Creatively Living Christmas House Tour


This has been one of the first years (in my adult life) where I have been able to decorate a “finished” house.

We are usually in the middle of renovating something….if not everything, and so there are only so many rooms to decorate for Christmas.


However, this year I felt like I could deck the halls forever!

I think I’ve “finished” 1/2 the rooms in this house this past year, and that is a lot of spaces to decorate, compared to the past.

I will show you what I have done for now. However, it’s only the 8th of Dec, so I will probably re-post an updated house tour at the end of the month.

–The Dining Room–

I went all out in the dinning room this year. The new chair slips are my favorite part.

Lots of silver, black and white, with some rustic elements.

I think my next house will be rustic meets glam. Works perfect for a eclectic junk lover like me.

–The Living Room–

I didn’t do too much to the living room. Added these Dollar Store snowflakes here and there…

Some evergreen clippings, more snowflakes and Christmas lights seemed to work for my piano corner.

…and a little Christmas shelf decorating.

In a week or so, I may hang a ginormous grapevine wreath in the window. We’ll see if I find the time.

–The Kitchen–

I really didn’t do much to the kitchen either. I  just kept it simple with these these Dollar Store snowflakes to the open cabinet backs.

I love how they pop against the black chalkbaord paint.

–The Nursery–

I added a few simple things to the kid’s bedrooms.

A tree, a snowflake banner and some ornaments were my only additions to the nursery.

I only added a tree to the other two kid bedrooms, so I don’t think you’ll see pictures of them.

–The Basement–

The basement is another place where I added just a few things.

Some greenery, some sparkly silver and some snowflakes.

–Master bedroom–

I just updated this room with some new pics, it was an undertaking to get all the branches in here, but I had to try it.

…and I really like them.

I found these puffy, glitter snow flakes at a craft store and just taped them on the mirror.
