Give your stocking 3-D flair with house letter embellishments. Choose a specific style stocking, then decide on a coordinating font and finish. For a classic, masculine appeal, add a tarnished brass X to a plaid stocking with gold thread and a needle. Since the thread and house letter are similar in tone, the thread virtually disappears, resulting in a seamless, tailored look.

This living room boasts a quaint yet sophisticated style, featuring green plaid curtains, a stone fireplace and a mix of neutral armchairs. Green vases on the mantle display flowers and complement the drapery. One patterned chair adds interest and texture to the space.
