Christmas home tour 2015

It’s time for our Christmas home tour 2015! 2015 was good to us! We are traditional Christmas people! We love celebrating little baby Jesus! We love Celebrating the incarnation of God. We have a traditional and colorful nativity! We go and cut down a tree the day after thanksgiving! Husbs has a village from the eighties that we have under our tree. We go caroling with friends, have “It’s a wonderful life” Christmas parties, go to “Messiah” sing alongs, and go look at Christmas lights!  To keep up with tradition, we also use lots and lots of red in our decor!

I have husbs to thank for converting me to his Christmas celebration ways. Normally, our house has a fairly neutral palette and although no one could accuse me of having a highly gaudy home this Christmas, i think that currently my home is as adventurous as it was ever going to be this year. Look at the red and gold balls and my little red grain sack lines in the pillows!

You can find more on the Christmas grain sack throw pillows on the post i did right before this one.

We love it! Husbs loves it which makes me happy! This is only our second Christmas together, and this year, our house is more festive then it was the year before and i suspect that should we be entrusted with kids someday, it will only get more festive from here. Husbs lets me do whatever i want to do to the house throughout the year and in light of that, Christmas is the time when i especially consider his desires and gladly lest him help me decorate.

Pottery barn inspired advent calendar

You can see more of the advent calendar in the pottery barn inspired advent calendar post i did a little while ago.

I am sure that a tree decorated with blue and silver balls, a small white nativity, and a very neutral Christmas decor palette would look a lot daintier and in-style but then i have to remember that this is a home and not a studio(though my house does, at times, double as a studio). Real lives are lived here. Real people are entertained here! Real  memories are made here. I want to have a home that is pretty and clean,yet extremely cozy and laid back for me and my people to take refuge. I do not want a home that constantly feels staged so that children can’t play, people can’t put their feet up,  messes can’t be made and true comfort can’t be experienced.

Because of that, I strive to take his likes and loves into consideration. I do, however, still insist that we have white and not colored lights on the tree! Everything else is fair game!

Merry Christmas!

Make sure to celebrate the birth of the King of Kings!

  1. Just lovely Vanessa! My faves are the Christmas village and the advent calendar! Thank you for joining the 12 days of Christmas Blogger Tour Link Party! Merry Christmas!

  2. Well, I think it all just sounds magical! A lot like my Christmas’s when I was young and still today. However this year we haven’t made it out to look at lights yet. Seen a lot while going to and fro though. Christmas would not be Christmas to me without pops of red. I also am a ticking lover so your pillows hit a home run with me. Love the pottery barn knock off advent. I copied one I saw quite a few years ago in their magazine using a large canvas and tags. Thanks for sharing with Share Your Cup. Wishing you a very Happy New Year!
    hugs,
    Jann
