One Room Christmas Tour


Have y'all been enjoying the Christmas tours that have been popping up all over blogland recently? (I have!) I'm so incredibly impressed with these women - and a few men! - who have transformed their homes so beautifully and really set the bar high for Christmas decor. And while I wanted to join these bloggers this year, it just wasn't realistic with moving less than a month ago and continuously trying to get house projects done. I had to let that idea go. 

But!

I was determined to at least get a tree up, decorate it, and add a few other festive touches around our home. Though it's nowhere near magazine-worthy, I figured it was probably more like what most "normal" homes look like around Christmastime, so maybe y'all can relate :). I'm calling this my "one room Christmas tour" because it's really that, and just barely! The house isn't quite ready for its closeup, so you'll see bits of the living room, but there will be more to come in the future - promise.

Welcome, and come on into our perfectly imperfect home!


I love boxwood wreaths, and when I spotted them at Trader Joe's I couldn't resist grabbing one for our front door. A big silver bow was all it needed to look festive.

Just inside the front door is our Christmas tree. We picked up this Frasier Fir at our local Ace Hardware store and walked it home - yes, walked it home! Ah, city living...how I love you. Walking our Christmas tree home may just be a new tradition in this house.


I like it in the daylight, but the magic really happens when it's dark and the lights are on.


Ooo...the glow!

I kept the decor really simple this year - silver, glass and a few wood slice ornaments. Last year I participated in a 12 days of handmade ornaments blog hop and many of those made it onto the tree this year, including two of my favorites: the reindeer antler wood slice ornament and the gold glitter and white felt Christmas tree. You can check out that whole series by starting with this post.

Just behind the tree, you might have spotted my DIY Advent calendar I made last year. I love it up against that brick wall!



Lastly, jumping over to the other side of the room, I stuck a few items on a shelving unit you might remember seeing in our second bathroom in the last house. There, we used it to hide a gross bidet...if you're curious about that story, it's over here, ha!


Silver and white (plus natural green stuff!) seems to be the theme this year. I love that it looks Christmasy without be too crazy. Simple decor is the name of the game here, folks. 

That about wraps it up! I hope you enjoyed this real life, one room Christmas tour. Maybe one day I'll actually show you the living room itself, ha!

  1. I think your one room Christmas tour is perfectly wonderful. I go all out with my decorating, storing small tabletop trees that stay decorated on closet shelves from year to year, (changing them our periodically.) But as lovely as some of the rooms look on IG, it's almost like it is too much. So seeing your lovely simplicity resonated with me! May the Lord bless you abundantly in your new home and always. Amen.
