MEGHAN’S HOLIDAY LIVING ROOM DESIGN AND CHRISTMAS TREE

I am excited to join in on the My Home Style Christmas tree blog hop to share Meghan’s apartment living room design with her holiday decor! I shared a glimpse of the dining nook in this post but haven’t yet shown the other side of the room, including this new sectional and my Anatolia rug in blush pink. You might remember her Christmas tree last year, and the color scheme has definitely stayed consistent with her new apartment featuring shades of blue and pink. I love leaning into the jewel-tones in Meghan’s apartment, so the tree is full of navy blue and emerald green mixed with this year’s addition of champagne-gold tones. I also added boxwood wreaths to the windows for classic greenery that softens space. See more views of Meghan’s living room and my new decor additions below!

There was less space this year than last for a Christmas tree, so I found a prelit 7.5-foot slim tree (on sale now!) and it is the perfect size and shape for this room. It has pretty Virginia pine style needles and was easy to fill in with a mix of classic ornaments to really make the tree shine.

I love a mix of shapes and textures on a Christmas tree, but definitely lean towards a more homogenous mix with cohesive silhouettes – so the ornaments are mostly variations on spheres with simple, solid colors and designs. This year I added this elegant set of solid color glass ornaments and I love the mix of colors it brought to the tree. There are also new jingle bells for a fun little detail and you might spot a fabulous shoe that my mom gave Meghan for Christmas last year. I love shoe ornaments – there are some really fun ones in this collection!

The new sectional is such a perfect scale for this room and has a great neutral fabric that is super sturdy and really warms up the space. I used one of the nightstands from her old bedroom design but replaced the drawer hardware with these beautiful mother-of-pearl knobs. They are like jewelry in here!

You might remember this fun little blue velvet stools from the entryway of the West Midtown project. They are perfect in here because they don’t take up a lot of real estate on the floor.

The dining nook is such a romantic little seating area with the cutest chinoiserie-style wallpaper I found on Etsy. I hung a pair of mirrors on top and brought in some yummy green velvet into the design with this little dining bench. It feels like a cozy little banquette corner with the little table lamp which adds a nice little glow at night.

Accent lighting is so important in an apartment because the overhead lights are often not great light and super unflattering, so I made sure there were lights both by the sectional and the table. This fabulous blue painted table lamp and the pleated shade are from Oka, along with the gorgeous throw pillows (ikat and blue velvet). I absolutely love the scale of this lamp – it really makes the room!

I may eventually tie a bow on these classic preserved boxwood wreaths, but for now it’s just so nice to have a pop of greenery in the windows. They break up the large commercial window frames with something soft, natural, and round and it really helps soften the room.

It was so much fun adding this holiday decor to Meghan’s apartment again this year, and I hope you loved this peek inside her new living room design!

  3. I love your idea of how you put the Christmas decor outside in your window. It will save more space. But Isn’t hassle if it will rain?

    • The wreaths are actually hung on the inside!
