The living room and mantel are all decked out for the holidays! This room is the coziest, sparkly-est place to snuggle up as the holidays get closer, and the Christmas movies are rolling. My neutral and pink holiday mantel and living room are ready for their big tour, so welcome!!! I am participating in a holiday mantel and vignette blog hop hosted by my darling friend, Krista, from The Happy Housie. See the entire lineup at the bottom of this post!
Where to start…where. to. start? Let’s just begin by saying that this is the first holiday season I’ve decorated with our new “vintage” Persian rug. The soft blues, creams, and grays set the perfect tone to layer in our neutrals, rose golds, pinks for the holidays.
After I hung our garland and added the wooden beads and bows, it became apparent that I should probably just keep it really simple on the actual mantel.
One big mirror, and three little bottle brush trees on each side of the mantel did the trick!
I’m using our vintage ladder to hang stockings this year. I was quite proud of myself for finding and coordinating these stockings from the Target clearance bin last year. 😉
The best part of having a giant mirror on your mantel is getting double the twinkle lights! I love the reflection of our Christmas tree in the mirror!
I had a mission to really up my Christmas tree game this year. I feel like this is the best I’ve ever decorated my tree. Christmas tree decorating is an art and skill that takes time to master.
My coffee table has a giant wood bowl filled with rose gold, pink, and cream colored ornaments. They look so pretty in a bowl together, and I love the way the lights reflect off of them.
Christmas tree bokeh is just the best, isn’t it?!
These ornaments are really a mix of new and old. Some are vintage, and some are fresh out of the Hobby Lobby box. 😉
To decorate our tree, I used jumbo sprigs of flocked branches to make the tree look fuller and less greeny-green, if that makes sense. I also used strips of burlap mesh ribbon cut into pieces, and tucked in on each side to make it look almost woven into the tree.I topped the tree off with strands of wooden beads, rose gold and pink ornaments, and a few snowflake ornaments.
Yes, this living room is the coziest place in the house right now! We spend a lot of time here, and we’re not mad about it. 🙂
