Have you started decorating yet? Christmas is in full swing over here and has been for a few weeks…it’s been a ton of work getting it done (I’m still going!), but we’re loving our home all decked out. Last week, I shared our new Christmas tree and garland, all dressed up in gorgeous blue and gold, and today, I’m thrilled to share our blue and gold Christmas living room reveal with you.

If you’ve been reading with me recently, then you know how happy I am to bring these beautiful colors back into our home. With blue and white as a constant color theme throughout our home, I am in love with this year’s Christmas palette!

I hope you enjoy the details in our blue and gold Christmas living room!

    Thank you so much for the kind words! I have seen some beautiful sofas at Pottery Barn and Urban Barn, but not quite the same. You can always try to get a custom sofa made – Cameo and Avenue design (both Montreal based) could be options!
