EMILY: Now, they wanted literally everything there, and shopping with two toddlers isn't exactly easy, but having them choose a couple ornaments made them feel very grown up. Charlie's favorite color is red, which makes our job pretty easy this time of year.
Emily hangs up a plush shark's head on Charlie's bedroom wall. A candy cane hangs from its smiling mouth. A panda's and zebra's heads hang next to it.
ON SCREEN TEXT: CHARLIE'S ROOM "CLASSIC"
EMILY: Working with the current theme of his room, we brought in a green artificial tree and then decked it out with a bunch of shatterproof ornaments.
Emily turns on the lights on two small artificial trees.
EMILY: The twinkle lights and the holiday sheets make him actually really excited to go to bed. Elliot is barely two.
Elliot, a blonde, pig-tailed toddler, shakes a snow globe excitedly.
EMILY: So she has less opinions, as of now, so I got to play out my fantasy holiday in her room.
Elliot's room again shows the small trees and splotched pink and white wall.
ON SCREEN TEXT: ELLIOT'S ROOM "GLAM"
EMILY: It's silver, gold, and white, with no shortage of blush. I clustered a few small, skinny trees together to create a mini-forest, and then I peppered them with kid-friendly ornaments I knew she would love.
Emily hangs a lettered string reading "Merry Christmas" on Elliot's bedroom wall.
EMILY: Then I scattered this pink and glam motif all around her room. She loves it, but just to be clear, I wish it was my room.
Various shots of the living room show a fireplace, old-fashioned record player, and Christmas stockings.
EMILY: The living room is the main area of our house, where we spend almost all of our time, so I wanted to go all out, but I wanted it to still feel neutral and calm and easy to maintain.
Emily adjusts wooden toy houses on the shelf where Christmas stockings hang.
EMILY: I went with a color palette of blues, grays, greens, silvers, blacks, and whites, and then I warmed it up with some wood and gold tones.
A wooden reindeer with a silver scarf around its neck adorns a white round table in the middle of the living room.
