Welcome, friends, to our Christmas Home Tour! Please kick back, relax, and stay awhile as I share our home all dressed up for the holidays. And because this wonderful time of year is all about spreading the Christmas cheer, I have 27 other bloggers’ holiday homes to share with you as well! Just scroll all the way to the bottom of this post to find their links.
For those of you who come here often, you know I’ve been busy decking the halls for quite some time now, and I’ve been bursting at the seams to show you how everything turned out. For those of you who are new here, I just want to say, WELCOME!
Our home is always a work-in-progress, and even though I just decorated my living room this summer, I’m already coming up with ideas to change things around. I promised myself I would enjoy the holidays and all my beautiful Christmas decorations before tackling any major DIY projects in here, because you probably don’t want to look at a half-decorated Christmas tree in the middle of sawdust, lumber, and paint cans, right? I thought so. 🙂
My Christmas decorating style is a mix of creamy white neutrals, natural wood elements, a little bit of rustic charm, and a whole lot of metallic and glitter glam. It wouldn’t be Christmas without glitter all over your floors for weeks, right? I love keeping this neutral color scheme because it allows me to change things up year after year without having to completely scrap everything I have and start over. The look I was going for is warm, cozy, inviting, and the perfect space to curl up with a soft blanket, some hot cocoa, and your favorite Christmas movie. Let’s start the tour!
I love using big spools of ribbon as garland on the tree. There are a ton of different options you can use, but this burlap and lace I found just melts my heart.
Our short ceilings don’t allow for much of a tree topper, so I pair a small gold star with a big burlap bow to draw the eye upward.
This little area by the (faux) fireplace might be my favorite spot in the house. A cozy rug, a mini tree, our burlap stockings, and plenty of candlelight. The boys and I have cuddled up here to read Christmas stories quite a bit this season.
Antlers and jingle bells… one of my favorite combinations. I am a firm believer that adding a few jingle bells makes just about anything feel festive for the holidays!
When I want to add an instant coziness to the house, a couple soft blankets and throw pillows will always do the trick.
Here’s a few photos that I shared of my Christmas kitchen last week, but be sure to click over HERE to see the full reveal!
The rest of our house is either under construction (ahem… my office) or a hot mess right now… our maid seems to have taken a vacation for the past year or two… 😉
So this is all the house tour I’m going to share this year, but I hope you’ve enjoyed taking a peek inside our home! I’m off to grab a cup of hot cocoa and read The Polar Express to the kiddos for the 948th time, but I wanted to wish you and your family a very merry Christmas and happy new year!

Wow, Liz, such a beautiful job!! I love all of your holiday touches. Your tree is gorgeous, and your fireplace and mantel is so cozy and pretty! And as always your photos are stunning!!
Thank you so very much, Chelsea! The sun wouldn’t come out that day, so it wasn’t easy to get these shots! I’m glad you could stop by and see the home tour! 🙂
Love it all- it looks beautiful and festive without being overwhelming.
Thank you so much, Jessy! I love all the holiday decor, but I don’t want it to be overwhelming and take over the entire house. Little touches here and there is all you need! So glad you stopped by to visit our home tour. 🙂

You are too sweet, Jenna! Thank you so much!
Your home is stunning Liz!! That faux fireplace is my favorite too!! Can you share the wall color in your living room?? Love how open and bright it is!! Fabulous job!!
Hey Lisa! I would be more than happy to share… it’s Woodlawn Colonial Gray by Valspar. I love this beautiful warm gray color. Thank you so much for stopping by to see our home tour! 🙂
Enjoy those snuggles and reading time… next thing you know, you look up, and they are taller than you… 18… and a Senior in high school.
Happy Holidays!! Your home looks warm, lovely and the perfect place to spend Christmas 🙂
I can’t even think about that day yet, Shannon! I keep hoping my babies will miraculously stay babies forever, but I know that won’t be true. Think I can convince them to sit on my lap and read The Polar Express even when they’re 18? 😉 Wishing you a very Merry Christmas, sweet friend!
Adore it, Liz! You did such a great job!!! really gorgeous… so glad to have you as part of the tour!

Came over from Stephanie Lynn. Ireally like the candle lantern on the piano. Could you share where you got it and when?
Hey Andi! So glad you came to visit! I got the lantern from Home Decorators Collection, but I’m not seeing this exact one on their site anymore. They have all kinds of other pretty lantern options too though!
I want to live with you! Your home is so beautiful and I love the Christmas decor! I need to actually hire you as a decorator 🙂
I think we can definitely make some kind of an arrangement. 😉 Merry Christmas, sweet friend!
I love your Christmas tree!
Beautiful post! 🙂
