Christmas in the Family Room

Hello everyone!

I want to thank all of you for your sweet comments regarding the death of my father last week. They were very much appreciated.  

Well, it's officially the Christmas season isn't it?  You know what that means!  Christmas decorations!  I didn't sway from my neutral color scheme either.  I chose golds, silvers, whites, creams and classic greenery.  I didn't have to make drastic changes to my mantel either since I felt like my candlesticks, crowns and crosses fit my scheme well.  

We have been enjoying cooler weather lately, so a fire in the fireplace takes place most nights.



I draped greenery on my mantel and then added some white fairy lights.  My stockings are cream with metallic gold polka-dots.  I love polka-dots! The gold dots on the stockings pick-up the gold on the accessories too.




My coffee table got changed up with a gold tinsel tree and mini tree skirt underneath it.  Then, some fluffy pom pom garland was draped across it with a simple French Eiffel tower ornament in the center. I was trying to capture a French style this year.




I will continue to share more decorations throughout the month.  I post often on Instagram so please follow me there as well!  

Hope you all have a lovely weekend!

~ Kelly ~

For some reason I have settled into decorating one thing per day. Unlike my usual "get it all done" decorating. Your table looks so pretty!

Good morning Kelly! So nice to wake up to the photos of your lovely home, all dressed up for the holidays in its sophisticatied and elegant style you're known for. The pom poms are too cute, and definitely add to the French theme you're going for! I love it all!

Your family room must be a cozy place to relax with your fire burning in the evenings, Kelly. Your mantel looks so pretty with the greenery and twinkle lights accenting your candlesticks and crown!
