Happy weekend friends!! There are only two rooms I don’t decorate in red and green and those are the living room / Honey’s office and my office. Let’s take a peek inside today.
Living Room Aqua and White Christmas Decor
I much prefer a collected tree over a styled tree, but every tree has a time and place, right?! In our home, the living room tree has a color scheme – silver, gold and aqua. I do it here because I wanted a tree that could be seen from the street and the foyer, but that didn’t require finding new things for it every year.
I have a video of the dining room and living room together below. I have still pictures of the dining room that I’ll share once I sort through and edit!
On the antique secretary, I keep a collection of my boy’s Santa pics from through the years. I always use them in my den and kitchen, but now that we are on year 16, I needed more space to show them all! (Santa 2020 will be my first and hopefully only horizontal picture. HA!)
I also have my Grandma-O’s Christmas music box displayed here. I remember this in her home when I was really little and am honored to proudly display it in my home now.
My mom, sister and I made the nativity canvas out of oyster shells last Christmas. You can see it here! Sister gave me the angel canvas the Christmas Matthew was born.
I also keep my beloved Christmas pyramid from my Adventures by Disney Germany trip in the living room. I bought this in the charming town of Rothenburg and love it as much here at home as I did abroad. I still haven’t lit the candles – I’m terrified of burning the whole thing down.
Half of this room stays in a state of disarray as it is Honey’s office. Creative cropping makes it disappear. :-)
Office Colorful Christmas Decor
Next is the my office. I revamped this room back in January, so it was fun to also rethink my Christmas decor. As usual, I went with PINK, because I need a little more pink in my life!
You can take a quick two minute tour of my office in this video!
Mother gave me the CUTEST desk plaque ever last Christmas and it makes me smile every time I walk in and sit down to work.
I have a simple calendar from Simply Jessica Marie on the desk as well. (I swiped all the junk that is usually here in the desk drawer).
Nutcracker themed nutcrackers from my parent’s collection on the credenza.
My Lilly themed tree is in my Lilly book basket this year and I love having it here when I’m working. I usually start my work day around 5:30 AM, and it feels extra magical with the twinkle lights. It’s hard to see the tree topper, but it is pink and gold and belonged to my grandma. The ornaments are from Lilly direct and etsy! CeeCee made me the angel last year.
While my boys have outgrown the cute advent calendar, I still like to hang it up. <3
The dresser is used for storage in here, and I swap out just a couple of the decorative items with Chrsitmas things. A bowl of candy keeps the kids wanting to come in and visit with me. John made the art years ago and it is still one of my all time favorites. Neither of my boys are artistic so I treasure the few things that have come home and looked thoughtful and intentional. Can anyone else relate?!
I’ll continue the tour next week!
