Our Christmas Living Room- Part 2

Hello friends! I'm back with the second half of the Christmas living room tour. If you missed the first half, click here. This year this side of the room was so much fun to decorate. I now have a much bigger table in the corner to add festive touches to, as well as several new pieces of decor. I had a blast styling it all!

Here you can see I kept the large 8-pane window on the farmhouse table, and just decorated around it. It adds such height and character to the room.

How many pieces of architectural salvage can you put on one wall? I'm sure I'll reach the limit one day, but not just yet!

I bought these mercury glass pieces at Nell Hill's in September and saved them for Christmas. I simply piled them on a vintage silver cake plate with lots of fresh greenery underneath for depth and color. Mercury glass is my absolute favorite at Christmas!

I use it on our tree as well, as most of our ornaments are silver or mercury glass.

If you'd like to make your own silhouette ornaments, you can read a tutorial from last year here. Or they are available for sale at The Cottage Collective : )

I had so much fun making this evergreen arrangement in a vintage cast iron urn. I used this photo as my inspiration and went from there. First I added the curly willow I already had, followed by fresh greens from the yard, then evergreen picks from Nell Hill's, topped off with silver balls tucked into the branches. It's one of my favorite touches this year!

My other favorite decoration? Still this little grapevine sleigh from the Target dollar bin...go figure!

Our little side table got a dose of these darling zinc Christmas trees that Matt's aunt and uncle sent us last year. Love them!

Hope you enjoyed our little Christmas living room! This will probably be the last Christmas we are in our itty bitty first apartment, as we're hoping to begin looking for a house this spring. But we'll enjoy being tucked in here for one more holiday season! Thank you for coming by!
