Christmas Home Tour 2016: A cozy living room

It’s the most wonderful time of the year and I am so excited to partner with a group of bloggers for a fun holiday home tour. If you got here from Taylor’s blog, welcome!


Well, to begin, let me share a little secret with you: It’s 2 weeks before Christmas and I have not purchased any gifts yet. Not one! but don’t worry, I am on top of things! Next week, shopping for Christmas gifts will be my life’s work. In the meantime, grab a cup of tea, or a cup of hot cocoa and pretend like you are taking a walk with me through my house. We will begin in the living room!





Like a lot of you, we have a tradition of driving to a Christmas tee farm and getting our tree the day after thanksgiving! So, on the day after thanksgiving, we went to the farm and picked out the tree of our dream only for me to get home and realize that I hate it!






It was not full at all, did not have a great shape, and had holes all over the place. What to do! What to do! Well, I took some shears to it, shaped it and that helped so much but there were still holes in it so what’s a girl to do but to add some fake snow, some ribbon, some large ornaments and call it perfect.







And Let’s be honest, can you really go wrong with how you decorate a Christmas tree? maybe its because I’ve been watching way too many hallmark movies here lately but the fact is, all that is needed for a tree to be perfect is love for the one that you decorate it with.





So, as you are getting to the end of your hot drink, think about this, how are you perfectly loving your little home by loving the people in it? Come back in a few days for the Kitchen! I can’t wait to show you!


Next on the tour is Audrey! Make sure you head over to see her gorgeous joy filled home!

  1. Oh your tree is perfection! But I totally know what you mean about getting one home and hating it…been there done that! Annnnd, I haven’t bought any presents either! Let’s hear it for the procrastinators!

  2. These photos are so gorgeous – everything is so beautiful! My house is so tiny, so I can’t really decorate for the holidays. I’m hoping in the next few years my boyfriend and I will be able to buy a bigger space and then I can decorate to my hearts content 🙂

  3. Vanessa – your home is so lovely and gorgeous! I adore your Christmas Coffee pillow – where’d you get it? I also love the ‘snow’ added to your tree – such a great idea in lieu of flocking!

    This is a beautiful tour and I’m honored to be a part of this with you!

  4. Vanessa I love what you did with your tree! It turned out beautiful! I also loved peeking in to your lovely home. You have such a gift for bringing it all together. Loved it!
