Living Room Wrapped Up

This is the room for the holiday season.  I adjusted the furniture to allow for the tree.  

I kept the coffee table simple.

Again the sun popped in- sure made the red pop! 

The pillows are from Pier 1 and MacKenzie Childs.  The only way I can afford anything from MC is at the end of the season clearance sales.  Some things go so fast it's mind boggling but every so often I luck out.

 This mercury glass pot is a few years old and came from Pottery Barn.  I don't do much with silver coloring but this pops nicely in the room and with the red flowers it's made even more dramatic.  I found the mercury glass votives at. T.J.Maxx a couple of months back.  The candy tray has surfaced on my posts many times.  I loaded it with some Ghirardelli candy cane chocolates!

I used my iPhone to make a panoramic picture so everything is included.  It makes things look a little wonky but it captures an all encompassing view.

Extra, extra- I came across this pet bed at the store and grabbed it up.  I couldn't believe they had one with a tartan plaid print!  (Petsmart 30% off)  I keep a bed here on the sofa so the cats aren't leaving their fur everywhere.  They sit next to me in the evenings when I play on my iPad and watch tv.

Evening shot...

I have more pictures coming of the dining and kitchen areas coming this week!

  9. So beautiful Liz, love your pillows. The cat bed you found is great, love the plaid. Your fireplace garland is stunning


  10. Oh Liz, this is stunning! I'm like you, typically only indulge in the MC items when on sale, and last year was disappointed in the workmanship of one pillow I received but kept anyway. Of course, I love all your plaid accents, and that pet bed! Your use of the panoramic did a nice job, and I really need to experiment with that feature. Great shots, lovely home and decor, and I'm looking forward to seeing the dining (yes!) and kitchen areas.

  11. WOW Liz, your living room is gorgeous. I love your tree and the warm cozy style of your room. Your plaid accents are lovely along with the sweet kitty bed. Your fireplace is just stunning with the garland. You captured a great wide shot. I also love your windows and the blinds that look like they come up from the bottom. Is this how they operate? I need to look into something like this for a few windows in our dining room. Enjoy the rest of the week. xo

  12. Oh my goodness, Liz! What a beautiful living room! Your tree is stunning and that sleigh!!! I just adore it! Let's not talk about the Mackenzie-Child's sale... it's my little secret. I go a little crazy and order "all the things." I just love their toile and parchment line. Have a Merry Merry Christmas with your loved ones! Thank you for linking up on my tour! xox


Thank you for your comments! I don’t always get a chance to reply but I do read them!


Welcome to Home and Gardening With Liz. I have combined my previous blogs “Infuse With Liz” and “Sit With Me In My Garden” into this new blog. I love interior decorating and gardening.
