Guess what time is it? Christmas home tour with some of my favorite bloggers. I can’t believe it is already time for CHRISTMAS!!! Be sure get all the inspiration from their beautiful homes by clicking on the links at the bottom of this post. I love this time of year and all the different themes and colors each home puts out. I know you will enjoy this tour just as much as I have.
Last year I did a pink Christmas and it was just magical. I guess having a new baby girl had something to do with that. It was really fun but this year I was not feeling the pink. It’s funny because I have so many cute pink decorations but just did not feel like it fit this house. Don’t worry, all the pink didn’t go to waste. I let my oldest daughter have free reign to decorate her room with all the pink. I will have a fun mini-tour of her bedroom all decorated soon.
I really felt like an earthy, minimal, and traditional Christmas. With that said, I still didn’t quite commit to the classic red. I was able to bring in some green and loved it! I don’t even know who I am with all this color?? I am all about neutrals but the green was a fun change. It feels almost like a neutral color at Christmas time. I got some new stockings for the mantel after almost 8 years of the same ones. 🙂 It was definitely time. I also added this fun green garland across the mantel to hide the stocking hooks. I ended up just using clear command hooks. All the stocking hangers were bulky and pricey. I really liked the minimal look of the stockings floating off the mantel.
I am so proud of myself for just using what I had when it came to the tree. I went all white and simple. I had all these white ornaments and picks. I usually have a jam-packed tree with more layers of ribbon and ornaments. This year I just wanted simple and less. It still looks very full because this flocked tree is naturally thicker. Maybe next year I will splurge for a thinner and simple looking tree. I did find this tree collar basket and like it much better than a skirt.
The entry was also simple with a bowl full of clear ornaments and some greenery. I snagged the $5 houses at Target. The white and wood were just what this little spot needed. I also got the most amazing wood sign from Craft Me Up Decor. This sign is such a statement. I was beyond impressed with the quality. You can customize size, frame color, paint color, and choose from tons of designs. I really just love everything about it! Be sure to go check out Jaesie’s cute little shop.
The mudroom is the only spot I kept some pink. The pink pillows from fall stayed while I added a simple white tree. I opted to leave it undecorated and just enjoy the simplicity. The fun wreath and small tree on the bench were some of the only glitter pieces I used this year. I limited the sparkle mess to the mudroom. 🙂
I hope you enjoyed seeing what Christmas looks like around here. It was actually a really simple year. I feel like over half of my decorations are still in boxes in the garage. It really doesn’t take much to get in the spirit of things for Christmas. Be sure to go see more of the gorgeous home tours below.
