Ah Christmas! We can’t imagine the holidays without a perfectly decorated home, and of course, the best place to start is usually your living room!
If you’re looking for the perfect Christmas decor ideas for living room, this round-up shows you the best we found on Pinterest to transform your home into a winter wonderland this Christmas.
Tips for Christmas Decor Ideas for Living Room
When decoring your living room for Christmas, remember that striking the right balance is the key. If you want your Christmas tree to stand out in the room, all the other decor elements should only emphasize it and not distract from it.
This year, the trend seems to be moving to a more natural direction, with the heavy use of natural pine branches, simple color scheme, and streamlined more basic look.
Before you decorate, it’s very useful to start with a mood board or at least a color scheme you would like to stick to, which will help to bring everything together and make it look more cohesive, without any clashing elements.
Where to start?
Usually, after you’re done with the Christmas tree, the best place to start is your coffee table as that’s one of the main focal elements of the room.
If you have a large TV in the room, that’s one of the other areas to focus on and make it look more festive – all it takes is a pretty garland to give it a Christmas makeover.
With these basic tips in mind, all that’s left is to offer you some inspiration to get started!
