Thank you for coming back for part 2 of my Cozy Christmas tour. This week will highlight mainly our living room, with small snapshots of our office, master bedroom and half bath. As always, I hope to leave you inspired.
I think the piano is my favorite decorated space this Christmas. The neutral color and semi-rustic pieces ended up creating the perfect vignette.
Full view of our Christmas tree.
This is just a simple space in the hallway leading to the addition we put on 10 years ago. This glass hurricane used to be the cover for a gaslight 😉 .
You remember the hutch I blogged about a few weeks back? By far, one of my favorite pieces of furniture. Decorating it brings me pleasure, but I am constantly re-thinking and switching things around. I have decided leaving the doors open creates an illusion of space and fills up that area of the wall nicely.
How picturesque are these snowy reindeer? They have stolen my heart for several years now. They are lucky enough to stay out until the snow is completely gone for the season.
The fireplace…. re-doing it is on the “to-do” list. Some of you may remember that the surrounding tile and hearth were hunter green. Sooo dated!! Well… since this project was put on the back burner until after the new year, I decided to take matters into my own hands and paint the tile. Is it perfect? No – but we were over-all pleased with this temporary fix 🙂 . On top of the dated tile, the flames in the actual fireplace haven’t worked right going on 3 years now. We have tried replacing all the parts individually and still no luck. Off came the glass door and in went candles – I love it so much I don’t know if I even care if it ever gets fixed!!
Found this driftwood reindeer at Homegoods 😀 .
This year, birch logs have really gotten popular. I’ll admit, I am a sucker for the natural simplicity they add to decor and their neutral color. I also found birch candles and holders.
Our sofa table is hidden behind our sectional but sits pretty in front of our picture window. I love glass vases, bowls, jars, etc. Endless possibilities when filling them. I also love rice lights!! I have lost count of how many strands of these battery sucking gems we have, but they provide instant sparkle!
My nativity is a treasure. The stable was given to me years and years ago by my god-mother, Mona Post. No doubt some of you reading this remember and knew her well. I didn’t realize this gift would mean so much to me. I love the craftsmanship and simplicity of Willow Angels.
Turquoise… it’s a true love of mine. Found this Soda crate at this year’s Hobnob market at Robb Restyle’s Booth. The glass ornaments are from Ace Hardware in G.C.
Beloved tilt bowls from Crate and Barrel. Have you gotten yours yet?! So fun!
My moose, simply put, he’s adorable <3 . He greets you with a warm smile and bids you a good night.
I don’t even know how old this table is. It used to be painted a high gloss black. Years and years ago, my mom brought it back to life by stripping the paint. I have been lucky to display it’s beauty in my home for several years now. It’s not the most sturdy of tables so it is protected on the same wall as our photo gallery. My little church scene sits just perfect on top 🙂 .
I brought a little Christmas cheer into the office this year; after all, it did receive a bit of a make-over. Cute wooden trees are from Michael’s.
I spotted this fun diy tree in Country Living Magazine the other day while I was getting my hair done. I had everthing already, my favorite kind of project!
I don’t decorate a lot in our bedroom, but I do add a few cozy items.
Love my throw pillows and galvanized tray – Potterybarn
The half bath is just simply cozy and charming.
Thank you again for coming back. Next week I will be featuring another Christmas tour. My dear friend invited me in, and I can’t wait to share it with you as Christmas quickly approaches.
I will leave you with 2 outdoor pictures – capturing the Christmas lights at night is almost impossible for me!! My dad built this playhouse for our girls around 17 years ago <3
