I’m sticking with my simple Christmas décor this year and decided to use plain red and white in the family room. I decided not use the large custom mantle swag with Della Robbia fruit and huge ribbons/bows again this year. Don’t’ get me wrong…the swag and fru-fru stuff is beautiful but I’m in desperate need for a change.
Here’s what I already had that sparked the decorating change and I just decided to go with it! I bought these cable knit cone trees at Target a couple years ago and have had the silver deer a long time.
I love my two cable knit pattern ceramic vases from Target. So I kept thinking what can I do with cable knit? Voilà! I wanted the family room to be warm and inviting with festive touches that can carry on through winter. So here is my version of a Nordic theme.
I’m crazy about this cute advent garland that I found at TJ Maxx. The little knitted bags are numbered.
This is one of two deer that I spray painted white last year.
I created a vignette on the coffee table using an old painted tool box.
I filled it with candles, fresh greenery, and small packages.
I found this little piece of French pottery used to make cheese. It makes a cool little candle stand.
I found this Santa sack at TJ Maxx.
Pottery Barn has these great cable knit pattern candles in their holiday décor and I couldn’t resist getting them.
I added two throws to the back of the sofa plus the reindeer pillow from PB.
All in all I think my cable knit Nordic theme came together quite nicely in the family room.
I guess today is officially one week until Christmas! All of the planning is done, presents are wrapped and now it’s time to sit back and enjoy!
