Who is in for some rich looking living room decking up with fewer dollars sneaking out from your pocket?

Try this classic decoration idea from Kellynan under the subtitle, ‘GREAT ROOM’, with a live green tree, some present boxes filled with some inexpensive ornaments and a few baskets or bowls you already have handy.

The tree is not overdone with colorful ornaments but some deep red mixed with subtle glittery ornaments. These added to the fairy lights can create the classiest looking tree for your living room.

2. Vintage Enchantment

When I saw the VintageSparkleChic’s Christmas décor, the first image that flashed through my mind was an old magic cottage, with clocks that could speak and teacups that could fly.

The room is filled with collectibles that look really rustic. This idea will spark that up-cycling artist in you and start looking for all the old and discarded stuff lying in the attic.

Simple things like burlap sacks, unused wood crates and chipped doors that look too eerie for a normal day is arranged so beautifully to create this enchanted little space for Christmas.

The sparkly white tree adorned with some big ornaments is an added spell to this holiday wonderland.

3. Bringing Back the Colors

Colors bring much cheer to us at all times. This Christmas, we can fill the outside of our homes with a lot of different colors.

The wonderful combination of red, green and white can bring on us that urge to sing a carol and hop around with the season’s cheer.

Some cozy, comfy white pillows with few red and green plaid pillows and some word pillows with white letters on red make your couch or sofa look more snuggly than ever.

Stockings hung above the fireplace and red tree ornaments placed around them give an extra charm to the room.

The live greenery adds to the life in your living room making you smell the snowy forest come to cover your home.
