Deck the Halls | A fancy, but not shmancy Christmas style

Black Gold and White Christmas Decor
Well it’s the weekend before Christmas, what do you say I finally share what my house has been looking like for a couple weeks. 

Decorating for Christmas is always fun… but can be a LOT of work.  It’s a complete transformation of your home.  We store all our Christmas décor in boxes up in the attic and when it was time to bring it all down that was a LOT of up and down trips I had to make by myself.

Last year I concentrated on the outside a lot more, but this year I kept it pretty simple.  Typically I use silver, white and gold as my “staple” Christmas colors and then I add in a fun accent color. In previous years I’ve done red, purple, blue and then this year I decided to do black.  I think by far --- this year has been my favorite.

The colors have such a modern vibe to them I almost feel like I need a white deer head with antlers sticking out of that wreath.

I just love how a lit up Christmas tree makes you feel.  All is calm, all is right.

So little secret about me… I HATE wrapping presents. Hate it. I’m not sure what it is about it but I’ve never enjoyed it.  But I suck it up every year Winking smile

Beyond the couch and tree area, I decorated above our media cabinet.  This is actually usually a hard area to fill as it’s the tallest point in the living room, but you can see it first thing walking into our home. 

I do it almost every year – but filling buckets and vases with an assortment of ornaments = beautiful and EASY decorating.  My kinda style.

Back to the tree.

I loved the idea of topping the tree with a big sparkly bow instead of the typical star.  That idea is actually what spawned the style of decorating I did.

I also decorated the front entryway, but because of the time of day that area sees light I’ve been unable to take any pictures.  I hope to also squeeze in another post before Christmas of décor I have up on the other side of the living room once I finish a project I’m trying to DIY. 
Again – if you follow me on Instagram you’ll always know what I’m up too and you’ll have seen the sneak peek’s of the sign I’ll be making!
