It is hard to believe that we are almost ten days into December! Our home has been decorated for Christmas since early November but it took a while to complete the finishing touches. Several of the items that I have used are no longer available or already out of stock but I’m sharing similar items to achieve the look of our Christmas living room. If you haven’t decorated yet or you’re just looking for inspiration, you’re in the right spot.

Christmas Living Room Decor: Christmas Mantle

I started with an asymmetrical design for the garland. Our tree sits right next to the mantel so I wanted a simple garland that would not compete with the tree. I purchased the cedar garland by Hearth & Hand last year and layered 5 strands of garland on the mantel. Then, I added battery powered twinkle lights. I worked with Nigh Road to complete the look, with two beautiful mercury glass trees and gold candlesticks. Nigh Road also sent me the beautiful knit stockings and I secured those with gold command hooks. If we add weight to the stockings, I will use a small nail to secure them in the future. Finally, I added one floppy blush bow to finalize the design.

Christmas Living RoomDecor: Flocked Christmas Tree

This is my first year using a flocked Christmas tree in my design plan. I started by purchasing a flocked tree from At Home and while it was gorgeous, it had glitter and made such a mess. I returned it and purchased a flocked balsam fir tree from Target. I love the style and how it has thin with natural styled branches. We have 9′ ceilings and I decided to bend it a bit at the top to fit in our room.

Our Christmas living room - our first white flocked Christmas tree is decorated with sparkling white lights and white and gold ornaments to keep with the neutral living room decor.

Like several years in the past, I decided to keep my tree decor simple. I selected ornaments with metal colors like rose gold, gold, bronze, and silver. I also included mirror and glass ornaments. Fortunately, I already owned several mercury glass ornaments, so it was easy to add to our existing decor. I purchased cheap silver plastic ornaments from Target and spray painted them a matte white. I could not find matte gold stars or bells, so I bought purple glass stars at Hobby Lobby and spray painted those as well.

I really loved the mini gold bead garland from McGee and Co. but it sold out early in the season. I found similar wood bead garland from Amazon and used my favorite matte gold spray paint. The kids selected a few of their favorite ornaments to add to the tree, including some of my ornaments from childhood (notice the 1990 dates). Finally, I added velvet bows to complete the look!

Christmas Living Room Decor: Festive Coffee Table Styling

I recently changed the layout of our living room and purchased a new coffee table. I was so excited to decorate it for the holidays. I used a tray from Home Goods and filled it with evergreen picks from Hobby Lobby. Then, I placed battery operated candles and oversized ornaments in the tray. I love how the color of the ornaments compliment the trees on the mantel and our tree ornaments. I draped my new oyster shell garland and let it cascade out of a bowl on top of my favorite coffee table books.

Christmas Living Room Decor: Festive Finishing Touches

Finally, I added decor from previous years to the built-ins, keeping the decor neutral and simple. I tossed several cozy blankets on the furniture, all made from different textures and styles. I used suction hooks to attach several cedar wreaths to the French doors and completed the look with the same floppy blush bows as seen on the mantel.
