It’s that time of year again, Holiday Home Tour time!! This year, I’ve joined some talented friends to bring you lots of holiday inspo through #ourhomesfortheholidays blog hop! We are on day 3 of the tour, (full line up below) if you're visiting from my disclosures).Welcome! I hope you enjoy my simple and neutral holiday home. I beg you to bear with me, as my camera lens is on the fritz, I'm really hoping Santa answers my wish with some new camera gear this Christmas (fingers crossed!)

I continued the black and white theme on the Christmas tree. Pine cones, which I gathered on a nature walk, completed the wood element in the theme.
The sofa was adorned with a cozy fringed throw, and some winters throw pillows. The white plaid pillows were made from $6 Walmart blanket scarf- I just can’t get enough of that plaid!! I added some DIY suede tassels to the corners of the pillows for some interest.
I had this idea, that I could take this cute little basket and fill it with a soft pillow and cover it with black fabric to create a cat bed to blend with my decor-but the kitten isn't having it!
She prefers the comfy sofa!
Because we are without a fireplace, our Ikea Hemnes shoe cabinet was fitted with a diy “mantel” using a similar technique to my fireplace makeover for my best friend, years ago.
To create this vignette, I layered some wall art and the framed lyrics to my favorite Christmas song “Oh holy night,” to be displayed on the mantel.
Simple and FREE--sensing a theme here? lol.
Our entry got a little blinged out with these gold foil Christmas trees, graciously provided by Paper Riot Co. they are sold at select Target stores and online. These wall decals are such a great way to make a big impact with minimal work-all you need is a little creativity!
In the vein of keeping things simple and inexpensive- I added a paper chain “garland” over the windows for a modern and festive feel. I was able to enlist the help of my kids for this.
I kept things super simple, with a buffalo check runner, some pine branches in sweater wrapped vases and a cozy faux fur throw for the bench seating.
Clearly, our new fur baby Gracie, finds herself quite comfortable in this spot.
I like to keep my counters pretty bare, but for a little Christmas glow, I plugged in my vintage illuminated Christmas tree (spray painted white) and placed it next to this sweet little DIY “snow globe.”
This cute little Dollar Tree vase, placed on top of a mini cake stand, filled with white Pom-poms and the $1 spot Christmas trees tags, really rounds off this vignette.
Hanging a festive banner in my kitchen window has kind of been my way to celebrate festivities of all the seasons lately-it’s cheerful and basically everyone’s first view from our bedrooms in the mornings-so it’s a great way to bring on the holiday cheer.
Well Friends this concludes my tour! I hope to share a little of the basement family room and some bedroom spaces next week so be sure to check back. Also if you are interested in a tutorial for any of the little DIY projects mentioned in this post, let me know and I'd be glad to share.
