Home for the Holidays Blog Tour - Maison Style

Good morning friends! I am so happy to be part of another Holiday Home Tour! If you're a regular reader, you know that this is my second tour of the season (my first tour can be seen here). And if you are coming here from my talented friend Kathleen at Lindsay Hill Interiors, thank you! I'm so glad you're here!

This time fifteen bloggers (yes, 15!) have collaborated to bring you a Home for the Holidays blog tour where we have each decorated our homes for the holidays in our own personal style. From mod, to chic, to transitional, to French country, to farmhouse - there is a style here for everyone! So come on in, take a look around, and get inspired. Also, we have some super exciting news to share! King of Christmas, who is one of our sponsors for this tour, has kindly agreed to giveaway a Christmas tree (details about that at the end of post)!!

I know there are a ton of tours this time of year, and I am so thankful that you've decided to stop by ours...... Welcome!


The boxwood wreaths are from Target and the fresh garland and poinsettia are from Home Depot. Other boxwood wreath options available here, here, here, and here.

On my first tour, I shared with you how I've been wanting to switch to a more neutral and natural Christmas, which for me meant getting rid of the red. I have used greens, whites, creams, and gold and silver as my colors of the season. I love that they convey Christmas without being over the top.





I'm a huge fan of bottlebrush trees; both vintage and new. I've collected them for a few years now and I usually add a couple new ones each year. This year I couldn't find any vintage ones (so far!) but I did get a few new ones. The ones I purchased at World Market are here, and there are also options here, and here.






I adore mercury glass ornaments and use them in my holiday decor quite a lot. I've found some sources for mercury glass ornaments hereherehere, hereherehere, and here. I love the shimmer they give! 



In the dining room I again used the mercury glass ornaments, just laid on the table with simple greens I clipped from my yard.






My collection of vintage ironstone mixed with new white dishes is always in the dining room china cabinet, but this season I added some green vases to celebrate the season. And a tiny boxwood wreath! Similar here, and here.




Last year when I began the process of changing to neutral colors,  I purchased new stockings. I can not tell you how excited I was to find these! First of all, I adore burlap, and on top of that, they actually had all the letters that I needed for our names! I found a few similar options this year here, and here.


These vintage looking Santas are another favorite of mine! They are a mix of Home Goods finds with ones purchased at a local antiques store. However, I've found them a little more difficult to find this year! I did find some great options here, herehere, and here, and adorable ornament versions here, and here. I just love their old-fashioned charm!




More mercury glass balls in a vintage silver plate bowl.






Mercury glass trees mixed with fresh and faux garland decorate the mantel. I added some pine cones that I collected. Mercury glass tree options here, and here.






An old Restoration Hardware wreath hangs on the mirror over the mantel.




I filled a chippy French urn with white hydrangeas and some greens from Trader Joe's. I love to mix fresh flowers in my decor no matter what the season. The urn and the pedestal bowl are both vintage. But since vintage ones are so difficult to find, here are a couple reproduction versions that give a similar look here, here and here.


And the central feature of the room is the 9 foot tree so generously provided by our sponsor, King of Christmas!  In the past, I've had a live tree in here and a small faux one in the family room. But when I found out that King of Christmas was going to provide us with a tree, I thought I should get one a little taller than we've had before and put it in the room that gets seen the most, which is the living room. And I am so happy with how real it looks! Also, this tree was super easy to set-up. We literally took it out of the box and set it up in a matter of ten minutes. And it has a nifty little pedal that you step on to turn on the lights. No more digging around under the tree for the plug... genius!




Last year was the first time I've ever used wrapping paper that matched my decor, and I have to say, I'm hooked! I can't believe I used to have a million different patterns under the tree. Now I use mostly craft paper, with just a few papers that have the greens, golds and creams mixed in and I love how it looks. It is just a simpler, quieter look that really speaks to me right now.



And believe it or not, I've never done garland on the stairwell before. This is a first for me! These were from Trader Joe's and I simply added the burlap ribbon.

      Thanks so much for stopping by my friend! And thanks for all your lovely compliments! I know what you mean about the red - it's hard to get rid of!
