My living room is the center of the Holidays. At this time of the year, more than any other, I like my living room to be a warm and welcoming place for myself, family and friends to relax and unwind together. In my home, my entryway leads straight into the living room so it is important that the two spaces compliment one another.

As the season changes, and the days become cooler, it’s a great time to re-think your living room décor and bring in items that reflect the joy of the Holiday season. I wanted to create a room that reflects my love of Scandinavian and mid-century design and was thrilled to find lots of pieces at Hayneedle that allowed me to realize my vision.

With the darker days ahead, it was important to keep my living room bright and light, so I began this make-over by thinking about color. Gold and white are hot right now and make a gorgeous winter color combination, so I began there with the The Modway Lounge Chair, nuLoom Greek Flokati rug and beautiful Olivia ceramics. I made a fresh TV cover in complimentary shades of silver, grey and white. And recovered my ottoman in a durable, geometric upholstery fabric. 

Next I layered on touches of rich red and dark wood, like the rustic JOY letter lights, the red berry balls and those gorgeous Belham side tables to create a sumptuous palette that is perfect for Fall.

Texture is oh-so-important when creating any room but it’s especially important when planning your Fall décor. To bring the room to life and keep it feeling cozy I added details like the embellished pillows, wool baskets and natural wood end table. The white willow wreath and fresh foliage from my yard are simple ways of adding texture with little to no cost. We made a large macrame wall hanging using rope from our local hardware store and an over-sized string sphere light shade for the ceiling pendant. 

Gloomy days can make a home feel dark so I brought in the Fortune wall mirror to reflect any natural light in the entryway and I can brighten the darker evenings with accent lighting like the Kenroy table lamp and the Adesso floor lamp – perfect!

I finished my living room update by choosing a tree that compliments my décor perfectly. The Vintage Black Ombre tree, with lights and stand, is the perfect blend of tradition and glamor. All that’s left to be done is wrap a couple final gifts and pour myself a glass of warm mulled wine. If you are inspired by my living room update for Fall, head over to Hayneedle and take a look at their fab Holiday offers. Happy Holidays! ~ Lia
