Christmas House Tour

I have been posting so many Christmas projects getting ready for this one day… My Christmas House Tour.

It’s finally here! Which, by the way, happens to be my birthday.

I’d like to thank Jen from Migonis Home for hosting such a great event and including me!

When it comes to Christmas decor I am a red girl all the way!  I will usually change up the accent color that I am combining with the red but red has to make it’s way in there!  This year the accent colors were black, navy and metallics.  I used some of each of those colors in different rooms.

I bought a plaid tablecloth back in October from Marshall’s and it set the tone for all of this years Christmas House Tour.  If you saw my post about my Christmas tree garland, then you know exactly how it all started! BUT that wasn’t the end of that tablecloth…

See my plaid bow…more tablecloth!  The white deer heads are Christmas ornaments I bought at Walmart.

As you can see for my living room I concentrated on mostly accenting with black.

The MERRY & BRIGHT Sign was a DIY from last year.  I have a full tutorial on how I made it on the blog as well.

This year I wanted new stockings so I made DIY Drop Cloth Stockings.  They were quite simple to make.  Are you seeing a pattern here??? I tend to do lots of easy DIY.

I love using my vintage laundry basket that I scored this summer at a yard sale for $5.

Our kids have always taken turns putting the gold star on the tree…I love this tradition.

I posted my Dining Room Christmas decor last week but here are a few pictures of that space as well.  This room already has the reds, blacks, and navy in the furniture and fabric so for my Christmas decor I used metallics.

For my kitchen I went with a snowman theme.

  1. Thanks so much Krista!! Luckily I had figured out years ago how to sew the stockings, otherwise it wouldn’t have been as easy. Great to tour with you as well. Have a great weekend ~Sonya

  2. I love it all Sonya- so many pretty, fresh, and bright touches and beautifully executed DIY projects. I love your plaid edged drop cloth stockings… I made some too but I think I would call my post (if I ever write one) “how not to sew Christmas stockings”… lol. At least I figured out what to do now! I love that wreath with the deer heads on it – so fun!! It was great to be on this tour with you- I’m sharing your tour on my FB page this weekend and pinning, of course!

  3. Hello and Happy Christmas to you sweet Sonya. You know… I opened up your tour along with a few of the other girls, and it inadvertently got closed before I could comment. I knew I was missing someone!! I so enjoyed you tour. I adore the big wire basket with your gifts by the fire. What a wonderful way to use that!! The tree is complete magic and the house looks marvelous. I love and the red, black and white. Merry holidays! xo ~Shan

  4. Girl, I am with you – gotta have my red in there for Christmas – otherwise it just doesn’t feel right!!! And I know I’ve already told you, but I’ll say it again – LOVE the Merry & Bright sign!

  5. Love that vintage laundry basket! What a great idea to put gifts in there… and I adore the ornaments hanging from your chandelier and the bottle brush trees! 🙂

  6. So happy you stopped by the blog Kelly! That hat has been around my Christmas decor for years but it’s the first time I’ve used it this way. Merry Christmas ~Sonya

  7. So, so beautiful! I absolutely adore your mantel decor! Thank you for sharing your gorgeous holiday home with us… pinned!

  8. Sonya I think everything looks so welcoming and warm. I love all your little trees! Enjoyed being on the tour with you today…Happy Christmas!

  9. You’ve just made my day! I have been drooling over all of your recent renovations and decor…LOVE it ALL!! Thanks so much for the sweet comment and stopping by the blog. ~Sonya

  10. Ahhh I love your style! It’s actually just like my decor this year, ha! You did such an amazing job, can’t wait to see the rest!

  11. I am drooling over that vintage laundry cart… not to mention the price!! It all looks beautiful- and Happiest of Birthdays to you as well!! xoxo
