Welcome to the 2017 Holiday Housewalk Day 1! I am so excited to have you here. I can’t believe it is in it’s 7th year!!
I’ll kick off the our with my home, and then you can visit everyone else who has decked their homes for the holiday! So turn up Bing Crosby, and let’s start our tour!
Welcome to my home!
This year I went with a simpler approach to my decorating. We kept our living room and main tree very simple, and loaded up the kids tree downstairs with the more fun ornaments. For us, with the retail store, the holiday is a little different this year, but we are still finding time to bake our favorite chewy ginger cookies, and spend time doing fun holiday things!
The wreath over our mantel is an old wine barrel ring. I just fell in love with how cool it was.
You can see more of our living room decor here.
In the kitchen, and dining area, I added fresh touches to the decor, and some fun plaid.

In the dining area, we use our table 24/7, so I picked a tablescape we could easily remove so we could eat at the table.
A large butcher block cutting board, filled with fruits we can eat and some eucalyptus was perfect to lift on and off.
In our bedroom, I added more fresh, natural touches. If you read our bedroom post, you’ll see why I loved the boxwood but it didn’t last very long.
The wreath over the bed is a faux olive leaf, so no problem with that one!
I added some small holiday touches to our main bathroom too.
A preserved boxwood wreath and some fresh flowers make it perfect for guests.
Thank you so much for visiting me at my home. The next house is Yvonne’s beautiful home!
