I’m breaking down the Holiday Decor in another room of our home today. Yesterday I posted about our Family Room and today’s post is focused on the Living Room. I added some additional greenery to this room recently. During Hurricane Sandy, one of our Cedar trees was uprooted. I had hoped we could save it, but the insurance adjuster just told us that it’s going to have to be removed in order to fix the fence. Since it can’t be saved, I decided I might as well cut off as many branches as I want, to use in our decor.
Here you can see the poor tree, and the fence that it damaged. I’m so sad to loose this tree, since it blocks the view of our neighbor’s deck when we are on the patio. I guess we’ll plant a new one in the Spring.
This is an updated photo of our living room. A bit brighter than the photos I took last week when it was pouring rain.

I also glittered up some Pine Cones this year! I love the contrast of the sparkle with the dark woody tones of the cones. I’ll be posting that tutorial soon. Or at least I hope so anyway!
I love this wreath that I got at TJ Maxx, one of my new favorite places to shop, now that we finally have one! I was able to get two of these, the last two, and I hung them on the big Iron Mirrors that I have on either side of the sofa. I love how the green leaves are brushed slightly with gold, so pretty!
This white chair was in my family room and I moved it in here to make room for our tree… which means I had to move the little tufted chairs against the wall, to make from for the white chair! Anyway, it all worked out perfectly and I’m kind of really liking this set up.
I lucked out and found a second pre-lit Flocked Tree at Lucketts! It was a great price and the exact size that I wanted for this room. I love how it fits perfectly in my Antique Concrete Urn!
I snagged two sets of these feathered Angel Wings at Lucketts too, they were in my friend Jennifer’s space and she gave me a great deal on them. They are glittered too, which adds some nice extra sparkle on the far wall.
I placed my White Wire Brush Trees on the Antique Secretary that belonged to my Grandparents. You can find the Tutorial for the Trees HERE.
Well that’s it for this room! I’ll be posting a few more projects this week and then I will continue with the final two rooms after that. Thanks so much for stopping by!
