A Minimal Christmas Home Tour



With each year, I seem to pull out less and less decor from my Christmas boxes. But I always find a place for a few of my vintage ornaments.

We've been enjoying our "finished" house for the past year, and are starting to get the "project" itch. However we have really fallen in love with this house! And it's been so nice to live in a "finished" home. 

When planning out my holiday decor, I envisioned presents wrapped in MATTE black, natural, and muddy blues and/or pinks. I couldn't find what I was looking for...but luckily found this amazing blue floral paper at a local florist shop. It looks amazing with the black!

I was determined to have these little white clay stars...and had no choice but to MAKE them! I'm not a "crafty" person, so it was a challenge for me, but I LOVE LOVE LOVE how they turned out! 

That painting was a commission by a very close friend of mine last year. Still drooling over it!


My old cabinet is still the perfect piece for this room and has been for so many years! Although it used to have amazing original robins egg blue paint on it, I eventually worked up the courage to paint it Benjamin Moore's "Black Knight". 

I DIED over these pillows from Jamison Fry Co (a vendor at our Laurel, MS market last month). You know that feeling when you realize you've made an impulse buy? Well that feeling never came, and these are going to be cherished in my home for years to come!! 





I just repainted my table the most amazing color! I was drooling while I was painting! It's called "Vermont Slate" by Benjamin Moore. Very appropriate name since it's a pretty colonial blue, but with a touch of green that warms it up just enough for me! 

My island is also "Black Knight" by Ben Moore. 


I'm still so very in love and content with my kitchen. There is nothing I would change, and it feels so good to finally be at a place where I am content with my home and not on a constant quest to make it my dream home. I believe everyone can get to that point, but it takes some serious study and perhaps some real hard work!

The light over the sink is a vintage find from ebay. The dome light over the island as well as the pair over my dining table are vintage as well. 

If you don't know the story behind the stove, I'll give it in a nutshell. It belonged to my husband's great-grandmother. When an uncle offered it to us, it took some serious determination on my husband's part to get it working again. Thank goodness for Youtube! But I love it and it works so well for me!

That gorgeous painting back there is by the talented Shane Miller! He picked out the most perfect colors...don't you think? Check out his other amazing pieces @shane.artistry.



More of our homemade clay stars. I just picked out a recipe from Pinterest...so so simple! Stringing them was not as simple ;-)







I'm hoping to post a Christmas Home Tour Part 2 very soon, with more photos of the exterior and entry and maybe even a kids room project if I can get to it! Hoping you enjoyed the photos and can use some of the sources! 

Merry Christmas!!
