In our formal living room we have a real tree and this year I knew exactly the tree I wanted. I didn't know at the time what it was called exactly, but when I saw it I knew it was the one. With it's exposed trunk, long branches and gray green needles it was the tree of my dreams. The man that works at our local nursery Green Thumb said it's called a “natural noble fir.”
For the theme in here I wanted a relaxed bohemian vibe. I got almost all my ornaments from Pottery Barn over the years. This year I decided to add in some pastel colored ornaments I found at Target and Anthropologie to give small pops of color that aren’t overwhelming or typical Christmas colors. The garland is fresh and I wish I had tips on how to keep it alive and keep the mess to a minimum, but I don’t. In this case it was defiantly a matter of beauty over function.
In our dining room we carried in the relaxed bohemian feel by adding in white antlers and faux succulents to our live garland runner. The wreaths on the wall I DIY'ed after being inspired by some I saw behind the cash register of a favorite local eatery. The ring wreath is a metal ring I found in the knitting/crochet area of Hobby Lobby. After spray painting it gold I tied on the live garland with gold wire leaving the wire exposed to add some interest to the minimalism of it. The ribbon wreath is a garland doubled up with a ribbon tied to the ends of it.
Our family room is where we spend a lot of time. It really is a family room and in our Christmas trees case our family tree. On it we have a collection of critters that we and the girls have collected over the years. Bears, mice, dogs, cats and squirrels call this tree their home. I love how excited they get over these little critters. We typically find them at Pottery Barn or Homegoods. They are the bottle brush animals and really add great texture to the tree.
This was the first year we did a tree in my oldest daughters room and she is beyond thrilled about it. I decided to make it into a cozy corner to encourage cuddling up with a good book. The color theme in here was light pastel pinks and golds and of course a couple critters from Pottery Barn. The velvet pillows from World Market I tossed around the tree for some texture and my girls love to use them when they lie on their bellies and read on the floor.
