Christmas Living Rooms

"Why stop at the Christmas tree? Extend your decorations to the rest of your living room with these ideas.

Start with the Focal Point
"Often the best place to start is the natural focal point of the living room. In this case, the fireplace acts as a natural foundation and is brought to the forefront thanks to festive greenery and a berry-accented garland across the mantel. A pitcher of greenery on one side is balanced by a miniature wreath on the other, and the whole vignette is completed by quaint, painted letters that spell "Noel."


Use Fabric Details
"By nature, a living room is meant to be a special place to relax and spend time with family and friends. Get the look by layering a collection of old and new fabric-wrapped details -- things like soft upholstered seating, linen drapes, and pillows. Finish with framed holiday family photos, greenery tucked into vases, and a decked out Christmas tree arranged in a place of honor.


Go Sophisticated
"Although the classic red-and-green scheme has dominated holiday living rooms, this modern sitting room proves that your existing color palette can inspire the prettiest of holiday themes. Black, white, gold, and gray mix together in both ornamental and everyday vignettes for a look that feels transitional and on point.


Use Rustic Elements
"Create a rustic holiday living room with simple, natural accouterments like grain sack stockings, olive leaf wreaths, and pops of French blue in the pillows, on the mantel, and throughout the Christmas ornaments. For an easy furniture transformation, cover your sofa and chairs with linen sheets -- tres chic!"
