Happy Friday and 9 days til Christmas! I am excited to share Part II of our Holiday Tour with you! Last week, I shared the first part of our tour which focused on our main living spaces. At this time, our holiday decor is limited to our a portion of our first floor. As our family (hopefully) grows, I may extend this into bedrooms and also decorate spaces that have currently not been renovated. If a room is not renovated yet....it doesn't get any love!
Today I am excited to share with you our entry, kitchen, and a touch of holiday in our powder room. I have also taken some nighttime shots of the living/dining room which shows holiday decor at night with the the magic of Christmas lights!
I have not really shared many pictures of our kitchen yet. There are still some finishing touches that need to be completed but I thought I would share the current situation.
The Christmas touches in our kitchen are simple. A couple of wreaths have been added to bring in some beautiful greenery into a very white room.
Our cactus (yes, it's real) has been wrapped in twinkle lights and topped up with some playful reindeer antlers.
More fresh eucalyptus dresses our vent hood and a different variety serves as a simple centerpiece for our breakfast nook.
The branches by our sink are foraged from the PNW. This is a place close to my heart as we were married on Cannon Beach and I fell in love with the PNW during my honeymoon.
Unfortunately, I do not have the proper camera equipment to photograph small spaces (Ohhhhh Rebecca!!! :) ). I have a total of one powder room bath picture that I was able to photograph. I kept it super simple in the bathroom and added fresh eucalyptus in lieu of the usual rose.
Our entryway is not yet complete, but I still wanted to add some Christmas cheer for our guests to see when they walk in. I added lights and ornaments our current entryway decor. I added some fresh garland and a quick DIY art (yeah yeah, I know it looks like a 5 year old made it).
Now, I am really excited to share the night time tour of our living and dining room. I am at a 1st grade level with use of my DSLR camera but overall, I am pretty pleased with how these pictures turned out. I LOVE sitting in our living room with the Christmas lights on, a lit candle, hot tea, and some cheesy Netflix movie. Have you seen A Christmas Prince? Christmas in the Smokies? A Christmas Kiss? I love me some Lifetime-esque themed holiday movies.
Our dining area glows with the help of these little battery operated tea lights. They are such a great deal at $10 for 24 lights!
The tea houses are a buy from an after Christmas sale. However, similar ones can be found at Target here and here. You can make them your own by painting them and adding details such as gold garland, painted roofs, etc. The sky is the limit!
The mercury glass votive holders are from West Elm and World Market. Both are very budget friendly options and really add a touch of subtle Christmas decor to a space.
And here our tree glows in all her glory. She is the heart of the decor and omits the most beautiful warm glow. The light highlights the flocked goodness of the pine and reflects different colors of lights off the various glass ball ornaments.
Well folks, that brings us to the end of my tour and the week of tours. No matter what style you love, there are so many ways to bring in holiday decor into your home in a unique and special way. Hopefully you found some inspiration during the week! Thanks so much for following along!
