Joyful Holiday Home Tour
Welcome friends to the Joyful Holiday Home Tour!
I have teamed up with 7 other AMAZING bloggers to take you on a tour through our homes decorated for the holidays! At the end of this post you’ll see a link to the next stop on the tour which will continue tomorrow and run through December 5. You can also follow each of our accounts on Instagram and see our Joyful Holiday Home Tour pin board on Pinterest.
I’m so happy you’re here! If you’re following the tour in order, you just came from Marci’s beautiful house from www.lemonstolovelys.com. I love the way she used pops of red in her bedroom! I’m also completely obsessed with her mantel (which you have to SEE). So incase you missed it you can see it here.
Our home is not big, so we really use every inch of it which is why I love making every area feel comfy, special and inviting. This time of year is the most magical! Now, let me show you around our 1930’s Cape Cod style home. I’m taking you through our side door so we’ll walk through our farmer’s porch. I love using rustic and repurposed items around the home like this old window frame and enamel pot for kindling. I always wonder what the delivery people think when they leave the boxes here, because you know they’re here A LOT. Hopefully they enjoy my efforts and don’t think I’m crazy.

On to the kitchen from here, we recently renovated and opened the dining room/ kitchen into one big room. The view below is exactly where a wall used to be. It’s so nice being able to cook and talk to family as they visit. I added some green boxwood wreaths on the back of my bar stools with some inexpensive garland I found in the dollar spot at Target. I simply wrapped it around mason jar lids and added a decorative ribbon!

Since our living room is a bright wall color (Benjamin Moore/ Sea Brook). I try to stick to white, woods, neutrals and pops of red. My curtains were also a bold patterned but I just recently hung drop clothes as neutral curtains. It was so easy and inexpensive. This year we decided to go for a faux tree. All my life we enjoyed fresh pine trees but they never last as long as we want to enjoy them for. I love the flocked tree look and we got ours at Lowes here
Instead of using lots of little ornaments I tried using larger objects and snowflakes to give it a rustic wintery-y look.
