This year, we kept our holiday decorating very simple. It is all about layers, different textures, and a few bold holiday statements – namely a couple of signs, fresh wreaths, and a large Douglas Fir tree.
To make our family room even more cozy for the Winter, we layered blankets on our couch and chairs, rugs on top of one another, and we placed fresh greenery just about any place we could think of.
We used this holiday chalkboard print from Dear Lillie to make a big statement in our family room. Not only does it make a big statement in our family room, but this is also the angle from the dining room, so it can be enjoyed while sitting in there as well.
We layered books on top of our picnic basket, which is on top of a leather ottoman.
Fresh greenery from our yard placed inside a red quilted stocking hangs from our media cabinet.
Some days, we layer up the couch even more by adding houndstooth fabric to the cushions. It adds an extra layer of coziness, and it also helps keep our white couches looking better during the Winter months, when we spend lots of time indoors & in this room in particular.
I’m actually sitting on this couch as I type this post up! It’s one of my favorite spots in our house, especially this time of year. I am looking into our dining room with a perfect view of our Christmas tree as the rain comes pouring down. I love soaking up the smell of our fresh tree and the quietness of our house in the evening.
