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:
