christmas in the living room




Just popping in today to share a few snapshots of the living room. I’ve been working on a styling project for the last week, and in between set ups, I did manage to get a few images of some of my favorite spots in the living room.  

 

This is a little holiday vignette on our living room desk. I’ve been collecting these little vintage advertising crocks over the last two years, and now with less time spent at thrift stores, I've been treating myself to a few new ones from ebay recently.  


 



A new place to keep some of my favorite books in the living room… My friend Dennis makes these pretty mahogany benches, so I just stacked two, and they seem to do the trick. 
 
Our living room is basically finished now. We added practically every mirror in the house to this large expanse of wall, and they seem to do the trick of adding lots of light. When seated in the room, we mostly we get reflections of the garden, which is lovely. 
 

Two of our family trees blend in with the grouping, as well. I’m really into genealogy and always have been. Back in the day, I’d spend my time researching our family at university libraries. Now it’s so easy, and everything can be done online. 
  
PS that little pink house was a roadside find this summer, along with a bunch of other discarded Christmas goodies. 


 



Our lovely Welsh Dresser has now become the centerpiece of our living room. Since the dining room's too small for such a large piece of furniture, this guy now sits front and center on the back wall where we can admire it from almost every room downstairs. 
 
This hutch is a well-loved family heirloom, and rumor has it, it originally came from the Henry Ford estate. I think the best way to show it off is with lots of white tableware and accessories. 


 



My hubby actually added some of the holiday décor to the shelves while we were decorating the tree. 🎄 Just the right amount of Christmas cheer, I think! Thanks, dear. 😘 


 



Here's a little peek at the styling work I'm doing this week for Kalyana Textiles, and I couldn't help but sneak in a little Christmas set up using their pretty red and white napkins. 


I'll check back with you soon, and I hope you'll check back with me too!

favorite holiday accents for the table





You may have seen the Christmas inspired by nature tablescape that I shared earlier in the month. Well today I’m back to share how a few little elements that I found on Amazon helped bring the table all together. 

 




Of course, the tableware basics are things I’ve already had, and then I went out and foraged a few fern fronds to divide up as a natural looking runner.  

 




An extra bag of cranberries leftover from Thanksgiving did the trick to add some festive color to the table. 

 




Special holiday interest is added to each place setting, and it was really so easy to put together with some key craft pieces. 

 




I’m not that crafty, but these were easy elements to combine... 

 




I whipped out my trusty old glue gun to make these mini wreaths, and dug into my supply of twine to bring things together. 

 




Only 10 more days until Christmas! 

 




Here are the little things helped bring everything together to create this festive table: 

(Just click on the name of each item)

 

 




All in all, this is one of my favorite holiday looks. Neutral colors on the table, with just a hint of natural green and fruity elements makes my heart sing! 

 

This look has been a theme in my home all season.
