Christmas in LA

living-room-holiday5 copyHere’s a peek into our house as decorated for Christmas. Better late than never right?, and who knows I may never take down that little white tree…

living-room-holiday-treeliving-room-holiday-tree2living-room-holiday2-640-2… and certainly not this DIY wall hanging. :)

DIY-eucalyptus-wall-hangingliving-room-holiday-shelvesI wanted the holiday decorations to blend with the decor but still add all that extra sparkle that makes the season special. Usually I like to err on EXTRA Christmas flair but being this pregnant I wasn’t sure how quickly the decorations will actually make it back into their boxes after the fact, so better to do it with a restrained hand. I did this by using a lot of metallic gold, a white tree, white lights, some natural greens, and then spread it throughout the house so most surfaces had a touch of seasonal love.

It is also the first time we have spent the holidays in the renovated space! To see how far we’ve come, check out the living room before we knocked through a couple walls in the before photos here, and all of the renovation progress so far, here.

  • Love the space. Looks very calming. I’d love to hear more about your plans for decorating once the baby comes. Seems like it’s always a struggle to fit in all the baby gear and still have a home look great! :)

    love that wall hanging.

  • Christmas is LA looks just perfect and I love that wall hanging. Definitely need to recreate!

  • Hi Anna,
    Luckily all those cabinets under the shelves, by the TV are empty so we will have a lot of hidden storage for stashing toys and what not, but when it comes to big stuff I think I’m screwed because there just isn’t much space! I think limiting items to what we really need will help but we will see. Thankfully we have a garage for strollers etc.

  • Thanks Kristin & Chelsea, Happy new Year!

  • Oh my goodness! Wow! Everything is just amazing!

    How did you make the wall hanging?

    I just love everything, but think I am obsessing over the Octagon Mirror. Where did you source that? I am scanning your blog, so if it is listed somewhere on here, hopefully, I will find it. :)

  • Never mind — I just saw that you had listed it. Thank you!
