Yesterday was my family’s annual holiday home tour, a marathon day where we visit each other’s homes (12 in total) to see them decorated for Christmas and to eat yummy food at every stop. It’s a great day! You can check out shots from last year’s tour here.
I’m blessed to be surrounded by talented, creative, and loving women, and I get great ideas at every house. Here are a few highlights from this year’s tour:
The brightest, happiest kitchen. Check out that backsplash tile and the nativity above the microwave.
Love this Craftsman our friend Shelby and her husband fixed up. In the two photos below, you can see the original built-ins and a sweet breakfast nook—hallmarks of 100-year-old houses.
My mom does it again! The greenery on her chandelier kills me every year.
My sister Steph is in a new house this year, and she decorated her tables and built-ins so beautifully.
See those floral picks in the photo gallery?
My sister just remodeled this kitchen in her 1930s Tudor Revival. Amazing Rifle Paper Co. wallpaper, right? And you can’t go wrong with a hex floor.
That holly-berry/jingle-bell garland was one of my favorite decorations of the day.
These bottle-brush wreaths were a Hobby Lobby find and make these chairs look so sweet.
Oooh, I loved these chairs layered with pillows and a beautiful fringed throw. Beautiful without the traditional red and green!
Here’s the barn dreams are made of. My aunt lives in a tiny house on the property while she and her husband fix up the barn and finalize plans for a Craftsman-style house that will be built elsewhere on the land.
Cute angels kissing in the bathroom. And I adore that sled under the tree in the photo below.
So many pretty textures on this tree—glossy berries, paper ornaments, felt mistletoe, and striped ribbon.
No mantel? No problem. Just pick up the cutest stocking holders you can find and hang from a shelf.
I could pull ideas from these photos for days! Hope they are helpful for you too. Tell me, what Christmas traditions are your favorite? This home tour is pretty high on my list. •
