Your living room is the place where you gather, recharge, and connect with those you love, and decorating it for Christmas is the perfect way to get in the holiday spirit. Looking for some inspiration? We’ve rounded up our favorite Christmas living room decorating ideas to help you decide how to dress your space up for the season.
Modern Holiday Living Room
Gray and cream bring a classic, calming vibe in this space, and a hint of red and green makes it feel decidedly Christmas. Simple touches like a bowl of glittery ornaments adds to the holiday magic.
Coastal Christmas Living Room
What better way to relax over the holidays than in a room full of laid-back coastal style? Ornaments and string lights combine with traditional coastal elements, such as rattan, mudcloth, and shells, all in a blue and white color palette that’s as crisp as the ocean waves.
Festive Holiday Living Room
Monochrome spaces are super chic, and feel particularly of-the-moment during the holiday season. Layer red on red for a rich, dramatic room, and finish with gold décor and textured upholstery to round out the look.
Farmhouse Christmas Living Room
Farmhouse style is a holiday favorite because it lends itself well to the cozy comforts of the season. Stick to a fairly neutral color palette and lean into a mix of patterns and textures, such as stripes, plaid, and burlap or jute. A simple tree, garland, and string lights are all it takes to add Christmas cheer.
Holiday Lodge Living Room
Set the mood with flocked greenery, buffalo plaid, and nature-inspired décor. Antlers, driftwood, berries, and burlap, along with cabin-inspired wall art, create a space that’s reminiscent of the mountains, even if you live in the city.
Rustic Luxe Holiday Living Room
Leather and faux fur elevate this space, and clean lines keep it so chic. Get the look in your room with lush and geometric pillows, simple garland, a few candles, and classic gold ornaments.
Pastel Holiday Living Room
Pastel tones keep it soft and cozy. This space proves you don’t have to go big with Christmas décor to make an impact. Small, retro trees, garland, and snowflake cutouts are all this living room needs.
Glamorous Christmas Living Room
The holidays are an ideal time to go glam because the look carries itself well into New Year’s Eve, too. Mix metallics, velvet, faux fur, and lights for a celebratory space that’s ultra luxe.
Natural Holiday Living Room
Invite the outdoors in this holiday season. We love the bare tree in this space and the inclusion of other house plants. Emerald green velvet chairs add rich texture, while birch candle holders and pine cones bring organic appeal.
Simple Christmas Living Room
When it comes to Christmas décor, there’s no need to go overboard. Minimalist rooms feel clean and purposeful no matter the time of year. Opt for a slim tree, simple ornaments, white candles, and unfussy silver accents.
White Christmas Living Room
Even when there’s no snow outside, you can create a white Christmas with your living room décor. Mix white with silver, gold, and plenty of twinkling lights to create a magical space.
Classic Americana Holiday Living Room
You can’t go wrong with classic holiday colors. Red, white, blue, and green all come together with simple wood and leather furnishings for classic Americana style. Toss in some plaid pillows to soften the look.
Elegant Gold & Green Holiday Living Room
Play up formal furniture with white and green pillows in bold patterns. Gold décor, ornaments, and gift wrap add a touch of opulence, and a fluffy rug makes this living room feel plush yet welcoming.
Rustic Cabin Holiday Living Room
We love that this living room feels like it’s right out of the woods. Choose trees and garland with natural-looking needles and look for décor that nods to the great outdoors.
Christmas Wonderland Living Room
A tree packed with ornaments feels so festive, and we love the idea of hanging wreaths in front of windows. Shades of green mixed with white and red create an oh-so-festive feel the whole family will love.
Deciding how to decorate your living room for Christmas should be as fun as the holiday itself. Pick and choose the elements of the ideas you love, and transform your space for the season.
