Christmas Home Decorating Ideas For A Beautiful Holiday

Christmas Home Decorating Ideas For A Beautiful Holiday

Christmas time to me is the time I connect with my past. The rituals of planning and decorating for the holidays makes this my favorite time of the year! The romantic notion of Christmas gives the best gift of all...memories.  I relish all my fond memories of Christmases past. I try to recreate my favorite memories each year. Remembrances of spending a week in the kitchen surrounded by the smell of home baked cookies and cinnamon rolls. The joy of wrapping presents, especially when you know it's the perfect gift. Getting out cherished ornaments that have been decorating trees for generations! I love keeping up cherished traditions, but I always look for opportunities to create new ones. This year I'm adding a bit of romance to my decor.

In the entryway I'm keeping it simple to greet my friends and family this season. Antique green gold tipped trees set this scene. I couldn't resist this adorable penguin when I was shopping at HomeGoods. I think it adds a magical element to my decor.

I love the romantic look of a flocked tree. It doesn't snow here so of course my dreams are of a white Christmas. I added gorgeous florals to my tree this year. Sparkling silver ferns and coppery gold flowers. The other room decor I kept simple, I wanted the main focus on the tree.

Chunky knits and faux furs are perfect for cozy nights spent tree-gazing.

christmas mantel

I love the main design of my mantel from last year so much, but I still made little changes for this year. Beautiful faux fur and velvet stockings add so much soft texture to the mantel.

For a bit of romantic whimsy, I tied gorgeous ribbons casually to the stockings. A simple stack of birch logs with a faux sprinkling of snow completes the romantic rustic theme.

I love having a tree in my bedroom! My bedroom already has a rustic romantic feel with the chalk painted headboard and pink quilt. This small flocked tree is irregular in shape making it look quite natural.

The tree was decorated with old antique ornaments from my Grandma's tree. My Grandma was glamorous and had a pink Christmas tree. I treasure those memories of Christmas Eve at her home.

Simplicity in my home office! I keep the decor white, light, and bright. A few pink ornaments to echo the beautiful pink colors in the rug.

family room

The family room tree is themed red and black. In here I have kept the look casual and natural. It started with the ice skates on the tree. Just like if you were out ice skating on a lake, the tree is filled with natural bottle brush critters, natural fiber spheres, and black lanterns.

Plaid, velvet, sweater knit, and even leopard throw pillows are the perfect cozy compliment to this tree.
