It's Christmas Time {Acorn Cottage: Living Room}

 Come on in to the Acorn Cottage dressed in her holiday splendor. I am a traditionalist, so I always use red, green, gold, and silver to compliment my seasonal decor. Each year I try and add and change up a few things here and there, but for the most part my decor stays similar from year to year. I love to walk into my home during the month of December. Christmas decorations have always put me in such a great mood.

Come on in... take a mint or two!

The front table features some of my favorite glittered deer and an arrangement of red berries, conifer branches, and glittered sticks. The front table also holds a favorite seasonal candle.

In the window, a blue-colored demijohn sits on a lucite pedestal. Each window features a gold bay leaf wreath hung by a plaid ribbon.

The stockings are hung on the door handles to the sunroom. Each stocking was purchased many years ago from Ballard Designs. Each features a wooden R and J so that Santa knows who to leave a special gift for.

Cedar greens and glittered ornaments hang from the top of the secretary. My favorite Holiday Nest candle, a framed NYC photo of J and I, a couple dapper deer, and seasonal reads fill the desk area. I also love the hand painted ornament of the Acorn Cottage that hangs from the secretary key, and the napkins by August Morgan.

On the coffee table, an old-fashioned Santa, a Revere pewter bowl corrals vintage ornaments, and a candle all sit in a gold tray.

On the hutch, cedar garlands drape the top as two new silvered wreaths hang in the door. The wreaths are a new purchase from Red Onion of Baton Rouge

On the side sofa table, a collection of plaid balls lay on a bed of cedar.

And the tree..... 

The magic of the holiday season is alive and well at the Acorn Cottage.

Merry Christmas, y'all!
