Are you ready for some cottage-style Christmas decor ideas? Come along as I take you on a tour of our living room, all decked out for Christmas.
Decorating for Christmas has always presented it’s share of problems due to the size of our home. Our cottage is only 1600 square feet, so it’s important not to go overboard when decorating for the holidays. CLUTTER is not my friend!
I have decided to move away from the more traditional color scheme of red and green in my living room the last couple of years. My color palette consists of more blues, roses, creams, grays and silvers.
We don’t have a fireplace in the living room, so I try to create that “mantle” feel with my glass cabinet.
Our beach cottage is small, so we have started decorating with mini trees. A big Christmas tree would overtake the room. I placed both Christmas trees on stools, in order to give the illusion that they are bigger.
This Christmas tree was decorated with silver mercury glass and vintage turquoise ornaments.
I thought I would be creative, and threw Christmas lights all over the window seat. This presented a wonderful photo opportunity! Jax didn’t seem to mind.
Using wire baskets and dough bowls are perfect for filling with different kinds of ornaments. The living room had several small Christmas vignettes throughout.
My very favorite Christmas decorations are twinkle lights! I try to put them everywhere! Boxwood pots and wreaths are a simple but stunning addition to this beach cottage!
Putting only lights on the second Christmas tree, gives it a more simple look. My living room can become cluttered quite easily, because of how small it is.
Adding decorative pillows and throws to this window seat creates a cozy place to hang out.
Thank you so much for taking this Christmas cottage living room tour with me! As always, I love hearing your ideas for next year!!!
