For some reason, I love to decorate the house for Christmas. After Halloween, I anxiously count down to an ‘appropriate’ decorate time (typically after Thanksgiving if we’re not having people over and before if there’s a party).
Since we finally had the family room set the way we wanted, I finally got rid of the mismatched on-sale decorations I nabbed at the end of the last 4 seasons. I chose to theme the decorations like the space it was going into: turquoise, silver, and greens. Here’s how the family room in the house looked.
The dining room base colors are brown and green. I didn’t want to make the whole house green, so this time, I brought in reds, whites, and silvers to play off the typical Christmas red and green theme.
The living room is our travel/art/music room and even though there is a common color theme: grey and yellow, I wanted to bring out all of the different colors of Christmas. Primarily, this was because the tree ornaments were of all sorts of origins. I don’t want a Martha Stewert monotone decorated tree… yet. I like the idea of varying ornaments and trinkets.
Actually. I think I like it better this way than normally. Christmas d&eacut;cor year round?
This was the first year we decorated the physical house as well.
