Its the most wonderful time of the year! I put up my Christmas tree and I am so excited to share it with you! I’ll also be showing my whole colorful and bright living room decor. Let’s get started!
retro rainbow tree
At our last house, we had a 6 foot tree, but our ceilings are so much taller in this house. So I upgraded our tree to a 7 and a half foot white flocked tree from Grandin Road. This tree is so beautiful and full! Its a white tree with white lights and softly flocked. I love it!
The majority of the ornaments are from Grandin Road too! Most of them are from the Merry and Bright collection. They are glass and the prettiest colors! They are glam looking and perfect for my rainbow themed tree. The other literal stars on the tree are the Starbursts– they come in a set of three and are the perfect retro addition!
I put the ornaments on the tree in rainbow order. You kind of have to squint to see it, but isn’t it fun and subtle?! Pink, gold, green, and then blue. I think the tasseled tree skirt is the perfect accent- mostly white with the colorful tassels.
On the chair next to the tree, I added this cute holly jolly pillow. The colors are so fun and the texture is perfect.
Besides my tree, this is my favorite part of my living room Christmas decor! The bottle brush trees are from Hobby Lobby with deer toys from Don’s collection ;). I made the art behind the tree- it says “the best way to spread Christmas cheer is by singing loud for all to hear.” Aka a quote from Elf (the best Christmas movie ever).
The Let it Snow banner was an old West Elm banner. Though its pretty easy to make your own. Below that is a garland from felt balls that I strung. They were a gift, but Michaels has a similar one.
The colorful advent calendar was from Target a few years ago. And the nativity was from a thrift store that my sister bought me. Isn’t this wall so colorful and fun?!
I had fun decorating the media center under the TV! To the right is my Christmas village. I made it from chipboard houses that I painted and decorated. Here’s the instructions. I love that they were really affordable to make and are child friendly. Don plays here all of the time- mostly driving cars through the snow.
On the left side are a few golden nutcrackers. They were from my local grocery store- Smith’s and no longer available. Behind them are some holiday art I helped design with Mixbook. Stay tuned for more information on those!
wood burning stove
The wood burning stove was a little tricky for me. This was my first year decorating this house and I wasn’t sure if I’d do anything here. But I needed a place to display the beautiful tassel stockings, so I decided to go for it!
The garlands are from Michaels and are beyond perfect for this colorful room! I also grabbed the sequin tree there too. The art is also from Mixbook- I’ll have a blog post soon with details on it.
The rainbow felt trees are a super simple DIY (and affordable too!). Here’s the instructions on those-
- cut felt into strips. Then cut the strips into scallop shapes. For 2 trees, you'll cut 1/4 of 8 felt sheets into scallops
- Hot glue the scallops onto the cones. You can vary the colors or do strips of colors to make a rainbow. At the top, you'll need to make a pointed top out of felt since the cones are flat at the top.
- Finish and display!
The one thing I’d love to change in here is my tree topper. I thought I’d do a roundup of my 9 favorites in case you need one too. Which one do you think I should get? I’m loving #1! But #4 is super tempting because its so classic and on a good sale. Let me know what you would get in the comments.
So THAT is my Christmas living room! It was so fun decorating our new house. This space is so happy and bright- exactly how I like it! Have you put up your tree yet? Here’s a little video tour so you can better envision the space! I’m still trying to perfect the whole video thing, but practice makes perfect ;).
