A Very Merry Christmas Holiday Home Tour {Holiday Home Tour Part 1}

Do you love getting to peek into the homes of fabulous bloggers as much as I do?  It’s totally not creepy to look into other people’s houses if they’re inviting you in, right? 😉

Today I’m sharing my holiday dining area and kitchen in Part 1 of my holiday home tour!

A big thanks to Carrie, from Lovely Etc. for inviting me to take part in the “A Very Merry Christmas Home Tour” this year!

My “eating area”, as I call it, is an evolving space in our home.  I’ve recently added a jute rug and some industrial chairs, and I love the character these items have brought to this area.

Decorating the tabletop is always so much fun!  I grabbed a lot of new accessories, including the table runner and the little faux Christmas tree, at Target this year to create an eclectic holiday table.

Using sparkly stocking charms to create a monogram Christmas tree with all of our initials makes this centerpiece personal and unique.  I also made some chalkboard tag ornaments with fun holiday sketches and messages.

I wanted to be creative with the place settings, so I used a sprig of red berries labeled with each of our names.  I like the pop of color and natural element that it adds to the table.

If loving a sparkly reindeer is wrong, then I don’t want to be right.  You’ll find these everywhere in my holiday decor this year!

Our house has a pretty open floor plan.  It can be challenging to decorate, but when it all comes together, it’s so satisfying! 😉

In a last minute move, I switched it up in our eating area by moving a bench from the foot of our bed to the dinging room table.  I am in love with the seating in this space right now.  I love a perfectly put together “mishmash” of seating…does that even make sense??

Our kitchen is looking festive and holiday-ready too! Vintage Santa accessories mixed with some pops of red make the kitchen bright and cheerful.
