After a cup or two of hot chocolate, night fell on the North Pole and the Misses showed me my room for the evening.  The rustic charm of the winter lodge living room continued into the guest bedroom.  The Potomac Signature Homes Holiday Lane bedroom is a cozy retreat with an oak four-poster bed adorned with garland and wrapped in red and green wool tartan duvet, matching plaid lampshades and quilted wreath.  Oak side tables and dresser, snowflake rug, and a sparkling frosted Christmas tree complete with quilted handmade tree skirt, candle and string lights, ornaments, poinsettia, and “spinning” silver snowflake topper welcomes and charms the bedroom. The Holiday Lane bedroom is available at the SL Christmas Expo 2014!

The side wall is decorated with Dreamscapes Art Gallery Christmas Forest wood trees which create the feeling of Christmas glow.  Finishing the bedroom is the comfy sage and poinsettia Jolly Velvet Chaise Couple Lounge, decked out with snowflake blankets and pillows by Circa Living and a charming holiday themed corner side table with wooden tree and Christmas signage by The Mustard Seed (both Homestuff Hunt gifts).

On our shopping trip, I picked up some cute Christmas lingerie.  First up is Carrie’s Lingerie Holiday Grace lace and silk poinsettia print bra and boyshorts, part of the Penny Wishes Hunt (a portion of the sale is donated to RFL) at the SL Christmas Expo 2014 AviChoice sim.  I accessorized the Carrie’s Holiday Grace set with Purple Moon Cycle in Emerald & Topaz Set (Hunt for the Bells- 100% proceeds donated to RFL) and Cucbis dans la Chocolaterie Bracelet & Ring (Naughty or Nice Hunt), both items available on Sim 1 at the SL Christmas Expo 2014 until December 15, 2014.  Wreath with teddy bear and trees by Potomac Signature Homes.

Aphrodite Shop | Family Christmas Tree FR

I have more Christmas home decor for you today, this time traditional elegant from Aphrodite Shop.  The design duo of Marina Ramer and Jaylin Whitewood have created a whole Christmas Village in their main store sim, check it out!  They have designed everything that you can think of for the holidays from ice-covered bungalows, Hanukkah living room complete with cultural foods, couples animated decorative trees, holiday dining room table large enough to fit all your friends, family and invited guests, and my favorite is the Glowing Warm Christmas Set.  The Christmas set includes a trio of creamy taupe large club style armchairs and sofa appointed with embroidered decorative pillows, a marble ornament fireplace with Christmas stockings, garland, Christmas tree prints, and wooden trunk with hot chocolate and cookies for Santa.  Aphrodite Shop offers two options for a corresponding Christmas Tree, one with family animation complete with props and kids/parents animations, and the other for couples.

I finished the room with Park Place holiday accessories consisting of animated Snow Globes in Mason Jars (exclusive for the SL Christmas Expo 2014), Sleigh Card Holder, Words For All Sign, Toy Solider, Candy Cane Wreath, and Holiday Corduroy Drum Ottoman.  I really like this interpretation of a traditional Christmas with a blending of modern lines in furniture and highlights of red and green appliqué.  If you’re looking for a living room ensemble that can meld into your home, consider the Aphrodite Shop Glowing Warm Christmas Living Room and matching Christmas tree, it’s really beautiful.

To create the quaint and charming homespun Christmas room I used Park Place English Study Set (Hunt for the Bells item, desk & chair with ottoman not shown) and Follow Us Sugar Snow Christmas Tree, Christmas Ginger Socks Fireplace, Santa’s Cookies & Milk Tray, Plum Pudding Sleigh, Christmas Wreath, Thanksgiving Cart, and Snowglobe Teddy (Hunt for the Bells).  The whimsical Follow Us Sugar Snow Christmas Tree with gingerbread men is one of my favorite Christmas trees presented this year, available in frosted and evergreen variety making the room cozy and warm.  To accent the style, I used exclusives found at the Expo including: Park Place animated snow globes in mason jars, Spyralle Folk Art Christmas Tree (Frost Green) & Christmas Black Enamel LanternTrue North Designs Small Poinsettia Bowl, PurpleMoon Seasonal Mesh Owl Xmas Spirit (Hunt for the Bells), and House of Avro Christmas Wreath with Bells. To finish the room, I added La Galleria Christmas Plaque w Bow (**free**), Park Place Words for All decorative accessory, and Serenity Styles Winter Rug.  There are over 95+ creators on 8 sim offering everything from fashion, jewelry, poses, home, and breedable friends.  After a long day styling the homespun room, I sat down to read a book while wearing Ever An’ Angel  Elegant Angle Gown in Cranberry and Purple Moon Cycle Set in Emerald & Topaz Jewelry (Hunt for the Bells).  Hope the homespun styling gives you inspiration and you head over to the SL Christmas Expo to spend lindens for a great cause.
