When the nights get shorter and shorter and the stars get brighter in the frosty night sky I know Christmas is getting close! And that means decorating! Lots of bowls of greens and pinecones and little trees and stars. I’m filling my home with stars… big and small! And tiny white lights play a big part in this years decorating too. They give StoneGable a magical feel. Why am I telling you this when you can see it for yourself?
I’m thrilled to be a part of…
A big thank you to COUNTRY LIVING and Ashley from CHERISHED BLISS for sponsoring this Christmas house tour! To see the very beginning of the tour, start at Cherished Bliss and follow it along to each blog.
If you are coming from SHADES OF BLUE INTERIORS, the blog before me on the tour, thanks for stopping by and welcome to StoneGable!
Today I’ll be showing your my downstairs. Stop back next week to see a detailed Christmas kitchen tour, a Christmas outdoor tour, a Christmas bedroom tour and a very special Christmas Tablescape!
Let’s start in the…
The family room is is relaxed and lived in! This Christmas I’m decorating most of the house in with a more traditional vibe than in years past. I have missed that classic look! It’s sorta nostalgic with lots of reds, greens, gold and a bit of dramatic black! Instead of dumping the sleigh of decorations in my home I’m fitting them into the decor I already have! My family room is a good example of my Christmas philosophy this year!
The breakfast room aka the eating area is gently decorated in greens and whites and black… my very favorite color combo. I kept the table clean and less cluttered because the open shelves across from it is all decked out and bespeckled with stars! Stop back tomorrow to see how to make the table centerpiece in about 10 minutes!
I always say that my kitchen is the workhorse of my home and for that reason I keep my decorations minimal. I love love love lemon cyprus trees. I’m using them all over the house this year. They make a grand statement on the island!
THE DINING ROOM
This grand sleigh steal the show in the dining room! He is filled with greens and ornaments and stars… lots of stars! A milky white nativity finds its home in my dining room this year.
This is the “tree” room this year! This room has a happy, classic mood! It’s where we will spend Christmas day reading the Christmas story, opening presents and being with family! I can’t wait!
I hope you have enjoyed the tour and have been inspired! And I hope your home is filled with gifts you cannot buy this Christmas… love, peace and joy!
You are in for a real treat! The next stop of the CHERISHED CHRISTMAS HOME TOUR is Emily’s THE WICKER HOUSE. Emily’s 90 year old cottage is open and airy and has a costal, bohemian feel. You will love it!!!
The next stop on your tour is THE WICKER HOUSE!
