Stylehouse Interiors Christmas Home tour 12 days of Holiday homes

/ / /

I am so excited to be joining with a fabulous group of bloggers to bring you 12 days of Holiday homes! Thank you Lynch Creek Farms for sponsoring this post, and  11 Magnolia Lane  and Evolution of style  for hosting the tour! If you are just joining me from Kellyelko.com, welcome to my home! I joined Magnolia lane last year for their tour and I have made so many changes to my home since then!   **this post contains affiliate links***StyleHouseinteriors.net Christmas 2015

The photo above is actually from the Christmas 2015 tour (you can see that HERE), I didn’t do much with my porch this year and I love this photo so much I thought I’d throw it in again. I have been making a few updates (while my house is currently on the market, crazy I know). With everything I’ve had going on, plus adding my client Christmas decor into the mix, I ran out of steam. I didn’t to half as much with my Christmas decor as I have in years past, I’m not disappointed at all though! Step inside and lets take a look around!

Stylehouse Interiors Christmas tour 2016

Fresh garland from Lynch creek farms with seeded Eucalyptus

This year I chose to use fresh garland from our sponsor Lynch Creek Farms this is their premium garland, it is stunning!  I added a little seeded eucalyptus and some ribbon to create a simple yet elegant look, plus my house smells AMAZING!

Fresh Garland, eucalyptus and ribbon, simple and elegant

White christmas entry feather trees+fur

I switched things up quite a bit over last years look by keeping it light and white. The fur throw adds some warmth to the space and the feather trees soften things up a bit. The mirror was borrowed from the office and the candlesticks are from last years table setting. I created the floral arrangement using floral picks from the mantle last year and adding them to my ginger jar. By shopping my home a little I was able to completely change my look without purchasing anything new.


Strategically placing mirrors at in your christmas decor to reflect your christmas tree adds the illusion of more Christmas lights

I love that you can see the refection of the Christmas tree in the mirror, it gives the illusion of more Christmas lights since I don’t have any on the railing this year.

Now on to our home office, I really didn’t change anything in here this year, other than adding the print I made a few years ago using a download from Dear Lillie. The ceilings are quite tall in this room, making our 10′ tree seem tiny, in reality this room is pretty small and the tree takes up half the room!

Flocked tree with Black and Gold accents

If you look closely, you can see I used sections of metallic print fabric in the tree in addition to the ribbon, you can see a tutorial I created last year on how I decorated this tree HERE.

My family room is where most of the changes have been made, I can’t wait to show you!

Stylehouse Interiors Christmas tour 2016

Painting the built ins white allowed me to go a bit more bold with my color scheme, and the room feels so much brighter and bigger! You can find the art created for me by the enormously talented Christie Adelle HERE. It’s such a beautiful piece I wanted my Christmas decor to compliment it, so I used non traditional colors of teal and gold.

The furniture arrangement is temporary because we are still waiting on our new sofa to arrive. I don’t mind this set up at all since our tree from The King of Christmas is so huge! You can find this 10′ flocked LED tree HERE.

Simple christmas mantle Stylehouse Interiors

I kept the Mantle simple, using a pre lit flocked garland and gold christmas balls in varying sizes.


Coffee table styling for the Holidays

Try using simple items in your decor like a wrapped gift, or a bowl filled with ornaments.

I like to look outside the Christmas isle for items to use on my tree, the sunburst mirrors you see came in a set of 3 for only $12 at At Home! That means they were less expensive than almost any of the other ornaments on my tree!

Decorating for Christmas with non traditional colors

I love the little white ceramic houses I found at At home for my centerpiece. They add a touch of whimsy to the table setting.


Simple Christmas centerpiece

Heading into the kitchen, this is where I really kept it simple this year.

Adding touches of Christmas to your kitchen

I added the same Christmas village to our range hood, they are darling all lit up at night.

Christmas kitchen decor

I am always trying to think of other ways I can use my Christmas decor, I already have a plan for this little village next year! It’s going to be so fun!

I added some cloves to oranges and put them in a bowl. It was something my mom used to do, it makes the kitchen smell amazing!

Oranges+Cloves smell amazing in the Kitchen at Christmas time


That’s pretty much all I did in the kitchen this year. It may not seem like it, but I am really trying to simplify at Christmas time. I’m trying really hard to enjoy the season and spend time with my family, after all that’s what its all about.

