This is The Love Of Home Files #6, focusing on Christmas decor and crafts.
The Christmas Living Room:
You could say that the Christmas living room is where the main holiday decorating typically happens.
If someone buys a Christmas tree, this is the first place they think to put it. It’s where the family hangs out, after all, unless there’s also a den.
Modern Gold, Green & White Living Room:
Don’t you just love those bells over the fireplace? I’ve never seen any that big.
It is a modern living room with cozy touches added.
French Country Christmas:
A gold and white decorated tree with ribbon and garland and elegant ornaments.
Note what’s been added to the back of the dining chairs in the background.
Above are distressed chairs tucked into a long wood table.
Feminine touches, old rimmed goblets and lots of greenery were added.
The Christmas Mantel:
Gold, White & Green Mantel:
Above is a cozy setting with candles glowing, a fire burning, and a mantel decked out in gold.
Greenery was added, which always softens the space and adds texture.
White Village Mantel:
I love the little white ceramic houses. So far I have one that I ordered from Target last year.
I’m tempted to order a set instead of adding what I manage to find here and there.
You can decorate with these cute houses in farmhouse style, cottage style, or any other style.
Green & White Christmas Kitchen:
I love this little green and white decorated space in the kitchen. This corner is beautifully arranged.
This is one of those barely there Christmas spaces. Little is added, but the small amount of Christmas decor that is defines this kitchen corner.
I’d love to have a baking station. But I still haven’t come up with where to add it in my kitchen.
The Christmas Bedroom:
A vintage-style bedside table sits next to a bed with a lovely upholstered headboard. Greenery frames the top of the headboard.
Here there are framed mirrors decorating the wall above the bed with the addition of a wreath.
See how lovely the color black is when added to neutral decor. It elevates the space.
Mini Snow Globes:
These mini snow globes are adorable, with deer and greenery displayed inside. Learn how to make them here.
Lamb’s Ear Trees:
I think you already know how much I love the Lamb’s Ear plant. I’ve searched for it at nurseries for two years in a row now and they’re always sold out.
I still yearn for the big patch of Lamb’s Ear that I had at my old apartment.
These Lamb’s Ear trees bring nature into your Christmas decor.

The Christmas tree lights glow through the amber ornaments in this room.
And you can make them yourself. Check out the instructions here.
There are so many ways to add Christmas decor to your home.
You could use velvet ribbon to tie your packages and add bows to your tree.
Consider adding winter-themed decor that you can keep up after the holidays are over.
Wood decor is very popular and lends an earthy feel. Use wood dough bowls to hold ornaments or strands of beads.
Add various-sized trees to your home, both faux and real. You can line them up for a real statement or scatter them throughout your home.
