30+ Fabulous Christmas decorated living rooms to inspire


Enchanted by the magic of Christmas, bloggers across the blogosphere decorate their homes for the holidays and we have showcased a collection of our favorites here. The living room is the most important room in your home to focus your decorating inspirations on. It is the heart of the home when it comes to holiday gathering with friends and family, next to the kitchen of course. It is typically where you place your tree, real or faux and where your fireplace is located, which needs to be decked out for Santa! Your space should be warm and inviting, a place where you can enjoy entertaining and relaxing.

You should consider all aspects of your living room when it comes to decorating. A place to put your tree where it can be the star of the room, but not be in a high traffic area. You may even need to consider moving furniture for the placement of your tree. You can decorate your fireplace, mantel, windows and even your walls. Your limit is your imagination and whether you wish for minimal or Christmas crazy! Have a look below for some amazing ideas to help you get started.

5. Mantel Decor: The fireplace above is an excellent example of decorating your mantel, which can be the focal point of your living room. If you opt out of decorating a tree, then go all out on your mantel decor! Do not compete, keep it simple if your tree is nearby. Decorate with Christmas lights, garland, stockings, candles, small trees, pinecones, berries, faux snow, ribbon, glass canisters filled with lights and even some signage. Another idea would be to hang ornaments off your garland or even from your mantel. Hang a wreath above your mantel. The firebox could have candles or faux wood placed inside. Don’t forget to decorate the sides of your fireplace with lanterns and other holiday decor.
