Welcome to our Christmas great room, dressed in lots of classic red, green and white.
I sound like a broken record when I say how much I love our white Ektorp sofa ... it's the perfect backdrop for any seasonal colors you choose!
Our simple mantel echoes the colors around the room ... and shows how much I'm loving plaid this year ... the cute stockings are from the Dollar Store and the banner is from Target ... love inexpensive decor!
Here you'll see one of our Christmas trees, which I decorated in lots of festive colors.
BEFORE: now, over on this wall, here is the "before" ... while I love our buffet, it just seemed to get lost a bit on the long wall ...
AFTER: Ta Da!!! IKEA to rescue again! We filled up the wall with their Billy bookcases and gave them a few additions of molding, knobs and thicker looking shelves to make them look a bit "beefier" and more custom.
We're really enjoying the new addition, and, of course, I love having more shelf space for "stuff!"
This year, garland resting on curtains rods replaced wreaths I usually add to the windows.
And, there ya' have it ... our little Christmas great room "all aglow," Happy Holidays!
