Welcome, welcome!! Blogger Stylin’ Home Tours is one of my favorite things in the blogosphere and I am so glad you are here today! It’s even better this week because it’s all about sharing Christmas in our homes! A very warm welcome to all of you visiting from Inspired by Charm! Isn’t Michael’s holiday decorating amazing!?!
This year for our holiday home, I wanted to add to our shiny metallics and black and white with an infusion of color. Jewel tones are the inspiration for this space and I love the pop of bright mixed in! Sit back as you take a tour of our holiday spaces…
Walking into our living room always makes me smile, especially with the bright lights of the Christmas tree peeking out around the corner.
A COMFY SOFA
Our sofa got the sheepskin treatment for the holidays. It just adds another layer of comfort and warmth. I love using ball ornaments in different places throughout our home and potted plants, like the orchid behind our sofa, is no exception. Adding ornaments to planters adds just the right amount of sparkle.
Our Christmas tree I like to keep full of silver, gold, black and white. This year, I added a pop of color with the bright ribbons on the simple white present boxes. I also hand-painted some wrapping paper to mimic the my painting above the sofa.
ON THE COFFEE TABLE
Coffee tables are one of my favorite things to style. I mixed in some antlers and ornaments in a tray to create a unique arrangement. It is so pretty at night too, because it reflects all the lights in the room.
THE HOLIDAY MANTEL AND FIREBOX
We use our fireplace A LOT in the fall and winter, but when it isn’t in use, I like to pop some presents into the firebox. It’s a fun, whimsical touch, and my kids always say, “Oh, Santa had an accident again!”
I have faux lighted pine garland on the mantel, but I mix in fresh greens of cedar and white pine. This is an easy way to fill out your garlands and it looks completely natural. You can just swap out the greenery when it starts to look not so fresh anymore.
Instead of centering the wreath over the mantel, I like the look of placing it off to one side. My DIY Ornament Wreath was so easy to make and held up great from last year.
The fur stockings add the right amount of texture to soften the whole look.
UPON THE BOOKCASES
The library wall of bookshelves, I like to keep clean and simple. I add in some holiday touches like gifts, ornaments, and woodland decor. I love the look of a wreath centered on them with some gorgeous ribbon. Ribbon is definitely something I love to splurge on every year.
HOLIDAY BAR CART
We can’t forget the party, right? My DIY Ornament Trees are the perfect size for the top of the bar cart. I played around with some floral arranging and made a festive bouquet in a mercury glass vase.
Preserved boxwoods can be used all year-long, but I love to use them in my holiday decor too.
Mixing in more gift boxes and ornaments gives our little bar cart the holiday treatment and a sheepskin on the bottom shelf adds another layer of winter texture.
I hope you enjoyed our holiday touches and wish you all a very Happy Holiday!!!
