Our comfy and rustic Christmas basement tour!

Hello there! I’m joining in with a few of my blog friends to share one of our favorite rooms dressed up for the holidays! If you are new to TDC, welcome and if you are coming back, thank you! πŸ˜ƒ You can see more from each of the ladies joining in at the end of this post. 
I was super into decorating our basement for Christmas this year! I’ve painted the walls in here a cozy dark gray, and I kept going with that comfy vibe with the decorations. 
We have a huge, SUPER comfy sectional down here that’s the centerpiece of the space:

Do you think we have enough pillows? I’m not sure. 
I mentioned those faux leather pillow covers in my favorite things post this year — I got them for our family room and loved them so much I got a couple more for down here as well. They look so good for the cooler months especially. (I’ll link those and everything else at the end of the post.)
This room was the perfect spot for my DIY Santa hat cones

Three Santa hat craft cones
That cute craft went nuts all those years ago when I made them. They still look great ELEVEN (whoa) years later!
I shared the tree last week — it’s my favorite one in the house. I especially love the adorable berry and popcorn garland: 
Christmas tree dark gray walls
I have BIG plans for that side of the room — I’ve known what I want to do since before we moved in. Just need to find the time… and money. πŸ˜‰ 
That cute reindeer and Santa garland was from Michael’s and I thought the map was the perfect spot to hang it!:

Here’s a better look at our stairs down to the basement:

You can see more about that gallery wall here and the inexpensive wood planked wall here

This is our view as we walk down the stairs: 

Table on wall with sconce
That bamboo table was a second hand find that I fixed up — we used to use it as a bar cart. It may turn back into that eventually. 
I plan a to add some more details to these walls next year, but the dark gray has really made a big difference in here. We love it!: 
Dark gray walls Christmas family room
That giant IKEA map art is one of my favorite finds ever. Unfortunately they don’t see this one anymore, but they still have this version. (I’ll include a couple other options below as well.):
Red, white and black Christmas pillows on sofa
The nine prints on the wall are all Disney art. They have a retro look that I love: 
Large gray sectional with chaise
If you missed those adorable fluffy trees on the table you can see how I made those here
We spend most of our evenings down here from November to March. It’s our little cocoon away from the world!:
