Liz’ Tips

HOMEFINDER WEEKLY Reference Guide Inc. Brockville/Leeds & Grenville 1.877.935.7503 www.homefinderweekly.com

December 6th to December 20th, 2012

Pretty Christmas Living Rooms.

Although the weather outside might be frightful, your décor inside can remain delightful. Add Christmas touches to your living room with these decorating tips to change your Liz’ Tips By: Liz Quinn of Design’in-Mind room from everyday décor to holiday cheer…without emptying your pocket book.

Maximum Impact with Minimal Investment Brockville, Ontario

Use a Simple Color Scheme

Swap Artwork for Christmas-Theme Prints

A classic white living room can be holidayready in minutes with a few pops of red. Keep the decorating to a minimum and your living room Christmas cozy with a simple red-and-white beaded garland strung across the mantel and set reindeer-theme (or other Christmas theme) accent pillows on chairs.. Have a non-functioning fireplace? Just stack birch logs in the fireplace

Hang a Unique Wreath

Give your living room a modern spin for the holidays -- and focus on the fireplace -- with a non-traditional wreath. Fill a wicker basket with freshly clipped evergreen boughs, leafy stems, and berried twigs from the backyard and hang above the fireplace. Tie the decor together with more greenery in a rustic urn by the chair and on the mantel as a simple garland.

The Christmas tree is often the focal point of the living room, but remember to spread a little cheer throughout the room. Replace everyday artwork with yuletide-theme images, such as the framed vintage poster shown here.

Choose a Smaller Tree

Try a smaller Christmas tree to avoid overwhelming a cozy room. To give a downsized tree more prominence and height, pot it in a tall garden urn. Then outfit the tree with an out-of-the-ordinary color scheme, such as the aqua and orange seen here, which can be incorporated into the rest of the room. Or, of course, add colours to incorporate your existing room décor.

Add Cheer without a Mantel

Make Your Decorations Sparkle

Accent a Central Table

Not a traditional holiday decorator? Dress up your living room with sparkling accents to create a cheery feel for Christmas. Set clusters of silver, gold, and icy blue ornaments on the mantel in clear vases and apothecary jars nestled amongst a leafy garland. A string of light blue beads dangling from the mantel along with white stockings create a soft festive look. Off to the side, the frosted tree is what really sparkles, with white lights and icy blue and silver accent ornaments.

Give your living room a modern spin for the holidays -- and focus on the fireplace -- with a non-traditional wreath. Fill a wicker basket with freshly clipped evergreen boughs, leafy stems, and berried twigs from the backyard and hang above the fireplace. Tie the decor together with more greenery in a rustic urn by the chair and on the mantel as a simple garland.

Have a fireplace but no mantel? Compensate for the bare facade with an oversize wreath, which fills the space above the fireplace. Complete the look by adding some festive decorations to the hearth, such as berry branches in a pitcher or miniature decorative cone trees.

Keep Christmas Additions Casual

For a formal space, keep things simple with low-key Christmas decorations. Here, the stately tree becomes the room's focal point, bearing a graceful assortment of red, gold, and silver ornaments. Sprigs of greenery, gold painted pinecones, and leaf vines lounge on the mantel, and candle-and-ornament arrangements add sparkle to the side table and coffee table.

Create Cabin-Style Christmas Cheer

Stay true to your decorating roots. Coordinate holiday decorations to fit the style of the house. Here, this cabin used earthy reds, greens, and golds for Christmas cheer.

Mix Modern and Traditional Decorating Styles

If you like to stick with traditional colors, mix your decorating styles for a fun holiday look. Hang tall socks on the fireplace mantel as stockings, and stack wrapped presents and old suitcases in an unused fireplace. Display a bouquet of holiday poinsettias in a white vase on a coffee table next to a tray of white pillar candles, ornaments, and greenery. Use pinecones and burlap accents to bring a rustic and comfortable feel to your Christmas living room.and on the mantel as a simple garland.

Play Up Colors in Your Home

Use the existing color scheme in your living room to inspire your Christmas decorations. Wide gold ribbon wrapped around the tree ties into the golden walls to create an earth-tone look. Off-white stockings match the fireplace and some of the tree ornaments to tie the decor together.

TIP: Avoid overcrowding a room with numerous Christmas décor ornaments. Swap your decorations: it is best to remove (and store) a regular item and replace it with a festive one. ~ After the holidays are over, pack away your decorations & return all regular items to their choice location.

Decorate with Antiques

Antiques -- such as the ornate candle scones above the fireplace, five-generations worth of ornaments on the Christmas tree, and a weathered old trunk -- fill this living room with history. The boughs of magnolia draped across the mantel and the square wreath hung above are fresh additions to the decor.

Set the Scene with Poinsettias

Bright poinsettias and Santa's sleigh set the holiday scene in this living room. A red-andgreen drum added to the coffee table and a Santa pillow tossed on the sofa reinforce the theme.

Enjoy a Safe & Merry Christmas!

Hire a REALTOR

®

A qualified, competent REALTOR® will help you navigate the myriad of decisions that arise when buying and selling a home. A REALTOR® provides value to the homeowner in many ways:

• Pays for all marketing and advertising costs.

• Adds experience and expertise in all aspects of the sales process including marketing, financing, negotiations and more. • Handles all showings.

• Brings a network of known, trusted real estate professionals. If your REALTOR® doesn’t have the answer, he or she likely knows someone who does. • Always has your interests in mind so you always have someone on your side.

• Can handle and advise on all price and contract negotiations. • Provides you with all the possible options and opportunities without holding back.

• Gives an unbiased, realistic view of your home and your options.

• Unlike buyers and sellers, a REALTOR® has no emotional attachment to property.

• Has the knowledge to help you ask the right questions.

• Being a third party, potential buyers are more likely to tell your REALTOR® the truth about your home, even if it is unflattering. This objective viewpoint will help you make the necessary changes to get your home sold.

• Your time is valuable. A REALTOR® allows you to spend your time how you want.
