Welcome to Day 2 of our Annual Holiday Tour of Homes. Today is the day where we are sharing our Dining Rooms and Entryways, and today I am up to share some of our holiday home for this year. Welcome to those of you hopping over from Tammy at Pink Peppermint Design, her foyer is so pretty and welcoming!
We have five other homes sharing today as well, so I’ll link them all below. Each day this week we have a group of home decor bloggers showcasing their holiday decor, the full list of everyone sharing is at the bottom of this post.
Here is a quick look at the console table inside our Foyer, the sources for this area are below. I used a gold hoop wreath from HomeGoods and added a festive garland to the table.
Our Dining Room has already been through several iterations of holiday decor this year for various photoshoots. The earliest was its red and white look, which happened back in October for a local magazine shoot (that I mentioned in yesterday’s post), more details here.
I really wanted to use more traditional colors in my decorating this year, especially red and green. I had good intentions, but I got sidetracked by the emerald green pillows I bought at HomeGoods a few months ago. Those set me down a slightly different path, which I’ll show you in a minute but first, here are a few more photos from our holiday Dining Room when it still had a red & white theme.
Shop the room sources~
After bringing home the pretty blue/green velvet pillows, I started down a green path. I found some vintage ornaments in the same color at the Lucketts Holiday Market and decided to switch the tree in here over to my new color scheme just in time to shoot the photos for the Greenleaf Gifts post.
You would think I’d have been done changing things at this point, but once I put up our Living Room tree I decided I didn’t want the beautiful vintage ornaments on the tree that was tucked into a corner of the Dining Room and instead, I wanted them front and center on our large family room tree (which I’ll show you next week). I simplified the tree in here back to just gold and silver, moved the green pillows and ornaments over to the living room and once Thanksgiving was over, I added a few other decorations to the surfaces in the room.
The biggest change in here is that we also added a new chandelier just in time for Thanksgiving. I love how much sparkle it adds to the space. Previously we’d had the craftsman style light that the builder left (very builder basic) and I’d been on the search for the perfect chandelier for over a year. I kept coming back to this one, even though with the brass and so much crystal I knew it would make the room feel very formal. In the end, I decided that most of our events in our Dining Room and celebratory in nature, so a little extra sparkle never hurt, and I love how it looks now.
I’ll be back on Thursday to show you our kitchen and breakfast room for the tour, and here are the other blogs that are sharing today.
Next up on our tour is Tammy from Pink Peppermint Design, she always inspires me. You will love her decor!
