Are you ready for some Christmas inspiration? Today is day four of the Bloggers’ Best Holiday Home Tours and I am so excited to be sharing my Copper and Gray Christmas Tree along with 28 of my blogging friends sharing their beautiful holiday homes!
So grab a cuppa and a cozy spot and get ready to be inspired. You can find each of their posts linked at the bottom of mine.
When we were making over our family room, Christmas decor was already on my mind!
Where will we put the tree and which decor will I use for this room?
Last year, we used traditional Christmas colors upstairs and they looked beautiful!
But for this moody, basement family room, I knew I needed a different look.
Something neutral but bold and maybe a little bit of whimsy with pops of color and metallic ornaments.
Before I get to all the details of this post, I wanted to take a moment to say how much I love sharing my tree reveal posts each year. Especially when it's in with am amazing group of talented bloggers who are also sharing their Christmas decor hosted by my sweet friend, Kelly, from The Tattered Pew.
If you are coming from The Ponds Farmhouse, then welcome to Noting Grace! I am so grateful you chose to spend some time with me here. I always enjoy seeing Rachel's vintage decor!

Moody Copper and Gray Christmas Tree
(Some affiliate links are provided below. Full disclosure here.)
Every place where we have moved, whenever I looked at a house, I always thought "Where do we put the tree?"
With this family room makeover, we knew we were getting a large sectional that took up most of the room.
So that limited me to where I could place our Christmas tree.
Which the only option is in the corner next to our charcoal lime washed accent wall.
I wanted a dramatic effect against that bold wall, so I opted for our flocked tree.
I knew a white Christmas tree would certainly stand out.
We got our white flocked Christmas tree a few years ago from King of Christmas and it is still in excellent condition after 3 years.
For our basement, I have camel and copper tones spread throughout my room as my accent color and I knew I needed to continue that pop of color on my tree.
After a search for beautiful ornaments, I settled on a combination that has become my favorite color palette for this room.
I started with this fabric mesh garland in a soft rose gold I found at Michaels stores.
I thought the look of a copper wire type of garland would help tie in that accent color in our room along with some fun copper ornaments.
Next I added some flocked poinsettias as well as some velvety gold poinsettia picks I found at Hobby Lobby.
I love to find unique Christmas tree toppers, so I used those as my tree topper as well as fill in any spaces on our white tree.
For the ornaments, I wanted to a combination of matte finish and sparkly ornaments with hints of natural elements.
So I used a combo of charcoal, silver, copper and gold ornaments along with a few black ones.
And to finish it off, I added some fun faux leather ornaments.
Even though I wasn't shopping for Christmas tree skirts, on a recent Walmart run, I stumbled upon this plaid tree skirt with the perfect leather piping!
I think it's the perfect addition for this holiday season!
And yes - I like to leave the flocking that fell from the tree on the skirt. Since we don't get much snow here in Alabama, it give the feel of fresh fallen snow.
Then I found the matching stockings and was so happy! They fit our room perfectly!
So I hung them on the antique sideboard next to the tree next to the tree skirt.
My son got excited to see Christmas gifts under the tree!
The final touch is always the ribbon. Burlap ribbon is always a favorite of mine. I love to find after-christmas sales and stock up for the next year.
Since our Christmas tree is the hero of the room, I added very minimal decor to the rest of the room.
I also added the same mesh garland to our stairway to give it some pizazz.
And I just placed a few wintry arrangement on our side tables.
This little tree in a leather box was another Walmart find and is a the perfect piece for this room!
It matches our leather pillows and ottoman to a T!
Now our whole family can't wait to get downstairs as a family and of course enjoy the Christmas lights in our new-to-us room.
Stepping away from a traditional color scheme can seem a bit scary at first, but can still be a gorgeous display to get you in the holiday spirit.
Stay tuned for more of our holiday home tour next week where I'll be sharing our living room and sunroom.
