Welcome back to my Holiday Home! Today I’m inviting you back into my living room to show you my second Christmas tree of 2020. Grab a cup of tea or coffee, nestle in, and enjoy the tour.

2020 Living Room Christmas Tree

It’s always a fun day for me when I get to share one of my Christmas tree designs with you. If you can believe it, this is my 12th year of blogging during the Christmas season. It blows my mind. If you’ve been following along since then, you’ll know I’ve shared a newly designed tree (or often times two) every year. I put together a post HERE with 16+ of my best Christmas tree designs.

For the 2020 season, I have two new tree designs: My Red and White Christmas Tree, which I shared with you HERE, and today I’m back with my Living Room Christmas Tree. (Yes, I couldn’t really decide on a name for this one, so we’re going with 2020 Living Room Christmas Tree. So creative! Ha.)

Last week, you might have caught a teaser of my 2020 Living Room Christmas Tree design when I shared my mantel and bookcase decor. (You can see that HERE if you missed it.) And today I’m finally prepared for the big reveal. Without further suspense, let’s take a look!

I couldn’t be more pleased with how this tree came together and how beautifully it works in this space. It’s actually quite interesting because this was not the tree I had planned to do in this room.

Originally, I wanted to bring back my rainbow gradient tree while giving it a more traditional look. I tried and tried, but something in my gut told me it just wasn’t going to work in this space. I think I was right. So, I switched gears and this is what I came up with instead. I’m so glad I did.

I also wanted to make a quick note about sources and links for items on this particular tree.

Living Room Christmas Tree Sources:

Typically I get a lot of questions about where to find certain ornaments or decorative items. However, for this tree I don’t have many links to share with you. This tree came together with a lot of things I already had on hand or things that I found locally that aren’t available online. I will link whatever I can. If it’s not linked, it’s safe to assume I do not have a source.

Also, if you’re curious about my cabinetry / mantel decor you can check out this post HERE. You can’t see much of the living room, but if you’re looking for general living room sources / paint colors, check out the end of this post HERE. I hope that helps!

Living Room Christmas Tree Details:

After my failed attempt at the rainbow gradient tree, I pulled inspiration for my color palette from the artwork above my mantel which just so happens to work lovely with the rest of the room. I stuck with greens, blues, and aquas, and grounded everything with white, sliver, and just a touch of gold.

As I mentioned above, I used a lot of the ornaments I had on hand. The ribbon and the big white stars are new and I found them at a local store in Pittsburgh.

From there I added in large mercury glass ornaments that I tucked deep into the tree to create depth.

I wanted this tree to have a pop of color so I filled in sporadically with the green, blue, and aqua ornaments. A lot of these ornaments came from the navy blue tree I did several years back. (Yes, the actual tree branches were navy blue. It was so fun! Check it out HERE.)

Blue, Green, and White Living Room Christmas Tree #christmastree #christmas #holiday #tree #decor #decorating #livingroom #christmasdecor

When I shared my mantel decor last week, you could see I used a lot of pinecones in the design. Therefore, I decided to pull that same theme into the tree. I have a fairly large collection of glass pinecone ornaments (a lot them are from last year’s Woodland Glam tree), so I filled the tree with those. I even included mini versions of the large white-tipped pinecones used on my mantel. I just sat them on branches throughout the tree.

I also like to add a few quirky elements to my tree. This year I included a felt merman, because I thought he was just the cutest.

Although this tree is completely different from my Red and White Christmas Tree in the other room, I like to have some element that ties the two together. Did you notice which ornaments were the same?

I was in love with these beaded snowflake ornaments from Balsam Hill, so I decided to use them on both trees. Fun fact: When I went to order more for this tree they were sold out (and still are). For a solution to my problem, I decided to purchase the matching beaded snowflake garland, cut the snowflakes off of it, and then just use the snowflakes on the tree. I made it work!

My tree topper is new and it’s from CB2. It’s actually still in stock and reasonably priced. You can find it HERE.

Underneath the tree I used a chunky knit tree skirt which I found at HomeGoods last year. I also wrapped some faux presents to act as decor.

As per usual, I like to add some unexpected treasures under the tree. I’ve been loving picnic baskets under my tree, so I added in another one here. I also used a spool of chunky yarn and this vintage black lunch box that I found while antiquing earlier this year. I love how the black ties in with the hardware and lights on my bookcase.

I also wanted to share another fun feature of this Christmas Tree. This is the 7″ Silverado Slim Twinkly Light Show Tree from Balsam Hill. With this particular model I can control every single light on the tree from an app in my phone. You can also create light shows like twinkles, moving patterns, etc.

I often get asked how to decorate a tree with colored lights so I thought it would be fun to show you this tree as an example.

Blue, Green, and White Living Room Christmas Tree #christmastree #christmas #holiday #tree #decor #decorating #livingroom #christmasdecor

Here I’m using the “rainbow setting” from the app. The rainbow gradient slowly moves up and down the tree. It’s so fun! (It’s difficult to show the light show here, so be sure to follow me on Instagram HERE. I will be showing you how it works there.)

