Our youngest son moved out in July and we gave him our 15-year-old furniture. We have not found the cozy, casual and comfortable furniture I would like to fill this space. Please help!

Suggestions

Bring this room to life for Christmas. The Bodega Bay collection wreath and garland are perfect pieces to add holiday charm. Think outside the box by placing a wreath on the wrought iron picture and the garland on the side table combined with candles for unexpected placement of traditional Christmas decor. For an elegant touch, add a 7.5-foot Slim Wexford artificial Christmas tree decorated with platinum floral picks placed in the corner. Finally, a collection of a reindeer, a feather tree and candles on a gold and beige runner is perfect for the coffee table.
