My Holiday Home Tour
Today I’m excited to let you peak into my home, my living / dining area to be exact, all decorated for this happy, cozy and wonderful time of the year! Christmas is my favourite holiday, maybe yours as well! I enjoy every little bit of it, the decorations of course, family time, the songs, the cold ( just up to Christmas though!), the cozyness…you name it! I’m so happy you are here, come in and make yourself at home!
My husband and I live in a small town in the very South of Spain in Europe. We are renting a beautiful little home here with our two daughters and two bunnies. Winters here in the South are by far not as cold as they are back in Canada, where we lived before. It does get chilly here, a bit rainy at times, but it is mostly sunny!
Our living room is our family room as well. This is our hang~out, our cozy spot, where we all spend time together.
Then, on the left side of the cabinet is one of my favourite decorations. Our Christmas card wall. I collected those cards over the years from friends who live all over the world and I love looking at them and remembering them and the good times we had together!
Moving on to our fireplace. We don’t use it as one, only for lights and candles! I drew on the chalkboard and filled the lanterns with my painted chestnuts. You can also see one of my three easy holiday garlands.
This is a little platter with some stars made out of tree bark, some acorn tops, anise stars and white cornstarch stars I made a couple of years ago with my girls.
Our sofa is so cozy and comfy with many pillows and blankets to cuddle. I love using different kinds of fabrics and tones, all holiday style. Our sofa is the place to be in our house!
I like to keep the coffee table clear for, well, …. coffee. We also use it to play board games all together and it is such a beautiful piece to look at that I didn’t want to put anything on it.
The glass ornaments used to be my mom’s, now I’m treasuring them and remembering her by having them up!
I kept it simple on my table, I used wooden sticks, pinecones and my little pine vases as a centre piece.
A few years back I bought this lovely reindeer. It was tossed aside to the clearance section because of the crack in the wood. I fell in love with it at first sight and took it home. Ever since, during the holiday season, it gets a special spot in the room!
Right next to it is my rosemary wreath with little pine trees and a candle in the middle.
Here’s the advent calendar I made for my daughters. They love opening a little pouch each day, to find a surprise!
I’ve always had a crush on Scandinavian decor and design, like this nordic tree I painted with chalk.
And now…last but most important! Our Christmas tree! We bought a real one, as our artificial one is just to big and immense for the space we have here. Our tree is small, not the typical kind I would say, but cute and fits right in here. My daughters decorated it all by themselves and I think it turned out beautifully…
