A living room is often the most important room of all, as everyone gathers in this room and guests also come here. Hence, the decor should be warm, inviting and inspiring. Today we are discussing Christmas living room decor and I promise that these ideas will make your space the coziest in the world!
Basically, every living room has several areas that are important for decoration: a fireplace and mantelpiece, windows and a corner with your Christmas tree. Some living rooms may have all of these parts, others just some, and even if you don’t have a tree, it can fill your living room with festive spirit. I’ll show you how to do it.
If you decorate a Christmas mantle properly, it will easily become a focal point in your living room and you won’t need a tree with an amazing mantelpiece. Some living rooms run out of space so this can be your perfect solution. Light up your mantelpiece with Christmas lights, candles, marquee lights, and signs. Add evergreen garlands and wreaths, snowy or usual ones. Hang stockings and ornaments in the colors you like: these can be arrangements or just ornaments hanging on the mantelpiece. Put candles in your non-working fireplace or make an artificial insert of firewood. Lanterns, berries and pine cones can add a special charm to your mantelpiece. Don’t be afraid to make it really luscious, it will give you a vacation feel.
A Christmas tree is a traditional piece for the winter holidays, and we often cannot imagine winter holidays without a tree: at least we place a tiny or wall tree. Even without decor, a tree can be a focal point of any room – a living room, kitchen, or outdoor space. Choose a tree that suits your style: silver or white for a shabby chic room, snow for traditional and vintage rooms, a modern wall or garden version for a minimalist or contemporary interior. Decorate it as you wish: just lights, pine cones, ornaments, artificial snow or with garlands.
Christmas window decor
Windows can also be decorated to bring a festive spirit inside. The most popular decoration here is a wreath: hanging the same symmetrical wreaths on the window looks cool, stylish and elegant. You can also frame your window with a garland of lights and bows or hang some ornaments over the window. Decorate your window with pine cone garlands or snow-covered pompom garlands and enjoy!
