Christmas Family Room

Christmas is in full swing at our house. I have always loved decorating for Christmas and try to change things up every year.    

Our family room is where my husband and I spend most of our time when we're relaxing.  It's sunny in the day time and cozy at night.
Winters can be dreary so when decorating for Christmas, I love lots of trees and sparkle and flowers.
 Our fireplace has a gas log that's easy to flip on.  It makes winter almost enjoyable.
We had a real tree every year for many years but, as I mentioned yesterday, it bothered my husband's allergies.  So several years ago, he bought us the largest artificial tree we could find.  I felt it was a good compromise and love how tall it is.
Most years I put a garland on our tree but this year chose not to.  Instead, I loaded it with several sizes of glittering snow flakes and lots of icicles.  

The fur throw on our couch is from Pottery Barn.  Michigan winters are long and cold and our couch is where I hibernate.
I put some more sparkly trees and a worshiping deer on our sofa table behind our couch.
I left our mirror above the fireplace and added two lengths of garland from Hobby Lobby.  I have two of these little wooden wheel barrows.  This one holds cinnamon scented pine cones which fill the room with their scent, especially when the fireplace is burning.

The coffee table holds a vase of white amaryllis and pine and two sleighs of faux evergreen and more scented pine cones.  I put them everywhere and also burn pine scented candles.  I love when friends tell me that our house always smells so good. And the candles make up for not having real evergreen.

I'll be back soon with pictures of our dining room and living room.

  11. I love to see Christmas decor that is something other than the traditional red and green. This is so beautiful and elegant and is such a lovely alternative. The colors are so calming and is so beautiful with your furnishings.
