Hey guys! It is one of my favorite times of year. It is time to share my Christmas home tour with you! I love hopping from blog to blog to see the different ways people have decorated. If you are here from Janet's blog, WELCOME! If you haven't see her home yet, stop by after this tour. You won't want to miss it.
I usually have a theme when I decorate, like last year's gingerbread man theme. Or snowflakes like a couple of years ago. This year I decided that since my color scheme was a bit non-traditional, that I would not have a set theme. I have to say, I am loving the plum accents!
I built this wood Christmas village out of scrap plywood. Last year when I built the mouse house for my son, I had some dollhouse windows I didn't end up using. I bought a few more from Hobby Lobby and they worked great! I added some lights inside them and they light up at night.
To cover the TV, I used ⅛" plywood cut to size and simply painted it grey. The kids used a hole punch to made lots of dots and then they glued them on for me. It gives it a snowy effect.
My favorite view of my mantel is from the hallway looking through the archway.
I kept it pretty simple for hte gallery wall this year.
My favorite Christmas hymn, Oh Holy Night, and some simple printables make up the artwork.
This year I printed off some of our past Christmas photos to hang up under the gallery wall. I had such a hard time choosing!
I use to put the tree up in the front window, but when we added the reclaimed wood shelves, the window in between them seemed like a better place.
I know purple of any shade is not the "go to" color for Christmas, but this moody plum was a fun departure for me. You can see all the details of my tree and the ornaments (Complete with sources) in my post from the other day.
I used my new favorite paint color, Vine Leaf by Behr, to paint this believe sign. It was a fun little project and it adds so much to the shelves.
Dubbed "the reading chair" since it is usually in between the bookshelves, this spot is usually filled with one of my boys. They fight over this spot when they curl up to read. But really, with all this natural light, any spot is a good reading spot.
Thanks for topping by! The next home on the tour is Jenna Kate at Home.
And here is the full line up from this week.
