My Home Style Christmas Tree Edition | Bold Neutral Glam

This is our Bliss My Home Style Christmas Tree Edition - bold neutral glam -

When it comes to decorating our home, my style can pretty much be summed up in 3 simple words: bold, neutral and glam. When it comes to trimming the tree, I don’t venture too far outside my comfort zone with the exception of the use of the color red! If you take a look around here during any month besides December, red can only be found in 2 places – the playroom and in my wine glass. no joke. I truly prefer a neutral color pallette with bold, distinctive prints and patterns with a hefty side of glitz and glam. #metallicsaremyjam

Today, I am breaking down the elements of our lovely Living Room tree for the My Home Style Blog Hop Christmas: Tree Edition hosted by Casa Watkins! If you are stopping over from My Life From Home, welcome!! A group of home decor & DIY bloggers have joined forces to celebrate style…style in the home and in the spirit of the season, style found in our Christmas trees!

Now let’s take a peek at this Bold Neutral Glam Christmas Tree, shall we?
my home style christmas tree edition collage - bold neutral glam - thisisourbliss.comHere is how my tree came to life!

Since pattern play is one of my favorite ways to incorporate a variety of prints, I am usually inspired by a fabulous fabric, typically in the form of a pillow, but for the tree I was inspired by both fabric and wrapping paper.

It's raining outside, the boys are awake but miraculously quiet & calm... So, I'm having a #holiday #crafternoon & in case you were wondering, Pandora is set to "Mariah Carey Holiday #canthelpit #cantwaittodecorate #targetchristmas #christmas2015 #stripes

I’ll admit, I am a bit of a wrapping paper hoarder collector. Those rolls always find a way to jump into my shopping cart year-round, so by the time the holidays are upon us, I have a pretty hefty stash.

The black, white, tan and gold triangle geo print seemed fun and well…bold, neutral and glam, so it came home with me, too. The red plaid paper above was a great find. I had been searching for red plaids that didn’t have any green in them and it was tough! I lucked out with that roll from Michaels!

Another plaid you’ll see around the house this time of the year are my Amazon plaid napkins which I turned into pillows AND used on my Christmas table! I couldn’t resist after whipping up a couple napkin pillows up for fall.

Now, back to the tree…

It’s actually the same tree topper we’ve had since our first Christmas tree when we were still dating; I can’t bear to part with it! Since I’ve mixed metals throughout the tree and it IS made of sequins and all, it can stay 😉
