House Tour: Holiday Edition


The 25 Days of Christmas 22 Days of Christmas continues with our house tour! We are far from the Griswolds, but we certainly like to bring a little holiday spirit into each and every room.


In the entryway lives our Home Alone inspired shabby-crooked Christmas tree from the tree farm. I seriously love this little guy. The number one quality that I look for in a tree is always the shortest, fattest one with the most disproportionately, tall top branch!

Please disregard the ugly, invisible tree skirt.

Every year, I debate back and forth about whether to have a colorful tree or keep it simple with white lights and classic, woodsy ornaments. So this year, we did both!




We opted for a cheap & easy pine garland for the top of the mantle... made purely from our tree trimmings! :)







We even decked out our bedroom. Our room is far from complete, I still have no idea what to put above it (a canvas maybe?) and we definitely need new nightstands & window treatments.

 Brandon told me the other night that our bed looks like a sleigh... hell yes.

 
 
And last but not least, one of my favorite rooms in the house, the playroom! We spend a lot of our time in here & hope to continue making it a super fun, whimsical place for Harper to play.


My favorite part? Harper's new teepee! I have been on the hunt for one forever & finally discovered Moozle Home, the most perfect teepee ever! We added a blanket inside, some fairy lights & another one of our favorite felt garlands.... seriously I want to live in here. It reminds me so much of the movie, The Holiday! :)

The chalkboard wall had to get a little bit festive too! 


 And of course, your daily dose of munchkin.




Happy Sunday to you all!

  5. Love the pictures of Harper. Your Christmas stuff looks great,when we hit over the age of thirteen the Christmas things aren't like the use to be even though we have the nieces and now nephew that have a Christmas here( the younger niece *She is five* that it was called Meah Christmas). The bed does look like a sleigh.

  26. I have been having the same problem with our bedroom! There is blank space above our bed and I cannot decide what to put there. I feel like a big piece of art would look best - but then it could set the tone for the rest of the room and I'm not sure if I'm okay with that. Decisions, decisions!

  28. WHAT is in the little door in Harper's playroom?! You could totally make that into some crazy cool play space for her when she's a wee bit older!

  31. omg! love the teepee and I've been looking everywhere for one for my little man and almost was going to make one, so thanks for the Etsy info. We couldn't figure out forever what to put over our bed but ended up hanging a beautiful handwoven rug from Afghanistan when we visited and we love it. Make our room feel really cozy.

  34. Love, love, love all your Christmas decorations! that teepee is to die for too! I had one when I was little and they totally rock!!

    Have you ever thought about doing like a time lapse video of you drawing on the chalkboards? I would love to see your process and time lapse videos are totally awesome!

  35. Your house looks so beautiful! We are currently deciding where we are going to build... Makes me so excited to decorate next year! (decorating a town home isn't nearly as fun ;))
    ps. like I said on instagram, LOVE the tp. Harper's playroom is amazing!

    ReplyDelete
  36. honestly if you lived closer, i would totally pay you to help decorate my house! your place is the cutest ever

    ReplyDelete
  37. Lovely! Maybe over the bed, you could do three large canvas prints (or three large frames that you could swap out the pics in). A trio of places you've lived/fallen in love/spent time together/visited, etc. makes a nice memory wall!

  38. Beautiful home! I've been trying to neutralize mine like yours for what seems like forever. I love the black, whites, creams and natural textures...just beautiful! And the chalkboards, don't even get me started! One question, where did you get that awesome caddy on your kitchen table? It's perfect! Thanks for sharing your space :)

    ReplyDelete
  39. Can you do a post, or include in something, on the paint colors in your house?? Love the soft, neutrals!

  45. Just found your blog and love your little family. Congratulations on your new addition! My first was just born 4 months ago and I am loving every day with my little miss. = ) I have to get one of these teepee's for her and am curious, did you get the small, regular or large size?
