Welcome to our humble abode! It’s the day before Christmas Eve and I’m giving you a peek into my favorite room in our townhome and how we decorated it for the holiday season. When it comes to interior decorating, I prefer a neutral color scheme and minimalist decor for a clean overall look.
For the longest time, our pre-lit artificial Christmas tree was covered in red, silver and gold decorations when it was set up in a different room. The “white room,” as I’d like to call it, is my favorite room in the house because it has a ton of natural light coming through the sliding french doors that open up to the front patio, a large window by the fireplace, ivory-painted walls, white leather furniture and a white shag rug that we just recently put in there. Last year was actually the first year we put the tree in the white room and since John and I tend to butt heads when it comes to how we decorate the house, we compromised and made some minor changes to appease one another and our different styles so we’re both happy with the way it turned out.Since we have a purple accent wall and purple drapes, I wanted to incorporate a pop of purple on the Christmas tree with just a handful of purple ornaments to offset the white and silver decor on the tree and throughout room. The faux fur stockings that hang off silver snowflake stocking holders that I bought at Target a couple years ago are just the perfect touch to give the room a slightly cozier feel while I opted for white, gold and silver wrapping paper for the presents under our tree to keep the look consistent. (Pssst! I’m letting you in on a little secret. Kudos to the hubs for doing such a fantastic job wrapping all of the presents under our tree.)All of our Christmas decorations including the ornaments on the tree and wrapping paper are from Hobby Lobby, Michaels or Home Goods. I’ve linked similar options below:
