Welcome to another year of our Christmas home tour! I'm so excited to join the Meaningful Holiday Home Tour again this year, hosted by the incredibly talented Laura of Meaningful Spaces. The homes on the tour so far have been just gorgeous. If you're coming over from Honeybear Lane, welcome! Let's begin the tour.
I was really inspired by a black and white color palette this year, as well as lots of greenery. I especially love pops of black in our home because it stands out so much among all the white and neutrals.
This black and white wrapping paper from Sugar Paper x Target was perfect and the polka dot is so cheeky!
We got a new flocked Christmas tree this year and I really love it! I had purchased our old one secondhand and it was in pretty poor shape. This new one is so sturdy and does not shed too much for a flocked tree. I love that the branches aren't so tight that I can nestled some good sized ornaments on the boughs - my favorite look! (Looks like it's sold out right now but there are similar ones here and here)
I still love our gorgeous velvet cream stockings, which I dressed up this year with black and white striped ribbon. Mirrored stars finish off the mantel paired with our flocked garland.
As always, the shelves are one of my favorite things to style. It's so easy to make them feel festive with just a bit of greenery and a few seasonal touches.
These gorgeous velvet wrapped trees made a comeback from last year, and I'm loving them with twinkle lights strung in between!
Our dining room turned out even better than I had hoped. I slung that pine garland over the art piece on a whim and it ended up tying the space together so perfectly.
I added mini wreaths on the back of each chair with the same striped ribbon, which tied in so well to the modern black candle holder.
I've started to change out the decoration on the range hood seasonally and I love the simple pine wreath this year. Black accents again came in through the darling pine tea towel paired with plaid.
One of my favorite touches this year was adding these little gingerbread cookies and candy canes on our island tray. And that little miniature house is actually a matchbox! Fun little moments like that are the best part of holiday decorating to me!
Even at the holidays I keep our bedroom in an all-white color palette because it's our escape. We love for it to be calming and peaceful and just a few Christmas accents made it feel special yet serene.
This blush pink throw blanket is always everyone's favorite thing. Sadly, it's no longer available from Nordstrom, but I found a few similar ones!
This white garland was a Home Goods find last year and I love it across our dresser. It adds holiday sparkle without being too loud.
A flocked white wreath on the mirror and bottle brush trees are all we needed for some Christmas layering.
Target had some great Christmas finds this year, especially their gold metal line, like this holly branch (I also loved the metal wreaths).
This little area at the top of our stairs makes my heart happy year round but especially at Christmas! Actually, I'm not sure I've shared it here on the blog before, though I've showed it on Instagram.
Everyone always wants to know the details on these amazing fern prints, and you can purchase them here. Mine are 24x36 on bright white canvas framed in Ikea Ribba frames.
This $35 Walmart tree is great affordable purchase! For the price I think it's good quality and the flocking is nice and thick. I dressed it up with some outdoor cafe string lights and plopped it in a big basket for instant charm.
Thank you all so much for coming by today! I hope you loved the tour as much as I loved getting our home ready for the holidays. It really is such a magical time of the year, and so special to be able to create a warm, cozy space for our family to create memories. Make sure you head over to the next stop on the tour - Kelly of The Greenspring Home. She is one of my very favorite bloggers and instagrammers, with the most amazing house she and her husband have renovated. Go say hello!
