My 2014 Christmas Home Tour

I’ve shared with you a look at different room in my home all decorated for the holidays and today, I’m giving you the whole Christmas home tour!  This post includes, lots and lots of photos.  I tried to narrow it down to just my favorites, but there are still a lot so be prepared!  You can click on the links in each room for additional details and photos.

Let’s start at the front door, shall we?  This year, I wrapped the front door like a present with velvet wired ribbon.  I then added a few simple branches of greenery and a couple of mercury glass ornaments to the bow.  And YES!  I finally finished painting the door black but haven’t yet added the address of lion head door knocker.  This isn’t really how I had planned on revealing the door to you, though, so when I finally do the reveal, act surprised, okay?  :)

I added a Poinsettia and some cedar to a small basket…

…and I just couldn’t resist adding a Santa hat to my lion statue!

The first room inside the door is the living room, where we have our family Christmas tree.  It’s a live Nobel Fir with 1,500 lights so that it lights up the room at night!  You can see all of the living room pictures {here}.

The fireplace is covered in cedar branches and a cedar garland with touches of silver and white.

Here’s a look at my favorite chair all dressed up for the holidays with the addition of a simple velvet ribbon…

…but don’t you agree that it looks even better with my new puppy, Jax, sitting on it?!!!  He’s a miniature Labradoodle and we love him already!

The dining room has a similar look and feel to that of the living room, with lots of natural greenery, gingham ribbon, and red accents.  You can see all of the dining room pictures {here}.

I also added greenery to the chandelier, which makes a great backdrop for the crystals.

In the kitchen, I only did just a touch of decorating.  I really only like to decorate with items that makes sense in a kitchen and so prefer to use flowers, plants, and food that is seasonally themed {or colored}.  On the wall, I added some Poinsettias and ironstone plates to my vintage crates.

I also updated the fruit bowl vignette that sits in a basket on my countertop to include mandarin oranges, pomegranates, and nuts.

My family room is really the kids’ space, so it’s a lot more casual and traditional in terms of it’s holiday decor and colors.  I updated my gallery wall to give it a holiday theme.  You can see more in the post {here}.

I also gave the vintage game vignette some Christmas touches, dressed up my olive bucket, and added touches of red to my cabinet.

Finally, I created an advent calendar for just $8 using my old orchard ladder.  Details {here}.

The final stop on the holiday tour is my master bedroom.  I don’t really decorate anything in the room except the mantel because I love how it glows in the light of the fire.  I kept it super simple this year using only cedar branches and white roses to give it a timeless elegant look.

And yes, even my vintage dress form got a bit of Christmas bling…!
