With so many talented women and amazing ideas, I feel like a slacker.  But, here’s our Christmas home tour.  How ’bout we start in the family room.  Because the fireplace is in here, it got the most attention.

Christmas-Home-Tour-Family-Room Our mantel is decked out in bright colors, including a short strand of the felt garland I made. Christmas-Home-Tour-Mantel-Detail The merry & bright art is something I sketched out and painted on a piece of black foam from the Dollar Tree. Christmas-Home-Tour-Merry-and-Bright-Art For the past four years, I’ve made silhouette ornaments of each family member.  And in years past, I’ve hung those ornaments on stands to place on a shelf.  This year, the silhouettes mark each stocking, including a custom paint color. Christmas-Home-Tour-Boys-Stocking-Detail Our deep green chevron coffee table adds more pattern and color.  When paired with red plaid scarf pillows, it’s a slight twist on traditional red and green. Christmas-Home-Tour-Scarf-Pillow-and-Mantel Original scarf tassels are a fun touch, too. Christmas-Home-Tour-Scarf-Pillow Next to the fireplace is slightly less colorful and more glam. Christmas-Home-Tour-Bar-Nook Lots of gold, white, some black, and a bit of blue.  Ben’s first deer has a glitter star.  You know, to girl him up a little. Christmas-Home-Tour-Bar-and-Wood-Stack On the other side of the room I sewed plaid flannel pillow covers.  Nothing says cozy like flannel, I always say. Christmas-Home-Tour-Couch-Pillows This buffalo check is great all year, too. Zipper-Tutorial-Finished-Pillow In our less finished (okay, not even close) living room, I decorated the entertainment center.  Though we have plans to build doors to hide the ugly electronics and cords. Christmas-Home-Tour-Entertainment-Center Gold on navy Holy Night song lyrics are Christmas-y, without screaming Christmas. Christmas-Home-Tour-Stars-Print Below is a wintery scene, complete with bottle brush trees, a hedgehog family, and squirrel. Christmas-Home-Tour-Winter-Terrarium The dining room decor is much simpler.  Our tree is in the corner. Christmas-Home-Tour-Dining-Room-and-Living Large jingle bells hang from the chairs. Christmas-Home-Tour-Dining-Room And another snowy scene sits on the table.  A cheap acrylic frame from Michael’s holds Epsom salt, trees, and mini birds. Christmas-Home-Tour-Dining-Winter-Scene And a bokeh tree, because I can’t help myself. Christmas-Home-Tour-Bokah-Tree Thanks for stopping in!  Pop over to Cuckoo 4 Design.  Don’t forget to check out the rest of the tour.

  1. Can I tell you how much I love your bright little garland!?! It is so cute and I love how colorful & festive your tour is…I have never done the bright decorations, but I love them so! Every time I see someone do them, I want to go and change all of mine out. It’s so cheerful! And I was just wondering how in the world have I not been following you on IG! Off to do that, now! So fun being on this series with you!😉 Jesse

    1. Hey Jesse!

      Thank you so, so much for your super sweet compliments! I always seem to go with bright holiday stuff. I love the muted and natural, but then I see bright, shiny things and cannot resist. It’s a sickness. :) And I agree, we should team up more often. 😀

      Thanks!
      Amanda

    1. Hi Kim!

      The bright green glitter trees are last year’s clearance finds from Wal Mart. I haven’t been there in a while, so I’m not sure if they have them this year. The other trees and mini birds are from Hobby Lobby (in the doll house section). I made the hedgehogs with polymer clay, but Etsy has so many adorable mini options. Seriuosly, if you like minis, be warned.😉

      Thanks!
      Amanda

  2. I just love everything about this space! OMG. My fave? Everything. Haha…no, really..the mantel takes the cake but I also love your styling on your shelves and the little yellow terrarium with trees and snow nestled inside. Perfection. Thanks so much for sharing chica!
