I’m sure I’m not the only one, but I’ve been a busy little beaver and have hardly had a moment to write a post this month! But I couldn’t let Christmas arrive without sharing a little house tour of my seasonal decor.
Let’s see if you can figure out what’s missing from my holiday decor – pay close attention!
This marks the third year of our Christmas tree forest – basically, a cluster of three smaller trees in the entry of the house rather than the larger one.
Most of the ornaments on the smallest of the three trees are pink and gold.
I moved some of my furniture around to create yet another seating arrangement in the living room. The combinations are endless, I tell you!
My blue tufted sofa from Merridian Home Furnishings goes with anything and everything. Pillows, furry throw, and lamps from Home Goods.
If you don’t follow me on Facebook (and you should!), you may not know that I scored a gorgeous vintage velvet sofa from an estate sale a couple of weeks ago. It’s going to provide a lot more seating for the holiday parties I am planning over the next few weeks! And you gotta check out the stunning new rug I got to complete the new look in my sunroom. My previous rug was about 70 years old – a vintage wool rug I bought at an estate sale 15 years ago – and it was showing some bald spots from many years of wear and tear.

I hope you all have a sweet and peaceful holiday with your family and friends!
Did you figure out what’s missing from my Christmas decor? Leave me a comment below if you have a guess!
Beautiful! The only thing I can think of as “missing” is Santa Claus?
True, you don’t see any Santas in the pics – but I do have them on one of the trees! Thanks for playing 😉
Looks fantastic – I do love the little bambi and your buttoned sofa!
Where are the Christmas cards displayed?
No photos posted of that – but I have them in a large dough bowl in my kitchen. The kids like to go through them while they are sitting at the kitchen table 🙂
The cards are in the kitchen – sorry, no photos!
Nothing red! And, no Santa Claus decor. Looks lovely!
I love everything in the sun room Kristie, especially the rug and sofa. Blue is my favorite color so it’s all easy for me to like/love. I also love the blue sofa in your living room.
Thank you so much, Lynn! Merry Christmas to you 🙂
I do not see your beautiful deer head.
Oh, it’s still there, Cilla! But sometimes it makes people angry 😉
I love the couch and rug! Everything looks beautiful.
I have no clue what is missing.
Red and green???
I do not see a naviity scene in these pictures nor do I spy Christmas stockings hung by the fireplace!
I have multiple nativity scenes – several small ones in the Christmas trees and one on the entry table. Sorry, they don’t show up in the photos, do they?
I do have several nativity scenes, unfortunately they don’t show in the photos. Good try!
So beautiful! I just love the way you use color. Merry Christmas. 😉
Thank you, Stacey, and Merry Christmas to you!
I don’t see any red and green
Lovely! But where are the stockings?
They are hanging on the sconces on either side of the entry – I can’t put nails in the marble fireplace 😉
Red and green! It’s all beautiful!
I’m guessing the traditional red and green!! Your decorations are so pretty! Love your style. Merry Christmas!
I visited with you at that estate sale and am so glad to see that you got the sofa! What a find! Did you make it to Whites Merchantile at 12South?
No red and green and no stockings hung by the chimney with care. The tree forest is very pretty.
Beautiful job Kristie. I LOVE your new sofa!!
Merry Christmas my friend!! xo
Hello there. Very pretty vintage style home. Love the triple trees in front hall…I am relatively new to your blog although I did subscribe to several of your color videos. I also read your post re: your house tour/ paint colors. Great job on creating color flow in first floor rooms…certainly using one rooms wall color as trim or ceiling in an adjoining room is one way of creating flow. I too am a big fan of colored ceilings….1/2 my house is done that way. Anyway As a certified color consultant I would humbly offer one suggestion: the lovely gray blue sofa and rug in living room seems to clash w wall color Prescott Green. And not really relate to what’s in the space. I would suggest considering a pale gray w blue undertone such as BM Pearl River or Wickham Gray or A grayed blue like Yarmouth Blue. I realize this throws a monkey wrench in the adjoining rooms where the trim is the green color. Please don’t take my comment personally. I find that in my own home I can sometimes be blind due to emotional attachment. Thus a second opinion is called for. Merry Christmas….ps: lovely N

Your living room has never looked better, perfect seating arrangement. Have a wonderful holiday with your loved ones, and thanks for all the inspiration this year.
This post is a little late, since my life has been crazy busy with my fathers recent death. But I did want to let you know that I have always had a blue themed Christmas in the living room since red clashes with it. I use silver, white, green and gold as the other complementary colors. I do not tire of the theme, but I do a red and green theme in the family room so my treasured ornaments don’t go unused. Kristie, your home is beautiful and I love your three different trees you have in the entry. Your home has evolved into a beautiful comfortable place to live and enjoy. Thank you for this wonderful blog and all of the guidance and knowledge you have shared with your followers and students. Wishing you joy, happiness and good health for you and your family this year!
Thank you so much, Mary! I’m so sorry to hear about recent loss. I lost my father seven years ago and know how difficult it can be to lose a parent. Much love and peace to you in the new year, Mary.
Thank you my dear, for the condolences. My dad had a very long full life for which we are grateful and it makes it easier to say goodbye. Best wishes to you too.
