Not only is Jennifer Bridgman a extremely talented stylist, she also tends to make and upholsters her very own furniture! It’s no wonder then that her Christmas decorating includes a new coffee table and a beaded light fixture she created herself.
Jennifer writes about do-it-yourself projects on her blog The Chronicles of House, and she’s 1 of the talented DIY bloggers we asked to consider portion in our Holiday Design Challenge series. We sent Jennifer and several other bloggers mystery boxes of House Depot Christmas decorations and challenged them to come up with fresh ideas for vacation decorating.
Jennifer created a classic Christmas decor, with plenty of greenery and twinkling lights, and blue accents to match her living area decor.
I wait all 12 months to break out the Christmas décor and this yr I received festive a minor early when Residence Depot asked me to participate in their Holiday Fashion Challenge. I was assigned one of the “wild card” spots, which meant I could do anything at all I wanted with the goodies sent to me–the possibilities were pretty much endless! And a minor overpowering at 1st, to be trustworthy. But when I opened a 7½-ft. LED-lit tree, assorted red and silver ornaments, and a number of pre-lit garlands I could just see it all in my residing room.
My family members only not too long ago moved into this house so I had a pretty much blank slate to perform with–all that I’d bought for the living space was the navy blue sofa, which I identified heavily faded on Craigslist and revived with fabric dye.
I knew we needed a coffee table and I wanted a light fixture to hang from the empty electrical box on the ceiling, so I set about generating them each mainly from resources obtained at The Residence Depot.
I developed the coffee table out of plywood and decide on pine boards, covered it in grasscloth wallpaper, and then lacquered the whole issue.
For the beaded pendant, I constructed a wooden frame to sit close to a mini pendant light and draped strands of unfinished wood beads to complete the appear.
I’ll have full tutorials for the two of these tasks on my blog extremely soon now that my Design Challenge submit is reside!
At heart, I’m a traditional Christmas décor type of gal and enjoy gold, silver, and red with fresh or artificial greenery. I desired to update that palette a little bit this year though and drew colour inspiration from a small lumbar pillow I have on the sofa covered in Schumacher’s Shanghai Peacock material. I extra lots of peacock blue during the space, as well as some touches of navy to echo the sofa, and I just adore how the blues play with the red, gold, silver, and greenery.
I’m also this kind of a fan of contrasting textures when decorating, especially when that juxtaposition comes in a rustic/glam kind. I carried that mix by way of the area by adding some easy mini ornaments to a carved wooden bowl on the coffee table, wrapping presents in brown craft paper but incorporating glittery gold ribbon, and popping a sparkly bronze sequined pillow on a neutral wood and linen spool chair (tutorial for creating the pillow coming quickly to my website as well!).
I utilized the pre-lit garlands that have been sent to me in a number of different ways. First I snipped the faux poinsettias off of them and clustered them with each other to make a tree topper. Then I draped two of the garlands across the tops of a pair of Property Decorators Collection Cathedral Mirrors I gilded a bit with Rub-n-Buff and hung behind my sofa.
The final two garlands received draped across the top and sides of my mantel.
I mixed mercury glass ornaments and far more peacock blue among the artificial garland and used a kissing ball as the centerpiece of the mantel arrangement.
I also took a poinsettia mailbox swag that was in my Fashion Challenge box and wrapped it around a glass cloche filled with more mercury glass ornaments on the coffee table.
I hope you appreciated this little tour of my residing area Christmas decorations as much as I loved putting it all with each other. There isn’t much I really like a lot more than the glow of Christmas lights in the property and adding some festivity to a previously bare room actually acquired me in the spirit this year!
