Jamie and Josh's Christmas Living Room



The girls and I are back from a fun week in New Hampshire. We actually laid pretty low and didn't do a whole lot, but we did do quite a bit of decorating. I didn't take many "people" pictures this time (although I did take a few from our trip to the farmstand to get Dana a Christmas tree which I will post once I get them on the computer if any of them came out okay) but I took tons and tons of photos of Jamie and Josh's house. I have to admit I always get a little jealous when I am at their place. They did such a beautiful job building it and they have found so many wonderful pieces to fill it with.

Jamie and Josh got their tree before the girls and I arrived last weekend and got it decorated but then Jamie pretty much let me have free reign over most of the other decorating. In the past they haven't incorporated any red but this year Jamie wanted to start adding it in. They didn't want to spend much money, though, so this year we just started with some subtle red additions. First, Jamie bought a vintage grainsack and cut it up and made four pillows for her sofas with it. Then she bought two yards of a red ticking strip fabric which she used to tie her sheet music rolls on the tree with and to hang wreaths, and make placemats for the dining room with.  Other than that we pretty much used things they already had mixed with some fresh greenery from the woods and some gorgeous paperwhites that Jamie had planted as bulbs a few weeks ago.

Anyway, here are lots and lots of photos of their living room:

The mirror is from a store that used to be in Peterborough, NH called Red Chair Antiques. 
The sconces are from Restoration Hardware.


I love the stockings my mom made for them.



This basket for firewood is from Target.


Not sure where these boxes are from but they hold newspaper and other things they use for the fireplace like little dustpans and matches. 







The side table and lamp are both from White Home Collection in Wilton, NH.


The chandelier and curtains are from Ballard Designs and the wallcolor is Sparrow by Benjamin Moore.




And here is the room all lit up at night.


Mimi and rosy-cheeked little Lola snuggling up by the fire. 




 I have lots more photos of the rest of their home to share hopefully as the week goes on. I am just a wee bit behind on things, though (to say the least), after being gone all last week. I hope you all have a fabulous Monday!

Oh and I will be back tomorrow to announce the winner of the Silent Night/Holy Night Set!

  11. I have always been a huge fan of your decorating style. After realizing you were in Florence for a while, it all makes sense. LOL.

  13. Thanks for sharing! When I read you were in NH I was hoping Jamie's house pictures would be coming! You didn't disappoint. It is beautiful. Where do you get those moss balls - looks like they are also covered with some small leaves?

  14. It's good for me to read that you feel a bit jealous looking around Jamie and Josh's house, since that's how I feel looking around YOUR house! You added beautiful Christmas touches for them and I love seeing those pops of red. But the very best photo may be that one of Mimi holding little Lola. She's so sweet you want to eat her up!

  17. Always love your decorating style! Is that burlap ribbon around the tree? I used some burlap bags I got from our local feed store and cut 4" strips and made me a burlap garland. Love it and I love her house!

  18. Thanks so much, everybody!

    Sunny - I made these last year for Jamie with a sharpie, but we're definitely considering having screenprinted versions available in our shop next year!

    Betsy - I think she got them at an antique shop in Maine, but I'm not 100% positive.

    Gena - Yes! She and my mom both used it this year, and I really love how it looks!

  22. Jamie's house is gorgeous! You all are so talented in your family and have such an eye for design. Each and every detail is stunning. I am loving my Christmas pillows I bought from you! We receive so many compliments on them. They are a wonderful addition to our living room! That's a beautiful photo of Lola with your mom and also the one of Lillie.

  23. Jennifer, had to let you know that there is a blogger out there who just posted that she used your "Silent Night" template and made your pillow. Can she do that??? It doesn't seem fair. I saw her post and I'm like "No! That's Jennifer's pillow at Dear Lillie!!" The blogger is: hodgepodge-babselou.blogspot.com.

  29. Beautiful room. Any idea what the paint color is? It looks great with the furniture.

  30. It looks just wonderful! I love the paperwhites on the mantel, and the red and white ticking bows on the tree... the little pillow with the red drummer boy is the perfect touch of red with the rest. I really really like how everything looks so pulled together and uncluttered, yet so christmasy, especially with all the natural elements and the greenery... you guys just KNOW how to do pretty so well...
