Christmas in the Great Room

Pin It!
Welcome to our holiday great room (but please excuse the crazy lighting):


Come on in ... have a peek around.


Go grab some egg nog and have a seat (I even turned the wing chairs around to face the sofa for a better conversation area):



Feel free to toss our holiday pillows from Pottery Barn aside so that you can get comfy: 


That goes for this festive pillow (from Wal-Mart), too ...


I hope Buck, our guest of honor to our mantelscape, appreciates that I mixed in faux shed antlers to our coffee table centerpiece:


Hmmmm ... think I should add a little ornament or two to our Charlie Brown tree?


As for our *main* tree ... this year, I decided not to wrap it with mesh, but, instead weaved red, gold and green glittery garland throughout it.  I also decided to add more pops of white:


What didn't change (and, I doubt, ever will) is my love for crazy toppers!


These fun oversized snowflakes from New River Pottery are the perfect solution for adding more white to our tree:


As are these cute sparkly fellas (also from New River Pottery):


Don't you just love the nighttime glow?   


Now, it's your turn!  I'm off to visit your amazing holiday homes!

Becca,
This is absolutely GORGEOUS! The lighting is lovely and really showcases your beautiful rooms. The sofa pillows and throw are so cozy, makes me want to curl right up. I'm telling you...all your hard work will be showcased in a magazine, it's picture perfect. Thanks for sharing, you've outdone yourself yet once again! XO ~Liz

Beautiful, Becca! I would love to be sitting in this room ~ day or night. I imagine though that while we'd be chatting, my eyes would be moving around taking it all in. This room definitely says Christmas!

Loving your Holiday Walmart pillow, and stunning tree! Everything is lovely!

Suzy said...

Simply stunning, Becca! I don't know what in the world you meant by crazy lighting because all of the photographs are fabulous! BTW - I love me some crazy toppers too! We're heading to the beach the day after Christmas so I hope to hit the after Christmas sale at New River Pottery. I bet it will be a zoo!

Carol said...

It is absolutely beautiful, Becca! Your rooms are so gorgeous anyway, but toss in the "holiday spirit," and it's magical! Has BHG mag called yet?

Teresa@oursoutherncountryhomeandfarm said...

It is all so festive and beautiful, Becca, but I am in love with the deer head! You obviously had much more energy than me this year because I haven't done nearly as much as you!

Your room is so pretty and the tree is striking. Love the pillows too.

I really loved looking at your house. It is magical. I am pining, since I will not be decorating this year. My kids have flown the nest and this will be the first Christmas I will be alone in the last 22 years of marriage. My husband will be travelling over the holidays. Thank you for making me so happy just looking at your decoration .. from Kuwait.. Angela
