Christmas Tour 2013 – Classic Red and White
“It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas…”
Ok, so I’ll spare you my singing voice, but I’m so excited my halls are finally all decked and ready to share with you! I’m stop #12 on the All Things Home Christmas tour – did you see all the beautiful ideas yesterday? Don’t worry I’ll include all the links at the bottom so you won’t miss a thing. Oh and did I mention there’s a giveaway?
PS I’m sharing over at
I’ll try to keep my normal rambling to a minimum and just share the tour; I’ll leave all the talk for later in the week when I share all the tutorials and details.
Come on in!
I kept it classic with red, silver and fresh evergreens on the outside this year.
This cute little reindeer greets you in the front entry along with my freshly planked walls.
My “snowball” garland dresses up the banister (read how to make your own here)
Over in the living room is my snowy tree. I was going for a snowball fight sort of feeling this year with a few splashes of red.
I know, red, in my crisp white loving house, but I was on strict orders this year (from my 5 year old little diva) that Christmas colors are most definitely red and green not white!
So red it is…at least in small doses…
My sweater embroidery hoop art was so fun to make (anyone can do it!.
I went a little crazy with old sweaters this year and made a sweater pillow to match my hoop art…and about a thousand sweater ornaments along the way as well.
Ok, and another DIY pillow – hi my name is Kelly and I’m a throw pillow addict.
My buffet got a little holiday cheer too.
Let’s dodge the snow balls and head back up stairs…
where I hung my Christmas sign, water skiing anyone?
Sneak a peek at my Christmas chalkboard.
More sweater ornaments, I told you I made just a few…
Another cute pillow (yeah, it’s a problem) adds some fun down by the kids rooms.
Last, but not least Christmas would not be complete without Silly our elf getting himself into trouble.
Well, that’s it – the grand tour! OH, except for Buddy, he was photo bombing me all day so I thought I would give him his wish and include him and his festive hat on the tour too :) MERRY CHRISTMAS!
Be sure to check out all the other amazing holiday ideas and decor from these lovely ladies…and I’ll be back later in the week with all the details of my Christmas tree and how you can make your very own army of snowball sweater ornaments.

I’m really truly completely in love with that snowball garland! I love all your tiny touches of red everywhere too. I also got in trouble this year for using a little too much white, so my daughter went ahead and decorated the livingroom tree completely in red and absolutely nothing else! Thanks for the lovely tour!
Gotta love having a little diva in the house ;) thanks so much Courtenay
Looks beautiful, Kelly! Love the classic look and splashes of red! Once again a job very well done! Merry Christmas to you and your wonderful family!

Red, green and white seem like the perfect Christmas combination to me.
Your home is always so welcoming and inviting, especially at Christmas. I love all your thoughtful DIY touches.

Kelly, what lovely style you have and it rings throughout your beautiful home. So many things I love…sweater hoop, and sweater everything…chalkboard and signs…tree is stunning…skates, and those skis made me smile! Thank you for sharing your talents with us! (We met at Haven at the Marta station.)

It is absolutely beautiful. Love it all. Great job.
Thanks so much for stopping back Kris :)
So fresh and inspiring! Looking forward to your tutorials, the sweater art is just brilliant. I received the same orders from my little diva, during my French Country stage, that there was not to be another sunflower amongst the holiday greenery :) Happy holidays to you and your sweet family! xoxo, Andrea
Gotta listen to our little divas, sometimes they know what they are talking about :) Thanks Andrea!
I LOVE red but I especially am loving it in your home! That little punch of color is FANTASTIC! It is all so beautiful, It’s hard to pick just one thing…but I have to say, your tree is gorgeous! ~Sonya
