Christmas Tour of Homes 2013

I’m so excited to not only be sharing my home tour with you today, but to also be kicking off the 2013 Christmas Tour of Homes! I’ve lined up some amazing bloggers who will be sharing their home tours with us this week. Every day I’ll add a link to each new tour at the bottom of this post, so be sure to check back so you can experience each tour! 

Christmas Tour of Homes 2013So, without further ado…let’s start this party! :)

Like a Saturday Christmas Tour 2013

Decorating my home for Christmas is one of my all time favorite things. I was that kid who would find the leftover decor so I could deck my own halls bedroom. It makes me so happy to create a cozy and festive space in our own home now! I have tons of photos to share, so this post will be much more visual than wordy. Enjoy! 

Like a Saturday Christmas Home Tour - Entry wayUpon entering our home, you’ll walk through our teensy entry way and into the living room. I hung my “Hark the Herald Angels” print from last year in the entry way, and place one of my tinsel wreaths on the mirror. {I’ll share more about my front porch later this week}.

Like a Saturday Christmas Home TourOur entry way is too small for a console table, so I keep a small table in a little nook right by the entry for keys, dog leashes, etc. I recently repainted it from black to a charcoal grey. Right now it hold these ceramic reindeer from Target {one a birthday gift from my sister}. I think these fellas shall stick around at least through winter.

Like a Saturday Christmas Home TourOur guest room is by far the most colorful room in the house, so I took my vintage Christmas theme and ran with it. I had fun adding festive touches in here. :)

Like a Saturday Christmas Home TourThe rose painting was done by my grandma many years ago. It’s one of my most favorite things in our house. I couldn’t resist adding more scrapbook sticker letters to my small globe collection.
