*Details on my cute red skirt and other recent favorite clothes in yesterday’s fashion post. And yes.. I’m using the same porch picture to kick off both posts because it was enough work getting my husband to snap one picture like this.. two was out of the question. ;) *Affiliate links used
Friends! It’s finally here! Our annual Decked and Styled Christmas Home Tour! I’m so excited to be joining a group of my close blog friends to share a peek inside of our homes decked for the holidays. Nothing like a Christmas home tour. :) If you are popping over from my friend Sarah’s blog (Life on Virginia Street) hello and welcome! So happy to have you here! I’m currently sitting in a pair of my favorite pj’s typing this post with a Christmas movie on and my candle burning in the background. Isn’t this time of year the absolute best!? I couldn’t love it more. :)
Today I’m sharing my entry, living room, family room and a re-cap of a few rooms I’ve already shared. I wanted to squeeze a few more rooms in this post, but you’d all be scrolling for an hour and since I know how busy we all are this time of year I decided to share the rest of my Christmas decor in other posts this week. So come back for more! My motto when decorating for Christmas is “no room left behind”.. ha! My husband teases me that I have so many Christmas trees up I’ll be adding one to our garage before long.
Hmm… come to think of it that space could use a little holiday cheer. Not a bad idea. :)
This is our front entry (details on this space here) and I kept it pretty simple this year. You might notice things I moved in for our table from other rooms in our house. :)
Some greenery, ornaments in a favorite dough bowl and red flowers. Easy Christmas cheer.
The lighting in our formal living room was so awful the day I took these pics! This shot turned out a bit yellow looking but despite that, I’m loving this room.
The pops of red just make me happy.
I kept our tree in this room similar to how I had it last year. The main new addition was this cute knit ivory garland. I love it so much! It adds instant coziness. :) I almost bought the knit ivory tree skirt to go with it (also so cute!) but then remembered I had a blanket with the same look so I just wrapped that around the bottom of the tree. :)
I became obsessed with these lit glitter birch trees and first shared them in this post about all of my favorite Christmas decor. I knew they would sell out fast! I added them to my mantel with some fresh greenery. They look especially cute with the lights turned on a night.
My large dough bowl was perfect to hold some of our Christmas books. My kids read on the couch in this room a lot because it’s away from the main busy loud areas of the house (kitchen, family room) so this was a perfect place for our books. Nice and quiet and a great spot to curl up next to the tree with a good book. Something I hope to be doing very soon. :)
These fabric reindeer are too cute. I’ve been buying one a year of the smaller deer for a few years and then was in PB a few weeks ago and they were marked down on their way out so I picked up several more. This one on my table is the larger deer and I just have one of him. He steals the show. ;)
I totally spaced taking a picture of this side of the room with my O Holy Night sign and the top of my Christmas gallery wall so a few of these pics are from last years’ tour since the gallery wall is the same. Just telling you in case you were wondering why my table decor changes in a few pics.
I’m all sorts of tricky like that. ;)
Another shot from last year of our Christmas gallery wall.
I was excited to have these favorite family pictures on display again. :)
LIVING ROOM SOURCES:
And now on to our family room!
If it looks the exact same as how I decorated it for Christmas last year, that’s because it is. :) My kids love tradition and so do I and this room has a lot of decor that holds special meaning for us all so we don’t mix things up too much in this space. (For those of you who are new to my blog, all of my paint colors are listed in this post and I wrote all about this Chunky and Wool Jute Rug (natural) that’s a long time favorite in this post. I tend to get a lot of questions about those two things so I’m throwing that out there early. ;)
Here are lots of pics of our annual family room Christmas decor that my kids help decorate every year. :)
FAMILY ROOM SOURCES:
I’ll share our kitchen decor next! :)
If you missed my office I decked it for the holidays and shared pictures of it here.
The girls and I decided we work much more efficiently in this space now that it’s ready for Christmas. :)
I also shared my mudroom Christmas decor in this post.
My favorite room in the house.
And for the first time I decorated a tree in my master bedroom! Next year I’ll share my Christmas decor in the rest of this space. I have to first share this room with you in January.. I tend to get ahead of myself sometimes. ;)
If you are still working on your gift list and are feeling the need to get organized with what you already have and who you still need to buy for, there is a place at the bottom of this post to sign up to get my free Christmas gift list printables! I have LOVED using these this year. Such a huge help keeping track of all the gifts I’m buying and wrapping this year. You can see how my kids and I are using them in this post.
And speaking of gifts, if you still need ideas you can check my annual FAVORITE THINGS post OR yesterday’s post where I shared some new fashion favorites for the holiday season. So many cute things I’m loving!
But let’s be honest. Most days I am just counting down until I can put on favorite pj’s. :)
Christmas cards are coming each day in the mail and I’m so excited for the shiplap wall in our hallway to be filled with favorite faces! One of my favorite things about December.
Thank you for touring with me today! I’ll be sharing more throughout the week. Wishing you all the HAPPIEST holiday season this year.
Next stop on our tour is my sweet friend Shana (The House of Silver Lining). She is building a new home so this is her last Christmas in the home she is sharing today. I remember our last Christmas before we finished building and moved into our current home four years ago. A bittersweet and special Christmas for sure. Also be sure to check out the rest of my friends’ blogs and their beautiful homes! I know each one of these girls personally and can promise you that aside from being so talented they are also kind, down to earth, wonderful people. I’m grateful for their friendship this holiday season and I’m so incredibly grateful for all of you!
But I’ll save the sap for a post on Christmas Eve because it’s late and I’m too lazy to grab a box of tissues. ;)
