Welcome to my home! Since I love to take a peak into other homes ~ especially at the holidays, i thought it was only fair for me to open my home to you. I love to peak in and get inspired to try new things or I see an idea that I simply must do in my own home. Maybe a peak inside my homer will do that for you. I hope so! So, welcome to my Christmas Home Tour.
As you walk into my home, you’re greeted by this tree. I’ve covered it in green and gold with touches of burlap and red. You can see from here into my dining room, so come on in.
Here’s my dining room. I love my farmhouse table that I bought in Round Top. This year, I’ve added this fun ornament garland to the table. If you’ve ever admired the look of these ornament garlands, you MUST make one. It is the easiest project in the history of ever. #forreal
For the table, I’ve mixed silver and gold. I set the table wth gold chargers and gold flatware. However, I pulled out the silver candlesticks for the center of the table. I don’t think you have to stick with one metal. For the runner, I used this buffalo check wrapping paper. It’s a festive look without being too formal. In addition, wrapping paper makes a totally affordable runner!
Also, this year, I added these prints to the wall. Don’t you think they’re fun? I feel like it will be fun to change out the prints for the different holidays or occasions. It would be cool to personalize them for someone’s birthday, right? And, it’s super easy – I just print them out on my printer.
In the opposite corner you will find one my Annalee elves. I have actually accumulated quite a collections of these, but this year, only one is stopping by.
Moving right along… you enter my family room ~ I guess technically it’s the living room. Here’s where I have my traditional tree. Sentimental ornaments and the ones we’ve collected over the years fill this tree. This has always been our Santa tree done in red and covered in various Santa’s. Each year I would add an ornament for each of my boys. Eventually, their ornaments will leave my tree and give them a jump on decorating their own trees.
This coffee table was made from salvaged wood from England. It’s OLD and it looks it, but I love it. What I really love is that I never worry about anyone damaging it. 🙂
My master got its own little bit of Christmas. This year I was thrilled to put up a tree and covered it in white. I think its soft and romantic ~ especially with the lights.
Why don’t we head upstairs to the game room. Along the way, let’s admire this beautiful garland. I love the smell of the fresh greens, but I will admit that daily spraying with water is hard to remember.
Up here is where we play games or shuffleboard. This year I treated the white tree to metallic ornaments. I’ve never done a tree like this before. Historically I’ve always had this tree decked out in bright colors for my kids. However, this year I thought I’d try something a little different. And you know what? I really like it. So, don’t be afraid to branch out and try something new.
I love to deck the halls for the holidays. It’s one of my favorite things to do. So, I hope you’ve enjoyed today’s tour and a little peak into how we do Christmas at my house. Happy holidays friends!
Until next time ~
