Christmas Decor in the Sitting Room

Hallelujah I’m almost done with my Christmas shopping- just a couple more things to pick up and  it’s all done!  Nothing like only having two days to spare! And, I have what I think is a perfect gift for my parents!  That feels good.  Over the weekend, I added some finishing Christmas decor touches to the sitting room just off our master bedroom.  It only takes a few decorative touches to make the little space feel festive.
I started with our pair of tall Nutcrackers from Hobby Lobby and a red bell wreath on the starburst mirror.  Then added in little touches here and there.  The tie on the wreath is hanging from that middle starburst needle.  I’ve gotten a lot of questions about that ottoman after I shared it on my Instagram.  It’s this one.


I pulled out our red Christmas pillows (solid one from Pottery Barn and the reindeer from Target) and found the new Merry & Bright one also at Target this year.


One of James’ red lamps was brought in and sits along the Hobby Lobby Merry Christmas sign.  The glass jar contains faux snow and greenery and a pretty white candle.


I always love how a big container of ornaments look.  And it couldn’t be easier to just pull out a color combination you like and pile them in.

I’m still so happy with these chairs from Overstock. I got them for $339.99, but looks like they are over $400 now. Maybe they’ll go on sale again??


This is definitely a nice spot to kick off your shoes and relax.  By the way, I’m obsessed with these red heels I just got on sale! They come in dark blue, leopard and snake too. 😉


So, three days left till Christmas, are you ready?!

    The sitting area looks so inviting and festive. We have a Bissell cleaner, actually Elie has it now as she has more carpet and 3 pups that drag in dirt. Works like a charm. It will be a blessing to your parents to have the help in cleaning. Nothing like a fresh clean home to start the Nee Year, and I know it will ease your sweet mom's load.

    I love the sitting area… especially with those red high heels. I hope to wrap up my Christmas shopping tomorrow and then lay low on Wednesday.

    I enjoy reading your blog so much . Wonderful decorating ideas. I rented a bissell carpet cleaner and loved it. Worked great. I would love to own one. We have 6 cats that sometimes , well you know, have accidents and hair balls. Must look into buying one.

    The room looks so festive; I especially love those blue ornaments. And the shoes…very merry with that gold tip, lol. I could get lost in their shoe department.
