I’m teaming up with Lynch Creek Farm to offer my followers a chance to win a fresh winter wreath! Read on…
I’ve been so exited for this package to arrive in the mail. My very first fresh wreath from Lynch Creek Farm! Let me tell you, the quality of this wreath is exquisite. I had a few ideas of where I wanted this wreath to go. When I saw how beautiful it was in person I decided to make it the focal point of my mantel.
I selected the Winter Radiance wreath in 26″ but they have many different sizes and styles to select from. Check them out here!
Since I already incorporated silver and some black in my mantel I swapped out my hammered metallic mirror for this stunning wreath. All the pine and natural materials in the wreath are from trees located in the pacific north west.
I added some greenery of my own from left overs cut from Christmas tree’s. I trimmed them and just placed them in to bring the green down around my stocking holder.
I have an outlet below the wreath so I placed these oversize snowflakes there to hide it. I also tucked these oversized ornaments on the bed of greenery.
The light up metallic stars I had from Michaels a couple years ago and I just nestled them in as well to continue the metallic look.

I’m teaming up with a group of talented home decor blogger’s to share our homes all decorate for this holiday season!
If you are coming from Happy Happy Nester thank you for stopping by! Isn’t her tour beautiful!? I love how cozy and inviting her decor is. As much as I love decorating the inside of my house, I like decorating the outside even MORE! Growing up, I loved driving around the neighborhood at night in December and seeing all the Christmas lights and decorations. This time of year is so full of magic and I love creating that atmosphere at our house, which is why on this tour I’m sharing all the exterior of our home.
First I want to show you my farmer’s porch. This is the entrance we use 99.9 percent of the time as we access this from our driveway. So I love making it festive and inviting. I hung an old window frame here that I layer seasonal decor over. A plain window frame is the perfect back drop to a seasonal element. This year instead of a wreath I found “merry” at A.C. Moore and painted it in a bright cheery red.
I decided to put this faux flocked tree from Walmart in the corner and I love it here. These grain sack pillows from Target last year are the perfect farmhouse touch as well. My kids love filling their Santa mailbox with their ever changing/growing Christmas List. All these pieces I’ve linked below.
Whenever the weather gets cool, I almost always have a warm beverage in hand. My Santa mug is my favorite!
I hope you liked my Farmer’s porch. If you are looking for similar items shop them here.
SHOP MY FAMER’S PORCH:
Like I said before, I love seeing how every house expresses their love for the holidays. Even if it is a simple wreath and white twinkle lights. This year I felt like making a big statement on our front door, literally! I don’t think Santa will miss our house. The bright red letters in “We Believe” are the perfect addition this year. I adopted a new motto for Christmas. “In our house we believe in the magic of Christmas, because when you stop believing you get underpants.” I saw this quote somewhere online and it made me giggle! My kids are still little and I love that they believe in the magic and wonder of Christmas. As they get older and question things, I think this will help keep their questions at bay.
My garland and wreath are from two years ago form Pottery Barn. I get so many questions on the color of our door. It it is St. Lucia Teal by Benjamin Moore. My daughter decided to get in on the photo shoot fun and honestly it couldn’t have been more perfect.
I love lanterns and I use them all around my home all year round. These over sized ornaments are fun to add to the scene as well. This large bucket I found at T.J.Maxx, I was so excited as I was looking for something like this. I’ll link some similar at the bottom.
There you have it my Home Exterior tour! What would you think if you drove by? I hope you enjoyed it and it inspired you to get decorating this holiday season. I linked some similar items for you if you are interest.
Of course I had to share one with our pup Levi.

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
Jordecor Holiday Gift Guide 2017
This holiday season I’ll be sharing my favorite’s– all things HOME of course. I hope this will inspire you for gift ideas, either for yourself or for someone you know that might also be a total homebody.
First up- comfort at home, otherwise known as lounge wear. Guys, whenever I’m home, I’m almost always in lounge clothes. It’s a nice change from all those years wearing yoga pants (I still do sometimes). Basically lounge clothes are a step up from PJ’s. Lounge clothes feels like pajamas but look like you could actually leave the house and run a quick errand. I rounded up some items that will help you feel comfortable, yet put together while hanging at home this holiday season. Totally appropriate if a friend surprised you with a visit or when that all too familiar amazon delivery person shows up.
There you have it my first gift guide all about comfort at home!!! My fave’s in lounge wear.
