Christmas Tour...The Sitting Room

I'm back with my Christmas tour and as promised,
I'm going to share my sitting room with you today.

 This is one of my most favorite rooms;
it's connected to the dining room.
As a result, I kept the same color scheme
with neutrals in white, cream, silver & gold.
In this room though, there is a touch of blue.
(Warning:  I may have taken a few too many photos.)
I bought this tree last year after Christmas and I forgot all about it.
My husband was pulling the decorations from the attic and
called me to say he found a tree in the attic still in the box.
I had no clue what it was!  lol
He actually had to send a picture of it to me while I was at work!
Close up of some ornaments on the tree.
 Some sparkle atop my blue dresser.
 My seasonal pillows.
And yes, the girl who can't sew (that being me), made that poinsettia pillow!
I would have had a tutorial to share, but who am I fooling...I didn't take
any pictures during the process.
I never thought in a million years it would turn out like that!  lol

This shelf hangs opposite the wall with the blue dresser.
You may remember this shelf from last year.
The display is pretty much the same.
And there you have it, my holiday sitting room!
I'm hoping to continue the Christmas tour soon.
(If I could only get some decent photos in this drab weather.) 
The rest of the décor in the house features lots of red.
I hope you'll join me!

Welcome! I'm Gina. Like the header says, this blog is all about home, food and life..

  5. Gina I love your poinsettia pillow. The tree is so cute in the barrel.

  6. Gina, your sitting room is absolutely festive and gorgeous!

    You know that shelf you have your white ironstone on? I think you could tuck Christmas cards on the frame around it, couldn't you? Of course they won't be white and match - but does make the shelf even more valuable having dual purposing.

    Love your room, trying to catch up on past posts from everyone, have been sick and am waaaaay behind.


  7. Bring that barrel and those pillows right over to my house would you?
