Christmas Home Tour 2013

Welcome to our home this Christmas, 2013! I had so much fun decorating these spaces, since they were renovated and redecorated during this past year (see my living room reveal here, dining room reveal here and kitchen reveal here). I didn't end up buying any new Christmas decor, other than greenery and ribbons, but having a 'new' space made all my 'old' decor seem fresh and different. Besides, I can't imagine using completely new decorations each year; my Christmas decor has been collected over the past many years, and it's a collection I cherish, and I'm sure to continue to add to year after year.

This post is already very long, and picture heavy, so I will let you enjoy the pictures, and keep my commentary to a minimum.

The Living Room:

Ahem, I didn't realize that ladder was there in the hall-evidence of our continued projects around here!

The stairway is a work in progress. Here you can see the start of our board and batten that will extend down the staircase, and a partially completed gallery wall. We are also painting the newel posts and baby gate, and adding a stair runner. Look for a reveal post in the near future!

The Kitchen:

The Dining Room:

We plan on adding a frame to the horse canvas. I was originally wanting to leave it as a stretched canvas, frameless, however, once it was up on the wall, it just seemed to need a frame.

The Sunroom:

Thank you for taking this tour of our holiday home!

Wishing you all the Merriest Christmas, and a wonderful New Year!

Linking my Christmas Home Tour to these parties:

I'd love for you to follow along with me on Instagram,  Pinterest, and Twitter.

Your home is beautiful, inviting, and inspiring. Thank you for the blog and lovely photos. Just wondering about the source of the horse picture in the dining room. Is there any chance that it is available anywhere? I know it is probably a unique piece of art, but I am looking for something very similar for my daughter.
Thank you.

Andrea, it is all just beautiful. I especially love that big basket holding the pinecones.

Everything looks so pretty! I love all of your natural arrangements you've made. My favorite is the one in the basket with the greenery, huge pine cones, and birch logs.

Everything is so beautiful! Can you please share where the fabric in your dining room came from for the drapes. Did it happen to come from Calico Corners? I have been looking for a buffalo check and that color looks like the perfect shade!
