I love Christmas and holiday decor, and this year’s black, white, gold and red color scheme is inspired by Sephora’s ad campaign this year. Isn’t it a modern and festive color palette?

And Pee Wee is usually the first to greet our guests, so he wanted to greet you today, too. Isn’t he dapper?
I typically only decorate our living room and dining room, and this year I opted to keep the same black, white and gold color scheme as last year but I added in touches of red.
Let’s start off in the living room. This room is long and narrow, which I hate 11 months out of the year, but for the holidays I stuff it full of decor and it feels oh so cozy!
LIVING ROOM CHRISTMAS DECOR
Last Friday I decided to finally reupholster my tufted ottoman (it was ripped in five places), and I love the way it looks now with some striped fabric.
It brightens up the space and is striking, but best of all the whole upholstery job cost me under $20. Replacing the rug is next on my wish list, but I cannot seem to find a rug I absolutely love.
The Christmas tree is my fave. I really piled on the ornaments, gold feathers and decor to make it opulent.
I typically don’t do too much to my bookshelves, but the addition of the decorated garland does it make this bookshelf feel festive.
Every year I also try to coordinate my wrapping paper and gift bags as much as I can for a cohesive look. I tend to get most of my gift bags at Target or Dollar Tree.
As much as I like super big floral arrangements, sometimes a slim vase with a big floral stem is all you need for a smaller accent table.
BAR CART HOLIDAY DECOR
I used a cake stand to add some height and a silver tinsel tree gives it a dash of sparkle.
The addition of the $3 Target Dollar Spot “Merry Christmas” sign really makes the bar cart pop and looks like a hand-lettered chalkboard.
The holiday season means there’s plenty of gorgeous champagne and wine bottles around that make any bar cart look instantly snazzier.
Another good way to use up extra ornaments is to string them all on some ribbon to create giant ornaments clusters like the one below. I believe I used about 17-19 ornaments to create it.
GLAM & GOLD CHRISTMAS MANTEL DECOR
My mantle is very similar to last year’s mantle, but this year the lit garland adds a bit of glitter and glam.
It’s a simple mantle, but I think it all comes together beautifully. It gives me some Kate Spade gold polka dot vibes.
That “fa la la la la” garland I bought from Target last year is still one of my fave holiday buys.
The gold sequin stockings are so stunning! If you can snag these, you should. Timeless and a total steal.
A fun, easy way to personalize stockings is with mini chalkboards adorned with mini bows.
Decorating with various glittery deers all over the place has become my “thing”. They’re so classy looking and they remind me of my dear Pee Wee.
Some $2 photo boxes from Michael’s and $1 Target gift bags round out the hearth area. The main attraction is that beautiful canister from ZGallerie that was given to me by a dear friend last year.
DINING ROOM CHRISTMAS DECORATIONS
Now, let’s go on over to Pee Wee’s Parlor and the dining room…another long and narrow room.
My 1970’s ranch home is very segmented, but we make the most of the space. It’s so warm feeling in here thanks to the potted Christmas tree and all the metallics I used in here.
I love how the black and white throw pillows really add some interest amongst all the Christmas decor.
The rustic reclaimed desk has a few extra plates and flatware, plus some holiday decor.
I kept the tree similar to the one in the living room, but I do love how this tree has pine cones and berries built into the branches. Gives it a fuller, luxe look.
I already wrote a post showcasing my dining table holiday decor, but in case you missed it, here are a few of the highlights.
I kept it all very low to help keep food, drink and conversations flowing. Plenty of candles are always a must at my dining table.
The foyer area looks so beautiful from this angle. The color is peppercorn.
Splurging on real flowers is always a good idea for a dining table centerpiece- it instantly adds class and elegance to a dinner party setting.
And finally, here’s a cute picture of Pee Wee thoroughly exhausted after following me around all evening as I snapped photos.
Too bad he can’t help me edit. 🙂
Hope you enjoyed my holiday tour, and I thank you SO much for stopping by. Please feel free to pin and share if you’d like– it means the world to me!
