I can not believe Christmas is just a week away! Well, Christmas Eve is a week away but Christmas Eve is essentially the same as Christmas to children of divorce like myself. Can you ever have too much Christmas, though? Don’t answer that.
ANYWAYS, being the fairly new homeowners that we are, Christmas time is one of the only times our house feels really “homey” and decorated so I thought it would be as good a time as any to show you parts of our home! My friend Megan put it best when she stopped by last week, “It looks like Christmas exploded in here!” I took it as a compliment.
Before you ask me where anything specific is from, just know that whatever it is there is, a 95% chance that it came from either Target or TJ Maxx – and probably not this year. The only exceptions I can think of are that the buffalo check throw pillows are from Nordstrom and our stockings are from Pottery Barn (and are on major sale!) Praying those stockings don’t sell out before the 23rd so I can buy another one for whomever is in my belly! Oh, and if it’s furniture, it’s probably Ikea and if not, Target
Disclaimer: Our house is no where near where I want it to be decor-wise. Instead of putting a ton of pressure on myself about it like I have for last year, I’m starting to embrace the fact that it is a much slower process than I anticipated and that’s ok.
I love our entry, it’s one of the only spots in our house I really feel is complete! I love the paper stars we add during Christmas. They were from Target last year but I love this year’s gold and red versions, too.
This console table under our TV is the only thing left in our living room that makes me cringe, it’s got to go ASAP. However, it is much prettier this time of year all styled up for Christmas! I frame our Christmas cards every year to use as extra holiday decor.
Deer pillows were from JoAnn’s this year, buffalo check pillows are from Nordstrom here.
The Merry Christmas banner in the second picture is a free printable from Just Destiny that I found here then had printed at Walgreens. We hung it above the back door last year but I love where it is in our kitchen even more!
Our guest bathroom is the last place that gets some major Christmas loving! Adding Christmas frames and printables in cheap frames is such a fun way to switch up your decor! I know you are all dying to know where “Ho Ho Ho” canvas is from and let me just say, I take orders 😉 (That is 100% a joke, by the way.)
Hope you enjoyed this little peek inside our home!!
