Our Home Tour...The Christmas Edition!

Well the big day is here!!  It's my turn in the Blogger Stylin' Home Tour series to show you guys how we get all holly and jolly around here!  This awesome event is a blog hop, so if you are here from A Creative Day, thanks so much for stopping by!  I hope you like what you see.

I gave my Insta-friends and readers a peek at my Christmas inspiration this year...red plaid, B&W stripes, mixed metallics, cozy textures, anything shiny and tons of string lights.  I used a lot of decor we already had, and added a few DIY touches, that ended up being some of my favorite accents.  Our house has officially been taken over by glitter, and I'm not sure if we'll ever get it back!! ;)

Now sit back and get reallllll cozy...because I've got entirely too many pictures for you to check out!!


























And since I’m all about keeping things real with you guys, I couldn't help but post these last few pictures.  Yes, I know…the quality is poor.  The pictures are grainy.  They were clearly taken with my iPhone in “poor lighting”…but this is one of my favorite times of the day in our house.  The sun is just coming up, last weekend’s snow storm is still covering the ground and our string lights are the only thing switched on.  The house is aglow and so cozy.  It gives me one of those feelings that I wish I could bottle up and keep forever.

I was so close to deleting these photos and not sharing because, well, who wants to look fuzzy, amateur photography…but then I realized these are the best pictures to post.  They aren't perfect, but they make me feel Christmas….feelings of warmth, love and gratitude.









I hope you guys enjoyed the tour and thank you SO very much for stopping by!! Make sure you head straight over to Shannon Berrey Design now!

  10. LOVE the second to past picture of Perny looking out the window!! It all looks great - expecially with the SNOW outside!

    This is kind of giving me heart palpitations. I have put some wreaths and lights up outside, but done not a single thing inside. I need to get on it this weekend! We are hosting Christmas so inside decor is mandatory! :)
