Please help me! There is no furniture other than two, 25-year-old chairs and an old dresser. I have no idea how to utilize this space or decorate this room. It is a clean room and ready to get an identity. I'm open to any ideas or designs.

Bring the beauty of nature to this room for Christmas with the "modern farmhouse" style. The room has a great natural stone fireplace perfect for the Treetime Aspen wreath and garland set. Its very fast and easy to add floral and greenery picks and a beautiful bow to these pieces and the results look amazing. Place a lantern topped with "birch" ribbon, white flowers and greenery at the hearth. The lantern topper can be changed out for every season.

The traditional shape of the Treetime 7½-foot Stockton Spruce is perfect for placement in the corner. Decorate the tree in the modern farmhouse style by using white, gray and platinum floral picks, ribbon and stems.
