Hello everyone! I am so glad you are here! If you are coming from SG STYLE, Welcome! I love Shavonda’s unique style!
This week has been a huge dose of Christmas decor inspiration, you guys! It is so amazing to tour everyone’s home and see many different styles and homes. Today is the last day of the Blogger Stylin’ Home tours, hosted by Lindsay from The White Buffalo Styling Co. and I am thrilled to be participating with so many fabulous and talented bloggers.
I just got home from my vacation Monday night, and I could not believe I could pull together a Christmas Home Tour today. Not only that but since Monday, the weather has been awful, rainy and dark. But finally the sun shone yesterday, and I managed to snap some photos. This year I mainly used what I already had on hand as I did not have the time to run around to hustle decor stuff. The only thing I bought were some lovely blue ornaments. I took my son to shopping with me one night, and I let him pick his favorite ornaments. Of course, they were blue…
…and mommy listened to his little boy, and we added blue to our Christmas decor this year. I was a bit skeptical first, but then I think at the end the color mix turned out fantastic. Last year I decorated with gold and silver, and I missed seeing colors, so bringing the blue in was a great choice. I decorated with lots of greenery, too. I just simply love the fresh scent in the air throughout the winter months.
Just recently we made a few changes to our entry way so the hallway would blend nicely with eour new cozy, eclectic LIVING ROOM. I am going to post about it in January. :-)I threw some greenery on the coat hanger, and I filled a Target bucket with Christmas tree branches here.
My new LIVING ROOM only got a few Christmas-y touches. A garland and a cute little Christmas tree with lovely blue ornaments.
I moved some things around in the family room so this year the tree got pushed back all the way to the fireplace. My family room is pretty small and not very functional. But I made it work, even with this tall tree.It will be a cozy place for us to chat and play board games with the boys next to the fire.
To coordinate with the blue hues, I made these easy DIY NO SEW STOCKINGS.
I carried blue throughout the house while decorating and my dining room got some of the blue hues with a touch of red, too. We celebrate Christmas Eve around the table with the family, and of course, I love to make our Christmas table festive. I made up a gorgeous centerpiece, and I am going to paint some holiday plates. I will be sharing my full table set up on the blog on the second week of December, so stay tuned for more!
…and this is our night view. I love Christmas time! I do! The lights, the smell, the holiday festivities all makes it so magical!
I hope you enjoyed our home tour!
