Christmas home tour of our home decorated for the holidays.
‘Tis the Season, or so the saying goes: Decking the halls for the holidays in our home is no small job. We have 6 trees to decorate, a mantel, a staircase and lights to put up outside so this doesn’t happen overnight. After a week of decorating we are done. Here is a virtual home tour with pictures of our home decorated for the holidays.
Our 9′ tree is trimmed out in a warm color palette of brown and olive green with accents of gold and copper.
Our stockings are a mixture of textures and patterns with fur cuffs, tassels, fringe and even jingle bells.
My deer statues have been collected over the years. The small deer on the right is by Pentik and came from Helsinki, Finland.
Even my pottery urns get made-over for the holidays with an arrangement of beaded, glittered branches with pine-cones painted silver.
The chandelier in our kitchen is adorned with a garland of pomegranates and kumquats with pear ornaments mixed in.
3′ trees on either side of the front door greet you. The open weave jute ribbon adds texture and is eclectic when paired with the woven brocade bow tree toppers.
This bowl is filled with a mixture of natural and gold painted pine cones. It is versatile for decorating no matter what the season. Remember what I filled it with last month?
In my keeping room the gallery wall holds frames filled with Christmas printables. I especially love the “Christmas Rules” reminders for my children. You can print these out for your own home here.
A red sled pulling over-sized “snow” covered pine cones is a festive touch. More on how we made these in a future post.
A monogram covered with holly berries rests against a frame. Here’s a tutorial to create this for your own home.
A garland of deco mesh, glass ornaments, beaded foliage and even a feathered friend light the way as you ascend the staircase.
Upstairs a 7′ tree stands in front of a palladium window. It is decorated in traditional red & green with plaid ribbon and hand-made ornaments collected from my childhood and made by my children.
The ribbon is wired which makes it easy to shape it into curls that have been tucked into the branches all the way down the tree.
On our game table is a red wool runner and these hurricane vases. We exchanged the fall filler for miniature pine cones and holly berries and tucked plaid ribbon behind the jute bows to tie it all off.
What holiday home would be complete without a Christmas village?
Now that you have seen our home decorated for the holidays, are you inspired to deck the halls in yours?
