My holiday home tour

Hey y’all! Is it crazy time yet? Oh yes it is! Remember to breathe and enjoy…talking to myself here too! I am excited about this kids are excited and that makes it fun!

If you are interested and have time lick over to Restyle Source to see my Christmas decor this year…I am in a rush like most of you are today and all week I bet but I wanted to share…Or maybe do like me and look AFTER CHRISTMAS when you have time to sit in jammies and catch up on blogs while your kids play with new toys!;


They also put together a little tutorial on my plaid hoop ornaments some of you have asked about….


Click here for more on that simple project over at Restyle!

Here are a few more random photos…I went simpler this garland on fireplace and its feels cleaner and fresh…next year who knows;;

I used bayleaf this year on front door instead of boxwood and its held up pretty well..its done better inside than out..I still love boxwood and preserved boxwood is the best as you know. I am not sure where this ribbon is from…I had it in my stash.



The last few years I have used large silhouette ornaments I made from craft frames and various silhouettes of my boys. I was inspired by the tree here done by Juliet Romano that was in BHG years and years ago (2001? the olden days before Pinterest;;)….now I see people using silhouettes EVERYWHERE…like monograms, a classic gone trendy!


I love bottle brush trees! My stockings are from the Monogram Shoppe in Houston on San Felipe.



My best Christmas decoration…freshly painted built ins….awwww! Thankful for that project getting done before the holidays!

Thanks for looking y’all! I may try to post some more photos later when I have time to edit them..if you are interested;


Enjoy your week…I can’t believe Christmas is next week. I am off to pick up Henry’s NABI at Best Buy…I hope i can figure it out;;

    You have ghost chairs in your living room! I’ve been looking at various ghost chairs just this week for my daughter’s bedroom desk, but in the end decided on a bentwood chair. I was nervous that the ghost chairs would be a little rickety, like a cheap patio chair. Would love to know your experience and thoughts on those (as well as which seller you bought yours from) because I may still go that way in the future for another room in my house. xo HDH.

  2. Your home looks gorgeous, and your front door could not look more perfect! Have a great Christmas!

  3. Gorgeous….would love to see more, time permitting. Happy Holidays!

  4. Just beautiful, Holly!

  5. love your style holly. i love it.
    i love the front door. the pops of red. the silhouettes….love it!
    one of these days i just know i’ll plop down on your comfy sofa and we can chat about monograms and classics gone trendy
    merry merry christmas my friend

  6. Beautiful Holly….love the traditional feel.

  7. just beautiful! I would luv to know where you go ur outdoor light? I luv the post box – I wish out mailman delivered to our door – I just luv the nostalgic look of it.

  8. Your living room looks amazing.

    I have burlap ribbon on my tree. I think I have been using it for almost 20 years.

    Is that a new ticking stripe slipcover?

    Wishing you and your family a lovely holiday season!

  9. Everything looks lovely!

  10. Everything looks wonderful…as always! I would love to see more…love the built-ins!

    Merry Christmas to you & yours!

  11. Hi Holly, Your home looks amazing! I noticed the woven rug in the family room. I am wondering what your experience is with kids and that rug. I am about to buy that rug through pottery barn and have had second thoughts because I was thinking that if something were to spill on it, how would you clean it. Its not like you can just whip out your carpet spray like you would on a regular textured carpet. Whats your take?

  12. would it be wrong if I asked you to put it all back up in April? ;) i adore ur home always, but especially so at christmas! xoxo

  13. Absolutely charming! I adore the letters on the tree, ticking chair with plaid pillow, and your updated bookshelves with new blue and white jars. It all looks so fresh yet timeless. Where have you found the bottle brush trees? I’ve been looking without any luck this year.

  14. Gorgeous! And the woodwork looks fantastic-so fresh and clean!!!

    Love the freshly painted built-ins, what white did you use?

  16. hi holly I was wondering if ur tree was real or artificial? my hubby and son are allergic to real trees and I luv the look of yours and was hoping *fingers crossed* it was artificial and you could share your source. I luv the simplicity of your décor and i’m learning that less is more also. thanks!