Blue, Green, and White Living Room Christmas Tree #christmastree #christmas #holiday #tree #decor #decorating #livingroom #christmasdecor

My answer on how to decorate a tree with colored lights is to do it the same way you’d decorate a tree with white lights. I’m traditionally a white lights person, but I think the colored lights in this tree are just as beautiful. You can see how beautiful the tree looks with white or colored lights. You do you!

And with the presents tucked under the tree, I’d say that’s a wrap on another Inspired by Charm Christmas Tree!!

As I mentioned above, it’s always such a joy to share my trees with you. I have to say that coming up with 2-3 new designs every year can be a bit much (not to mention expensive), but I know how many of you enjoy seeing something new every year, so I do it for YOU.

I sincerely hope you enjoy the design and that it inspires you to get creative and have fun with your own tree.

And as a final treat for you, meet Leo (aka Little One). He’s a new addition to my little fur family. I couldn’t be more excited to show him here.

This little spot on the back of the couch is one of his favorites so I couldn’t resist snapping a couple pictures. Bonus points to you if you happened to have spotted him hiding out in one of the posts above.

Regardless, I have lots more to share with you in the days leading up to Christmas, so be sure to check back often. If you want to be sure you don’t miss anything, you can subscribe to the Inspired by Charm Mailing List HERE.

    Your trees this year are stunning, Michael! I found your blog several years ago because of your trees and stuck around to see everything else you do. You inspired me to try ribbon on my tree for the first time this year and I love how it came out! Thank you for all the work and thought you put into your Christmas decor.

  • Colleen at

    Michael your living room turned out amazing!! that photo with the roaring fire is so everything. I hope you love it, I think I would never leave that room. The shelves are gorgeous and a great addition to the room. And welcome Leo!!

  • susan at

    As always, BEAUTIFUL! I love the colors! How long does it take you to decorate a tree like that😱

  • Tami from SD at

    You have such a touch with your trees!! They are just beautiful!! Our family tree is a hodgepodge of family ornaments, and our second tree is decorated wtih my husband’s Crooner Collection (Sinatra, Dean Martin) as well as his Hallmark car and pickup collection. Since we don’t have a gorgeous themed tree, I can live vicariously through yours! Thank you for showing a close up of the fawn ornament, I caught a glimpse in one of the early photos and wanted to see more. And welcome, Leo!! Such a sweet face. I think your house is my favorite on all the internet!! 🙂 Merry Christmas!!

  • Denise at

    You are a genius! Your trees (and home) are always an inspiration. Thank you for sharing your talents with us.

  • Penny Thomas at

    Love everything you do, Michael! Your trees are absolutely gorgeous and I added ribbon to my tree this year, thanks to you; however, I can’t keep my eyes off the nubby three-tree pillow on the couch! Any idea where you purchased that? It’s fabulous!

  • Diana at

    Michael, every year you move the bar higher and higher. You have such a gift and I’m so glad you share it with all of us! I would never leave this room. The colors are so soothing and the special touches throughout are magical. Welcome Leo! I wonder if he’s spotted the yard under the tree. I hope Leo’s adventures are featured in your Instagram stories. Merry Christmas!

  • Susan at

    Beautiful tree, beautiful room, beautiful you. Thanks for all the fun things you share.

  • Lauren SCHMIDT at

    Michael, your tree is just lovely! It’s funny because I thought your inspiration might have been your new mantel artwork and a few lines after thinking that, I read your comment. I love how all the colors create a peaceful,cohesive vibe. Beautiful! Merry Christmas.

  • Marla at

    My heart be still looking at this gorgeous tree! Love every detail.

  • Maria Oxender at

    It is so,so beautiful! I love the colors you used. It blends so well with everything in the room, down to the beautiful blanket your mother knitted for you. I agree with one of the other commenters…I would have a hard time leaving that room.

  • Julie J at

    I’ll take my cocoa on the couch next to Leo, please! Your whole room is so pretty, and thank you for the idea to put fun things under the tree. I’m going to try adding a red lantern and a basket among the few gifts we have. That will really jazz things up! Great tip!

  • Jan Francis at

    MERRY CHRISTMAS Michael! Thank you for everything you share with us all!

  • Kristen P at

    Once again you created a gorgeous tree! I loved how you let us follow along with the process this year. It was so fantastic to see you post about the ribbon and giant stars earlier and now see how you brought it all together. You truly have a gift!!

  • Beth Johnson at

    This tree makes my heart sing! It’s traditional with a touch of modern color and I love it. I tend to more traditional decor for Christmas and my main tree is reds/whites but I have a small pencil tree in my second living space that is just lights for now. Planning to take inspiration straight from this tree. Thanks for sharing your amazing tree designing talent!

  • Linda at

    Beautiful! Thanks for sharing and giving such great inspiration each season.

  • Colette at

    Absolutely beautiful!

