Christmas Home Tour 2017

Hello friends and welcome to the Meaningful Holiday Home Tour, hosted by the talented Laura at Meaningful Spaces. If you're joining me from the last stop on the tour Lindsay Hill Interiors, I'm so glad you're here!

Today I'll be sharing our main floor with you, our dining room, kitchen and living room. I keep this space fairly neutral so it's cohesive, but wanted to add a lot of sparkle and coziness for the holidays. I chose a palette of white and gold with some blush and wine mixed in.

Would you believe I found our flocked tree last year at a thrift shop?!

I love how cozy this room feels. I felt like it might be hard to make an open-concept space cozy, but with the stockings and all the greens it really does feel festive.

One of my very favorite ways to decorate during the holidays is just to add fresh greenery everywhere. I love it draped on shelves and in trays, and it's such an easy way to make everything feel like Christmas.

I usually prefer neutrals but I found this beautiful wine velvet pillow at TJ Maxx and it really inspired me to add it in this year.

I also added the wine and blush colors to dress up our cream stockings a bit.

In the dining room, I added a simple tablescape using these beautiful velvet trees, some pinecones and twinkle lights.

I absolutely love the texture these pretty trees bring. They are classic and modern at once, my favorite thing.

In the kitchen I added more greenery. One of my favorite features of our kitchen is the custom hood so I dressed it up with a simple pine wreath.

The backs of our barstools got some small wreaths as well. We absolutely love these barstools and how toddler proof they are!

I'm so excited for decorating gingerbread houses with our girl this season. I'm sure hers will be much more colorful than this one : )

There's a reason everyone loves these little ceramic houses...they are just so cute! It's so cheery having them on our kitchen counter.

Thanks so much for taking our Christmas tour! Make sure you stop by my friend Kelly (The Greenspring Home) next. She is one of the sweetest people and has the most stunning home that she and her husband have renovated beautifully.  And there are links for the rest of the tour below - each is so beautiful and it's so fun to see how unique the decor is!

2017 Christmas Gift Guide

I have so much fun every year picking out items for the holiday gift guide, and this year was no exception! There is just something so special about giving a truly beautiful gift, especially when it's something they'll love but not necessarily buy for themselves. I hope this guide gives you some great ideas for all the ladies on your list and at every price point. Many of these items would be great for hostesses, moms, mothers-in-law, sisters and friends. Stay tuned for a toddler gift guide also, as well as one for the guys in your life. Happy gifting

This is such a fun gift for anyone who loves to snap photos. Print them out instantly and stick them anywhere.

Tocca is one of my very favorite perfume brands, and this little mini set is perfect to try out a scent and very well priced at only $20

Need I say more?

Perfect for the baker in your life and pretty enough to leave on the kitchen counter

I love this sweet little detail as a hostess gift or to tie onto a package

Everyone raves about this silk pillowcase to help with hair breakage, wrinkles and more. Pure luxury.

A pretty, simple gift all the gals on your list would love

This one is on my personal wish list, as I'm always looking for simple daily jewelry.

The patterns on these tea towels are gorgeous. I want to turn them into pillows! Another great option for the hostess or chef

Inexpensive but looks so chic

Blush and cream look so good on most skin tones, and plaid is always a favorite

How darling are these?

The prettiest little stocking stuffer

I got a Naked palette as a Christmas gift probably four or five years ago and I still use it daily. Such a great investment!

Voluspa makes the best scents and the white tin feels so elegant


I just ordered the iPhone X along with the pink gingham case. There are so many darling pattern options though!

These are only eight dollars! So cozy and a great gift to have on hand for teachers, co-workers, etc.

A classic that anyone would love and a great price point

I've heard people rave about this hair care set

You had me at stripes and scallops

Best of the One Room Challenge

There were so many beautiful room make overs in this round of the One Room Challenge! Here are a few of my favorites

This stunning kitchen from The Leslie Style (who basically renovates a whole house every 6 months and kills it every time!). You have to see her pink sink!

I found Erin Kestenbaum on Instagram and love her work. Her bathroom makeover did not disappoint!

Vanessa Frances is probably one of my favorite designers and this basement she designed for she and her daughter is nothing short of perfection

Room for Tuesday does some incredible work and this bathroom makeover (apparently a lot of us chose a bathroom!) is just beautiful - understated and elegant

And last but not least Coco and Jack (an official participant) redid their living room and the results are stunning. Another of my personal favorite designers!

Look for Less: Gray and Gold Play Kitchen

I shared this deal on Instagram and it went crazy! In fact, this play kitchen is sold out almost everywhere right now but I still wanted to link everything for you so you can keep your eyes out before the holidays. We got this darling gray and gold play kitchen for Lexie for her second birthday and it's such a hit! She loves playing with it and I love that it's pretty to look at : ) It looks so much like the Pottery Barn version but for significantly less. I bought ours on Wayfair and I find they generally have the lowest price by at least a few dollars, but I will also link to other places around the web so you can check for restocks and sales. I typically see it for about $145-165 (sometimes much more, but want you to get a good deal!). The cheapest I ever see it is when it is on Zulily, but it sells out super fast over there so you have to be quick. This would make the sweetest Christmas gift!

Oh and by the way - I hate the little notepad graphic on the fridge, so I just taped some Rifle Paper Co. wrapping paper over it to match our decor. You could do this with any kind of paper you like!
