Today I’m sharing my family room decorated for Christmas with a Scandinavian-inspired theme. A special thanks to HomeGoods for sponsoring this post and giving me the opportunity to freshen this space with a few pretty holiday decorations.
Today marks week 3 in the Seasons of Home Holiday Decor Series hosted by Kristen of Ella Claire Blog.
If you missed week 1, we shared our kitchens here.
If you missed 2, we shared our tablescapes here.
With a photoshoot last Friday for Refresh Magazine (BHG Special Interest Publication), I was left for very little time to spruce things up and take pictures on Saturday, but I just managed. I went quite simple and started doubting how it was all coming together– I love the traditional red, white, and pops of green this year, but I was afraid it would end up looking boring on camera. If really is so cozy and inviting in person, so I apologize if I wasn’t able to capture it.
I wanted to do a lot of tone-on-tone with the whites and creams, and really accentuate the textures in the room.
The photoshoot forced me to move the piano into the family room and I must say, I’m not mad about it! Bruno saw how perfectly it fits here and told me we should definitely keep it here for awhile.
I moved the furniture back to this L arrangement because it works best with that tree in the corner.
Some of the fun things I found at HomeGoods were a variety of mercury glass ornaments. The wooden mitten ornaments came from HomeGoods last year and they were actually on a string of lights, but I cut them off the string so I could hang them individually.
I also picked up this new rug from HomeGoods. It was large and a great price for being wood and having this lovely neutral tone and texture.
I also grabbed a new tree skirt. Last year I wrapped all sorts of empty boxes so I could have the appearance of gifts under the tree. This year, I’m happy with just the tree skirt.
This fair-isle throw I got at HomeGoods a few years ago but I’ve seen them again last year and this year.
My tree is super simple compared to everyone else’s tree, but I don’t mind. It’s pretty and classic. Just a few ornaments, and that pretty red berry garland (found them at Target).
I hope you enjoyed this little tour of my Scandinavian-inspired Christmas family room!
