Holiday Home Tour 2014

In yesterday's post I revealed my Holiday Milk Glass Vignette, where I gave a sneak peek of my Holiday Decor. I'm so excited to share my full Holiday Home Tour with you today!

I had so much fun decorating this season. I've changed up my decorations this year and went with a "Woodsy Vintage" theme. I decorated simply, but I have lots to share! Most of the decorations are in my Living Room, so we'll start there!

I went with a red, green and white color scheme with natural accents. I used burlap and fresh greenery to give the room a more rustic, woodsy vibe and I also added in pieces from my Milk Glass collection to give it a vintage flare.

If you can't tell from my decor, I am LOVING plaid this season. There is an explosion of plaid happening in my life. I'm loving plaid scarves, shirts, even a plaid coffee cup, so why not some plaid home decor? I incorporated it into my living room through throw pillows and a plaid-trimmed tree skirt.

Speaking of vintage, I'm displaying my Mom's ceramic Frosty the Snowman, that we had at our house growing up, on a small telephone table. I also have my Grandmother's Nativity Scene set out on one of the side tables. I love mixing new items with vintage and family items, especially during the Holidays.

Now for the main event, the Christmas Tree!

As always, we have a natural tree and we decorated it with white lights this year. I'm usually a colored lights kind of girl but I'm really loving the way the white lights give our tree a classic warm glow. I wrapped the whole tree in burlap garland and added red and white matte bulbs. Next, I added beaded pinecone ornaments then sprinkled in our family ornaments for the finishing touch.

I love Christmas Cards. I'm always looking for new ways to display them so I took to Pinterest and stumbled upon this idea. While I didn't get as creative as she did and make the sign myself, I took a Merry Christmas hanging sign I already had and just added two red ribbons. I clothes pinned cards to the ribbons as I received them.  Its hanging on the basement door and I'm really loving the way it turned out!

The last stop of the tour is the bathroom. I just wanted to highlight a few items I added in there. How cute is the Lumberjack Santa Nutcracker? I'm really not a big Nutcracker person but he was too cute to pass up. He didn't really have a place in the living room so I just put him out on my bathroom counter and I think he works in there.

Besides holiday hand towels and soap, the only other decoration in there is the Milk Glass tub full of Boxwood branches. I got this piece of Milk Glass for my bathroom because I thought it looked like a bathtub and I usually fill it with pretty soaps. For the Holidays, I changed out the soap for some Boxwood Branches and I think its a really simple and elegant decoration.

Thank you for taking the time to view my Holiday Home Tour! I hope you have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

    1. Thank you Katie! I loved doing something different with my cards. They are all so pretty, I wanted to make them part of my decor.
