Country Living Christmas Home Tour

Join us for our Country Living Christmas Home Tour! We’re sharing our rustic little house in the suburbs all dressed up for Christmas!

Hello sweet Friends. We are so ECSTATIC that you’re here today! Earlier this week, we shared our first Christmas home tour of 2015 and mentioned that we’d be back today with our second Christmas home tour hosted by none other than Country Living and the ever-sweet Ashley of Cherished Bliss.

Country Living Home Made Lovely Christmas Home Tour

Please come in.

The Entryway

We recently freshened up our front entry bench by painting it in a classic black (Coal Black by Fusion Mineral Paints) and adding a new light fixture. After almost three years of searching and pondering which light to buy, we found this one at Home Depot while we were there looking for something completely unrelated to lighting. Go figure!

Honestly the entryway is normally FULL of shoes and coats. It stayed like this for quite literally five minutes before it was a mess again. #ILoveMyFamily

I would really love to replace the brown/beige tiles with really large gray (maybe slate?) tiles. But don’t tell Dean that just yet – he’s not a big fan of tiling floors!

The Master Bedroom

Now, we’re going to skip over the rest of the main floor for a moment and go straight up to our master bedroom. (You’ll see why in a sec.)

This room usually gets a bit more of a Christmas touch, but I was working with what we had and very little time. Thankfully it doesn’t take too much to add a little festivity to a space. Just a sign, some antlers, mini trees or a pillow will do it.

Also we recently moved our treadmill up there, so the rest of the room is rather a mess with piles of things all over. Which is okay, because we’re not hosting Christmas this year, so no one else has to sleep in there but us. (Our parents take over our room when they visit since we don’t have a guest room.)

Don’t mind the yellow knobs. We typically have yellow as an accent color in here, with pillows and flowers, etc. I am thinking of changing them out for maybe crystal knobs in the new year. What do you think?

    wow, can I come to your house for Christmas next year? Seriously though you have a beautiful home and obviously go to a lot of effort at Christmas.

    • Shannon Acheson says

      What would you like to know? It’s a wood door that was at the house when we moved in. I painted the interior side with an aqua paint by Van Gogh and the exterior was a medium grey that our friends actually gave us. The decal was from etsy, but can now also be found on amazon. 🙂 Anything else?

My aha moment!

I found my style and was able to bring our small space together for our family of 8! My aha moment was when you talked about undertones! That was the moment when I could bring everything together.

Falling in love with our home again

My ah-ha moment was when I realized I was going about things all the wrong way. I loved the house but it didn't feel like home. BUT now because of your course...I am falling in love with our home all over again.

Thank you for your direction and inspiration!

You have been very helpful in just identifying my style and what I like! Thank you for your direction and inspiration!

Decorating is not as complicated as it once seemed!

I love your easy process to determine my style. I've also learned that my style has changed over the years and seasons of my life and that decorating properly/successfully is NOT as complicated as it once seemed!!!

Lightbulb moment!

Your explanation of paint colors was the light bulb moment for me! I am enjoying your teaching.  Thanks!

Pat J.

Filled me with the confidence I need

Oh Shannon, thank you, thank you thank you!!  I wish I could download you and take you with me, but your Decor Staples Checklist has definitely given me the guidance and filled me with the confidence I need!

Zee V.

Love this idea!

Orbs are such a great decor item to add to a space. Staining the hoops really gives them a vintage feel. Thanks for the inspiration.


I love your instructions!

LMAO!! I love your How Not to Paint Cabinet instructions! It made me laugh with good humor! Kudos for sharing your lessons learned!!

Done with Haphazard Decor!

I'm so done with Haphazard Decor! (Yes, I think I just made that "style" up). Thank you for your style quiz!


So Accurate!

I thought the quiz was so accurate, I want my friends to do it. I feel I like such a mix of things and the quiz described them all so well!

A trusted friend

Before I felt overwhelmed by my clutter. Now, I feel like I have a trusted friend alongside me to pull me out of my paralysis with a fresh mindset!
