It's hard to get in the spirit when your significant other is shouting bah humbug. But then against his better judgement I'm sure, Bernie came home on our first Christmas Eve in our new house with a 16 foot pre lit tree. Such a sweet, and manly, jesture. That tree was so big and bright it lit up the entire front room. GE, we bring good things to light! Look at the cathedral ceilings and the large day bed to really appreciate the scale.
We (when I say we, I really mean I) couldn't really enjoy this tree because it was out in the living room. I'm under the belief that you need to be in the same room as your tree for maximum enjoyment. So, I went out and got a reasonably sized tree for our family room. So we could enjoy a tree in the room we were in the most. Makes sense, right?
Parlor Shoppign Guide: in case anyone was wondering, the awesome new lucite table came from Overstock, the lambskin rug is from Costco, and the jute rug is from West Elm. The mirror, purchased earlier this year, is from Restoration Hardware. "Vintage" day bed circa 2004 and monogrammed Christmas stockings are from Pottery Barn.
