Welcome to my 2016 Holiday Home Tour! I want to thank Marty from A Stroll Thru Life for organizing this event. Once again. And for inviting me to participate. Once again.
If you’re here from Cuckoo 4 Design, welcome! Don’t you just love Julia’s style? I had the pleasure of meeting her a few years ago and she is just as lovely and glamorous in person as she is on the blog!
Now on to the holiday home tour with neutral Christmas decor …
There was a red accent wall, and a red couch and sage green dining room walls and jeweled-toned area rugs and pillows filled with greens and reds and purples. And it felt like all year long my home was just waiting, waiting, waiting for Christmas to arrive. Through Spring, Summer and Fall, with arms folded and toes tapping, it waited (sometimes patiently, sometimes not) for it’s time to shine.
And sliding in decorations was easy. Natural. It all went. Green tree. Check.
Red ribbons & bows. Check.
Old fashioned Santas sitting on the fantel mantel. Check.
And then ….
And I’ll admit it … I’ve been struggling every Christmas ever since.
Because the addition of red throws me into a Fourth of July house. A patriotic house. Not that there’s anything wrong with that. But …
When it comes to Christmas, I want comfy. And cozy. And warm. Surrounded by twinkle lights.
