Christmas Living

Photos by Kaity

What Houzz contributors are saying:

A 12-foot artificial tree — a Craigslist find — is just the right scale for the living room. Sheer curtains and windows along an entire wall let in plenty of natural light. Hopper windows let in fresh air. Accent walls in a chocolate brown and bright blue celebrate Freng's love of color. "It's a cheerful room, and the colors are pretty atypical for Michigan," says Freng. "But I don't really care. I'm not one to play by the rules."Brown paint: Craft Paper, Sherwin-Williams; blue paint: Caribbean Blue Water, Benjamin Moore; floors: oak, original to the house
