Natural Christmas Decor in the Sitting Room

I’m all sappy and emotional right now, just coming home from my son’s Christmas program at school.  He is growing up so fast and getting so big.  You can see a pic of him all dressed up in his concert outfit on my instagram (@honeywerehome).  Back at the house, I decked out the master sitting room with some Christmas decorations in a more neutral tone than our pink and red tree.  (Thanks for linking up yesterday! I’m still working my way through the links and will be featuring y’all soon.) 

I brought out my favorite velvet Peace, Love, Joy stockings and hung them just below my dough bowl filled with metallic ornaments.  The whole room has a natural feel with pops of shiny metallics. 
I treated the low bookshelf as a mantle and decorated it with faux snow and objects of varying heights with natural colors.  

I found the nesting boxes at Michaels and they have a magnetic closure and will be perfect for storing ornaments when it’s time to put everything away.  For now, they make a pretty decor element in the room. 

Shiny balls!  I leave the jokes to Hi Sugarplum and Freckles Chic.  They are way wittier than I am.

The wingchair I found at Overstock still needs a mate, but for now is sitting alone in a cozy corner.  The green trellis pillow is an Etsy find and the gold pillow is from Target.  The obmre throw is West Elm and the rug is from Pottery Barn

Side tables are perfect for creating a vignette with a small Ikat bowl of ornaments, a couple of books and this Hobby Lobby reindeer.
On the coffee table, I placed a wreath, filled the center with another piece of faux greenery, a couple more pinecones, and a white candle.  Easy centerpiece that would be pretty on a dining table too in a smaller scale. 
It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas!  
Thank you SO MUCH for planting a tree this season!  All you have to do is CLICK HERE  to Like New Life Energy on Facebook.    Read more here.  We have planted 390 408 450 488 511 trees and our goal is 1,000 by December 23.  I’d love to hear if you “liked” so I can thank you by name. 
I have a Stella & Dot GIVEAWAY you don’t want to miss on Monday!  And if you want to do some shopping over the weekend, you can visit my online Stella & Dot store.  I have been too busy to host trunk shows lately, but I’m still loving their jewelry! Our preschool teachers are getting this, this, and this for Christmas this year along with Starbuck’s giftcards (by popular request!).
