Welcome to my Christmas cottage living room tour! You’ll see that I decorate a bit differently than many. One of my challenges with this space, is to not over decorate and clutter, because it’s is smaller than most.
I don’t use the more traditional color scheme of red and green in my living room. I decorate for the holiday using more blues, roses, creams, grays and silvers. These colors seem to blend better with the more bold beach color palette I have going on in here. We don’t have a fireplace, so I try to create the same type of feel of a mantle, above my glass cabinet where I house all my quilts.
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!!!
