It’s Day 4 of the Caroline House Christmas tour and we’re in the living room today. This room was decorated by Abby Leib and Nancy Norris.
“And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying, ‘Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace among those with whom He is pleased!” Luke 2:13-14
You know I like natural Christmas decor and this bouquet is no exception. The evergreen added to the soft flower arrangement makes it especially wintery without any hokiness.
The evergreen and magnolia leaves continued on surfaces like his one, to frame the nativity and add a sense of festive unity across the room.
The soft white flowers and baby’s breath on this garland look almost like snow! What a clever, wintery idea.
The baby’s breath continues in the tree, which is seriously the best idea. I am tucking this idea away for next year. It’s fun juxtaposed to all the glitter that made it to this year’s tree.
How lovely (and easy to DIY) are these ornaments? Seriously, grab some mod podge, an old hymnal (or print off music from the internet), and some scissors to cut shapes and you’re ready to go.
A few weeks ago some of you saw me raving about the most stunning Pier 1 mantle scarf. And yes, I do know how bougie it sounds to rave about a mantle scarf. Stop judging me. This beading, though, shares a meticulous detailing with that of a snow flake (and the same color scheme), which adds an especially creative nod to the season.
Don’t have a fireplace to hang your stockings on? No problem. These guys looked totally at place in the window.
I really like the hay on the window sill for this wisemen decor. Clever idea for oversized figurines. Unless it’s one of those creepy Mrs. Clause ones that moves every now and then. Get that demon out of your house.
Good. Ok. Glad we’ve covered that important lesson in Christmas decor.
More greenery tucked here and there for festive touches. This painting caught my eye as well. So lovely with a variety of textures, yet a subtle color scheme (you know how I’m into that).
