HOME: A Christmas Tour

It's the most WONDERFUL time of the year!


I LOVE the holidays.
I LOVE to decorate for the holidays.
I LOVE our home all holidayfide!

Can I offer you a cup of hot cocoa while you take a little look around our home?
Wouldn't that be nice...

You can see more details of our Christmas Tree here...
And here... you can see the details of our kiddo's Christmas Tree.

I went with a very simple color palette this year: gold, silver and red.
I LOVE how the red just packs a punch with the neutral decor.

And since our home doesn't have much storage space, I kept it simple with what I exchanged in terms of my home accent items. Because for every Christmas piece I bring out... another piece has to be stored until after the holidays. And I don't want to be hauling everything down to the storage unit. I think this year I accomplished the best balance so far... yeah... me!

We don't have a fireplace or anything really to hang our stockings on, but we make do with this little set up. We even have a stocking for our dog, Chewie.

Since you can see our bedroom from our major living space, I continued the decor theme in there.

I've added these silver wreaths to every hanging mirror that we have in the home. 
It's a fun consistent decor idea.

Red and white ornaments fill several glass and lucite bowls around the home.
Again.... simple, but a powerful punch of color.

The mirror is a new addition to our foyer and I just LOVE how the wreath is displayed on it. 
The mix of glam and old is always a favorite of mine!

I kept the foyer pretty simple... vintage brass deer, gold trees and a red vintage paperweight complete the vignette on the vintage burlwood console.

I noticed while I was typing this post, that I used the word "simple" a lot. I guess it really was a necessity this year.... to keep things simple with the decor, so I could have more time to devote to the celebration of the holidays. Keeping it simple has enabled me to keep this the most...

WONDERFUL time of the year!
