Our Holiday Home Tour // 2014

Bubbly Design Co. Holiday Home Tour 2014

Are you guys sick of talking about Christmas yet? I sure hope not, because we only have 2 more posting days left before the big day and I still have a few fun things to share!

In case you missed it, I’ve already shared an inexpensive DIY faux evergreen wreath that can last you well into winter, our Christmas cards plus a few ways to personalize your own, DIY glitter ornaments { make a set for less than $5! }, and alternative decorating options for those of us without mantles.

So, while I’ve shared bits and pieces of our holiday decorating, it’s time to finally invite you inside. Feel free to stay awhile, I’ve got a handful of photos and some easy decorating tips — it’s never too late for a little sprucing up, am I right?

Visitors are welcomed to our humble abode with this glitzy, wintery wreath. I’m still obsessed!

Just inside our front door is our dining room and open floor plan kitchen, which is the primary place I like to really get festive in our home.

We’re constantly fighting paper and mail overload, so I knew I wanted to find a creative way to display Christmas cards we received throughout the month. I think this ribbon & mini clothespin solution is perfect! The cards are on display, but not in the way. Plus, the gold ribbon and disco ball ornaments really make our china cabinet feel festive.

I took the extra step of adding some gold accents to the inside of our china cabinet. They are a simple, but impactful finishing touch for this area.

On the dining room table, I really wanted to bring in the hottest trend of the season – plaid! I picked up a scarf at Forever 21 ages ago and folded it to serve as a table runner.

The burlap deer is hands-down my favorite accent I splurged on this year { from Target }. Even if you don’t want to splurge, simpler things like bells, ornaments, and ribbon can easily be added to your existing decor and make your house feel holiday-ready.

Because I have so many gold decor items, I decided to carry the gold accents throughout the first floor. Candles and DIY poppers repurposed from Thanksgiving moved from the featured spot on the table to a smaller shelf.

Gold and red accents for Christmas

The “Holly Jolly” print I popped into the wood frame is a free printable you can find here.

To continue the pops of red and plaid throughout the first floor, I used ornaments, stickers, and a great plaid paper { found at Paper Source } in our back entryway. The ornaments inside a cloche were 100% inspired by Carrie of Dream Green DIY, and I just love the look!

Tip: Trim any paper you like to the size of a clear tray and pop it into the bottom for a simple, seasonal update!

I found the “Merry Christmas” sticker in my scrapbooking supplies and simply attached it to a 5×7 piece of kraft paper. Ta da! Free holiday art!

Overall, our decor ended up being a mix between traditional and the Krafty Plaid theme I shared at the beginning of the season. But, did you think I forgot about the others? Of course not!

Peach & Gray non-traditional holiday tree

In my office, I created a tree based around the Moody Peach theme and I love how it turned out. The white tree was the perfect backdrop for peach, and after weeks of hunting, I found vintage ornaments, a bead garland, and a few other accents to pull this off.

Peach is a fun, non-traditional holiday color and works well with a white treeOur basement is incredibly difficult to photograph, so you’ll just have to trust me that I attempted a silvery version of Whites & Wood in our downstairs living room.

It would be so hard to pick a favorite among the three themes I executed. I’m so happy to have pops of read upstairs, a more subdued holiday theme downstairs with our Christmas tree, and something totally unique and inspirational in my office. I guess you could say I let each space dictate the decor that would work best there.

I’d love to know, how did you decorate and what was your favorite part of decking your halls?
