Christmas Home Tour 2014 – Part 1
Welcome to my home all dressed up for a first annual Christmas Home Tour ! Grab a cup of nog and I will show you a photo tour of my decorated Front Porch and Foyer. Tomorrow I will share my Holiday Living and Family rooms. I have kept the Christmas decorations pretty simple this year to go with a new lighter style I am going for. I have already shared Christmas Kitchen- simple and elegant, Christmas Kitchen Eating Area- kept simple and Christmas Dining Room. Please use these links to see the other rooms and spaces that I decked out! So, let’s get started…
I took this picture just as the sun was setting…I love the twinkle of the lights! My decorating style is simple and elegant, so I kept what I displayed pretty minimal. Everything is green and red on the porch, with a few white accents. The stars and the red tree are new this year from Meijers. I think they up the “cute” factor alot! And it may just look like a white board from here, but the support for the green swag with red bells is part of my French Shutters Recycle project. I think my decorations have a rustic elegance… What do you think?
These garlands are years old…but the wreath is new from Michaels. The silk Poinsettias add so much color! I was afraid that the gold would clash with the silver on the door…but I think it works. What do you think?
I paired up my fav snowman with a star and a gift…looking good.
To get in the holiday spirit, I gave the porch a basket of gifts….
Right next to the tree sign that gives us so many important reminders of the season…
Please step inside and check out the foyer…
I love my French shutters, now sporting a little green wreath! The contrast with the dresser really makes it stand out!
A few silver accessories, greenery, birch candles and of course a little tree and the tabletop is done! The silver leaf candlesticks are from Homegoods and the Birch candles are from Michaels.
Pairing the shutter with a french wire basket filled with food gifts….
The Grandfather Clock belonged to my in-laws and is now a permanent fixture in the foyer. To offset all of the brown wood, I added a red bench to hold holiday pillows…I want to crawl under that throw!
A Pink Poinsettia and a burlap Paris candle create an interesting contrast…who hid that gift under there?
I hope you enjoyed this tour and please stop by tomorrow for Part 2. I would appreciate it if you would leave me a comment to let me know what you think. I would love it if you would follow me on Facebook, and Google+ . See you tomorrow and have a wonderful day – xx Christine
