The Christmas Home Tour is here!! This remains one of my absolute favorite posts to publish each year. It’s so fun to look back through the years and see how our style has transformed year to year. You can find past Christmas home tours here, here, here, and here.
For 2016 I wanted to focus mostly on adding greenery through out the house using garlands, wreaths and Christmas trees. I didn’t put up as many of my old decorations, but I did add a few new items to our Christmas arsenal like our first Christmas tree topper, this Merry Christmas garland, and a lot of thrifted, brass candle sticks! I went with a minimal yet festive theme and I’ve been quite pleased with how it turned out.
The living room
Obviously our most festive room in the house, was sprinkled with garlands from Trader Joe’s and decked out with as many twinkle lights as I had batteries to accommodate.
Since I spend so much time in my office during this busy time of year, I couldn’t neglect to add a little bit of Christmas cheer in there as well! I added a simple Christmas tree garland from the dollar spot at Target (my favorite spot) and sprinkled my shelving with wire twinkle lights, and a marble Christmas Tree.
I usually don’t do much to our bedroom from season to season, but this year I decided that we needed to add some festive, flannel sheets and a cozy throw blanket to warm things up! Also not pictured, twinkle lights strung around the ceiling!
One of our absolute favorite evening routines is to build a fire in the fireplace, turn on a movie, play some cribbage and enjoy our cozy living room! So here are a few images of how our living room transforms at night.
Until next year! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, friends! :)
