Christmas Home Tour, Part 1

Hello everyone, welcome!

It's the most wonderful time of the year!

Are you enjoying all the Christmas inspiration throughout blogland?  
I swear sometimes it makes me wish I had 10 houses to decorate!

I'm going to begin my home tour today in our living room.

I had fully intended on going with a pastel palette
for our living room this year.
However, as I was dreaming of pastel colored sugar plums,
my 16 year old son decided to tell me,
"I prefer traditional red & green for Christmas."


Well, suffice it to say, his words stuck in my head.
Since Christmas is all about family,
I thought it best not to disappoint and
this is what I came up with instead.

Santa and his elves....

How I love that ladder from Décor Steals!
Such a versatile piece & perfect for Santa's elves to climb.

Traditional red & green all the way! 

I'm not sure if you'll notice from years past, but my
living room used to have a huge entertainment center on
this wall (below) with lots of shelves for décor. 
It was a tough decision, but we decided
it was time for something new.  I love this new look 
and I don't even mind that I now have a lot less
space to add décor.

I will return with more of my 
Christmas Home Tour during the week.

Thanks for stopping by!


Welcome! I'm Gina. Like the header says, this blog is all about home, food and life..


  1. How fun to see a Christmas post from you, Gina. I do remember the unit you had there before. This is a much 'cleaner' look and I bet the room looks a whole lot bigger.

    Hope you have a GREAT week-xo Diana

  2. So fun!!
    Love the traditional colors.

    Looking forward to the next segment of the tour.

  3. Kids can be real motivators to keep us trying different things. I love that you went for a bright, fun look. While your son isn't young, this might be his wanting to hang on to long ago memories. I love your tree and some of the larger ornaments-those pink flowers are precious!


  4. So glad I stopped by because your mantel is so cute and festive! I love how you've used so much red in your Christmas decorations because I love red!

    The elf clothes hanging on the line is the cutest!

  5. Gina, your home looks lovely. You are so creative and that ladder is darling. Your son's words really struck you. I am sure he loves the traditional look. Thank you for your well wishes.

  6. I adore the mantel and all the traditional colors!
