Christmas Great Room with New Arrangement

12.12.2016

Last week I shared the tree and mantel so today it's all about the Christmas decor and the new furniture arrangement in the great room that had to take place in order for the tree to sit by the fireplace.


The view from the breakfast room shows the back of the new look. The sofa faces the fireplace and the sofa table sits behind it.

The vintage lettuce basket sits under the table and is filled with my vintage breadboards and pine cones. After Christmas I will probably just fill it with the breadboards since they had to come down off the wall in the breakfast room. Yes, need to share that room soon with the new look.

The concrete urn had the antlers in it already and I added some pine cones for more texture.





My vintage Belgian bulb basket sits by Mr. Savvy's chair with a fluffy throw for him to grab.

I bought a couple of new pillow covers from Pottery Barn. I love this gold toile cover.

On the other side is this wonderful crewel cover teamed up with a sage green buffalo check pillow I already had.

An old Christmas pillow sits in the leather recliner.

On the table by the chair two Santas stand by a dish of nuts. I guess those should be cookies. 😁

On the bottom shelf the vintage bread basket is filled with colorful ornaments handmade and bought not used on the tree this year.

Leftover ornaments fill a very old and discolored large ironstone bowl as the only addition to the coffee table.

I told y'all I just am not a gold blingy glam type of girl so I added a thick cream throw as the tree skirt in place of the gold sparkly one.

I also tweaked the tree a bit and added my tiny grain sack stockings with red stripes. I think I have six of them.

On the sideboard a bottlebrush wreath hangs on a vintage breadboard and some pewter colored ornaments were added to one of my boxes.

I found these ornaments a few years ago in an antique shop and wish I could find more. They are the prettiest pewter color and the color changes with different light.



The mantel was tweaked with these new flicker flame candles.





 I added this "home" pillow to the bench. Isn't that what we think of at Christmas? Being home or going back home to be with family and friends

What do y'all think about the new arrangement?
I think Mr. Savvy wants it to stay this way. The chair that moved out for this new arrangement will replace the tree when I take it down if this is the way the room stays.

You can refresh your memory of what the old arrangement was here.

  5. Nothing makes a room feel new more than rearranging the furniture and this looks beautiful, Kim! Your couch is so much more noticeable. It all looks gorgeous and I love all your Christmas details. And the tree is perfect next to the fireplace.
    I hope you and Mr. Savvy and Miss Bailey are having a wonderful holiday season!

  14. Love the new arrangement! I really like the couch facing the fire place, and this way you can see better your beautiful table, the one behind the couch. I also thing the room appear brighter without the couch in front of the windows! Very nicely done!! Oh and I love all your Christmas decor!

  19. I like it, it looks like it should be that way...but I do know it is fun to have a change, just for the sake of change, cuz things can feel stale after awhile. I have to say I love those little stockings on the tree. I had a friend who had made tiny mittens, which reminded me of your tiny stockings. So cute.

  20. I like the new arrangement. The problem I run into with using a sofa table is not having electrical plugs in the floor for the lamps.

    1. I'm glad we had one installed when we built the house even though it isn't in the perfect spot, but hidden.

  21. Beautiful look, Kim! I like a sofa table behind a sofa.
    Happy Holidays!

  22. Beautiful Kim! We opted to forgo and electrical plug in our floor for the new house. Had one in our BR house and we never used it but tripped over it all the time. Since I had no idea how the furniture would go in the new house we just left it out. Now I wish we had it!:(
