Christmas Home Tour 2012




Well folks, Matthew brought home something foul from law school, and I officially have the sickies. (he denies being the bearer of said sickness, however, it seems logical he would be, given I fell ill immediately after our first make out session of Christmas break.) Thanks a lot, you dirty law students! 

But anyway, I have still been plugging away at the decorating in our home, and today I have a few pictures for you. Hope you enjoy the little peek at our decor this year! And I hope your day is far less sniffly than mine...

  51. Everything looks so super cozy J! My favorite time of year...I think because at night when the sun goes down, the house turns all magical! It's all about the lights, isn't it? I love the red shiny balls in the chandelier in your dining room! I think that little touch is my very favorite part :-).

    ReplyDelete
  52. Looks great! G&C melt my heart.

    ReplyDelete
  53. Your home looks beautiful! I must admit I'm not usually a huge fan of the mounted animal heads but there's something really Christmasy about them!

    Your pups are pretty cute too :)

    ReplyDelete
  54. Oh good Lord. Your house is amazing. Umm... gees. Why can't I transform my SoCal condo into something like that. And yes... law students are sickies. I wouldn't miss a class unless my life depended on it and even then, I probably still would have went to class. One time I scratched my eyeball while studying and it bled. The eyeball bled. And I still went to the study session. People just need to learn the dracula cough. (Look it up.) We would all be much better.

    ReplyDelete
  55. I absolutely love the railing in your foyer! Gorgeous! And the dining room. I can't tell which is my favorite.

    Hope you feel better soon!

  59. Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree, how pretty is your house! -That was supposed to be song-like.
    Love all your little decorating touches! The Santa hat on the deer head, the stockings for your dogs, the little ornament on your tree with your guys' picture, etc. Maybe you should also be a decorator as well as a photographer! :)
    Sorry you're feeling sick, I hope you feel better soon!

    I was sick a few weeks ago and it was also the boy who brought the nasty virus home. It wasn´t law school though.

    Love your pics, they make me want to get into decorating my place too!

  82. My goodness you did a spectacular job! I love decorations, but often they look tacky. Yours are so tastefully done!

    ReplyDelete
  83. Lovely. I like the garland and lights on the banister. If only one didn't have to have stairs with it, I would be all about having a banister at Zoe Cottage! :)

    ReplyDelete
  84. This is a random question, but where did you get your garland for the stairs? I've been looking for something similar :) Thanks in advance!
