Our Christmas Home Tour 2015 ~ Part 2

Hi friends! Thanks so much for checking back for Our Christmas Home Tour ~ Part 2.
If you'd like to catch up with Part 1 ~ our Living Room and Dining Roomgo here.  
I'm thrilled to be joining a talented group of bloggers that Marty @ A Stroll Thru Life
rounded up for another year of fabulous inspiration! If you haven't seen her beautiful
tour you're in for a treat, it's a must! 
Welcome if you're stopping by from my stylish friend, Shannon at Burlap & Lace,
it's easy to fall for her chic style. 
Today I'm sharing our Family Room and Kitchen, the simplicity of fresh greenery,
a few special touches and pops of pink paired with my neutrals won me over this year.

I was able to capture a little bit of our Colorado snow for you before it melted.
Detail Boy, (don't know where he gets it) my teenager, gets credit for the wrapping the
 tree branches in lights.  
I'm not sure why our chimney lights looks white, but they're all red, 
a long time tradition to make it easier for Santa to find.

I decorate the three large window boxes on the front of our home and urns on our
porch with greenery from our yard. 

Come on in...
if you'd like to start with the entry go here for Part 1 of our tour
We have an open floor plan, and the kitchen and family room are the hub where 
everything happens. We love to cozy up in here with the fireplace, I didn't 
think you'd appreciate a photo, but our tv is in the built-in behind the tree. :) 

I made the fur trimmed stockings last year, and purposely designed a generous size.
I love filling them to the brim with treasures, for certain you'll get your favorite
 candy along with and a new toothbrush. Haha!   
It's one of our favorite traditions on Christmas morning. 

Our neutral backdrop makes it too easy to change up the colors, which works perfectly
with my indecisive personality. This time I brought out a couple of my favorite Ikea
 black and white pillows to pair with pink. It doesn't even look like the same room as

Another one of my infamous abstracts - I scribbled with a pink sharpie. 
I added a necklace of gold and silver bells to give my demure lady bust a bit of whimsy,
 and the pink poinsettia gives some color to our shelves.  

I kept our coffee table simple with a bowl of gold beaded apples, and
a few accessories on an acrylic tray. 

Our Kitchen
If you're new here I gave our kitchen a budget makeover with a LOT of paint and
 DIYs not long ago. I still love my formica countertop on our island. You can check

I love changing up this functional vignette seasonally, the silver pitcher and
 trophy hold cooking utensils and a huge brass tray I found thrifting corrals 
all the other necessities, flowers and wine. :) 

One last look at our tree...

...and our sweet Rio girl, being a good sport, once again.

If you'd like to check out our Christmas Tour from 2014 go here,
I kept the pink, but the living room and dining room have complete new looks, 
no surprise there!

Next up on the tour today is Laura @ Decor To Adore.
