I’m excited to bring to you my Christmas Home Tour on how I decorate for the holidays in my Family Room, Living Room/Study and of course my favorite room… the Dinning Room. Each room is filled with beautiful inspiration for the holiday season.
Two quick side notes before we dive in…I’ve not decorated yet this year. My girls really don’t like when I do it too early and my oldest loves to help when she’s home from college. These are to inspire you when you get around to! Also, I have a lot of home decor that comes from Wayfair. They have a great Christmas/Holiday Home shop here!
Welcome to my home…Let’s get started!

Our Family Room might be my favorite room in our home. The french doors allow in so much light making it such a happy place. It truly shines during the holidays. I shared a full Family Room Reveal here including the paint color (which I get asked about all the time) and another moire recent updates, here.
Our tree could be easily recreated and is filled with decorative and sentimental ornaments. First, I layer in small and medium clear and white glass balls for filler and shimmer. Next, is always my collection of mercury glass ornaments and then the fun color for the year or old fashioned favorites. I only added a few in these photos as the girls wanted to wait until December to add their favorites and finish the tree when I photographed this last year.
They were not exactly happy I put it all up so early! I have a bunch of holiday purists in my home! We’ll be playing Christmas carols and drinking Peppermint Hot Chocolate and munching on these Peppermint Chocolate Coconut Macaroons when we complete the tree. I’ll share the final on Instagram stories when we do!
One of my favorite things to showcase during Christmas is my collection of Nutcrackers. I didn’t set out to collect them though. It just happened and they make me so happy even with the bit of wear the older ones show.
These shaggy (Similar) cashmere pillows on the sofa add just the right amount of softness and texture to the sofas. Another great touch is to make your home cozy for the holidays is a lush throw draped on either the sofa or chair. I see this in almost every family room I see in magazines. It is a great way to add color as well. These Ugg throws are so amazingly soft. I love this rich navy and how it compliments the other decor in my family room. I’ve also added a cream throw to the love seat in my breakfast room. They would be a great gift and are in two of my Gifts Guides which are linked at the bottom of this post.
I know it is a trend to coordinate stockings with your Christmas decor but these will forever be on our mantle. My super talented mother needlepointed a stocking for each of my girls for their first Christmas and they are so very special to us. Here is a link to similar needlepoint stocking which are pretty darn cute as well.
Another favorite of all our Christmas decorations is the hand-made nativity scenes. My older girls made these during their Sunday School Class when they were in second grade. These precious teachers retired but I was able to get the patterns so that all my girls could have this special memory.

The touches of garland, faux fur and red amaryllis make it happy and festive. It is a peaceful and inspiring place to work each day.
