It’s the most wonderful time of the year and Lorrie Williams of Fluff Interior Design kicked off the holiday season by transforming one homeowner’s family room — with not only Christmas décor — but with a few key living room furniture and accent pieces that brought a whole new look to the space. Watch the video below to hear about it from Lorrie herself.
Holiday Living Room Essentials
We brought in a new two-tone, wide stripe area rug that worked with the color story we wanted to tell for the holidays: neutral white and bright lime green. We updated the homeowner’s existing tables with a fabulous, oversized woven wicker and turned leg coffee table and mixed in a couple of dark walnut chair-side tables — both with a touch of industrial design.
We also replaced the existing lamps with two new pairs of white lamps that complement each other, but don’t match … a set of single-gourd mercury glass lamps and a set of white ceramic lamps with basketweave bases. The bright white drum shades on all four lamps help to create a cohesive feel in the lighting choices.
A Grand Christmas Tree
Before choosing the new tree from Hayneedle, we measured the area where we would be placing the tree. In this room, we have 10’ ceilings, so we chose a 9’ tree to give us room to add a topper without scraping the ceiling. We also measured the diameter of the space to make sure our tree was big enough to fill the area without overpowering it.
Fluff decided to go with a twist on traditional holiday colors by using a lime green and whitewashed white color palette. We purchased ornaments in various sizes and shapes and loaded the tree, top to bottom with lime, silver, and white orbs, finials, candy swirls, and snowflakes.
To give your tree a designer look, be sure to decorate the interior of the tree branches for added depth and interest.
Bright Holiday Delights
We carried the “style story” around the room with tree-matching garland on the banister and mantle and a pair of wreaths hung in front of the windows. We decorated the garland and wreaths with the same white and green ornaments we used on the tree.
Little touches like green and white brush trees, mercury glass candle holders, Christmas pillows and a lush faux-fur chevron throw are scattered throughout the room and give the space a rich, polished look and add a little sparkle to the space, which is never a bad thing when it comes to holiday decorating!