I realized too late in the day that I forgot to snap pics of my bedroom, I have a few photos from another tutorial I did on 5 steps to create a beautiful tree. I’ll try to update this post with more photos later.

Blush and gold tree

I hope you enjoyed the tour, a lot of work goes into decorating, photographing and editing to create these tours (not to mention trying to keep the house clean with a family of 7) I can’t tell you how much it means to me to have you stop by for a visit! *Disclaimer, what you are seeing is a much cleaner and perfected version of how this house really is. Our home is very lived in and only looks like this long enough to photograph it 😉 the rest of the time it is a home to a busy family!

    I can barely get past the extreme cuteness of the little guy on the front porch with his plaid shirt tail peeking out from under his sweater to appreciate all the gorgeous decorations!

      Thanks Cassie, I struggled a but having zero traditional colors in my decor but it’s definitely grown on me! My Black and gold tree is my favorite! That’s why I didn’t change it one bit, I’d leave it up all year if I could 😉

    OMG, your entire home is absolutely stunning! Elegantly beautiful!!!! I love both your magnificent tress, and though your photo of your front porch was from last year, I cannot blame you, not with that super cute model there! 😉 So honored to share this home tour with you! CHEERS!

      Thank you so much! I love my little model! we need to recreate that photo this year because he’s missing his front teeth for Christmas this year 😉 now that I am done with the exhausting task of decorating and photographing I can enjoy the rest of the season and sit down and get caught up on everyone else’s tours, I can’t wait!

    Oh Jen, your Christmas decor is so breathtaking! That tree!! Wow! You really did such a fantastic job decorating it beautifully with just the right touches. I guess this is the first time that I’m seeing you painted your bookshelves (since they were dark). I love the white and did the same thing in my home. That white has made all of the difference for us and making the room feel lighter. It looks stunning in your great room! Thank you for sharing your festive and cheerful home with us Jen. Merry Christmas! :)

    Jen, your home is absolutely gorgeous! I think my favorite room (if you forced me to choose) would be your office. I love the contrast of the walls and the gold accents in the tree and accessories. Simply stunning! How is your house still for sale in its beautified state?!? Thanks so much for joining in this year – I hope you’re able to relax a bit now that you have the decorating out of the way. :-)

      Thank you so so much Jenny! It was an honor for me to join the tour! I have to agree that my home office is my favorite too :) I think the only reason my house is still for sell is because I don’t make it easy to get in to see it 😉 I have so many showings I’ve turned away because I have other things I am working on. I turned away a showing today lol! We really aren’t trying hard, but if it is meant to be it will sell :) Thanks again for all your work in putting the tour together!

      Thank you Amanda, that seems to be the consensus, the office is a fav! It’s my favorite too, I almost didn’t share since it’s basically unchanged from last year, I love it too much not to though. Thank you for your sweet compliments XO Jen

    Wow, Jen!!! You completely nailed your Christmas decor. The most beautifully glam touches, fun pops of blue in the family room and your bedroom?! YESS!! Your home office shots stole my heart. The styling in front of the tree and that fur STOOL swept me off my feet! Excellent job! Merry Christmas to you and your family 😉 – Rachael

    Beautiful Christmas decorating! I just have one question: Where did you get the lovely “Prince of Peace” scripture in the gold frame? Did you make it yourself? Lovely!

    Reply
    • jen.stylehouse@gmail.com December 6, 2016 8:45 pm

      Hi Candace, yes, I sort of did make it. I purchased the download from Dear Lillie (the link is in the post) then I had a friend enlarge it and print it in gold vinyl, I then added it to an inexpensive mirror I had painted with chalk paint. It turned out better than I could have imagined! It’s my all time favorite Christmas piece :)

    Jen, your Home for the Holidays is breathtaking! The trees are glamorous and majestic setting the tone in your exquisite home. I must say that I loved your “disclaimer” about your home in “real life” … The garland is gorgeous… I will have to keep that in mind for next year!

      Thank you so much Tricia! I don’t know about you, but the one room challenge kicked my butt this year! I didn’t have the energy to tap in to about 75% of my decor this year. Simplicity was key! I popped over for your tour, it looks amazing! I’m so in love with that space! Merry Christmas! XX
