French Inspired Romantic Christmas Living Room

Hello friends! I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving, and are ready to really decorate for Christmas now! In the last couple of weeks I did share my Christmas kitchen tour and my entry way. However, until the tree is up, it doesn’t really feel like I’ve decorated!

The tree is the center of the entire experience for me, and sets the tone for all my decorating. And this year, I have a new one. And I have to say, I’m smitten! Before I started decorating this year, I had a bit of a plan in my head. It involved my usual neutral French-inspired decor, but with a twist. I wanted some blush pink, a lot of white, and a flocked tree.

In the past, I had always steered away from the super-white flocked trees. Not that I don’t like them, because I do. I guess because I’m in California, it seemed slightly ridiculous to have a tree that is completely white, haha! My Frosted Fraser Fir, is lightly flocked, so it’s not totally white. It’s just enough white to soften the green, and is the exact look I was going for! 

So, welcome to my Romantic Christmas Living Room. I’m all about the blush pinks, a little bling, and lots of white. The pinks really soften up the whole look, and I love the way it came together….

Previous to being a blogger, I always had a live tree. So when it comes to faux trees, I consider myself pretty particular! Balsam Hill’s trees are so realistic, and very high quality. And I’m seriously in love with the light flocking – it looks so genuine and is just the right touch. I may never go back to a green tree! πŸ˜‰ The white faux fur tree skirt is also from Balsam Hill.

I’ve always added live eucalyptus branches to my garlands and this makes it easy to do early, and I don’t need to keep replacing them! Mercury glass votives, white berries, and pine cones were added for some interest. And I just couldn’t resist the cute sparkly Merry Christmas banner I found! (similar here)

On the coffee table I filled an antique bowl with lots of mercury glass ornaments. I mixed some silver ones I already owned with these gorgeous ombre ones from Balsam Hill.

Mixed in with the mercury glass are some pink Winter Wish ornaments and I think they work really well together. And, I also added the Jeweled Christmas Tree Garland for a little more bling. I love that it’s also mercury glass!

These are a mix of some different ones I’ve found, and I’m in love! They have such an old-fashioned charm about them, I think they’re my new favorites!

  1. I have a Hudson named Emma. She does not want to be left out of anything.
    I am initiating furniture changes. I love French bergiere chairs. I also like the metal and “marble cocktail table which both are not showing in the ”shop here “suggestions. I need to watch my budget too but I need items to be sturdy and long-lasting. I have looked almost everywhere online. Do you have any suggestions please?

  2. Oh my goodness…. soooooo beautiful like a winter wonderland inside !! πŸ™‚ …. love the fireplace and the tree !!!! Thank you for sharing… glad you included Sweet Hudson!!! lolol

    1. Aww thank you so much Terri! That’s so sweet – and we love our sweet Hudson so I’m so glad to hear you like him too:)

  3. Looks beautiful! Love the glass vase with the flowers on the coffee table. Would you be kind to share when can it be purchased? Thanks.

    1. Hi Indiana, and thanks so much for your comment! The glass vase is linked in the “Shop the Post” at the bottom of the post, in the second row. Mine is the largest size of the three. Hope that helps!

    Your Christmas dΓ©cor is gorgeous! The soft pink adds that little something extra! I have never had a flocked tree but this dreamy tree of yours makes me want to try one. I love all the beautiful wrapping paper you chose. The idea of being able to use it for other occasions other than Christmas is a great idea! Merry Christmas to you & yours!

    1. Thank you so much Paula! I’m so glad you enjoyed it. And I was exactly like you! I had never had a flocked tree, but I must tell you, I’m a convert for sure;)

    1. Aww, thanks so much Shelley!! You’re so sweet. Hudson is too funny – he never used to even let me take photos, and now he wants to be in all of them, haha! Looking forward to seeing you decorate now that Thanksgiving is over;)
