Home for the Holidays

Monday, December 7, 2015



In case you missed it, last week we were thrilled to share our home tour, all decorated for Christmas, on Southern Newlywed on the Southern Weddings blog. We were so honored to be featured, and we had a great time working with Dyan Kethley to shoot the piece.

I'm also linking up with Andrea for Show and Tell Tuesdays!




Our Dining Room





Somehow this year, the color theme of the dining room became blue and green, just because of our curtains. This room has probably changed the most since we've lived here, and I think it's a great representation of our style. The little black and white gallery wall is one of my favorite things in our home. I do wonder what will happen with our chairs once #SweetBabyStrader starts living life at the table but we'll cross that bridge when we come to it, haha!

Our Kitchen




I love our little coffee bar area so much, even though I don't drink coffee! I recently decided to make the shelves 100% decorative, and they've been so fun to work on since then! I'm hoping to add little seasonal touches for each time of year!





Our Bedroom

Our Living Room 







This back wall had been blank for a few months while I tried to find the perfect piece, and inspiration struck when it most often does.. while watching a Fixer Upper marathon, haha! Joanna used this piece in a dining room and on a hunch I thought it looked like it was from Pier One, and it was! Pier One can kinda be pricey but we've loved this piece and it's here for the long haul!


My early Christmas gift from my dad this year was new curtains for our living room. I love the more neutral look.


Our Sitting Room/Office 




I bought these little moccs for our gender reveal party.. if #SweetBabyStrader is a boy, they'll be sent on to a loved one with a baby girl! 








Thanks so much for checking out our home tour, in this photo heavy post! Usually I have lots of extra details to share, but Dyan's beautiful photos seemed to do the talking in this post! :) If you have any specific questions or need sources, leave a comment below! :)

  1. Your home is lovely and looks comfortable! I love that part. Beautiful with an easy welcoming feel, in that it's not overly perfect/stuffy, anyone would feel comfortable coming in. Hospitality for the win!
