I’m so excited to finally share with you the full tour of the house I decorated for Christmas this year! And if you’re new around here, you might be thinking, “Hmmm…that is strange wording…why is she calling it “the house I decorated for Christmas??”
And the reason for that wording is because this house you see here today is not my house. My house is stacked up with packing boxes right now because I’m moving in three days.
(Thump. Passes out momentarily)
I was, however, asked to participate as a designer in the Holiday House Tour in my town, and it turned out to be such a nice creative outlet for me in the midst of all the chaos and mess that moving brings with it.
I’m thrilled to be sharing the full tour with you today as part of Blogger Stylin’ Home Tours Christmas Edition, hosted by Lindsay of The White Buffalo Styling Co.
I’m also happy to be linking the tour to Jennifer Rizzo’s Holiday House Walk Link Party.
If you’re stopping over from Beneath My Heart, welcome! So far I’ve shared house tour peeks at two Christmas mantles I decorated in the house, a DIY cheap-and-easy ornament garland, a DIY “Noel” display, and the Christmas trees.
For the full tour, I thought I’d walk you through the house just like those who attended the actual tour in person.
The first room on the tour is the living room, and straight ahead of you as you enter the room is the narrow tree I decorated simply with black and white striped ribbon and miniature gold and silver balls.
The black and white cane chair is one of my favorite thrifted makeover pieces.
The mantle to the left of the tree is draped with a DIY ornament garland and topped with preserved boxwoods, pinecones, and white eyelet ragball ornaments.
Directly adjacent to the living room is the dining room.
I topped the sideboard with a bark-frame mirror, mercury glass accents, and candles.
Once you pass through the dining room you walk into the eat-in kitchen, where the table is set with hot cocoa fixings.
The kitchen sideboard is home to a bottle brush tree forest with glass cloches, sparkling silver globes, and candlelight.
Mercury glass ornaments hang in the kitchen window over the sink.
The last stop on the tour is the family room, with it’s contemporary classic mantle of greenery, red beaded garland, and gold accents.
I made the DIY Noel display out of a wreath and some craft store letters covered in scrapbook paper.
The coffee table holds birch-wrapped candles in black lanterns and a textured tray filled with sparkling ornaments, a boxwood wreath, and a sweet antique brass bunny.
I made faux-mink and sequined pillows for the sofa to add some texture and sparkle (tutorials and sources for both coming soon!).
At the base of the tree, I clustered some wrapped gifts, a bronze garden stool, and a collection of lanterns with candles inside.
And that, my friends, brings us to the end of the tour! I hope you’ve enjoyed seeing the whole house after all my teaser posts.
Be sure to swing by and see Jen at Tatertots and Jello next to continue the blog hop! And in case you missed any of the awesomeness that has been shared this week, here is the full lineup of talented ladies sharing their Christmas House Tours:
