I love this time of year! Decorating our home is always so much fun. I think I have decorating ADD because I can never decide what my “style” is. This year I had this vision of a gold and white Christmas. I sewed our dropcloth slipcover so I could have this neutral holiday decor. But I also love BRIGHT holiday too. So in kitchen/family room area of our home I went with a gold and white theme, and then in the entryway and living room I went for BRIGHT and colorful.
Here’s our holiday home!
Welcome to our home. Here’s the front porch. I found some gold lights from Ikea and strung them across the highest window on the porch. I found the wreath from Lowes and I added some bows to it. I added some festive pillows to the Crib Bench that I made a few years ago.
In the entry way, I added a evergreen garland up the stairs and embellished it with red and white paper fans.
I also hung a little Joy to the World banner.
In the living room, I went for a BRIGHT theme. I found a resin deer head at zGallerie and I mounted it on a little DIY pallet. Then I added my Pom Pom Trees and a few of the Felt Trees I made a few years ago. The colorful bowl of ornaments on the coffee table bring in all of the fun happy colors.
I went with a flocked tree this year. I think the white flocked tree brings out the gold accents. I also made a crate for the base of the tree. I have the full DIY and I will share it in another post, but I spray painted the crate gold and I love the way it looks with my flocked tree.
I created a gold and white mantel. I’m a little obsessed with making cone trees this year.
I made a whole bunch of them with metallic linen as well as some gold lame and gold sequin fabric. The wreath is from Lowes. And I hung it on a gold framed mirror that I had in our bedroom. I’m so proud of myself for making the linen stockings. I had been wanting to make some stockings for a few years and it always seemed so intimidating to me. I love the gold monogrammed letters too that I ironed on using heat transfer material.
I also spray painted our Advent/Card Display Ladder from turquoise to gold. I also made a new holiday sign — Joyeux Noel.
I made metallic pillow covers for our dropcloth slipcovered sofa and created some Merry & Bright Chalkboard pillow covers.
And I printed the printables off and framed them in our banquette area too!
In the kitchen I made some pretty pillow covers out of matching metallic linen and put them on our banquette. I created a pretty centerpiece with some gold metallic candle holders from Target. I love the way they glow at night.
I updated our open shelves with some Christmas plates and figurines and I made a little wreath garland with Dollar Store wreaths and hung it over the window.
And in our bedroom I added a little festive wreath pillow to bring the feeling of Christmas up to that room too.
