2014 Christmas Home Tour

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!

  8. The Christmas season looks fabulous when spent in a golden way. I just love everything you did for your home during that season. Every detail was sprung to perfection, and the centerpiece on the bistro table looks so lovely. I bet everybody who entered and greeted your home felt a pang of jealousy, seeing how lovely it is. Thanks for sharing that, Mallori! All the best to you! :)
