I thought it would be fun to take a tour of our family room and show you parts of my happy place. With all the craziness going on in the world right now I am nesting more than ever with my little family and truly feeling truly blessed for them. So with that . . .Welcome to my home – Christmas Edition!
This is the room we live in most so it is definitely the most decorated room in the house and why I am sharing this first for our Christmas Home Tour. The focal point of the room is our fireplace. We did not have a fireplace back in California so I feel spoiled having THE perfect spot to display some of my favorite pieces.
I have my prized Pottery Barn sea fan shadow box art as the main anchor to the top of the mantel and my white flower vases flanking either side.
I just filled these with some berries that match the mesh and berrie garland I draped along the front of the mantel.
This year a client had asked me to create her a reindeer art print with the sentiment “Believe”. I loved it so much that I made one for myself too!
And at the bottom of this post you too can have this print! A little Christmas present from me to you my sweet friends.
I went a little crazy with ribbon this year thanks to Hobby Lobby! I wrapped, tied and added a bow to anything that I could! Touches of my favorite (low maintenance greenery!) were my touches of green – boxwood and moss.
And a special little man has graced my mantel!
Since we are building fires we need to have wood piled up and ready to use. So I decided to wrap them up! I used wrapping paper from the $1 bins at Target and tossed in my moss wreaths from our Christmas Wish Party decorations.
A stacked pile of old soda crates on the other side of the fireplace, is a nice drink table for our chair nearby.
I hold this little bookcase very near and dear. My husband made it with his grandfather as a birthday gift for me many years ago. I put my favorite trinkets on it including coral from trips to Hawaii, black earthen ware from our honeymoon to Portugal, favorite photos and design books.
Of course I Christmas-fied the top!
Lastly our writing desk got dressed up with a little mesh, berries and Christmas balls.
Have fun this holiday season and enjoy EVERY moment with your family!Here is a sweet little present to download to place in your home:
