Tonight I am sharing our night time living room lit up by Christmas lights. I will be sharing daytime photos of our living room and our Christmas home tour soon but tonight while enjoying a cup of tea in the living room I turned on the Christmas lights and took a few photos.
This year I decorated our home with a cozy northern cabin feel. Rustic and natural with lots of neutrals and greenery. Red, white, black and grey with plaids and checks. Sparkle with shiny balls, mercury glass and glittery ornaments. Cozy blankets, throws and pillows.
My new clear Christmas storage bins, shared here, made it easier to use our decorations from previous years in new ways. I only added a few new decorations and ribbons this year. This olive bucket is filled with white globe lights, greenery sprays, pine and sugar cones, birch logs and red wood berries. With the Christmas ice storm last year in our area so many trees had to be seriously trimmed or cut down. While driving to work one morning I spotted a pile of birch branches bundled at the curb for yard waste pick up and stopped to pick them up. I love birch logs and I love free!
Our living room tree this year has a red and black buffalo check ribbon; red wooden berry garland; large 'snowy' pinecones; white sweater trees; silver and brown mini bells; balls of various sizes in clear glass, silver, cream and white; glittery snowflakes and deer; tiny buffalo plaid boxes; and felt moose in red and brown. I used medium size C6 bulbs in cool white and warm white.
I love the glow of the basket in the corner. The vintage skis were a $10 find a few years ago. The dresser has more mercury glass, Christmas balls, pinecones and greenery.
The tray on the coffee table holds large mercury glass ornaments, red, white, and silver Christmas balls in various sizes, more wood berry garland, pinecones and tiny white stars.
Thanks for visiting. I'm going to pour another cup of tea, sit on my favourite end of the couch and enjoy some knitting by Christmas light. I hope you find a moment to relax too.
