Our Christmas Living Room

This year, I banished all my reds {even in my holiday decor}. I guess I wanted to make my couch feel 'welcome' {if that's a proper saying}. For my color theme, I chose golds, bronzes and a tidge of green. I did try some white, and wasn't too thrilled with how it looked, so that all went out. 

I already posted about my mantle, with more detailed photos. In regards to the 'Parisian' twist to our mantle decor, my girls and I {thanks to me, I know} are on a huge Eiffel Tower kick. I am pretty sure it's legit, because we've been obsessed for well over a year now, and even my little one spots it out when ever {and where ever} she sees one. We were pretty excited to find the little eiffel tower statue that's sitting on the mantle {about 2 months ago} from Ross for 6.99!!

Since 're decorating' isn't a priority in our budget this year, I was proud to say I didn't spend a dime to decorate this room this year! Everything you see was pulled out of tubs, boxes, closets, off shelves, 'borrowed from another spot in the house'. 

I am in the process of 'creating' something for the dining room, I was stumped on what to do in there {with the black and white curtains} and I was super excited to find this for inspiration!!

We'll see how it pulls off!
