Tour of our Christmas great room!

Hello my friends! I'm back with another Christmas tour -- this time the family room. Thanks so much for your kind comments on the kitchen and morning room! :) The family room decor isn't much different than it was last year, but I've quite a few DIY projects in this room since then!

Like the last tour, I will leave links under each photo to projects or posts. I'll also sprinkle in some of the same views from last year so you can see the changes I've made in here! 

Enjoy my favorite room in the house -- we love the high ceilings, the spaciousness and the beautiful staircase in this space. :) The first before and after -- with the dark blue added and DIY built ins:

This is how it looked last year:

This angle is one of my favorites (if not my favorite) in the whole house. LOVE!

I went with fresh greenery on the stairs this time -- I like to use them here and there in the house, but last year we had just moved in and I used our faux greenery. 

I love the look of the real swags:

A tour of our Christmas kitchen and morning room

Hello there! The countdown is on, right?? Not long now till the big day. It felt like I decorated later than ever this year and even though I feel like I kept it fairly simple (we're talking blogger simple here, OK? 😂), it still took me a few days to get it all done. 

It's so nice to enjoy the house now! Next year I AM going to start earlier. I know it's been a year, but I still feel like we're getting settled in the new house. I think next year I'll feel more on top of things. 

For now I'm going to share the kitchen and dining area with you! I'll do a full tour sometime over the next two weeks, but for now I'm breaking it down a bit. Enjoy!! 

I'll add links to specific projects under each photo:
