Christmas 2011: Living Room & Dining Room

I’ve finally snapped some more photos of my Christmas decorations this year.  This year, I was inspired to have more colorful holiday decorations with a bit of a vintage inspired look.  Earlier this week, I shared my living room Christmas tree:colorful-christmas-tree
I loved the glitterly ornaments from this tree so much that I used them in a few other places as well.  My living room coffee table centerpieces has candles on a red charger along with a few red sparkly ornaments.  Simple, but pretty! 

The real vintage touch in this room are these Santa toys from my husband’s family.  I’m not sure what year these are from, but they’ve been around for several decades and I think have such a fun and distinct look.

Over in the dining room, I went a bit more traditional with the décor, but still tried to keep things colorful.  My dining room table centerpiece has a few Christmas cone trees along with some crystal candle holders. 


Instead of candles, I popped some more of the glittery ornaments into the candleholders.  I think it’s a fun look and ties together nicely with the Christmas tree in the adjoining room.


I also strung some garland along the chandelier to add to the festive look.


Here’s a shot of the entire table setting:


I also used ornaments instead of candles in some Winterberry painted glass candle holders that are displayed on a nearby ledge.


I think the glittery baubles add a fun touch and tie everything together nicely. 

So that’s what’s happening in our living room and dining room these days.  I’ll be sharing our family room and main Christmas tree hopefully tomorrow.  What do you think of my look for this year?  Have you changed up your décor for this year?

I am linking up this post at House of Hepworths.
