Welcome back friends, come on in, grab a seat, and stay awhile. Are you visiting this morning with coffee in hand, hot tea, or cocoa? Maybe it’s evening time, and you are enjoying a night cap. Whatever time of day, thank you for returning for another virtual stroll into our cozy home. I focused on small details in our kitchen this time around.
I am thrilled to be joining a few fellow bloggers to bring you Part 2 of our cozy Christmas home tours. Feel free to re-visit Part 1 of our cozy home tour here 🙂
Like the rest of the house, I stuck to the same theme this year by adding pops of Christmas red and faux fur.
Did you all hear that Pantone is 2017’s color of the year? Greenery, yes! I think that is a color most of us will agree on 😀
I loved decorating with different sized trees this year. They immediately warm up any space, and are an easy accessory to add. These 3 metal pans and wooden pedestals are from Gable Lane Crates. Jump on board you guys, they are the best for farmhouse decor!
I bought these snowflake place mats last year at Pier 1, and they have them again this year!
My chef is in my top 10 favorite Christmas decorations. He’s so much fun to style, it’s hard to not move him around as much as “Elf on a shelf”.
Any Fiestaware lovers out there? This Christmas red mixing bowl was gifted to me this year on my birthday. I had plans in July for this piece at Christmas time.
Does a small part of me which we had open shelving everywhere in the kitchen? Yes..Maybe someday.
Our kitchen isn’t big, so simple is key. Glass jars and bowls are just FUN, and fairly inexpensive to decorate with depending on what you have around the house already. I think you have heard me say this before 😉 Just fill them or wrap them and presto, cute decor.
Doesn’t get much easier than tying some ribbon and sticking some greens inside. Cute!
I love cotton stems and pine cones for texture, another easy filler.
I absolutely love anything birch wood too, whether it’s faux or real. Such a soft neutral color, and again adds texture.
I moved my tiered tray from the peninsula over onto this counter. Tiered tray, or open shelves… which is more fun to decorate?
I made these mini wreaths to go on the back of my kitchen chairs, you can see how here . I had them there for awhile, but then decided to hang them on the cabinets. Just added a little more merry to this space.
Lastly, is my little coffee station. I so enjoy not having my coffee pot and Keurig taking up space on my counters! And it’s a fun way to display my new collection of Rae Dunn 😀
So now that we have made it full circle, here is a little glimpse at some twinkly lights. I love twinkly lights everywhere, it’s all the light you need this cozy time of year.
