Okay, part three of my Christmas Home Tour! I thought this was going to be the last post but then I realized, I have another tree that I completely forgot about! That’s when you know you have too many trees. I hope you’ve all enjoyed everything so far. Today I’m showcasing my favorite room, the living room. This year’s theme is a rustic/woodland/vintage theme with touches of musical influences and even some leopard!
This print is available in my Etsy shop! When I first moved out on my own, I was on a vintage/red kick. One day I woke up and thought, “I hate red! Why am I still using it?”. So away it went and I never wanted it back in my house until now. I knew I could bring in touches of it here and there and not be sick of it. Plus, it really was a great color to go with my theme. So the red is back and I am LOVING it! The stockings are from….Dollar Tree! I looked everywhere for a plaid that I liked and lo and behold, there they were waiting for me at the DT! I did add some fur I had at home to the top of them because the original was a little blah, but for $2, how can you beat that?!?
I also brought in some fresh greens for the first time this year. I got boxwood trimmings for the mantle and some pine (or is it evergreen? Or neither?) for the chandelier. I really love how that looks. So elegant!I’m currently crushing on my Scottie kindling holder from the Christmas Tree Shop. He’s so adorbs!I made this pinecone display with a bag of cinnamon scented ones from Michaels, some clippings from the chandelier greens and some oranges that were on their way to the trash but ended up getting dried in the oven (and a little burnt!).
One of the most important places for holiday entertaining…the bar!
And now for the tree!
I didn’t want a traditional tree skirt this year for two reasons: 1. the space was limited as it was in a corner in between rooms and seating, and 2. it was going to be hard to find one to go with my theme and I didn’t want to spend a fortune. So I pulled out the burlap I’d bought a couple of years ago and never did anything with and wrapped the tree stand with that. Problem solved. It’s rustic looking and didn’t cost me any extra money!
I know a pineapple isn’t rustic but we bought it at our local historical society this past weekend and you know how much I love pineapples!
You’ll notice some subtle hints of leopard mixed in with the plaid. That was all inspired by these pillows.
My sister gave me that stuffed reindeer when we were little for Christmas. I’ve always loved it. And how about that reindeer silhouette?? My dad painted that for me!
Okay, so this is the longest.post.ever. Sorry! I hope you’ve enjoyed it! It looks like I’ll have one more post with my travel themed tree and the outdoor decor and that will do it! Have a great day, everyone!
