My Christmas Decorating-Family Room


In my family room I use a gold and silver color scheme. The tree is filled with vintage ornaments collected on eBay and lots of gold and silver "picks" from Michael's. I think this is an elegant and sophisticated look that works well with many room color schemes. I personally greatly prefer this to blue and white which is so in vogue right now that I find to be cold. The tulipieres on the mantel will be filled with red or white tulips when I venture out to Costco this afternoon. Thanks to everyone for their supportive comments and emails regarding my burglary Monday. Still sorting things out of course.

Love your tree! And, happy to know that you sourced Michael's for some of the picks. I was in there yesterday wondering, would any "real" decorator use things here or no? ;-)

Good luck sorting everything out!

I think your decorations for your family room are my favorite yet -- that gold & silver tree is a real stunner!

Merry Christmas, Beth!

It's so luminous and warm, it probably does WONDERS for the complexion when you sit next to it. I would love to see it with candlelight, I bet it would look like a 24 k gilded evergreen! Lauren
