Neutral Christmas Living Room

So far in the Seasons of Home holiday series, I’ve shared our winter wonderland Christmas kitchen and a very sweet holiday dessert tablescape in the dining room, but today I’m giving you a tour of probably the most exciting space to decorate for Christmas… our living room! This is the room where the big tree gets put up and we open presents on Christmas morning and curl up and watch Elf and the Grinch together, so it’s safe to say that I probably enjoy decorating this space the most each year since we spend the most time in here.

If there is one childhood memory that stands out the most during the holidays, it is being in the living room with all the lights out except for the lights on the tree and listening to Bob Seger sing Little Drummer Boy, Stevie Nicks croon Silent Night, and Whitney Houston belt Do You Hear What I Hear. I still listen to those songs every year as I put up the tree and turn on the lights for the first time with the boys. It’s simple and magical and memorable, and I hope to share this feeling of home, comfort and happiness with you as I take you on a little tour of our Christmas living room this year.

This adorable dessert table is perfect for the holidays and kids! Celebrate Christmas with gingerbread houses, a donut tree, festive cakes, cookies and more!

Vintage Photo Artwork in the Bathroom

Decorating with vintage photographs to add character to any space

It's been on my to-do list forever to find or make some new artwork for the bathroom, and this week inspiration finally hit me. It feels so good to rearrange just a few things (most of which I already had at my house) and come up with a fresh, new look in hardly no time at all. A few years ago I hung two wooden crates on the wall above the toilet (you can find that tutorial in my book), and every time I walk in the bathroom I think to myself, … [Continue reading...]
