Hi everyone! The biggest, warmest welcome to my Christmas Tour! This is my 4th year participating in Jennifer Rizzo’s Holiday Housewalk and every year I get giddy with excitement at the thought of seeing over 30 brilliant bloggers share their hearts and beautifully decorated homes. Each blogger has their own unique style which is celebrated and showcased with this holiday tour. I am always so honored to be a part of this festive event!
If you are coming over from Kelly Elko, thank you for stopping by my blog. Kelly’s home is one of my favorites, they renovated their stunning Dutch Colonial a few years back and every single detail is perfection. She has a wonderful vintage style that I just adore, you will love her tour!
When I began thinking of ways to make this holiday tour different then years before my initial thoughts were cozy, casual and simple. If you have followed my blog for a while you know that with Christmas I go all out. As years go on though I do find myself drawn to simple touches that make a home feel inspired by the season. I decided to go with rich textures & cozy elements that had a neutral palette.
Lets start with the family room…
I made my own abstract art above the mantle and layered in different heights and materials. I found the large wooden soldier at Home Goods and the smaller ones at the Pottery Barn outlet. The knit stockings are also from PB outlet, I found them in the kids section for $12 a piece. I also added herbs and olive branches to my fresh cypress clippings on the mantle.
The tree is from Balsam Hill and I still love it, it’s so easy to put together! And it looks real, no one can ever tell the difference. I went with my heart on this one and used our family ornaments. It’s not perfect but it is a sweet reminder of what the season is all about for us. You can read more HERE.
There is something magical when the room is a glow.
The pillows are from Home Goods, Pottery Barn & HM. I played with lots of texture & added some glitz. Love how they contrast and compliment each other. The faux fur throw is from ATG, which is another material that was fun to use in this space. You can find more about the rug and coffee table HERE.
Oh and I should mention, this is my 4-year-old Ikea sectional, which I still love, covered in a linen slipcover from Comfort Works. The great thing about having neutral furnishings is that you can change your accessories easily.
The art I wanted to reflect snow and a dark night sky, as if it were a snow storm blowing over the hills.
I have to tell you about this leather pillow that I found at Home Goods for 75% less I would have paid anywhere else. Gotta love that store!
Black & white buffalo checks were used sparingly through the 2 rooms but I love how festive it feels without a major commitment. Most of my accessories can stay through winter and I love that.
I always love seeing nighttime shots, so here are a few….

This is my DIY floating bench I made a few months back. I wanted to keep this space simple but festive at the same time. The art is from Lindsay Letters, it fit perfectly in this little nook.
Onto the dining room…
Again, I played with the blues in a neutral way by using this beautiful throw from Home Goods as the table-cloth. It was the inspiration for the room. By repeating the same textures, warm woods and natural elements the rooms feel cohesive with the other spaces.

Our Christmas Bedroom, ahh….
I added this beautiful pine cone wreath from Birch Lane over the bed, it makes the space feel festive without changing too much.
Simple touches make it feel relaxed. Of course, we don’t have coffee every day in bed but we have been known to, especially around the holidays.
My live edge bench is perfect in here. I made this dipped macramé textile art to bring in more texture and to make it feel cozy.
We got Denver a few months ago and we just love him to pieces! He is such a love and so easy-going.
I have had a lot of questions about the herringbone wall treatment, it’s actually paint! It was featured last February in BHG.
