Thanks so much for following along with the 12 Days of Holiday Homes tours. I’m always inspired and amazed at the homes these bloggers pull together, and I really appreciate the time they take to do it! I’m also really grateful to have Lynch Creek Farm as a sponsor again this year. Their wreaths and centerpieces always add to the holiday vibe. This year I’m sharing my holiday home tour, but am going to focus on some rooms that really haven’t gotten a lot of face time in the past. Some of the spaces in our home seem to stay relatively constant year over year, so this year, I’m sharing some of the spaces that you haven’t seen much of in the past, or much at all for that matter. If you’d like to see tours of Christmas past, you can check them out here, here and here. I hope you enjoy!
Let’s start with a peek at the outside. I brought the “Joy” sign back out this year – only instead of using it on my fireplace mantel, I put it outside on the front porch.
I thought since my dining room just got a One Room Challenge refresh, it was worth sharing this year on the tour. We’ve added a couple of extra trees to the house this year, and I just couldn’t help it. A tree is just what this dining room needs for the holidays.
And the pup just cannot contain himself. He’s like a camera magnet of some sort.
I played around with some of the decor on the dining room table, and fresh evergreens win every time, don’t they?
I have a few preserved mini boxwood wreaths, and they come in handy to add a little extra pizazz to other holiday items, like this fun silver deer. I added some fun little twinkle lights to an IKEA lantern, and they reflect off of the ornaments that I put in there as well.
Another room I don’t think I’ve shared much at all (at least lately). It is truly my sanctuary, and I love it in here. The deal maker for the room is the headboard. I found it at Frontgate Outlet a couple of years ago, and my heart literally skipped a beat when I spotted it. I had been looking for a headboard for a long time, and this one was it. I love it – it feels like you’re wrapped up in a hug when you go to bed at night.
We’ve never had a tree in our bedroom before, but I really love the soft light that it gives off at night. I’m going to miss it!
I added a couple of small touches to my kitchen (that is finally back together after my Cabinet Painting 2.0 episode.
And then just a peek at the island. I’m really loving the satin nickel hardware on here, and am contemplating changing all of the hardware to satin nickel. But not now. Mama needs a rest.
A peek downstairs to the basement where we have our fourth (gulp) tree. Apparently, I really enjoy making extra work for myself. Nothing too crazy down here – despite the fact that I’ve gone overboard on the trees, I do find that I like to keep them fairly simple.
I opted for pops of red down here – berries, ribbon, garland, etc…
Hope on over to The Pink Clutch and see Paige’s bright and pretty dining room!
