I had so much fun decorating again this year. Our favorite part is the multi color Christmas tree in the living room. It is small but mightly and definitely a crowd favorite. I so wish I could show you what our house looks like at night because that’s when it becomes truly special to me.
multi color Christmas tree in the living room
My daughter was really into the colorful details of our mostly neutral backdrop. Keeping your home fairly neutral in the background makes decorating with colorful accessories a lot easier.

I made all the gold stars and some of the painted Christmas balls. I prefer to not overload our real Christmas tree since I love the natural beauty of it. That’s why I usually keep it on the simpler side. And if you can’t tell by now, I have an obsession with stars.
Monkey loves to snuggle on her favorite spot. It’s unbelievable that she was a homeless cat last year freezing around this time of the year on our front porch in her igloo, isn’t it? She even goes as far as to snuggle in bed with the other three cats which melts my heart. I’m so glad they somewhat get along. She is able to still come and go as she pleases thanks to her amazing electronic cat door and leaves me the occasional disgusting present, yuck!
turquoise and white Fireplace Area:
I changed it up a bit this year by not using a garland and placing Norfolk pines in vases instead.
Christmas icicle dining room chandelier
Last year I added all kinds of different Christmas balls to the chandelier (click HERE to see) and to change it up a little this year, I only used clear ornaments and added some garland to the top of the chandelier. I really love the festive look.
The new curtains I painted are the perfect elegant backdrop to all the natural greens this year. It’s a completely different feel to the rest of the house which I really like.
I used the Rosenthal plates we received for our wedding and added my great-grandmother’s antique flatware to the table.
Ornaments are hanging in the window again with my new painted curtains (Click HERE to read about them).
The Ikea Christmas tree canvas is making its third appearance in our dining room because I love it so much but this year I added my vinyl stickers and the stars that were on our real tree last year.
You can buy an almost identical German Christmas pyramid HERE.

I will be posting a couple of tutorials about the DIY’s that I made for this tour, so make sure to come back for a visit.
I’m wishing all of you a very Merry Christmas and a beautiful holiday season.
