house tour – christmas edition!

seeing how there are only four more days until christmas, i thought it would be fitting to post the christmas edition of our house tour :] enjoy!

  

a. and i wanted a big, real christmas tree this year – but since our kittens have never experience the holiday season before, we figured it would be a smart decision to just get a small one [side note: the kittens have done good so far… they’ve only knocked it down once!]. the crates ended up being the perfect stand for the presents and the tree.

  

call me crazy, but i am obsessed with matching the wrapping paper to the the tree and to the holiday decor. i wrapped everything in red/white or brown paper – then a. came along and wrapped his things in lime green. oh well, still looks good, i suppose ;]

  

why yes, that IS a peace sign made out of pipe cleaners.

  

details make the space, and these two are my favorite.

  

my red bookcase got a little makeover when mi madre sent me that white owlie oil diffuser. isn’t it the cutest? the wall opposite of the kitchen was looking a bit bare, so i added some frames & some icicles.

    

the clipboards are a bit more cheerful now that they hold holiday pictures and our stockings :] the lone window was the perfect place to hang snowflakes and put some trinkets.

  

in order to bring the color red into the kitchen, i opted to get holiday poinsettias instead of regular flowers. our dining room now holds a couple books, a vintage mirror and porcelain birds. oh, and sweets, too!

i just love decorating for christmas :] are you finished with your home and your tree? i would love to see pictures!
