Cozy Holiday Home Tour

As I hung ornaments and placed fun, cozy Christmas decor around our home this holiday season, I couldn't help but think about the little helper I'll have next year. With Baby K on the way in March, there is so much joy and anticipation for all that is to come- for both Christmas and for this new little life. Now that we've been in our home for over three years, and are celebrating our fourth Christmas here, I've got a pretty good feel for my decor style and preferences. There's nothing quite like making a house a home, especially around Christmas. So come on in, stay awhile, and take a peek at our cozy holiday home tour for 2016!

Our Front Room

This year our front room got a little farmhouse upgrade, so it's been even more fun to decorate. This space is the home of the tree, our beautiful new rustic pew, and an old sectional of Aaron's. I love adding pops of red to this room through fun Christmas pillows, paintings, and berries (which are my favorite). We went with white lights and white wrapping paper this year, and I love them both.

Aaron surprised me with a beautiful new burlap wreath  he bought from a lady at his school. I love having a wreath on the inside of the front door, safe from the weather and adding a little cheer to the room. My only purchase this year was a $5 "Merry Christmas" banner from Hobby Lobby. It's hanging out behind our pew in a makeshift gallery wall (including my weekly pregnancy update banner).

The Dining Room

 This room also got a major upgrade last January, and I'm in love with this space ever since its rustic dining room reveal. Now I love switching out the flowers in the rustic centerpiece that Aaron made me. It's such an easy way to change with the seasons (and our burlap runner always stays). I also hang my dollar store ornament garland that I made, and then finish it off with pine cones and a few pops of red, green, and white.

The Basement

This is where we spend most of our time hanging out. Since we already have dark green walls, I add red and black buffalo plaid stocking and pillows, and decorate our mantle. I also add a pretty wreath and red candle to give some holiday cheer to our "door" coffee table. I love the coziness of this space.

All in all, I'm a big believer that home decorating doesn't have to break the bank. I love figuring out new ways to bring little odds and ends into our Christmas decor, and I'm finding that sometimes simplifying and keeping things cozy ends up bringing the best results. Thanks for stopping by for the 2016 tour, y'all! May your days be merry and bright!
