Decorating for Christmas, the Christmas tree is up

The house is all dressed up for Christmas this year and I’m anxious to share our Christmas home. Let’s start with the tree and the living room. I recently painted this room a soft gray, Sherwin Williams Agreeable gray. It looks good with the teal and aqua accents in here. Christmas living room1 , Bungalow blog

The rug is from RugsUSA, the ottoman and lamps are from Home Goods and the mirrors are from Lowe’s. You can see just a peek of the Christmas tree on the right.

Here’s the tree decorated in blue, silver and gold and everything is so glittery and sparkly. The only new things are the ribbon and wrapping paper and poinsettias, I had everything else.

A wooden tray on the ottoman holds greenery from the yard and an oversized Christmas ornament.

The polka dot wrapping paper is from Target. I think it’s so cute and the colors coordinate well with the tree. Do you do that too? For a tree skirt I used a throw from the couch.

Lots more sparkle and glitter on the top of the tree. There is glitter all over the house and I know I’ll be vacuuming it up for months!Christmas tree3 at Bungalow blog

Here’s looking into the living room from the dining room. You can see a glimpse of the crèche on the table below the initials. It’s so easy to lose track of the real meaning of Christmas but we need to keep focused on the reason for the season.

Since my fabric order was delayed I didn’t have time to sew the curtain panels so they’re pinned on the rod! Ha ha, don’t tell! I’ll sew and line them after New Years.

Merry Christmas!

We recently moved my husband’s mother to a nursing home and I wanted the house to be especially festive for her this year. I know she’ll enjoy the decorations. At age 97, she won’t be with us forever.

I’ll be sharing the dining room, kitchen and the mantel in the family room soon.

  5. Very pretty, Debra! I love the color scheme. I like the size of your tree, too. I could do with something a bit narrower than what we’ve got.
