This Christmas, I told myself that I was going to “take it easy” on our own decor because I worked so hard at decorating this heritage home for Homes for the Holidays last month. I thought I’d put up a little greenery and call it a day, but once I started decorating our living room last week… I just couldn’t stop. Oops. I had to purchase a lot of new decor including a new Christmas tree, and then I spotted some gorgeous pink velvet ribbon, and then things just spiraled downwards (or upwards?) from there.

Welcome to our Christmas living room.

We live in a home we built ourselves in 2013, and I recently gave our living room a bit of a makeover. You can read all about that right here (as well as all about our new furniture from The Brick).

I’ve always loved how pink looks with grey, so when I came across some pink velvet ribbon with a gold backing at Canadian Tire, it was really my inspiration for adding pink into our Christmas decor this year. I know it’s not your typical holiday colour, but pair it with some twinkle lights and warm metallics, and I think it looks very festive!

I bought this tree from Costco Canada online (unfortunately I think I must have bought the last one because they’re all sold out), and I love its flocking. I decorated it with the pink velvet ribbon, some metallic striped ribbon, and then a variety of gold, copper and white ornaments from Canadian Tire and my stash. I also put some greenery & white berry picks in the tree from Michaels and Canadian Tire.

On our mantel, I started by draping a live greenery garland from Costco over the mantel, and then layering it with a faux eucalyptus garland from Ikea. I added some candlesticks, candles, twinkle lights, and some glittery gold stocking holders from HomeSense. I also hung these handmade stockings on the mantel, and tied some of the pink ribbon around a couple of them.

I also wrapped some faux greenery garlands from Michaels around our chandelier, and draped the furniture with pillows and throws in soft pinks and whites. Lots of furry textures make the space feel cozy and warm.

On the left side of our fireplace, I’ve displayed my DIY mini paper houses advent calender, and it’s been a huge hit! You can find the DIY for that right here. The “Amazing Grace” and “Do All Things with Love” wooden signs in our living room were given to us by William Rae Designs, and you can get 15% you own purchase by using my code THEDIYMOMMY15.
