Whites and Sparkle in Living Room

Last week I shared half of our Christmas decor in the living room.  Today I'll be sharing the front of the room.  My grain sack chair fits perfectly near the window (see it's transformation here):


Our Advent candles rest on the table inside a wreath of greenery:


These old balusters were adorned with Victorian angel images:

This turned out to be an angel-themed corner, with the mirror above:

I added crepe paper skirts to these angels, inspired by the latest issue of Jeanne D'Arc Living.


We moved the white desk to the front of the room to make room for our Christmas tree in the back:


A vintage-style tree and drawer full of ornaments rest on top:

Some of these vintage ornaments came from my Nesting trip.  The vintage book page of sweet angels was a lovely gift from dear Michelle:



A view toward the front window:

Near the window I simply rested a ruffled tablecloth, our Blessed Mother statue, and some old ornaments & trinkets:


This view upon entry shows an old shelf holding a Christmas village over the couch. 


The latest addition to this shelf is a cute Merry Christmas sign from Curious Sofa:

Well, that about does it for the living room.  Hope you enjoyed the mini tour - I really enjoyed decking this 'hall'!

It is so fresh and clean white but I love the light blue thrown in.
It really looks like a fresh snow has fallen in your house.
Happy Holidays

Wow, you've outdone yourself, Susan! I really love the angel them, and your cute tree and vintage ornaments too. Love your window and how you've decked it out with more angels, it's all just lovely!

Heather said...

Wow...your home is just so SO gorgeous! Do you get sick of me always saying that same old thing? Lol, well its true! Its so crisp and homey and beautiful! I love the golden feather tree! So pretty! I've been looking for gold and silver trees for our bedroom since the walls are painted a deep peacock green, green trees sort of fade into the wall color.
It just all looks so amazing. That advent wreath....too lovely. Your home just shines at Christmas!
