2014 Christmas Home Tour

Link party holiday house walk tag


Welcome to our Christmas Home Tour! This is our second year in our new house for Christmas. We are slowly making our house a home, one decorating project at a time.


As you enter our front doors a two-story foyer greets you, along with a gold tree and garland draped on the staircase. (I wrote individual posts about each space on this tour so click on the links for more images.)



This year I changed the garland on our staircase railing for a more natural draped look. I started out with plain green garland, then added lights and sprigs of faux pine all throughout the garland for a more natural look. For the finishing touches I added real magnolia leaves and a gold bow.



At night the glow from the foyer tree and garland lights are so beautiful looking in from the outside. 


The living room is straight ahead from the foyer. It's a cozy room that we spend a lot of time relaxing as a family. This is the space we gather for TV and movie watching. On cold nights it's nice to light a fire and stay warm while drinking hot cocoa. 



A natural themed tree is decorated with grapevine branches, twigs, pine cones, burlap ribbon, and birds. 



The mantel is adorned with pine garland, magnolia leaves, driftwood, and our burlap stockings. I'm excited to add a third stocking this year for our baby girl that's due in January!



This is the view from the opposite side of the living room looking into the kitchen.


The  kitchen and dining nook area are open to the living room.


On the hood vent you can see a natural boxwood wreath that's used throughout the year with a large metal ornament added.


The kitchen dining area is kept understated with a sheet music table runner, my Christmas china, vintage glassware, and an ironstone dish and boxwood ball as the centerpiece.



The dining room is right off the kitchen. It's sprinkled with bits of green, red, and plaid for Christmas. I've enjoyed adding a little color to our overall neutral house just for the season. 



Here's a closer look at the concrete statue that I recently found at an estate sale. It takes the spotlight on the buffet surrounded by greenery, pine cones, and red berries. 




I love the versatility of our large wooden dough bowl on the dining room table, it's perfect for decorating as each season changes. 




Lastly, lets head to the simply decorated master bedroom with a natural wreath that I made to hang on our antique mirrored doors.




Thank you so much for visiting our Christmas Home Tour. 

Merry Christmas!

Christmas Living Room & Mantel

Today I'm sharing the one room in our house that we spend a lot of time relaxing as a family. We gather here for TV and movie watching. On cold nights we get cozy by lighting a fire and drinking hot cocoa.


I kept the natural themed tree pretty much the same as last Christmas with grapevine branches, twigs, pine cones, burlap ribbon, and birds. 




The mantel is adorned with pine garland, magnolia leaves, driftwood, and our burlap stockings. I'm excited to add a third stocking this year for our baby girl that's due in January! I cannot wait to decorate a tree for her room next year.




This cased opening to the left leads to our foyer and front door and the door to the right leads to our nursery which is a straight shot to our master bedroom across the living room.


This is the view from the opposite side of the living room looking into the kitchen. I've enjoyed adding a little color to our overall neutral house just for the season. 


Now that I'm finished sharing our home decorated for the holidays, I'll be joining several annual Christmas Home Tours in the days ahead.

Christmas Kitchen

I hope you have been enjoying this Christmas season. This past week I attended an annual Christmas lunch party at a dear friends house and we went and saw my niece perform in our town's local Nutcracker performance. Both have put me more in the Christmas spirit! 



I've also had fun around our house rearranging and pulling out more Christmas decor just to see what I could use with what I already had on hand. 



On the hood vent you can see a natural boxwood wreath that's used throughout the year with a large metal ornament added, along with mercury glass balls added to the boxwood topiary on the kitchen counter and a glittery reindeer. Really simple and understated.


The kitchen dining area first came together by incorporating my Christmas china, then adding sheet music as a table runner, and vintage glassware with an ironstone casserole dish and boxwood ball as the centerpiece. 


I love the simplicity of this mainly green table setting mixed with the vintage black and white sheet music. 



You can see the dining room straight ahead. Click here to see more of the dining room decorated for the holidays.


Up next is our living room and mantel. Stay tuned for that post later this week.

Christmas Dining Room


Today I'm back to reveal our dining room sprinkled with a little Christmas cheer. I incorporated bits of green, red, and plaid to simply decorate this space. 


I added one of my recent estate sale finds to our buffet to change it up a bit. The concrete figure takes the spotlight on our buffet surrounded by greenery, pine cones, and red berries. 


I love the versatility of our large wooden dough bowl on the dining room table, it's perfect for decorating as each season changes. 


I used simple white plates, neutral napkins tied with red plaid ribbon, and my over sized plaid blanket scarf cut into two pieces was just perfect for draping in the side chairs with neutral pillows. Now I have two red plaid scarves to wear or decorate with! 



I have a few changes in the works for our dining room including a furniture makeover, an ironstone collection, and a possible antique chandelier switch. I'll share more about that on a later post.

Christmas Foyer

Today I'm back sharing more of our home decorated for Christmas. This gold themed tree greets you first thing when you enter our front door. 


This year we decided to buy a new foyer tree since our other one was over 10 years old, massive, and not pre-lit. We found this 9 foot tree for a great deal at Walmart and love that it's so easy to assemble.  


I like to add baskets at the bottom of our trees to fill in those bare spots where the limbs don't touch the floor. The natural texture of these baskets add so much to the tree along with the plaid gift wrap and burlap bows.


This year I changed the garland on our staircase railing for a more natural draped look. I started out with plain green garland, then added lights and sprigs of faux pine all throughout the garland for a more natural look. For the finishing touches I added real magnolia leaves and a gold bow. 


This is the view of the foyer from the dining room looking upstairs.


At night the glow from the foyer tree and garland lights are so beautiful looking in from the outside.  



I'll soon be sharing more rooms from around our home decorated for the holidays.
