We moved our youngest daughter to Chicago recently and allowed her to take some of the living room furniture. We also removed a very bulky old computer desk that was in the living room for about 15 years. We are now left with a "hodgepodge" mix of leftover items we already have to fill in the space.

Suggestions

This room needs a few holiday touches to build upon the romantic start of the room. Add a beautiful 7.5-foot Frosted Elegance artificial Christmas tree in the corner. The tree stands on its own beauty and doesn't even require decorating. A custom-designed table piece can be placed on the side table and adds to the Christmas romance. Finally, bring the smell of Christmas to the room by burning Thymes Frasier Fir Candles. They not only look beautiful, they are one our favorite Christmas scents, guaranteed to bring the holiday spirit to your space.
