Celebrate Christmas in my cozy and festive family room decorated with rich reds and greens and a just a little bit of sparkle.
When I decorate for Christmas, I generally don’t just put a touch here and a touch there. Nope – when I decorate for Christmas, I DECORATE FOR CHRISTMAS! 😀 My family room is filled with touches of Christmas throughout the entire space.
My tree is filled with bright and cheery Christmas red and green and some amazing silk ribbon. For variety, I used two different patterns and widths of the same ribbon – the narrower ribbon is checked and the wider ribbon is striped. I think that the ribbon is what pulls the whole tree together and gives it its casual elegance vibe.
I took the time to go through all of my ornaments, one by one, and only use the ones that fit with my festive Christmas theme this year. All different shades of reds and greens made the cut.
Pops of white, sprinkled throughout brighten the tree and keep it from looking too dark.
Underneath the tree, you’ll find all of the presents wrapped in coordinating red and white wrapping paper and pops of green added with the ribbon on some of the presents.
The fireplace seems to just be an extension of the tree. I draped an inexpensive garland across the mantel and tucked in lots of frosted red berry picks. The wreath was super simple to make! First I added a couple of bows, made with the same checked ribbon as is on the tree, and then just tucked in a few red ornaments. I love the look of the shiny red and the satin red ornaments mixed together.
The real stars of the mantel though are these gorgeous red mercury glass candlesticks. They were a little bit of a splurge, but ooooh, I love them! I’m already thinking ahead to where I can use them next Christmas.
The sofa is filled with a variety of pillows – some Christmas’y and some are just plaid flannel.
A grouping of tin houses is nestled on the sofa table behind the couch. These little guys are in such an awkward place to photograph, but I wanted you to see them.
I kept my coffee table very simple by arranging white candles, faux greenery and red berries on top of a grain sack’ish table runner.
To finish the room off, I decorated the console table by adding a couple more tin houses to the vintage-look scales, along with a red truck nestled on a bed of artificial greenery…
…and added a cute little stocking garland to my blanket ladder.
Thank you so much for stopping by to spend some time in my family room today!
