Christmas Home Tour

Come on in, grab a cup of coffee or cocoa, and enjoy the Christmas home tour! I’ll start out by saying our house is never this clean, things were shoved out of the way to take pictures, we don’t have a perfect home, and it took days to clean up just so I could take a few photos. :)

Ok, whew, glad that’s out of the way…

Here’s a snippet of what’s to come.

Christmas Home Tour |

If you’re visiting from Storywood Designs thanks so much for stopping by!

Now come on in!

Christmas Door to Home Tour |

The huge lit wreath will greet you as you come in. It’s from Tree Classics and I love it! It’s like, really big.

As you come in the office is on the left, and the stairway on the right.


Here is the office and more of a closeup of the gift wrapped present hutch.

Christmas Office |


The entryway wall is across the way. I went simple this year and used my dollar store gold wreath I made, and used red poinsettias.

Christmas Entry Table |

Can’t go wrong with traditional red and gold. Those gold cone things are also from the dollar store. Oh, and I stole Ellie’s lamp from her nursery. Bad mommy.

I have the nesting tables up here too with a little winter birdhouse on it.


And I had this big red bow already and just put it around the big mercury glass vase.


Simple simple!

Next up you walk into the living room. Again, I kept things simple this year, because really, the more you put out, the more you have to clean up and put away. And I didn’t want the holiday decorating to be stressful. Taking pictures and making sure the house is clean is stressful enough.

Christmas Living Room

That brown leather chair is usually where the Christmas tree is but things are moved around right now until the tree is gone.

You can see more pictures of our white flocked Christmas tree in this post. Love it!


Our mantel is on this opposite wall near the entryway too.

Christmas Mantel |


A red poinsettia on the living room tray makes it feel instantly more festive.


My grandmother made me this red and white quilt and it’s something I’ll treasure forever.


Next is the breakfast room and you can read more about the new table in there in this post

I didn’t do much in here. Just added my boxwood wreath to a cloche for the centerpiece.


I pulled out all the stops I tell ya.

And the kitchen, again kept simple, but still Christmasy. I’m telling you…just add a red poinsettia and people will be impressed.

Christmas Kitchen |

Read about our white kitchen in this post.

Then of course how to make the ornament wreath hanging on the pantry door here.

Christmas Ornament Wreath Tutorial |

By the way, this is a tasty red wine.


And guys that’s really about it for the house tour this year! I hate to leave you with a bottle of wine but that’s all I got. I didn’t decorate in bedrooms or bathrooms, just mostly focused on the downstairs areas that we use the most.

Christmas Home Tour |

As you can tell I love many different colors, different styles, and just try and make them work together. Do what you love and you will make this Christmas special no matter what. Because really, Christmas is not about pretty trees and decorated mantels or having the perfect looking home. It can be hard to lose focus of the real meaning of Christmas because of this Pinteresty-perfect world we now seem to live in, so just step back, take a deep breath, and thank God for your many blessings.

Now to see more decked out pretty Christmas homes, continue today’s tour of homes by visiting:

  1. Love it! I kept things really simple this year too!

  2. I love your office. Can you please tell me where you purchased your floor lamps? I never thought to get 2 floor lamps to balance out a room- but I think it’s just what my living room needs! Thanks for the inspirations.

  3. Melesa Garrison says:

    I love your home, it’s absolutely beautiful! Thanks for sharing!

    Melesa G ` Merry Christmas!

  4. Everything is so beautiful – and that quilt is amazing!

  5. I absolutely love your decor for the holidays! However, I also love your area rug in your family room as well as the runner in your foyer! Could you tell me where you found them?! I have been searching since July for rugs like yours..same colors too! Thank you!

  6. I LOVE it!!! So pretty :)

  7. Gorgeous decorations. Thanks for being honest about the fact that your house isn’t always spotless. Ive always suspected that there was a giant mess out of the camera shot on some blogs. Its refreshing that you admit it.

  8. So gorgeous, Emily! I adore your lit wreath on your dark front door so much! WOW!! And those presents in the wall unit totally rocked!

  9. Your decorations are so pretty! I love the colors you used and the white tree just sparkles! Merry Christmas! Hugs, Leena

  10. Emily, everything is lovely. I , too, like things simple yet with an elegant touch. You did an amazing job and I’m sure your family appreciates a less stressed wife and mommy by “keeping it simple”. Christmas Blessings to you all!

  11. Love it! The perfect combination of warmth and whimsy!

  12. Wow! You outdid yourself, Emily. And I’m with you, the more you put out the more you have to put away. For that reason, I went simple too.

    Leaving me with a bottle of wine….you’re a girl after my heart. :)

  13. The home looks great and thank you for sharing your home with us. I really enjoy that tree you have this year, it’s so white and glowing!

  14. Amen, amen, amen! You’re so right, Emily! It’s easy to feel not-good-enough when we focus too much on the “perfect” photos that everyone posts. Of course, if we only knew, other people’s spaces aren’t perfect any more than ours, are they?

    Your home looks lovely, and I thank you for opening your doors wide to us. God bless you this Christmas!

  15. Love it all, your home is beautiful! For Christmas and always! :)

    And great intro, I feel the same way! <3

  16. Your house is beautiful! I just posted this my own home tour this morning, then popped over to see what you have been up to. I started to read this post, and realized I started my post similarly to yours. Haha! Great minds think alike I guess , or maybe your great style has rubbed off on me over the years! :)
    Cheers, Lorie

  18. The most prevalent right around these Royal
    residence on Wheels that takes you to some intriguing posts of
    Rajasthan and your contacts with fervor are plain. This beautiful hilly paradise is surrounded by rambling hills, striking mountains, emerald
    forests and pine and oak trees. North India,
    South India and many other regions wise in tours and travel for India.

  19. Asking questions are genuinely good thing if you are not understanding anything completely, except this article provides pleasant understanding

  20. There is certainly a great deal to learn about this issue.
    I like all the points you’ve made.

  21. An intriguing discussion is worth comment. I do think that you ought
    to publish more about this issue, it may not be a taboo subject but usually people don’t talk
    about these subjects. To the next! Cheers!!
