coffee or a snack and let’s hop to it.

Last year my Christmas decor was very neutral. I just wasn’t feeling a lot of red or green, so everything was white and flocked. And even though I loved it, this year I was feeling like a little more color. So I added pops of red with a few touches of black too. And I LOVE it. I think the color just brings this room to life.

When I saw these black snowflake pillows last week I had to snag them. Aren’t they so pretty? I don’t know what it is about black decor lately, but I’m just so drawn to it. And I really love how it looks with the neutral background.

So my son and I were trying to decide how to style these barn door TV covers and he actually suggested hanging our stockings on them. What a great idea, right?! I was all about it, so we layered these three stocking and I love how it turned out. I think it’s such a fun way to display these stockings.

How darn cute is the reading nook all spruced up for Christmas? I just got that farm fresh tree sign from this little shop and I think it’s so cute. It fits perfectly with the barn lights. (The shop also gave me a coupon code for you guys! Use Sarah15 for 15% off your order.)

Can we just talk about this little wooden toboggan for a second?! I got it from the Target dollar spot a few days ago and I think it makes the perfect little tray for a few Christmas goodies. I styled it with a couple of old books, a spool of red twine, a small tree, and a Peppermint candle that smells like Christmas heaven. I love this little vignette!

Well thanks so much for stopping by my cozy Christmas living room tour today. I hope it gave you an idea or two for your own home. Be sure to let me know if you have any questions! And while you’re here, you might want to drop by the other holiday posts:

    Hi Sarah, Love the look this year of your living room, and hanging the stockings on the doors, great job Owen!!!! But I have to ask, where did you buy the little white houses on your tv table? I love them and have the perfect spot for them on my mantle.

    Have a blessed day,
    Love your blog friend

    For me Christmas is lots of red and Green so I like your pops of color. I think maybe your son has inherited your creative genes. He must have been so proud when you went with his suggestion. Good job mom.

    Your room is so pretty!! Makes me wish I had a room to change up my style occasionally but after so many years TRADITION wins with minor changes. Keep up the good work❤

    Hi Sarah
    Everything is so beautiful. I th8 k that your son may be a chip-off-th old block in decorating…lol great idea to put the stockings on the barn doors. Also I love the sleigh on your table.
    The black pillows really look asweoms

    Love that you used some color in your Christmas theme! Some of the blogs are so lifeless and sterile with all whites and neutrals. Christmas is all about color and texture and music and joy. Save all that white for January and February when it’s more fitting to replicate the feel of winter! Cheers!! 🎅🏻

      I was all about the white decor last Christmas, but I am definitely feeling the color this year Trixie! Thanks for stopping by 🙂

    Loving the pops of colour Sarah, looks amazing!! Those black snowflake cushions and red throws just warm the room up 😍 and absolutely love the staggered stockings, great idea! Next gen designer! I’m so envious of you guys in America with your cold, snowy Christmas’! In Australia it’s always sooo hot! But that does mean Christmas by the poolside 🤔 so must say I’m still happy with that! Also all the lovely decor you post, they don’t ship to Australia ☹️ Magnolia in Texas ship to Aus but they’re soooo expensive 😭 anyway sorry for the moment of complaining! Your ideas are great so I can definitely get inspiration from that! Well done and keep up all your hard work! God bless x

      Sarah said:

      Oh Gayle, I would trade you!! What a dream it must be to live in Australia. It’s on my bucket list–hopefully one day I can visit!!

    Hey Sarah! Your son had the best idea! I love the way the stockings turned out! Did you change the base of the flocked tree to get it to fit in the basket? I bought a large basket but the base is still too large and was wondering how you got yours to work.

    • 11.21.18
      Sarah said:

      For that one in the corner? I did have to stuff a bunch of stuff in that basket to get the tree to stand up straight. It def wouldn’t fit in with the legs!
