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.

      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?
