Moms’ Christmas Home Tour: The Brick Room

Good morning, friends!  I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and that you are enjoying this season as much as I am.  As I mentioned in my post on Friday, I have some exciting features coming these next couple of weeks!  Get ready for a Christmas Inspiration Overload!  ;-)  Since I am pretty much finished with my own Christmas crafts and decorating, I thought I would turn this blog over to two wonderful women in my life and show you what they’re up to this Christmas season.

Oh, yes.  It’s happening!  My beautiful mommy and fabulous mother-in-law have been kind enough to let me house crash and take note of all of the amazing Christmasy details so that you, my wonderful readers, can get all kinds of inspired!  This week, we’ve got my mother-in-law, Sharon’s, decor, and you are not going to want to miss out!  Next week, I will be writing all about my mom’s beautiful decorating, and I can’t wait to show you that, too!  Here’s the schedule for this week…

Moms' Christmas Home Tours Week One {Inspiration Affirmation}
Is this gonna be fun, or what?!  And it all starts today, my friends.  Let’s get going!  Day One brings us to what we ‘kids’ call The Brick Room.  Why, you ask?  Because of the brick flooring (aren’t we clever?).  This room is off to the left of the formal entry when you walk through the front door.  Come on in!

As you can see, the brick flooring is covered with a beeeautiful rug that helps to echo the deep red color palette of the Christmas decor all throughout this room.

Lots of reds, browns, and metallics in this room that really pull it all together.

Off to the side, there is a pretty vignette complete with a feather wreath hanging from antlers, and a festively-dressed frog relaxing on one of the many seating options in the room.

On the coffee table in the Brick Room, there is a lovely Christmasy centerpiece.  My mother-in-law changes out the contents of this tray for every season — very handy!

Here is a closer view.  A branch candelabra and gilded pinecones look beautiful against the ‘snowy’ base.

And closer yet again so that you can see all of the pretty features.  I love how my mother-in-law sprinkled some of the snow on the candelabra, too!  It’s all about the details, people!  ;-)

Christmas In the Brick Room Dining Centerpiece {inspiration Affirmation}
Here is an easy centerpiece in the formal dining area of the Brick Room.  This is where we celebrate holidays and other special occasions.

This centerpiece features a glass hurricane with an ornate candle in the center, placed in the middle of a wreath.  Easy-peasy — and so pretty!

Now how about that fireplace?  Let’s take a closer look.

A pretty, full garland is spread across the top, with vases of feathers and sticks flanking the sides of the mantel (those are always there, but I love them at Christmas so much!).

A gorgeous ribbon adorned with berries and a sprinkling of gold accents…*sigh*.  That’s Christmas to me.

And seriously…how fun are these stockings?!  (Blogger-Leg Reflection Alert!)  I love how well they tie in with this room’s decor and how embellished they are!  Nothing shy about these babies!

A glittery Christmas angel sits on the hearth of the fireplace.  Isn’t she pretty?

Christmas In the Brick Room Tree {Inspiration Affirmation}
Of course, what’s Christmas in the Brick Room without the red tree?

I love the mix of ornaments on this tree.  Huge ones intermixed with the daintier variety.  This red tree is not for the faint of heart — it’s large and in charge!  ;-)

There she is all lit up…makes my heart sing!  Let’s take one final look at this beauty of a room…

What’s your favorite part?  Is it the shimmery red tree?  The frog in the corner?  The beautiful mantel?  Let’s discuss!

*Be sure to come back tomorrow for Day Two of this week’s Christmas Home Tour — a festive kitchen!*

*Update!*

 

My mother-in-law zhushed up the tree a bit with some gold mesh ribbon (found at Paddock Pools, no lie!) and a different sort of tree topper.  I love this version, too!
