Holiday Home Tour 2013
As promised, I am back today with my full holiday home tour for this year! I already showed you our Turquoise, Blue and Silver Living Room and our Silver and Green Dining Room in separate posts. Most of the decor went into these two rooms, so I wanted to highlight them on their own. Now, I’m going to show you the rest of the house! Here we go!!
Just to recap, our Entryway, Playroom, and Living Room were decked out in blue and silver tones. See lots more photos HERE!
Our Dining Room was given a silver and green holiday treatment. See lots more photos HERE!
Next up, our Kitchen! I didn’t do too much in here, but enough to bring the holiday spirit into this cave-of-a-kitchen. I strung holiday lights under the cabinets using tiny command hooks (it’s so pretty at night), and added the “eat, drink, and be merry” along the top of the cabinets. These words were cut out of corrugated cardboard and glittered (similar process as the pinecones); I got the idea HERE. They were a ton of work and totally tedious to do (we had to cut them out by hand with an exacto knife!) If my sister hadn’t been here to help, they would have never gotten done 🙂 I love them so much though, do you think I could get away with leaving them up year-round?!?
Let’s go down the hallway! A few turquoise and gold accents were added to our Command Center…
…and our bathroom was done similar to last year, with lots of cobalt, white, and silver accents!
Our glitzy master bedroom was just given a few more glittery accents for the holidays!
In Henry’s room, I added some Santa hats to his vinyl owls and gave him his own mini tree. I decorated this tree with a bunch of trains he doesn’t ever play with. Don’t you know that as soon as they were on this tree, he insisted on taking them off and playing with them!
Last but not least, the Office/Craft Room. I played up the gold accents already in the room with some simple holiday items. The gold trees are from the Dollar Store (!!!) and I bought the chalkboard print HERE and printed it at Staples. Lastly, I made a simple glitter circle garland to string along the craft counter. I don’t want to show to many photos of this space since you haven’t see the whole thing come together yet, so consider this your sneak peek!
Phew. I feel like I could go on and on with photos of holiday decor, but as Christmas is next week, I think I’ll cut myself off here! I am so thrilled with how our house came together this year. Little by little, I feel like I am finally identifying how I like to decorate for the holidays: clean silhouettes, wintery textures, piles of ornaments and lots of glitter!
Oh – and another super big “thank you” to my neighbor and friend Jessica for snapping a lot of these photos!
Christmas is less than a week away, are you ready? I am done with my shopping and just need to focus on wrapping and baking up some cookies! Hope you have a great weekend! On Monday, I’ll have a last-minute gift idea for you!
