Christmas Living Room 2015

Hello, hello! I’m so honored to be a part of the Christmas Room Tour hosted by Chris at Just A Girl! Things are definitely a bit more low-key this year since we have a newborn in the house, but I love decorating for Christmas and I always enjoy getting to peek into beautiful spaces! If you are hopping over from Cassie’s place, welcome! I’m excited to show you our living room that is all decked out for the holidays!

My decorating style is collected, eclectic, layered, imperfect and comfortable. I love for things to tell a story…so here is our living room. If you’re looking for perfection, you better click away now. You’ve been warned. 😉

The Duncan Phyfe sofa was Memaw’s. I need to get it re-upholstered, but part of me wants to just leave it as it is.

I really enjoy decorating with fresh greenery. It’s a pretty good deal to buy a fresh garland and then cut it up to use all over the house.

I bought new chairs for the living room earlier this year. I LOVE them so much. Now I just need to finish the rest of the furniture. Since I’m not pregnant any more, maybe I will have more energy to get things done. The tree is a collection of handmade vintage ornaments and various textures, patterns and shapes. My little people help rearrange the ornaments near the bottom. 😉

I decorated my “faux buffet” with fresh greenery, a plaid wreath I made a couple of years ago and a cute little reindeer I found at a local shop.

Memaw’s old NOEL sign makes me smile. It wouldn’t feel like Christmas without it hanging up somewhere.Christmas Living Room 2015 | MyBlessedLife.net

We are planning a remodel to finish up projects that we’ve started and haven’t finished yet. 2016 is going to be a fun year of a lot of updates! This room is getting new windows, crown molding and baseboards for starters! 😉Christmas Living Room 2015 | MyBlessedLife.net

If you’ve been reading my blog, you know I have a thing for plaid. When I saw this Thermos case at an antique store a few weeks ago I knew it had to come home with me. Isn’t it so cool?! Christmas Living Room 2015 | MyBlessedLife.net

Kid friendly coffee table decor = shatterproof ornaments.

This room makes me so happy. It’s not about the stuff (although I do love pretty things!), but I love the wonderful memories that have been made in this room over the years.

    Hey Myra….everything looks beautiful, as usual!! I love that you incorporate so many different things into your decor that have special meaning for you. And I love the plaid Thermos case!! I found a couple of plaid thermoses a few weeks ago at Goodwill and it was definitely a good day thrifting! :) Thanks for sharing – I so enjoy your decorating style and have missed you on the blog! Would love to see your fireplace and mantel all decorated for Christmas…. Merry Christmas to you and your family!

    I love everything about your Christmas Living Room–the old and the new, especially! All of your Memaw’s things bring back such memories of her, but you use them in new and fresh ways! :)

    I kind of get mixed up with there’s three of you so when I saw lots of color I read more closely and realized who you are!! First I want to say congratulations on the birth of your little Nora Evangeline. What a miracle baby! I’m so very glad you are feeling well and so is Nora. She is beautiful. God is good.
    Secondly I love all your fun decor. The red tool box. The lantern looks great. So much and it ties together so well. I’m impressed you have your house decorated!!!! Blessings this year
