Simple Ways I Added Christmas to the Foyer and Sitting Room

12.01.2017

Can y'all believe it is December 1st? At least most of my Christmas decorating is done and today I'm sharing some simple ways I added Christmas to the foyer and sitting room. I prefer not to move things out to add Christmas decor, but I did move some things around.



I grabbed my French tian bowl from the great room and filled it with pine cones, antler sheds and ornaments.

The bowl sits on a faux white pine wreath to add some greenery and more texture.

Candles are always good to use. I will be lighting the candles in the glass jars when my family comes over on Christmas eve for dinner. The jars were filled with epsom salt to look like snow.

Stockings are not just for mantels so why not hang one off a knob or handle.

Simple additions were added in the sitting room, too. I set a boxwood wreath on top of the hutch.

In keeping with my French country style I created a vignette on this table using a demi john, Santos cage doll and an ironstone plate filled with tiny sheep.



A green and white plate holds some vintage bottle brush trees.

Christmas pillows are one of the easiest ways to add Christmas around the house. I like to use pillows that work with the room they are placed in. The red stitching goes will with the red in the rug.



I found this deer and cabin in the woods pillow at HomeGoods.

Green majolica plates were added to the hutch and another odd shaped bottle brush tree was used.


I hope these ideas gave you some inspiration for your own home.

Have a fabulous weekend!

  7. Beautiful foyer Kim...love the candlesticks as they truly make any area the star! Simply placing a wreath on the boot forms and the plate of sheep are just perfect. Just the right amount of wonderful touches of Christmas. Love the sneak peek of the tree in the background!

  8. I'm still working on Christmas decor here. I'm not as motivated as I once was, but it will get done. I have lots of Christmas pillows. They are usually the only seasonal touch in the bedrooms. Love the woodland pillow you found.

  11. I always love your pictures, you are very talented and have great taste. I don't like all the matchy new looking decor in some on the homes. You have a way of making things look like they belong, very natural and not junky cluttered. And those sheep! My hunt starts today....
