A nighttime Christmas tour

December 20, 2018

Hello all! I hope you've had a great week and are ready for the festivities ahead! I'm back with something I've wanted to do for years -- a quick nighttime tour. The magic of the decor and lights isn't completely captured in photos, but it's still pretty lovely. :) Night is definitely our favorite time of day during the holidays! 

If you'd like to see the room tours I've shared this month, you can see our cozy master tour (with tons of updates!) here, the kitchen and morning room tour here, our great room and then the basement decor here. I didn't change up much on our porch this year, so you can see all the details about that here

I'll just be sharing the photos, so if you have questions about anything please ask in the comments! I hope you enjoy! :)
