What kind of Christmas decorator are you? Do you take it all out, dedicate the whole weekend to decorating, and finish in just a day or two? Or do you slowly put up decorations whenever your find a little free time here and there? Well, I’m actually a little bit of both. I usually have big plans and get everything out, making a huge mess. I blare Christmas music and get hyped to get the whole house decorated. I go at it hard for about 3-4 hours, then I’m totally over it all! For the next couple of weeks, I drive my family crazy slowly adding and changing things around the house. I’ll probably even do more of that next week!
Like this mantle shown here … if you follow me on Instagram, you wouldn’t have seen that greenery when I posted a picture this weekend. That’s because I finally put the greenery on this week. I had it in the house, but just never got around to it. For the mantle greenery, I actually started with a garland that I purchased at Michaels. Then, I added clipped, fresh greenery to it to fill it out and a little smell to it!
I’m so excited to share our Living Room tour with y’all (at least what it looked like a few days ago)! I love colorful spaces and this space is no exception. The color from the room all comes from the ikat drapes. I fell in love with this fabric, then tried to create a colorful, yet serene color palette based off of the fabric. Take a peek around and let me know what you think!
For Christmas décor, I don’t exactly change the existing décor much. Instead, I add in the Christmas tree, some live greenery and a few Christmas touches around the room. One of my favorite Christmas décor touches I got this year is this little “Merry” pillow from Target.
Now that the mantle is decorated, we’ll have at least we have over a week to enjoy before Christmas. The color palette in this room is bright and fresh, so I tried to add a few cozy textures and items to make it feel just right for the Christmas season. Although we have been having crazy warm weather here, so we’ve had the ceiling fan on and the doors open way more than usual for December!
We hope you enjoyed our Living Room tour! If you stop by house later this week, you never, know, I might have changed or added some other Christmas decorations by then.
