Our family room Christmas decorations…

I’m so honored to join incredibly talented friends for our Seasons of Home series. I tend to take a slow, room by room approach to decorating for the holidays and our weekly series embraces that. These lovely ladies inspire me and give me the little nudge I need at times.

Their beautifully decorated spaces leave me in awe. Sometimes I wonder, “am I enough.” I tend to take a more understated approach both out of necessity of time, but also lifestyle. I realized that’s what makes this series so special – you can integrate ideas big and small into your home for the holidays. We each take a different approach to decorating but have similar design aesthetics. I hope you enjoy a peek into our homes for the holiday. Be sure to follow the links at the bottom of this post for beautiful family room Christmas decorating ideas!

I sneak Christmas decorating into little moments throughout the day – while the kids are eating breakfast or working on their latest art project. I repotted these pretty paperwhites Sunday evening into a pot and a blue and white floral bowl. I stagger planting paperwhites so we can enjoy them December and January, raising bulbs in the garage until they have a few inches on them.

The addition of candle light this time of year makes a room feel magical. I dropped in one of my favorite scented candles in to a vase that’s a family room staple and added a cozy throw to warm up the room for the season.

It’s still a bit early for fresh greens in St. Louis, but more are becoming available daily. I was able to find a tree Sunday afternoon and will be updating it this afternoon adding more clip on candles, a few ornaments and starry string lights. Simple and seasonal.

  6. Your style is so elegant! It’s so refreshing to see your “less is more” look, especially when it seems like everyone else is at the other end of the spectrum.

    • Thank you, Lauren! I truly appreciate it! Sometimes it feels like it’s not enough, but for my family and lifestyle it’s perfect. Hope you enjoy a beautiful holiday season!
