My holiday home tour

Welcome to my Christmas Home Tour. Some of my blogger friends from Instagram and I have joined to bring you great ideas for decorating your home for the Holidays. I know you wouldn’t want to miss these tours: Happy Happy Nester, Crazy Chic Design, 2 Ladies and a Chair, Too Chic for Words, Home and Fabulous, Meme Hill, Designs by Laila and Oscar Bravo Home.
Now, come on in and let me show you around our humble abode!
When we bought our 1938 home we feel in love the rustic bricks on the porch. Although it is a tiny area, I love adding a small details that will speak of the current season. I created this swag using some leftover branches from pine trees, green ribbons and some old ornaments from previous holidays. Sugar pine cones add the finishing touches to this area.

 

On the front door a +HomeGoods wreath with added silver ornaments dictates what I’ve used as a concept for this year’s Christmas decor. While standing here you’ll noticed how I’ve used natural elements to bring in a fresh look with the used of different greeneries.

 

Over the console at the left I’ve placed a small pine tree inside a bronze round vase, a couple of deer from last year +The Home Depot  Holiday Challenge and some more pine cones.

 

On the right side corner you’ll see our tree full of more green accents, but still I found a way to add some sparkling details. For this task I used ornaments that sort of replicate the look of mercury glass and a silver color ribbon from +Michaels Stores. I also added some dry hydrangeas and silk “lamp ear’s” leaves to keep adding to the fresh look of this room.

 

Over our mantle lies a needle like pine tree garland to which I’ve added some magnolia leaves from our garden and a couple of crystal branches from +Michaels Stores. This will make it look fuller and sparkly whenever the sun hits this way.

 

When we bought our home they told us that the fireplace didn’t work. For now I’m fine with that, but to create an illusion of some sort of warmth in this area I simply put a couple of birch logs wrapped with led lights inside this nook. This way I get rid of the awkward opening besides creating a vignette opportunity.

 

Moving on to the dinning area, a simple centerpiece created from candlesticks, more magnolia leaves, green ornaments and tiny pine cones was all that that this table needed (oh, and also Bella peeking out for the shot).

 

The kitchen is one of those areas that many of us tend to forget when decorating. You can check out how I added a festive look to mine here.


I hope you’ve enjoyed this tour. Don’t forget to pay a visit to my friends (Happy Happy NesterCrazy Chic Design2 Ladies and a ChairToo Chic for WordsHome and FabulousMeme HillDesigns by Laila and Oscar Bravo Home) and let me know what was your favorite part of our home.

    Oh wow Sara, what a bundle of fabulous words! Thank you so much for visiting and yes, green is my favorite color all year around; but it becomes more predominant during Christmas. In all of its hues and tones, green makes a space feel relax and fresh. I'm so happy you've like my approach to my holiday decor. Merry Christmas!
