Welcome to my ‘Favorite Christmas Room Tour’ with 12 inspiring home decor bloggers! From festive living rooms and dining rooms to cozy bedrooms, we are sharing all the details of our favorite rooms this holiday season! We hope you take the tour and stop by all the blogs that I have linked at the bottom of this post, but first, here is a sneak peak.
My favorite room this year is my formal living room! I have always wanted a tall Christmas tree and fell in love with the ten foot King of Christmas flocked tree. These trees are so full that it only takes a few minutes to fluff the tree. There is a flocking mess when you set the tree up, but it has been up several weeks and since has not shed.
These awesome snowflakes wall decals are part of the Christmas collection by Paper Riot, available at Target. They are removable, easy to reposition and leave no residue. What a fun way to quickly to create a winter wonderland in my home!
Our formal living room is right off the entry and opens up to the second story of our home. I snapped this picture from upstairs, to give you a glimpse of this space!
I add a bit of soft, fluffy texture to this space for winter with my white faux fur throws, one to snuggle with and one to soften the look on my coffee table.
I created a Christmas village with my collection of creamy white bottle brush trees, houses and sparkly glass Christmas trees. I love the elegant look of metallics with blue!
Some of my trees and houses light up to create a warm and cozy glow! I hung the wreaths to add some greenery to this space!
These are items that I have been collecting over the years. I try to add a few items that I love each year. These metallic glass trees are from several Homegoods type stores. I used mini cake stands from to add height. I also repurposed some gold light cans to add height to the larger houses as well.
I love to add little reminders about the true meaning of Christmas in my home. One way I do this is simply with signs, handmade or store bought.
I purchased this gold “Merry Christmas” ornaments a few years ago. Sometimes I hang them from the tree, but this year, I added them to my vignettes to add a splash of sparkle.
This blue and wood hutch has been my favorite piece of furniture ever. Ever! I think it shares my love for french country, beadboard, medium wood tones and blue.
It has been fun to decorate each season. I usually store my vintage silver collection inside, so my metallic Christmas decor went well together.
This year I felt inspired to use metallics in gold, copper, silver with pops of aqua blue.
I created mini snow globes in my vintage gold boxes with a few deer, trees and faux snow.
I found these vintage looking santas at my grocery store and immediately loved them. While most of my Christmas decor is not vintage, I hope that it evokes a vintage feel.
If I have extra ornaments that I do not put on the tree, placing them in glass jars is an easy and beautiful way to display them.
This was a plain bookshelf that has been chalk painted after decorative trim was added.
I tried to keep it simple and showcase a variety of new and vintage decor, plus a mix of silver and blue with some touches of gold. I tend to use a lot of symmetry in my decor. It is a simple formula and everything is always well balanced.
And now for the main feature… my Vintage Glam Christmas tree. I wanted to showcase my love for all things glam and vintage using a variety of metallics and blue!
When I decorate my tree, I start with the ribbon, unrolling as I go so that it maintains an organic feel and tucking it into the branches. Some loops are large and some are smaller. You can go in several directions, but I chose to place the gold ribbon diagonally, spacing it a few feet apart. Then I added the metallic beaded garland horizontally, letting it swag from the branches and spacing it about a foot apart.
Then I added the large ornaments. These mirrored ornaments are actually signs that I hot glued eye hooks on to hang. When you have a large tree, you may have to think outside the box to find decor or ornaments large enough to make a statement.
When I hang ornaments, I create a grid over the tree in my mind, so that the ornaments are evenly placed. I will use the grid to place ornaments on different lines and then switch angles or lines for other ornaments. For the smaller ornaments, I just try to fill them in accordingly.
Around the tree, I have placed lanterns filled with bottle brush trees, faux snow and a deer. I also spray painted a pair of paper mâché deer. Its an easy way to update your decor without having to buy new each year.
Extra ornaments are placed in glass lanterns until the packages are wrapped!
I added some silver sparkly picks at the top of my tree and some twisted blue picks throughout the center for contrast.
I wanted my Christmas decor to blend with my regular home decor, but turned up the sparkle a notch.
Heres another view of my Paper Riot wall decals placed within the wall trim. Even my husband thought these were a great addition to this room.
I hope you have enjoyed this part of the tour at the Cuter Tudor!
