Christmas Living Room: Two Ways

Remember when I posted about my favorite Christmas color schemes, blue/silver and purple/gold?  I decided all the inspiration pictures were fun to look at, but I wanted to do something more with them.  I picked one of my favorite pictures from both color schemes and designed a living room around them.

The blue/silver color scheme led me to pick more glamorous decor.  I wanted the blues to really pop, so I stuck with whites and silvers mixed with an occasional pop of dark wood as the neutral accent colors.  I designed it around this Christmas tree from Canadian House and Home.


Here is the fully decked-out blue Christmas living room:


I started with this fabulous Montego navy pennyback sofa.  I loved its clean lines mixed with the tufting to make it feminine and masculine, and oh so glam.  Next, I wanted a rug to ground the room.  I didn’t want anything too dark because I didn’t want to take away from the tree or the already dark sofa.  This fleece rug did the trick.  I

Here is the second half of my parent’s house.  We left off at the master bathroom.  To view the first half, go here.

Home For The Holidays Tour: Part One

I am finally home after a very stressful week and cannot wait to show all of you my parents’ house.  My mom is a great decorator and has been since I was a little girl.  I am sure I got my passion for it from her.  The one thing that stands out in my mind about Christmas was how amazing our house always looked during Christmas, no matter how stressful the time was or how little family was coming over.  My mom loves the holiday season and always goes all-out in her decorating.  I thought now would be a perfect time to give everyone a tour of my real home, when the house is shining in all of its Christmas glory.

After taking all the photos of the house, I realized my mom has a few rules she stands by when decorating for the holidays.  #1 – Work the holiday decor in with your regular decor.  If any of your accessories can be Christmas-ified, than by all means go for it.  It saves you money and time looking for all new accessories.  #2 – Little hints of Christmas decorations go a long way, especially when spread throughout the house.  There are
