Dream Yuletide Décor for Your Festive Living Room

Dream Yuletide Décor for Your Festive Living Room 04


For many of us, the living room is the center of Christmas: it’s where we put up the tree, where we entertain, or where we get our visit from Santa Claus! Give your living room a real Christmas feel with some of these ideas from Better Homes & Gardens (bhg.com). For a stately formal living room, understated Christmas décor is the key: make the tree the focal point of the room, decorated with vintage and family ornaments, and keep the rest of the décor simple: perhaps plain stockings on a mantel or simple wreaths in the windows. On a modern white fireplace, add red berry trees and a large wreath; if your furniture normally faces the fireplace or a living room TV, you can turn it slightly to focus on the tree and create instant coziness.


Use whatever space you have to advantage: clean off shelving and stack wrapped gifts on it to extend the “trimmings” upward and clear under-tree crowding. Boost a small tree with a beautiful table or pedestal; use your room’s basic color scheme in the trimmings on tree, stockings, or table toppers. Remember, too, that you’re not really limited in Christmas colors; your “red and green” can be pomegranate and lime — or other colors entirely, such as blue and silver, chocolate brown, cream, or gold. Delight the little ones who visit with jars of colorful Christmas candy — decorating that does double duty! — or bright ornaments, paper chains, and bead trims in every color of the rainbow. It’s the season to be merry and bright…so take some of these ideas and have fun!
