Christmas Living Room 2017

Happy Holidays everyone! I’m so excited to share with you all our Christmas living room. This year I wanted our home to feel like a winter wonderland…calm and peaceful. With that in mind I wanted to use a little bit of blue through out the house. As soon as I started opening the Christmas plastic bins I was overjoyed with excitement! I literally started pulling everything out, the candy cane glass ornaments, snowman, silver reindeer, garland…. then I became overwhelmed with all the red and white. I love traditional Christmas colors and I have always used red and white during this time of year but as much as I wanted to use those colors they were over powering the look and feel I was going for. After a few days of staring at my red and white Christmas decor, my husband finally convinced me that I needed to stick to my vision and not use red. So I took everything down… with the help of my husband of course heheh and I felt relieved.

This is my first year decorating with a blue color scheme and to be honest I’m loving it! With that said welcome to my Christmas living room tour! Which is part of the Seasonal Simplicity Home Tour Series hosted by Krista from The Happy Housie and April from House By Hoff! Be sure to check the week-long schedule at the end of this post for more Christmas decor inspiration.

I kept everything extra simple this year. Our tree doesn’t have much ornaments just a few snowflakes from the dollar store, white and turquoise ornaments and the sweet little bird houses I made a few years back (you can get the tutorial HERE).

I kept the coastal vibe very subtle by leaving the glass jars and a few sea stars.

I hope you enjoyed my simple take on a blue Christmas and who knew I would love it as much as I do.

Don’t forget to check out this weeks Christmas homes line up!

XOXO,

Norma
