I love the Christmas Season! It is the most wonderful time of the year! Twinkly lights, the warm glow of candles, fireside chats, lingering long with family and friends over a cup of something lovely all add to the coziness of my home during the Holidays.

I am so thankful that I got my house decorated early for the holidays because I have been battling an upper respiratory infection and have been ill for several weeks. I had hoped to get these pictures out to you all sooner.  Instead, I am grateful that I have been able to rest, recover and enjoy the fruits of my labor. Without further ado…

I would like to invite you to my Christmas home tour 2017! 

Great Room – We will start the tour in my great room. This year I decided to add touches of dark red back into my main tree in the great room with cream, and mixed metals. I love the way it turned out!

This is the view from our entryway into the great room.

I took this picture from the stairs so you could see another view of the room, and the decorated garlands that hang on the railing above the great room.

The bar in the great room was a perfect spot for my sleigh.

Music Room – Now onto the music room. I moved my forest of trees that I had last year into the sunroom room into my bay window alcove of my music room. One of my favorite things to do every year is to dig out all of my Christmas decor and figure out how I can incorporate it in new and exciting ways throughout my home.

The main tree in our music room!

View looking into the music room from my entryway. This year I incorporated the green and pumpkin colors from the painting above the sofa into the trees coupled with mixed metals and mercury glass.

This forest grouping of 5 trees illuminates the front windows of our home.

Dining Room – Sits adjacent to our music room. Our nativity scene takes center stage in the room because Jesus is the reason we celebrate this season.

In order to make this appear a little larger, I put a stack of books under the nativity scene and draped this fabric across to cover the books. Notice the word JOY on my candle holders. You will find this word throughout my home this Christmas season.

Garland and a few ornaments nestled into the chandelier add a little touch of Christmas!

The slim tree that I used in the music room last year works perfectly nestled in the corner of the dining room. Decorated with ribbon and poinsettias to carry the touch of red through the house.

 

 

 

Sunroom- This is room our family lives in and I wanted it to have a festive yet more casual feeling. So I went with a relaxed Woodland theme.

I love the new addition of this bell above my kitchen sink that opens to the sunroom.

This little nook was a perfect place for the Santas.

 

This concludes my Christmas Home Tour 2017. I hope you are inspired to make your home a lovely place to gather friends and family this holiday season. My prayer for you is that in the midst of a what can be a very hectic season, that the love of Christ will fall afresh upon you and that you will rest in His love.

For to us a child is born,
    to us a son is given;
and the government shall be upon his shoulder,
    and his name shall be called
Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
    Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. – Isaiah 9:6 ESV

  7. Stunning! We won’t talk about the fact that I have not one single decoration up yet…and probalby will put none up this year. Our nest is empty, and we’re headed to Alaska for two weeks to spend time with our daughter, our grandson, and our son-in-love. I miss the decorations, but the hubs and I are so busy with our jobs that it didn’t seem worth it to decorate. I’ll enjoy your decorations, instead ;). I’m dropping by from Chasing Community :).

      Hi! Anita, Thanks so much! I would rather spend two weeks in Alaska with my family than decorate, and I REALLY love decorating. Please enjoy my decorations and have a blessed Christmas. ❤️🎄

      My Christmas home is a culmination of 20 plus years collecting, and yes I love those deer. Thanks for stopping by and hope you have a very Merry Christmas!! ❤️
