Neutral Christmas Decor in our Family Room

Here is the Final reveal of our neutral French Country Inspired Family Room.. Natural materials like Burlap, jute and wood are used throughout our Home with touches of red and glittering accents. 
Our Tree is a mix of Handmade and Rustic store bought ornaments
Find out more info on Our Christmas Tree and Tree Skirt HERE
We kept our Holiday Mantel simple with Rustic touches.. The burlap stockings flow perfectly with the tree bases and our ornaments. The RH wooden rocking horse in front of the fireplace adds a touch of whimsy for the season...
Our white sectional features a mix of seasonal throw pillows
This is our simple Coffee table decor.. I added this glittery wooden star ornament inside the lantern.. We kept it very simple this year as our daughter is only 19mths and gets into everything!! Overall this faux book opens up and hides our remote and the lantern she doesn't seem to touch.. not sure why?? so that's why I've been really boring this last few months..
I made these ruffled, red and cream ticking stripe pillows myself to go with the S.Claus pillow cover I bought on this Etsy a few years ago. The Burlap Believe Pillow is available HERE.
I changed up the display on top of our antique radio to a vintage wooden toolbox full of candles and these silver and rope detailed ornaments...I fell in love with these ornaments as they reminded me of nautical glass fishing floats..I used a vintage barrel and filled it with birch branches that I bought from Homesense two Christmas's ago.
I wrapped the base of the banister with a faux garland that I basically stole at a garage sale this summer for $2!! And hung a believe sign that I made from Jute webbing underneath. 
I made these Burlap and metallic silver polka dot lumbar pillows from fabric that I picked up from Joann fabrics online. I also made one for our front hall and stencilled it with the word Believe.. I was going to stencil festive words on these one's too but decided against it.. This way I can use them for more than just Christmas. 
On my side table I displayed a glass cloche with a wooden star wrapped in starry lights from Restoration Hardware. The cloche looked lonely alone, so I styled it with this wooden reindeer... I just found the reindeer at a second hand shop close by my house for $1. I just love inexpensive Holiday finds!! Don't you?
This is the look with the starry lights all lit up.. It looks really pretty at night!
Here is the view of our Kitchen from our Family Room.. I have Christmas displays almost everywhere on our main floor.
Behind the couch I normally have a vintage telescope and a large vintage Map sketch. So I hid those in my storage area and hung up a large wooden sled instead.  I draped the sled in a Noel Burlap banner made by Mom's Etsy Shop
Behind the couch I have a sofa table that I refinished, you can see more on that makeover here. I used 2 galvanized lanterns from our front porch on either side. and used a silver and jute wrapped tray as a centrepiece. The tray holds a vintage wooden toolbox with a galvanized planter, also from our summer porch. 
I filled one side of the planter with fabric candy canes and the other with Natural cinnamon sticks... 
I just love the scent of Cinnamon!!
I placed my pillar candles in my galvanized lanterns but realized my candles seemed too short in comparison so I used these metal tart shells that I had and turned them upside down. It increased the height of the candle then I wrapped the base with 2 different colours of metallic beaded garland.
This is our media unit all jazzed up for winter. You can see the full Built-in unit Makeover HERE. Check out our Detailed Christmas Mantel HERE.
This is my view every morning as I walk down the stairs ;) It Makes me so happy.. For the first time I feel at home and don't have the desire to move!! Let me tell you.. That makes my hubby Happy! ;)
