During the holidays we usually stick to the traditional green Noble Fur, holiday scented candles and an assortment of holiday theme nick knacks. This year I wanted to create more of a cabin, cozy, with touches of green, red and white. I took a lot of the extra tree trimmings and spread it around the house in various places to add the touch of the Christmas tree greenery.
1. Add Existing Elements
Instead of multiple strands of Christmas tree lights we opted for this single strand, big bulbed lights from IKEA. I threw on some strung wooden beads to tie in the natural wood elements we have on our shelves and coffee table. I also added our angel topper has been in my family since I was a young girl, It’s symbolic to our Christmas traditions.
2. Add Layers and Texture
I wanted to bring some warmth and more texture to our living room, so I decided to layer this animal hide rug. I’m obsessed with textures and layering even the simplest things like throws and rugs! Such a simple way to add that coziness during the winter months.
3. Add Greenery
I went a little over board with the wreaths this year, I am pretty sure I have one in all the rooms in my house. I wanted to spruce up my new frames from Frame Bridge with some Christmas touches. I simply took some extra tree trimmings and added them into a vase, Found this adorable metal banner from target and hung this gorgeous olive wreath from Allmodern.com.
4. Extra Seating
We always tend to have limited seating arrangements in our home since its pretty tight and we don’t always host guest. Around the Holidays we have a lot more family and friends coming by from out of state and for holiday get together’s. I loved this seating option from AllModern.com, its portable and it’s stylish! Another great site is Furniture.com, they offer a great variety in living room furniture and accesories!
5. Battery String Lights
I found these battery operated lights in the dollar section at target and they fit in so well with our handmade garland. Which we made with extra tree trimmings!
There so many different decor styles you can adapt these methods with too!
