This year’s Christmas decorating had lots of trees, little houses with shiny rooves and a bit of glitz and sparkle! Yesterday I shared the first part o my Siver And Gold Christmas Home Tour and today I’m taking you to the back part of our home. It’s a bit more casual and comfy! So please come in and look around! I’m so glad you are here
This year I took a softer and less cluttered approach to Christmas, at least in the family room, breakfast nook and kitchen. StoneGable will be packed to the rafters with company and overnight guest until after the New Year so I wanted the most lived in part of our home to be easier to maintain and entertain in.
I hope you have enjoyed yesterdays Christmas Home tour of the living room, foyer and dining room. If you missed it you can see it HERE. Here’s a little peek…
Those of you who have been part of the StoneGable community for any time know that I start decorating for any new season or holiday with my mantel. It plays a large part in the setting the mood for the rest of my home. It all started with finding a cut out wooden village!
See the rest of the story and the whole mantel HERE.
I painted a dozen or more little paper mache houses to work into my Christmas decor. And I silver or gold leafed the rooves. Oh, they are so so pretty in real life!
We just put a new area rug in the family room. I loved my sisal one but it was hard for the little ones to play on. This rug is so soft! And because it is a wool rug it can take a lot of punishment and still look great. Another perk, it’s reversible!
Our new sofa came with two pillows and I was able to select the fabric. I LOVE these pillows! I would really like another pair for my master bedroom, they work so well up there too. For now, I’m keeping those ugly arm protectors on the sofa. Remember I now have a house of little sticky fingers and two big dogs.
I have very little evergreen in the family room this year. Instead, I opted for the soft look of seeded Eucalyptus. Such a pretty, billowy look, don’t you think?
I’ve been collecting Mongolian pillows for about four years. This is why I love them…
You can see more Christmas decor in my breakfast room and information about beautiful live wreaths and centerpieces from Lynch Creek Farm HERE.
Christmas is less than a week away and from my home to your… MERRY CHRISTMAS!
