Holiday Home Tour - Our Casa

I've always loved going on Holiday Home Tours. While a typical Home Tour offers a view of what builders and designers are doing with the latest and greatest in home building, a Holiday Home Tour offers a walk through a bit of the magic that is the Holiday Season.  The homes are always resplendent in garland, ribbon and greens, and each is so unique and personal.  I certainly don't decorate our home on that kind of level, but I do try to make our home look, feel, and smell like Christmas. There's no one theme or color palette, it's really just about adding cheer to our surroundings.

Take a peek at how we Holiday our home!

Simple, fresh greens adorn our front doors.  I love the whiff of evergreens every time I walk in!

Our main Christmas tree resides in our Dining Room. The reflection of the lights in the window, and the vintage mirror make it a perfect spot for the tree.

A set of authentic sleigh bells jingle as you enter - a truly magical sound!  Our main Christmas tree is a whimsical take on traditional with plenty of red and green.  Elve's feet and candy references keep it feeling fun for our girls.

A touch of Christmas in the kitchen.

Christmas goes Carioca in our family room.  Our "blue room" houses several references to our time living in Brazil, so what better place to dedicate a tree to the colorful and carefree attitude of Brazil's Carnaval?  With this tree, anything - but boring - goes!
