Welcome to the “12 Days Of Holiday Homes” hosted by my friends 11 Magnolia Lane & Evolution Of Style! We are so glad you’re participating in our tour, as we share our holiday homes with you. A huge “thank you” if you’re new here and coming from Dixie Delights. I am excited to share with you today my Whimsical Glam Christmas Living Room In Pastels.
First, did you see my first Christmas tree and entry decorated in mixed metals?
Make sure to stop by that first tour if you haven’t already.
Moving into the living room, last week I shared our whimsical glam mantel to give you a little taste of the theme in here.
With the new Nutcracker Movie being released this year, and having 2 young children who still love the magic of Christmas, I was inspired to bring some fun “creatures” into our living room and bring a touch of whimsy. These crowned swans were just the thing I had imagined!
I also shared our cozy glam hot cocoa bar station on the other side of the living room.
Adding one of my favorite deer heads that I’ve had for several years, and glamming her up a bit, was another perfect touch of whimsy.
Whimsical Glam Flocked Christmas Tree In Pastels
Tree #2! Last year the tree in here was touching the ceiling and 1 1/2 feet wider and very full but it just swallowed this room.
This year I wanted a slimmer tree so that I wouldn’t have to move the furniture around.
I also wanted a tree that was less full so that more light could pass through and also be able to tuck these soft maribou feather boas into it to look like soft fallen snow. I took each boa, folded it over and “doubled up” to make them look fuller and just tucked them in and out of the branches as if snow had just fallen there. I think I used 9 total!
I also have a pretty little tutorial on that middle ornament.
Hobby Lobby had all these pretty dusty blue and blush pink poinsettia stems this year and I was so thrilled! I grabbed all of my sparkly white stems and ornaments to cover the tree and then just added small touches of the blue and blush.
All of my gifts always coordinate with my tree. I’ve found such pretty wrapping papers and gift bags at HomeGoods and Target again this year, and the gift boxes as well. I ordered pretty velvet ribbons from Etsy.
Tip: Don’t be afraid to add small Christmas decor items and stems around your gifts to create an even more beautiful look around your tree.
I love the soft look of this tree as the sun shines through and gives that glow.
I spent hours online looking for dusty blue velvet throw pillows and after having no success, I walked into HomeGoods one day and found these pretty ones with snowflake motifs.
Also there were these blush pink faux fur throw pillows that were more on the peachy side and less on the mauve side, just as I wanted.
On my coffee table I placed some faux fur beneath my “angel tray”. This year I added all 3 of my angels to this pretty tray, along with one of my pretty deers and this bowl of ornaments.
I usually place my ornaments in a different pedestal bowl but I found this sparkly bowl at ZGallerie this year and knew it would be perfect. You can use double-sided satin or velvet ribbon to tie on the ends for extra elegance.
Stay tuned because tomorrow I’ll be sharing my whimsical kitchen with you and it will be a treat! Here’s a small teeny tiny peek.
