Hello! Today is last of my Christmas Home Tours! So I thought I would combine all of them and do like a walking tour for you. I also included a 3 minute video of our Christmas Home Tour! So you can see the complete layout of our 1200 square foot cape in Connecticut. I always wonder how homes I see flow together, hopefully you do too and you enjoy this type of tour today. I am also sharing my favorite thing I did with my Christmas Decor this year and YOUR favorite thing. I am basing your favorite thing from the comments I get, the photo’s I see of you duplicating what I did or the links that you clicked on! I hope you enjoy it.
First stop is our front porch! My Favorite Thing I did this year was add THIS faux garland and THESE wreaths. I have always used real garland and this year I decided to go with faux because I do put it up mid November, so I thought that the faux might less messy and look better longer. Also the wreaths are pre-lit, love coming up to our glowing home! Your Favorite Thing– THIS basket hanging our our front door. So many of you have done this too and such a great item to use throughout the year! (See more of the exterior of our home HERE).
When you walk into our home our stairs are the first thing and our front room to the left. My Favorite Thing– The Electric Fireplace (that might always be my favorite thing, not just because it is new). And my other Favorite Thing are THESE new stockings I mixed in with our cream stockings. Love the color. Your Favorite Thing was my garland hanging on the fireplace. I have gotten so many messages on that. Sadly I can’t find it, but I am attempting a DIY of it….so stay tuned. So the next Favorite Thing from you are the Twinkle Lights (I wrote an entire blog post on them HERE).
I haven’t shown the piano wall yet. I was considering painting the piano, it needs a new paint job….but couldn’t decide on a color, so I guess we could just touch it up. My Favorite Thing over here is THIS Paint By Numbers art (I have a coupon code nestingwithgrace for 20% off). Your Favorite Thing was again the Twinkle Lights! (And I am really obsessed with THIS new plant head bust.)
If you keep walking we have a small hallway, to the left is our kitchen, straight ahead the bathroom and to the right is our master and Finn’s room! The Magic Light Trick at the end of the hall is everyones Favorite Thing….but all year!
In our bathroom I just hung a fresh wreath on the window. Simple addition, but it makes me smile!
The heart of the home, our little kitchen. My Favorite Thing and Your Favorite Thing is the garland over our window with the twinkle lights. This year I used THESE preserved boxwood garlands. Nothing like adding a little light to the area that we spend a lot of time. Another Favorite Thing from You is how I hung THIS Mini Boxwood Wreath on our subway tile, just used a little hit glue right on the subway tile! (See more of our kitchen HERE).
My favorite room in the house, our moody master bedroom. My Favorite Thing is THIS new faux fur pillow, it is super soft and I like how it completely changes the look of the bedroom with just a different pillow. Your Favorite Thing is THIS chunky knit throw. It gets a lot of comments (it is pricey so it should get all the comments 😂).
My little sweet boys’ bedroom, right across from ours. My Favorite Thing is that baby boy. Your Favorite Thing was that tree, but I got it at Home Goods last year. (See more of Finn’s room and our master bedroom HERE).
Now up the stairs to our second floor. I added a couple pieces of fresh greens to the top of our art for a festive touch.
And the bathroom upstairs got a fresh wreath too! You can spray fresh garland with THIS Wilt Pruf to help preserve it. Or even better soak it in water for 24 hours before hanging it!
Just two bedrooms upstairs. This is our family room that is also our guest room. My Favorite Thing was I added some fresh greens to our faux Christmas Tree to give it some life! And THESE wood beads are a fav! Your Favorite Thing was the fact that I put my tree in THIS basket. This tree has a long trunk so it stands up in the basest with the base. Many of you use your outdoor umbrella stand to keep your tree up! (See more of our family room and the girls room HERE).
The girls shared bedroom is extra sweet with THIS pink tinsel tree, that is My Favorite Thing and one of Your Favorite Things. And another one of both of Our Favorite Things THIS Sister, Sister Painting. (coupon code nestingwithgrace 20% off).
Check out a 3 minute video tour of our home at Christmas! But WARNING…. I am not a videographer. I did take one video with a horizontal wide angle and it just doesn’t work in our small home (I can’t get back far enough to get a wide view!) So you get a vertical video. And I took it with my phone, my camera was a little to shaky. Stuck with my favorite motto “Done is better than perfect.” I could have waited to hire someone to do it or waited until I got better and in that case you would not get a video this year! Hopefully you enjoy it and take it for my intention of sharing more of me with you! (PS- you can shop our home HERE)
PS- Just fixed it to have the girls bedroom! (I deleted the original one).
Head over to Southern Hospitality next to see her beautiful touches for Christmas!
