Romantic Christmas Living Room...Part 1

It is cloudy today, but that didn't stop me from taking photos of our decorated living room.  When children are at school and the house is quiet, one has to take advantage of the time no matter what the sun is doing.
So here is our romantically lit living room on a gray December day....and I'm finding it so very peaceful.

A reflection of the room:

This smaller tree holds white, silver and vintage-inspired ornaments:


Had to include one of my smaller lace angel wings....

...as well as a gorgeous script-stamped angel wing from Sandi at Wayside Treasures:

I couldn't resist adding some fun fur yarn to the trim of this white knitted stocking I made, hanging from the galvanized bucket:

More of the fireplace and mantel:




I got this lovely ornament at Nesting (see my previous post to see that gorgeous store).

The far corner...a simple balsam wreath on our old door:


I wanted to add a little 'pretty' to the room over at this console table:

Lovely gifts from another dear friend...I received this adorable book and burlap bag from Sandi of A Cottage Muse.  I added more fun fur yarn around the lovely fabric rose on the bag.

This white tree was perfect for arranging some wallpaper ornaments.  I made the round ones from new and vintage wallpaper, while the glittered-edge ornaments were from sweet Karen of A Shabby Moment In Time

(wallpapered boxes underneath, too!)
The Santos doll gets a festive necklace of vintage garland:

These 'NOEL' ornaments I made last year blended in well on the flea market shelf:

We'll plan to spend some relaxing time in here all season...

I'll be sharing more of the room (in Part 2) later this week. 
Don't forget to enter my Christmas Giveaway - it ends Wednesday night!

Everything looks so beautiful. I love the contrast of the fresh dark greens with the whites. And your galvanized bucket with the lights and greenery is so simple and so wonderful!

Hi, I love your light, white look. I like using the urn for your small tree. I may have to dump the plant out of mine by next Christmas! I have the same metal crown as yours. Was yours a darker color originally? Mine is.

Wow! Your living room is just stunning, Susan! Everything is so gorgeous and dreamy, I don't know where to begin! I love all of the mercury glass, and one of my favorite things (well, they are all favorites, but if I had to narrow it down!) is the petite white tree with the wallpaper and sheet music ornaments. What a wonderful idea! And the covered boxes below are perfection. I still say you need to be in Romantic Homes magazine, or Jeanne d'Arc!!! Enjoy your week:)

Oh my gosh what a BEAUTIFUL home!!! I am totally in LOVE LOVE LOVE with your mirror over the mantle!!! I wish I could decorate in whites... but with dark wood beams throughout our home (not to mention the "mess" that comes with having four kids), it just doesn't happen! ;)
