Christmas Decor 2018

hey, guys!

Long time no post.

I don't know what came over me, but I felt inspired to post a "tour of homes" for my Christmas holiday decor this year. I haven't posted many photos of my little fixer upper here in Atlanta (I still need to write about all of the renovations that have happened), but this year my decor feels especially cozy, so I figured I might as well. I won't lie - it took me a while to dust off my photo skills (mainly having to download new software for the program that I transfer photos from, find cords, edit, etc) because I never use my nice camera anymore. It's crazy how easy it is to use our iPhones to capture everything now, and even edit them in a split second. Honestly, I prefer it, and I'm not really sure dragging out my Canon really made that much of a difference, but here we go.


This is the view peering in from my dining room. I did real garland (from Lowe's - everyone keeps asking!) around the arch and a mistletoe ball hangs from the top of the arch. I tied a black and white ribbon around the base of the ball.


 The tree! She's colorful. I can't help it. I always think maybe I'll do a more simple, neutral tree, but I never do. I am a color lover.





My mantel. The stockings and stocking holders are from west elm, and I just did a very simple (obviously faux - I got tired of hanging real garland at this point, haha. I generally do real here.)

I LOVE my vintage (mixed with new) houses and bottle trees. I have been collecting vintage Christmas decor for years. I tied the black and white plaid ribbon on the ends here, too. 


I may add gold balls to the garland, we'll see.



These mini vintage reindeer are one of my favorite possessions I've ever owned! You may remember them from my studio windows about 5 years ago? They're so cute.





View from the living room. I am now kicking myself for not clearing off my coat rack a little more for the photo, but oh well. 





View from living room into the dining area. I filled my dough bowl with ornaments (I have SO many vintage glass ornaments) and then did 2 simple modern black taper candles on either end.






bar/record area. Excuse the cords - a necessary evil here!

The kitchen. The only Christmas decor here is the Santa (and ho ho ho board - I'm really bad at keeping that thing up to date, and kind of lazy with it, haha) and the garland over the kitchen sink. I did get out my old red rug and lay it out for the winter since it covers more ground, and I am really loving it!


I added lights onto the garland this year, and bows on either end. It's so cheery!





 View from dining area to the back door (the area to the right is my office). 

Bedroom! I can't remember if I blogged about it, but I painted that design on the headboard wall in the bedroom. I added a little white tree, a "merry christmas" garland onto the window, and some glittery tinsel garland to the antlers of my white elk. This part may be too cheesy - I haven't decided. haha. Knowing myself, I probably will leave it.





he's festive.


 This rose gold metal garland is from Target a few years ago.


This little white tree is SO OLD. I probably have had it about ten years, for real. Holding on for dear life, but still cute as can be.







and hey look, it's me (and my dirty mirror)! haha. Very cool face I am making. This is the hallway, which I also hand painted.



I hope you enjoyed the "tour"... merry christmas everyone!
