christmas decor - formal dining and living rooms

While home a couple weeks ago I made a point to decorate my dining room and formal living room for Christmas.

I had brainstormed and bought many new elements over the past couple of months, elements of which I combined with holiday decor from years past.

My vision for these rooms was clear - classy, inviting, rustic, festive - as they are what welcomes you when you walk through our front door.

Love my new home.
