Welcome to our home for the holidays.

This is my second time participating in the Holiday Housewalk, 
and I’m so excited to be back!
  


 Because of my new wall colors,  I decided to go with a more natural theme
with a little typography and a few deer thrown in.



The living room walls went from a butter cream color to a light taupe-ish grey.
This year I mixed things around but still used a lot of things I already had, I used neutrals and also my favorite turquoise blue.
I angled the sofa for a more interesting look and also added a faux fireplace.


 

The blue wall color in the dining room was replaced with a deep rich grey.
I used a tall skinny tree that’s placed in an urn that I painted grey, it’s easy to
decorate because it’s not too big and also doesn’t take up much room.
I used simple things to decorate it, including snow flakes made from kraft paper,
white hydrangeas flowers tucked between branches and of course pops of turquoise.






The stockings I made from burlap and grey chevron fabric,
I turned the chevron pattern on it’s side to give the cuff a geometric look.
I also added faux greenery and some of my handmade prints.



Glittered white deer and another book page deer.




For this corner of the room I wanted a big impact,
I made 11x14 individual letters that spelled JOY, placed them in frames I already had,
then connected them with jute ribbon by just stapling the ribbon to the back of the frames.




For the dining room, I made a simple burlap runner for the table.



For the buffet, I used magnolia leaves and pinecones
from the yard and also some glass ornaments for a little color.
I love the contrast of the natural greens and browns mixed with the turquoise.









More hand made deer prints, I created the plaid using 
a free online program called tartan maker.



I love my vintage brass deer bookends, too cute!



This is RUDY the reindeer, I made his body out of scrap wood,
mounted him on vintage wood shelves which
 I joined together and used branches for his antlers.



The sign holder is just a large wine jug with a vintage
funnel turned upside down and a little wire to hold the paper sign.




 
Our home was the last stop of the tour,
so if you missed any of homes or just want to start at the beginning

HAPPY HOLIDAYS

  17. I came to the housewalk after it was finished, and yours was the first one I clicked on because it looked like my kind of style. Yep! We used similar colors in our Christmas décor; natural tones with aqua. (Yours a million times better of course;)
