Holiday in the Heights {Christmas Home Tour}

Related Posts Plugin for WordPress, Blogger...
After weeks of doing a little bit here and a little bit there, our house is about as decorated for Christmas as it's going to get!  I branched out from my less-is-more holiday decoration approach a bit, and came up with some new Christmas decorating ideas this year.

I'm excited to share a tour of our holiday-decorated house with you!  Warning: this post is basically one giant photo bomb.  Enjoy!



Let's start in the family room, shall we?  It is the most decked-out-for-Christmas room in the house, by far. This year, I added a small Christmas tree in here, to showcase the ornaments that Mr. M. and I buy on trips and other special times together.




 We don't have a mantle, so the bulk of our holiday decorating takes place on the shelves surrounding our TV, which is also where we hang our stockings.



I was especially excited about the garland that I created using some gold star ornaments!





















I love to have an excuse to break out my red beaded place mats in the dining room!  I love the combination of red and chartreuse with the black and white!




I showed you our Christmas chalkboard last week.  Its' the only holiday decor in our kitchen at this point, but I feel a holiday tablescape coming on, which would bring more of a festive vibe to our kitchen table. I'll be sure to show it to you if it happens!


Our main tree is in the living room, in front of the windows that face the street.  I love that I can see the tree as I drive down the street towards our house!  









I wanted to DIY a tree collar, but I just couldn't find the time this year.  So I felt so lucky to find this fab faux fur tree skirt at Marshall's!  I think it's so pretty with our purple, turquoise and silver tree.

And finally, here are some shots of the exterior. I have to give a shout out to Mr. M. for the outside lights, he did all the work!  



And that's it!  Like I have shared before, I don't go too crazy with my holiday decorating!  With all of the other things going on this month, I'm pleased with what I found the time to do!  

How about you?  Are you done with your holiday decorating yet?  Do you go wild, or keep it simple?
