Having an open staircase makes it fun when it comes time to hang the Christmas garlands.
Since, this is the first place guests see, I feel like this is one of the most important areas of the house to decorate.
Of course, most of my close friends and family arrive through the garage when they stop over.
Maybe I should have hung garland in there!
Anyway, I used darker red bows to match the fruit on the garland.
The darker red also coordinates well with our rug.
Also, I carried the bows over to the mirror. Though, the red on my table is a little brighter.
And the poinsettias are bright Christmas red too.
Like previous years, I kept things pretty simple here with some fresh greens and fake berries.
And a Pier One lantern which I realized a minute ago, still has a raffia bow on top from the fall.
I will be changing that to a Christmas one!
Here is another angle of the stairs.
And up we go (to the boob lights!)
From here, you can see the view into the living room. Before long, we’ll be bringing in our live Christmas tree. At that point, we’ll rearrange the furniture a bit.
Thanks for stopping by!
