If this is your first time here I want to welcome you and invite you in for a hot cup of coffee with a big splash of vanilla creamer or a glass of my favorite red wine (depending on what time it is, but hey, it's 5 o'clock somewhere so maybe we should just have wine??). Anyway, a quick intro... I'm Kate, an interior decorator, blogger, DIYer and stay-home mom once my boys get home from school. I hope you'll enjoy the final part of my tour and if you missed the other tours, you can see Part 1 Farmhouse Chic Christmas, and Part 2, Chic Christmas Decor.
I hope that you'll come back and see me again. I host a weekly link up party called Flaunt it Friday and I would love to have you join me. This week we'll be linking up on... you guessed it, Friday. ;)
Now... on to the tour!
My office is the most bold and colorful room in my home and I like to keep my Christmas decor colorful as well. Since I'm the only girl I love to have a space where I can bust out a bunch of pink and girly looking stuff without thinking twice about it. I didn't do too much but what I did I really love.
My new deer pillow is my favorite addition this year. It is a pillow covered with beaded, rainbow colored deers. If you would've told me 5 years ago that in the future my favorite pillow would have rainbow colored beaded deers all over it I would have laughed in your face. But, somehow it's the truth. As trendy as it is, I love it.
Look how fabulous it is! And, it goes awesome with my watercolor pillow and all my other colorful stuff. #winning
Anywaaaay, I am loving flocked trees this year but I haven't been able to pull the trigger on buying a big faux flocked tree... such a big commitment to flock! But, this little one on my desk will do. It's so cute it doesn't even need ornaments.
I added some vintage ornaments in my favorite colors too. It's a nice contrast to my little white tree. In case you are wondering my son made the big circle art piece on the bulletin board behind my tree in pre-school. I loved the colors and he is so proud to have it displayed on in my office.
I added a little tree and vintage ornament on my side table for a little more Christmas cheer.
This black wall in my office is painted in chalkboard paint. Confession: I have yet to draw on it! I need to season it with chalk but have been putting it off as it looks so nice with the clean black paint on it. I faked it tonight with some chalk font and photoshop magic. Although, it's not very magical because you can pretty much tell it is photoshopped. Oh well, whatever. At least it's not blank, right?! I have not yet shared my office tour on my blog but look for it in the near future with real chalk writing on the chalkboard wall and everything. :)
Now, let's head to my entryway. It would've made more sense to do the entry first probably but I was too excited about that crazy rainbow deer pillow and had to show you all right away. It was worth it.
So, on to my entryway...
I have this skinny little wall behind my front door that holds this art piece. I got it for 80% off at Hob Lob a few years back. It set in my basement for a while as it used to have some metal iron gate looking thing on it that I didn't like. I finally decided to try and remove it, I unscrewed it and took it off, it left 2 holes in it but I wasn't worried about them. I added my boxwood wreath and a Merry Christmas ribbon and WAA-LA! It's ready for Christmas. I change out the wreath depending on what time of the year it is. The boxwood could stay up all year but I like to mix it up around here.
I love glass domes! They make everything a little bit fancier and can make something small stand out a little bit more. I love this little church ornament with it's tiny bottlebrush trees and glitter filled roof. This would get lost on my 9 foot tree but sitting here under a dome on my table it will surely be noticed.
I love the vintage charm of bottlebrush trees. I don't have much of a collection but am hoping to pick up some colorful ones for my office after Christmas when they go on sale. Speaking of after Christmas sales...
If you follow me on Instagram you may have seen this picture. I mentioned that a gold bust of Santa had never really been on my must-have Christmas decor list. But, I came across this guy 90% off after Christmas one year and couldn't pass him up. Now, I sorta love him.
This is my Christmas vignette directly across from my front door. I hope it looks welcoming and full of Christmas cheer.
My dining room is sort of in transition right now so I don't have too many shots of it. I love this Joy pillow I got a few years back. Joy on one side of the table...
Peace on the other side.
My mom gave me this antique frame, it used to hold a mirror, now it frames my deer. She's all dressed up for Christmas.
This little chair is going to be in my kitchen after Mr. Chic finishes making me a farmhouse table (YAY!) For now it sits under my deer on a little wall that divides the formal living and dining rooms.
Can you believe I bought this "Merry & Bright" pillow way before I was asked to join the Merry & Bright Holiday Home Tour?! What a coincidence! :)
Now it's time to check out the other ladies fantastic tours.
