This post will show 5 Ideas to help you Create a Cozy Christmas Family Room. Beautiful traditional green Christmas tree is combined with teal and lime green for a colorful Christmas home.

I found some blogger’s gold!

I mean some teal and lime green.

Actually, here’s what I mean. Some how I’ve never shared my Christmas Family Room from a few years back, and that is blogger’s gold, even though it is teal and lime green.

The photos had been taken, sorted through and edited.

From there, I can not recall why I never shared this amazing Cozy Christmas Family Room with you. But, that changes today!

Lucky for you, I’m usually a year or two ahead of color schemes. Teal and similar shades are coming in strong this year and headed into next year. SO, if you’re loving the teal and lime green combination, you can create it!

Here are 5 Ideas to Create a Cozy Christmas Family Room

1. Create a wow moment as you first enter the room.

This is a favorite technique of mine whether I’m decorating my home for Christmas, or any time. I love a little drama.

By placing this sparkly Christmas tree on the sofa table, the elegant tree grabs the eye right away, and you have to peek around to see what additional Christmas joy is around the branches.

2. Always Decorate the Fireplace Mantel for Christmas

Do you have a fireplace in your family room?

Aren’t they just the perfect feature for Decorating at Christmas?

I’ve known designers who add a faux fireplace mantel, just for Christmas time for the cozy vibes they create. I will be posting next week on 5 creative ways to decorate your mantel for little money.

Be sure to subscribe to my blog and you’ll get an email as soon as I post! You can feel out the box just below, and then continue reading this post. I’ll wait!

3. Add comfy, cozy Christmas Themed Throw Pillows

Let’s just all admit now, (say your name), and I have a pillow problem! I’m fairly sure if you’re reading this home decor and DIY blog, you have at least 1/2 of a linen closet stuffed with varying colors of throw pillows, hypothetically speaking. Maybe.

I guess my point, is why not add a darling Christmas throw pillow to the mix? I found this small one (key for storage), at an antique store several years ago. Love, love the hand made touch. The “home” pillow I’ve had several years. Speaking of….it’s time to bring it back out of the closet.

4. Place beautifully wrapped Christmas gifts around the room.

Of course we place gifts under the Christmas tree, but think about using them as inexpensive Christmas decor. I will wrap a $8 gift in the most beautiful way possible. The kids never know what they’re opening!

Tip: By Christmas wrapping paper after Christmas. You can get such great bargains that way!

5. Use Extra Christmas Ornaments as Holiday Decor

This may be my favorite way to get lots of bang for just a little buck! Pull out your china bowl, or punch bowl, or your grandmother’s vintage brass planter, and fill it with left over ornaments. You will find at least one bowl full of ornaments in most rooms of my Christmas home.

These ideas work great for any Christmas color scheme. I loved the teal and lime green at Christmas and felt they really created a fun Christmas environment in the home.

You can create a similar Lime Green and Teal Tree with the ornaments and Christmas decor sourced below:

Last year I combined a different color with just a touch of the teal Christmas ornaments to create a elegant flocked Christmas tree. See that tree HERE.
