MERRY CHRISTMAS, friends! We have been in our home for just one month today! And I’m so glad you are here too! I’m still trying to find all my Christmas decor in the basement full of boxes but come on in and celebrate Christmas in the Great Room!
Today is the first Christmas tour of 2019! A big thank you to Sheila at Maison de Cinq for organizing our tour this year!
If you are coming from Shabby Fu Fu, WELCOME! Isn’t Janets Holiday home truly magical? She is beyond talented! Thank you for inspiring us Janet!!!
Welcome to StoneGable! I am thrilled to be part of this Christmas tour! Let’s start in the Great Room!
Oh, before we begin I want to remind you to get your Christmas GIFT CHECKLIST below. Keep all your gifts giving organized! Never forget a gift again!
This year’s Christmas decor was not at all what I had planned. Well, nothing about this Christmas was according to plan! I had no idea we would be here at Tanglewood!
I had planned on a white Christmas with just a taddy bit of red, but you know the old saying about best-laid plans!
I feel like the Tanglewood house needed a calm color palette this Christmas. We had the house painted Simply White before we moved in and I’m learning so much about how to decorate a room with white walls.
Last week we ripped out the original fireplace (you can see it HERE) and had a new surround, hearth and mantel built. What a difference.
This year’s Christmas decor is called Christmas In The White Woods. I have collected a rather large mish-mosh of trees over the years!
So, I thought I’d use them throughout our new home. Really they were one of the first Christmas things I found in the piles of boxes marked “CHRISTMAS”!
I created a little stand of woods right inside my home! I used Bottlebrush and accordion paper trees! Frosted trees and flocked! Glass trees and white bleached trees. Tall trees and tiny ones. Wide and narrow too!
Trees, trees everywhere you look!
On the mantel…
And in the foyer…
On the coffee table…
And on the sunny buffet!
There are even trees in the dining area…
And the Curlacue Chest…
But the star of this stand of white woods is the nine-foot flocked tree in the center of it all!
And Hobbes likes this tree best of all!
Thank you so much for stopping by! Now please head over to our host Sheila at Maison de Cinq! You will love her beautiful French style!
