Welcome to my cozy and playful holiday house tour! If you’re stopping by for the first time, I’m Jen! My family and I live on the east end of Long Island. We have plenty of pristine, gorgeous water views here, along with bugs and humidity. If you’re not familiar with Long Island, we are the fish-shaped island that gets off from NYC. So we are surrounded by water and that is where I get most of my inspiration from.
This year, I pulled my color palette from the view outside my door of moody blues, greens, and organic tones. I also used textures from the coast to cozy it up and added a touch of whimsy, hence the playful part. A big thank you to Jennifer Rizzo for hosting this year again. This is my tenth Holiday Housewalk with Jen, and I am always blown away by my fellow bloggers, so be sure to stay until the end and take everyone’s holiday tours.
You can start the tour from the beginning here.
If you’re coming from Twelve on Main, I’m so happy you’re here! Sara’s Kitchen looks amazing and full of unique decorating ideas!
Let’s begin the tour in my den, which was originally my dining room. Now it doubles as my office, library, and den. It’s small but so cozy. This 7.5 Ft Alpine Fir Christmas tree is the perfect size for the space.
I made these Anthropologie-inspired gilded candleholders with craft paper and paint.
As you can see, my stand-out colors are blue/green and camel, both coastal tones. Those ribbons I added to my Christmas tree.

The old snowshoes I found years ago at The Barn on the North Fork of Long Island for a steal. I love displaying them every year. The bells on the stockings are the BEST BRASS BELLS out there for the price! You can also shop my AMAZON HOLIDAY STOREFRONT.
I painted my French doors black a few years ago, and it was the BEST decision! They are such a fiscal point now.
You can see the bay views from this room, and this time of year, it looks like lavender and denim.
Now onto my nook and DIY floating bench. I will get around to repainting the faux planked walls made with a simple pencil, but for now, it stays.
