I am linking this post up to Jennifer Rizzo’s Holiday Housewalk 2017 Linky Party. Be sure to head over to her page to see all the amazing Christmas inspiration.

Well, hello there and HAPPY HOLIDAYS! Hasn’t this home tour been so fun? 

If you’ve just come from Follow The Yellow Brick Home I bet your were wow’d by Amber’s gorgeous music room. Wouldn’t you just love to visit her home and hear the music there, especially for the holidays. I am the last one on the tour and I know it’s not “last the best of all the game” because I have been blown away by all the holiday inspiration and I don’t think I can measure up.


If your just starting here with my blog Welcome! This is “It’s a Wonderful Home Hop”. Huge kudos go out to Olivia of Reinvented Collection. She’s the amazing gal who put this blog hop together for us and I can’t imagine the time and effort she put into this for all of us to enjoy. I highly recommend that you start at the top of the list below, relax, grab some hot chocolate and soak in all the beautiful sites created by the other 18 bloggers. But first, here’s a look at my home.

My Christmas Home Tour

Welcome to our southern country home.

Creating a comfortable and inviting home is very important to me. It’s our refuge and safe spot. I have a large family and I want it to be a place where both young and not so young would want to hang out. I would never want to have a house that anyone would be afraid to live and play in. So, that’s basically how I decorate; with my family, comfort, and enjoyment in mind.

Let’s start with our kitchen.

Country Kitchen

For many years my dream home had a nice large kitchen attached to a large enough space for my family. When we found this home it was exactly what I had pictured.

Here’s our dining area ready for a casual Christmas meal.

Dining Room

To me there’s nothing that says cozy, old fashioned Christmas more that plaid and buffalo check which I have plenty of.

Our living area is made of three couches. I find it much more comfortable and easy for conversation than a sectional.

To me this is the perfect setup for lots of family times together; one great big room.

Red accessories

For some reason I’m not totally sure of I’ve always had some red in my regular decor, but it makes it easy to add Christmas decorations to it.

Well, that just about covers it. Be sure to come back. I’m working on my front porch and the master bedroom for Christmas. Now, I need some ideas for this space. Santa made it in there, but that’s all. Any suggestions?

Here’s wishing you and yours an amazing Christmas holiday. Be sure to check out all the other homes below, too.
