I absolutely love the Teakwood bowl on the ottoman filled with ornaments and pinecones. Another thing from Home Decorators Collection... and something I can definitely use year round!I kept the mantel pretty simple this year. Just the Magnolia leaves and a couple large and in charge Nutcrackers from the massive collection we have been given over the years from my Mother in Law. The Birch Log Bases are new from HDC and I know they will be sticking around all year. This is the view of the foyer from the living room couch. I love how the tree connects the two rooms. Is it weird that I am already sad the decor will have to go down in less than a month? Over in the corner, we gave our deer a scarf and the cute Pre-Lit Tabletop Tree almost got snagged for on the Sweets rooms. I won, but I have a feeling this will be a battle every year. Can we just talk about these fun Kilim pillows? I almost got them in red but then decided on the black. I absolutely love the texture they bring to this room. Tomorrow I am sharing a quick tip about that fireplace TV screen. #mindblown The large DIY art got a big wreath. (Secret: I used a dry cleaner hanger curved to hang it!)

I’m thrilled to be teaming up with Home Decorators Collection® again this year for the #HDCholidayhomes blog tour, along with several other blog friends. Today is Part 4 of our Blue Christmas holiday home tour today and it includes a few festive finds I chose from Home Decorators Collection®. Plus at the end of this post you will have a chance to win one of two $250 gift cards! (If you missed the previous rooms in my Blue Christmas Holiday Home Tour, here is the foyer, the den and the dining room) I was thrilled to be able to choose some new items from Home Decorators Collection® to give our living room some cheer! This room was recently given lots of love during the fall One Room Challenge - a makeover that I lovingly call "Madmen Meets the South" - so the layout of the room is totally different than previous years. We also opted not to put our main tree in here this year and using a more petite one. The small tree fits perfect in this space and is filled with metallics and blue. I love this set of Mercury Glass Mini Ornaments- it came with 36 so plenty for me to use on this tree and I also used them in the den on the mantel.
