Hello in my home in the woods all decked for christmas! If you came here straight from Danielle’s home tour, welcome! I’m so happy you stopped by!
So first of all let me just say- what a year! Just like everyone else on the planet I’m glad it’s coming to an end! However, despite the struggles we’ve all went through it’s also the year that we where blessed with abundant family time. A year in which my kids has grown ,and laughed and played. And a year when we have finally moved here, to our forever family home!
It’s been almost four months now that we moved, and while we still have a long way to go ( I’m looking at you unfinished staircase, and you old carpet-abundant master bedroom) I’m still so happy to call this place our home and to decorate it for the season!
So one of the first things we did after moving was painting – first, the entire open space white, then the kids room, and lastly the front door. I just love how the red doors pop now! I added a wreath I made with dollar store supplies, and I think they look perfectly welcoming for the season now!
Right when you’ll come in in the main hallway there’s our diy advent calendar- my kids are so excited every night we open it- even though there’s nothing but little chocolates and candies inside!
After you go further and pass by the advent calendar you’re directly in the middle of our open space- the living room that connected to the dining room and to the kitchen
So in here I decided to go with lots of white, with a pops of red and pink this year- my kids are finally big enough not to play with my vintage ornaments- but still too small for me to decorate on the coffee table ( since it’s usually there play area!)
Then the dining area is right in between or family room and the kitchen- I just love how we are close to the christmas tree glow when we sit here- and how I can see it all from the kitchen island!
And as for the kitchen, I made this little hot cocoa station that’s usually on the kitchen counter – I just love it when decor gets practical- because hot cocoa is an everyday need am I right?
The rest of the kitchen is rather simple- a little garland on the kitchen window, a DIY festive cutting board and some greenery set the mood in this space!
Now, you won’t see our master bedroom today because it’s still awaiting some major renovations- but since our kids rooms are done ( there where some really old carpets and very dark brown walls here when we moved!) I decided to deck their rooms a bit!
Thank you so much for joining me in my home tour! I hope you found some simple inspiration for your holiday decorating!
