{ Historic Vintage Christmas Sitting Room }

 Ahhhh my most favorite time of the year!! November & December are indeed my favorite, even if they are the most chaotic too  usually  ha! I finally was able to finish our 2021 Christmas decor { for the most part }. I tried something new this year... I stepped entirely out of my comfort zone & used lots of vintage inspired colors, warmth & TONS of brass goods!! I have to be honest, I had no idea going into this year's holiday season what I was going to do throughout the house. Typically I do neutral in the living room & colorful in the family room. This year I had zero ideas..BUT it's definitely my most favorite in the almost 10 years I've been blogging I promise! Come see the year's upstairs sitting room below.....


I can't tell you how warm & almost enchanting this upstairs sitting room is this season! It's warm like a great big hug & so magical!! Lots of brass, vintage chipped blue, flocked, vintage ticking stripe , greys & aged reds! 


I love history & wanted to recreate a vintage tree with lots of warm character! The gold & teal mercury bulbs, wood & white glowing lights finish this tree!! The cabinet I wanted to be super warm & filled with textured antique goods! Baskets, antique wood pipes, lanterns & a tin joy sign!


The pillows coordinated well with the tree bulbs & pops of reds add that holiday ambiance with classic red bows! 


These vintage burlap & cotton sock  stockings add that touch of antique, whimsical & historic look! For Stewart, Swartz & Sugar { our three rescues }.  



The chalkboards were previously here, 
I just took & brushed the frame borders with brass paint!! 


Mixed in lots of beads, bells & old vintage/ historic elements for layers of coziness!!!


I've loved this chocolate tin for years, my gram finally gifted it & I just added some extra bulbs from the tree & beads to the brass candlesticks & wicker tray!


The vintage houses from the pillow below were the big inspiration!! So these woods houses were a must on the mantel!!



I hope you were inspired in any way possible by this oh so warm & comfy Christmas sitting room! 

HAPPY Tuesday!
