It’s easy to make a cozy Christmas living room feel inviting with accents, such as throw pillows and blankets. I diligently scoured through hundreds of budget-friendly ideas for you. Surprisingly, I found just a few of my favorites.
Because they are seasonal it doesn’t make sense to spend a ton of money on Holiday accents. That’s why here I’m making suggestions for inexpensive Holiday decor, pillows, and throws in particular.
I’ve paired them for you in terms of colors and styles. Enjoy!

Cozy soft and textural white and gray
White and gray always makes a room feel fresh. Add some textures instead of bright colors to create more dimension. By the way, you can use these for much longer than the holiday season.
Winter spirit in navy, white and gray
Navy, blue with white and gray refers to all winter holidays, not only Christmas.
Unique and adventurous
Tired of the images of the pine trees? Here is a cute alternative to make a cozy Chrismas living room even cozier.
Traditional red and white with a modern twist
Craving traditional red and white for Christmas? Here goes. A red solid pillow will add a visual focus while the other pillow tassels give you fun elements. Notice that the fabrics are updated to a modern lifestyle.
Luxury set- red, white and gray
These accents look like they are made very well. They are bright and cheery.
Simple and painterly but yet still cozy
Want something different? If you like a simple watercolor look that feels handpainted, consider these accents.
Textured combo with gray as the main color
Smooth and silky that works with beige
If you have a lot of beige colors in the living room consider this combo. Muted blues always work with beige.
Modern and glamorous
Add bling with a luxurious throw blanket and toss some pillows for modern bling.
Rustic and handmade
Is your house a farmhouse style or country? These elements feel handmade and crafted by a human with special care.
Doggy loving home
Do you love dogs? This cute dog pillow will instantly add charm to any decor.
Not so much red, please
Gold, taupe and beige can also look quite festive if you are not loving red and gray.
As you can see it is possible to exude a Holiday mood with minimal accents.
Black and white
If a black- and-white room is your jam here are some options for you.
How about the kiddoes? This baby’s outfit is adorable, I just couldn’t resist and posted it. And the throw blanket is so fine! Finally, give the kids some straight forward and clear Chrismas symbols they crave, such as a Snowman.
All my life I’m wondering about a picture-perfect scene where a family gathers in a cozy Chrismas living room! Does it exist in real life? Or is it a Pinterest fairy tale to make us dream but also feel like our homes are so-not-good-enough? Tell me. For example, my husband falls asleep as soon as you put him under a cozy blanket. By the way, I’m guilty of that as well.
As far as kids go, when they were little they wouldn’t sit still for an iconic “cozy Chrismas living room” picture. They would run around unless it was for a ten -minute photo shoot with a candy bribe as a reward right in front of them.
How about you? Please DO post your REAL cozy Christmas living room pictures. I’m dying to get to know you better, my friend!
P.S. Oh, I forgot! Here are the holiday essentials!
