Joyful Holiday Home Tour 2017
I’m so happy you’re here to see my home decorated for Christmas. I’ve teamed up with a few other talented home decor bloggers and we hope to inspire you in your own home this season. If you are coming from Hayley The Mountain View Cottage, isn’t her home stunning?! She knows how to create a warm cozy space. Let’s get started, turn up that Christmas music, grab a hot cocoa and kick up your feet as we show you, all the ways we’ve sprinkled holiday cheer though out our home.
First I’ll show you around my living room. You may or may not remember last year at this time the walls were a bright aqua color, I’ve since repainted them Whickham Gray by Ben Moore and I love how subtle they are now.
Because the walls are now more subtle, I can bring in accents of my favorite aqua color. I love how aqua/mint and teal look with linens, white and faux furs. The pillows are a mix from TJ maxx, Homegoods and Target. The sweater blanket is also from Target. I also grabbed some new items from the Hearth and Hand collection at Target for the mantel.
The coffee table we built with legs from my Brother in-law’s DIY table leg’s. Check him out Drake Casting Co.
Here is a closer up of our mantel, I chalk painted this metal tray that I found at Savers with chalk paint and then hand drew this “O holy night” script in white. I wanted to add something new to the mirror. I used double stick heavy duty tape and just stuck it in the center. I also found this “Merry Christmas” stocking holder and I love the combo of black and wood. I will link everything below in the “SHOP MY LIVINGROOM’ tab.
I love the look of the black and white plaid against our herringbone pattern tile. I brought in some subtle reds but not too much. I wanted it to feel winter-y with wood tones and some cool aquas. Something about red always makes it feel more like Christmas. After the holiday I will take the red out and leave mostly everything up through the winter.
I’m so happy I decided to incorporate that same plaid ribbon seen on the stockings, through the tree as well. The classic pattern adds a sophistication to a fun non-traditional colored tree.
SHOP MY LIVINGROOM:
The kid’s playroom which is off our living room got a few Christmas touches too! I kept it simple with a real mini tree and pops of red.
The stools I found at Homegoods last year, the table is from Pottery Barn, the rug is Target and the bench is an IKEA hack! The pillows are a mix from Target and Homegoods!
SHOP MY PLAYROOM:
Moving into the dining room and kitchen area, I used more traditional red and green. Plus my rustic/farmhouse touches. I bought this chicken feeder at a vintage fair, gave it a good cleaning and then added some seasonal greens, berries and some candles as a centerpiece.
SHOP MY KITCHEN:
Thank you all so much for stopping by and I hope you continue on with the tour. There is so much beautiful inspiration for the holiday season that you won’t want to miss! Next up on the tour is the lovely Rachel at The Porch Light Cottage