  • Marla at

    You inspired me to put ribbon on my tree last year; I will be doing it every year now. Also to use some things that aren’t “gifts” under the tree. I am a cat person so I spotted Leo right away! He’s a cutie and obviously feels right at home. Your tree is gorgeous and just compliments this beautiful space.

  • Trey at

    Wow! Just when I thought your trees couldn’t be any better! You really outdid yourself! The tree is absolutely gorgeous against the new cabinetry and fireplace! Love the non “traditional” color scheme. Wish I could come over! Merry Christmas from Arkansas!

  • Kelli R at

    Another amazing tree! Thank you so much for all of the inspiration you provide for us year-round and especially during the holidays!

  • Beverly D at

    So beautiful!

  • Jan at

    You did it AGAIN!! I love seeing everything you create – especially at Christmas. Thank you. So glad Leo came into your life.

  • jae at

    The tree is incredible, the decor is lovely as always….you have such a great sense of style…., but the best part to me is Adorable Leo! What a precious furball. Hope you will share more pictures of him. He certainly appears to have made himself at home! Merry Christmas!

  • Sarah at

    Your living is absolutely gorgeous, and the Christmas tree is so stunning! The colored lights on it add such a unique touch! When my kids were younger they always wanted to deck out the Christmas tree, but now we try to decorate more minimally because it’s hard work! So, I admire the effort you put into this beautiful tree. My favorite part of decorating during the holiday season is getting my upholstery cleaned, fluffing up the holiday pillows on the couch, and taking a nap after all of the decorating is complete!

  • Amy Hendrix at

    Everything about your room is gorgeous! Thank you for sharing with all of us and Merry Christmas!

  • Kathleen at

    The tree turned out beautiful and looks so nice in that spot. Did your mom make the throw after you did the tree? The colors in it go so well with the decorations on the tree. Such a great picture of Leo, he is a cutie.

  • Cara S. at

    Thank you, Michael! This post is definitely a gift! You are so talented and inspiring. May you take some time to relax and enjoy the Season, too! Merry Christmas!

  • Caroline at

    This is so beautiful, Michael. Gorgeous. Your home is so inviting! And I’m so very glad you got little Leo.

  • Mary at

    Your tree is so lovely this year, as are all of your creations. My favorite is still the Woodland Glam for your entrance hall…the owls, deer, buck, pheasants, cuckoo clock, pinecones, and that gorgeous tree topper. Not to mention the way you put the turquoise balls on it to draw it all together. You always put more than just round balls on your trees. How you took ornaments from one year and incorporated them into this year is a reminder to us that you can be economical as well. I am reminded about the difference in an artist and a crafts person…an artist does only one of a kind and it comes from the heart, whereas a craftsman reproduces the same thing over and over, and it comes from the hands and mind. You are truly an artist in all you do. Wishing you a very Merry Christmas.

  • Deb Fields at

    Michael, you inspire me. Another beautiful creation. The extra special details like the basket, black lunch box and baby deer ornament show how much of yourself put into the total creation!

  • Pam Capone at

    I love this tree, the colors are stunning. I’m in love with your living room.

  • nancy at

    Darn it! No bonus points for me. How did I miss him?!

    • nancy at

      I know how. The decorations are too beautiful to not be distracting!

  • Dawn at

    What a stunning tree ~ my favorite colors are blues and aquas! The entire room is so gorgeous and that tree is simply perfect in your space. Leo is a cutie! Thank you for sharing your beautiful Christmas decor!

  • Bonnie at

    What a beautiful tree Michael! I’m constantly impressed with your creativity, thank you for sharing it with us. And welcome to Leo, who I did spot and is adorable. Question for you, maybe worth a blog post: how do you keep your kitties away from your wonderful trees? We’ve recently welcome two 5 month old kittens into our family (tabbies just like Leo) and are unsure how to decorate our tree with them around. We have an artificial tree with lights and garland on it, but no ornaments yet because I’m too nervous to hang them. Would love your expert tips on this!

    • Michael Wurm, Jr. at

      I honestly wish I had a tip for you, but so far my cats have never bothered my trees. Ever. *knocks on wood* There may be a random fallen ornament from time to time, but they generally don’t bother them. Maybe I’m just lucky?

      xo Michael

      • Bonnie at

        haha, maybe! ours aren’t horrible, but they’re definitely chewing on the branches and one has climbed the tree a bit. I’m on point with the water spray though, so that may be deterring them. We went for it and put ornaments on yesterday, so fingers crossed. 🙂

  • Emily at

    I love everything about this room. My own style is not nearly this sophisticated, but I would love to come home to this. I’m pretty sure I would just remove the stockings after Christmas, keep the tree up, and call it my winter tree for a little while longer. It’s just beautiful.

  • Ornaments at

    You always put more than just round balls on your trees. How you took ornaments from one year and incorporated them into this year is a reminder to us that you can be economical as well. The colored lights on it add such a unique touch! When my kids were younger they always wanted to deck out the Christmas tree, but now we try to decorate more minimally because it’s hard work.
