Holiday House Tour: The Living room + our eat in Kitchen Nook

With Christmas just a few days away and on the rare occasion that our house is clean. I thought what better occasion then to share our cozy little living room with you. This is the room that we spend the absolute most time in especially when we have family and friends over. When we were first shown this house with our realtor, this was the room that we really fell in love with. Everything is super open and it has such great natural light that flows through its many windows each morning. It's so gorgeous especially on a super sunny day. I chose with the decor to keep everything pretty neutral and then to bring in pops of color with art and textiles. There is still quite a bit of work that I would like to be added to this room (drapes, a larger coffee table, a wooden mantle, ect.) but for now we think it's pretty cozy! We had so much fun decorating for the holidays. I kept the decorations pretty neutral here as well with lots of gold, black and silver, then brought in some color with pom poms, handcrafted ornaments and seasonal greenery! Christmas is my all time favorite holiday and it has been such a joy for J and I to be able to invite our friends and family to our home for this special season. Eat, Drink and Be Merry sweet friends! Happy Holidays!
