16 Delightful Christmas Living Rooms To Leave You Spellbound

According to my personal observation, the living room, along with the kitchen, is the most preferred space for festive gatherings with friends and family around Christmas time.

So this year don’t stop at the Christmas tree (and a bunch of garlands) but broaden the decor through the whole living room space instead. Make it cheerful and welcoming by displaying your own style and taste.  😉

Often the best place to begin decorating your dream Christmas living room is the natural centerpiece of the living room area.

In this case, the fireplace acts as a natural base and is brought to the forefront thanks to a beautifully decorated Christmas tree, shimmery elements, festive greenery and a pinecones-accented garland across the mantel.

6. Bring Industrial Charm to a Room with Metallic Ornaments

Most of the design ideas for elegant Christmas living rooms have some metallic decorations for a look that is both festive and smooth.

Besides, the metallic wallpaper in the alcoves is an ideal option for neutral homes—the all-year-round decor will look like it was made especially for your Christmas living room.

7. Turn Your Living Room into a Winter Wonderland

Even though the traditional red-and-green scheme has led the Christmas living rooms, this rustic style sitting room proves that your existing interior design and color palette can inspire the most charming of holiday themes.

Wood, white, gold, and gray combine together in both ornamental and everyday vignettes for a design that feels both unpretentious and stylish.

8. Maximize Space in Small Living Room with a Tiny Tree
