2015 Holiday Home Tour

This is my first year posting a holiday home tour for Christmas. I am excited to share my home with you and hope to inspire others. I have considered changing things up a bit next year, so this might be the last year you see some of these decorations.

Welcome to A Coastal Cottage!

When you come through the front door, you enter into the living room.

This is where I have my wintry themed Christmas decor and tree.

On the console is our Christmas Village and a few coastal accents.

(I have since removed the berries out of the top of the sign. I was entertaining the idea, but thought it was too much)

Next, we have the dining area, which is in the center of the house, connecting the main rooms.

This is the first year that I decided to decorate the guest room, but it was a last minute thought. I put the comforter we used in our bedroom in there as we have a coastal theme in the bedroom and the red and grey just doesn’t match. I’m not sure where I will go with this next year. We will see. I still need to paint the bed to match the room.

We have a basket on the bed for when guests arrive. Its usually filled with a new mug, some treats and other goodies. These are for my father and bonus mom.

This is the tree in our master bedroom. It is a coastal themed tree. I still need a ton more ornaments to adorn it with as well as decor, etc for the room.

And lastly, is our family room. We have it decorated in a woodland type theme with plaids, reds, browns and animals typically associated with winter. If you follow me on Instagram, then you know that I have plans to paint this room Intense White as the color in there now photographs poorly and it looks terrible with other light and things reflecting off of it. I have grown to hate it. It was a color requested by my husband because he wanted something “colorful” and beachy. Sorry, but it has to go!
