The Christmas tree right inside the front door is such a welcoming display to greet guests and establish a festive tone for the house. In a room that might appear severe, the softening effects of the tree are especially welcome.
Some rooms are at their best during the holidays. This one, with its rich wood furniture and grand stone floor, lends itself to the exuberance of holiday decor.
Think outside the living room for your tree. If there's space, a dining room or entry hall can benefit from the decoration.
