When it comes to holiday displays around our home, there are 3 main areas I focus my attention: Living room’s buffet table, Family room’s fireplace, and Living room’s bay window. In today’s post, I’d like to take you on a Holiday Decor Tour around our home.
1. Living room’s Buffet Table Area
Our buffet table sits between our dining room and living room. This is a big focal area in our house because it’s the main wall in our upstairs living space. If you don’t have a fireplace mantel, this arrangement of having a table against a wall will be the next best thing. 🙂
Note: Up until last year, I used to steer clear of poinsettias. Well, last year, Chris brought home poinsettias and I began to change my tune. After seeing the poinsettias on our fireplace, I realized the reasons why I hated them (so red, so traditional, so obvious…) were exactly what adds to the look of the holidays in our home.
2. Family Room’s Fireplace Mantel
I have to give Chris credit for purchasing the red stockings hung on our fireplace. Would I have chosen them at the store? Probably not. My choices would probably veer toward the glittery, shiny, and more modern designs. However, I must say I love each of the sayings embroidered on the stockings. Nothing like a touch of humor for the holidays!
3. Living Room’s Bay Window
One of the benefits of having a bay window is being able to place
junk decor items on the sill. I’m sure my dogs hate it when I have this area decorated for the holidays. It just means less room for them to lounge around. They love barking at our mailman from this spot!
In this photo, you’ll see 2 new pillows I bought for this holiday season. I can’t seem to stop buying pillows! I love how simple yet still festive our “tree” pillow looks against our sofa.
Here’s a final look at the collage of all 3 focal areas:
I had a lot of fun decorating for the holidays. I especially love how excited my kids get when they see the house all decorated for “Santa.” 🙂
Is there a particular decorative detail you like most from this tour? Like this post or have a comment? I’d love to hear your thoughts! Stick around the blog for more year-end topics ahead!
