This should also really be the focus of your Christmas decorations. Of course hanging stockings from the mantle is traditional. You could also have a lot of fun just by finding a quilted stocking or even sewing some that are either in red, white, and green colors or just play around with a lot of Christmas motifs like trees or berries.
Having said that if you do have the money to purchase some new furniture then that is a lot more fun. It is important to set a budget though prior to looking as you know what it is like when you are out shopping and you get carried away with what you see.
Consult your color wheel to choose an appropriate color scheme. Keep the colors in the same family unless your theme is rainbow. Sometimes contrast looks awesome. For instance a brightly colored, woven bohemian blanket would pop nicely against a modern, stark white couch.
If your chosen themes accommodate one another, you can create a unifying theme. Consider this: your spouse wants an Asian theme, your teenage daughter wants a gothic theme and you want a tropical theme. In such varied combination you may decide to do an around-the-world theme in your living room; this is like a miniature version of Disney's Epcot. You could incorporate Asian tropic plants, dragons and samurai swords that would incorporate all three themes. The point is, regardless of the themes, there is common ground to be found.
Lamp shades are a great way of influencing light if you already have the right light fittings. You don't need to buy expensive lamp shades, just think about the likely effect on the room and make your decision from there.
