Our Christmas Home Tour 2016 - Part 1

The Christmas tours are in full swing this week, and I'm happy you've made your
 way to ours, thanks so much for stopping by today! I'm sharing our living room and
 dining room, then on Friday I'll be joining another group and sharing our kitchen
 and family room.
A huge thank you to sweet Marty @ A Stroll Thru Life for organizing another fun
 group this year and taking care of all the behind the scenes work to pull it all together.
 Welcome if you're coming over from Christina's @ Remodelando la Casa, she is darling
 and her home decked out for Christmas is always a favorite tour!  

After years of decorating with a lot of stuff, I've come to appreciate a more simple
style. Using fresh greenery from our yard is my favorite go to decor, and moving
our furniture, artwork and accessories around gives our rooms enough of a new
 look for me.  

~ Living Room ~
   


I painted our living room blush (Benjamin Moore - Queen Anne Pink) a few months
 ago and still love it! A pretty blush poinsettia was perfect with my favorite pillow
I found last fall and my Pottery Barn knock off pillow I made a few years ago.


A little holiday detail adds a festive touch to a piece of artwork.


  
I brought together a few pieces of milk glass for a simple vignette on my campaign chest. 



Do you guys remember this cabinet was an ugly brown Craigslist find that
I DIYed to replicate a pricey one that I loved!
I always hang over our fence and borrow a few pieces of chopped wood from our
 neighbor's pile and return them after the holidays. :)





~ Dining Room ~

You guys, I'm so done with the green in my dining room, it seemed like a good idea
 last spring. It's a south facing room with french doors and a ton of natural light, for a
good part of the day it's a tad bright. Haha! And, it photographs neon!  
It's project #1 for the New Year.


I found these fun gold pineapple pots on the clearance rack at H & M,
and added evergreen sprigs and eucalyptus. They make a great low centerpiece
lined up down the center of our table. 





My paperwhites are going strong.
 I love the statement they make when they're so tall, these are 30" high from the top of
 the pot. I do baby them to keep them from flopping over, turning them every day to
 keep them even as they lean toward the sun.
Oh my, that paint!!
Let's focus on the peek of my tree, I'll be sharing it with the rest of our tour on Friday.


My sweet friend Jennifer @ Decorating Delirium, is up next and her style never
 disappoints! She's a Craigslist fan too, and always shares her amazing finds!

Thanks again for stopping by, don't miss the other fabulous tours today!

Let the Christmas Home Tours Begin...


Hey everyone, are you ready for inspiration overload?
I can't wait to check out the beautiful home tours, I've already started pinning a few
 ideas for next year. I love it when I actually have a plan, which wasn't the case this year!
I've linked the schedules for the two tours I'll be joining ~ my goodness so many
fun bloggers ~ this will be good!  
Pop back over tomorrow, I'm thrilled to be sharing my Living Room & Dining Room with
 a group headed up by sweet Marty @ A Stroll Thru Life once again!
On Friday I'll be back with my Kitchen & Family Room, and I'm saving the outside for
 that day, too. We're getting a big cold front, so I'm hoping to have photos of a Colorado
 Christmas Tour with snow!
Jenny @ Evolution of Style and Christy & Amy @ 11 Magnolia Lane
are our fabulous hosts and have a great line up I'm so excited to be part of!

TGIF - The Gems I Found


Happy December friends! 
I've been frantically excitedly working on getting our home decorated for my annual
 girlfriend party next Tuesday and a couple Christmas tours. It's always a hot mess and crazy
 until the decorating is off the list, but once my house is back in order I feel like I can enjoy
 all the festivities, traditions, baking and shopping. :) 
So that's on my agenda for the weekend ~ hope yours is a good one!     


Before & After ~ A Stylish Living Room
Painting the stone fireplace was a great call!


Beautiful collection of art for your home.


I'm obsessed with this creative layering idea, and there are lots of suggested combinations. 


Inspiring Before & After of a modest starter home.


A chic makeover of a 500 square foot apartment in NYC.


12 Days of Holiday Homes begins today with two beautiful homes!

My Fifteen Favorites - My Christmas Wish List


Hey friends, this month we've super sized our usual 'My Five Favorites' since
we're sharing our Christmas Wish Lists and it's much more fun to have a list of
fifteen than five, right? I have a combination of personal and home items, and I'm betting
 after I see my stylish pals' lists mine just may hit the twenty item mark!
Jennifer @ Dimples & Tangles

I'm sure you're all familiar with our darling guest, this month we're excited to have
 Courtney @ A Thoughtful Place sharing her wish list too!
I can't wait to see what treasures she's found. She's got a knack for pulling off that
 chic effortless style, whether in fashion or her design choices as she decorates her
family's new home ~ just check out her fab kitchen!!


  Ok, let's get started....
   
#1
Belted Wrap Coat with dramatic shawl collar.


#2
Statement Bib Necklace described as a warrior princess vibe,
 love it dressed up or down.



#3
Lots of fun colors and monogram styles!


#4
Free People Twirl Around Poncho
This is one of my favorite brands for sweaters, always cozy and unique details. 
This one is so cute from the back! 
(Nordstrom Rack is a great place to find this brand at a discount)

#5
Fleece Hooded Pullover with Mid Rise Compression Leggings
Have you guys tried any of Old Navy's activewear, they get tons of great reviews.


#6
The Lou Loafer in Animal Print Calf Hair
Looks like something French women would wear.  

#7
Bristal Ankle Strap Pointy Toe Flat
A girl can't have too many shoes ~ I like charcoal suede.

#8
North Face Tech gloves for exercising on chilly mornings.  

#9
This fun phone case makes me smile!

#10
Beautiful book is always on my list, pretty fitting, right?


#11
Anthro Capri Blue - Volcano Candle
This is the scent you smell in Anthropologie stores, pretty lid on this one.

#12
Mongolian Faux Fur Throw 
Yummy texture and machine washable ~ win!  
#13


The large tray is on sale, but it's big, would be great for a larger coffee table or ottoman.
If you recognize this from my fall home tour, I borrowed my friend's. :)

#14
Gold Hinged Metal Pull 
Am I the only one that thinks a few of these would be a great stocking stuffer?
They're fabulous and a steal!

#15 
Boho Kilim Nagar Indoor Outdoor Rug
SUPER excited about this one ~ I may have had to order it on Black Friday.
Fingers crossed, I'm hoping it works with my blush walls.



Stop by and check out these talented friends' favorites:

TGIF - The Gems I Found


I'm a happy girl today,
we have snow on the ground and a low of 23 degrees this morning!
What's crazier than that is we had a record breaking 80 degrees on Wednesday.
I'm crossing my fingers it will get me in the mood to start some Christmas decorating
this weekend.


I love how these beautiful pies are part of the centerpiece at this Thanksgiving table.


It took me a second to realize this is an incredible closet makeover instead of glass doors!


 This cute fashion blogger is my latest fav on Instagram.


A magical home in England with stunning views!


A sweet gesture for a friend or neighbor, and here's a free printable for the card.
