12 Days Of Holiday Homes

I am so excited to be joining this wonderful group of ladies for the 
12 Days Of Holiday Homes.  Thanks so much to our gracious hostess 11 Magnolia Lane & Evolution of Style.

 If you are coming over from Pink Peppermint Design welcome.  Tammy has the most amazing home that she totally renovated last year and now she is decorating it to perfection.  Her Christmas decor is going to awe you.

Today I would love to share my Family Room Christmas. 

Instead of red, this year I am crushing on rusty orange and gray.  I loved it so much for my fall decor that I thought I would just continue it through Christmas too.

The coffee table holds my rustic gray Santa and his faithful reindeer and a pretty tinsel tree.

 I loved adding a few pretty packages to the bottom shelf too.

You can see just a touch of a small tree on the right hand side. 

I didn't do a tree in here last year, this is a small one that I had on the front porch, however - I have a 20 month old grandson and he needed a tree.  This tiny one is perfect for him to say he has a tree.  (I just found a really pretty flocked 6ft. tree on sale that I bought for next year - so he will have a bigger tree next year.)

I added some plaid ribbon and berry garland to make it a little more masculine.

Lynch Creek Farm graciously sponsored this tour and sent me this amazing wreath.  The one I chose is called Bronze Magnolia and has this darling little lantern that lights up.  It smells so wonderful, I wish we had smellavision.  We are adding our outdoor Christmas Decorations this weekend, so this stunning beauty will go on our front door.

This is really a tiny tree, but the perfect size for Ryan. (Santa might leave him a couple of toys under it too.)

Next up on the tour is A Blissful Nest.  Rebekah has a fabulous new home and I can't wait to see how she uses her signature blue for the holidays.

  1. Marty, I love your alternative colors! What a beautiful wreath, and this lineup of bloggers looks very attractive! I'm off to visit more....

  2. I love the unique color palette, Marty....way to think outside the box. Your family room looks so beautiful and inviting.

  3. Beautiful color choices, Marty--that's the way to break the Christmas mold!! How fun to have a young grandson to enjoy the holiday with, too. I'm sure he'll have more than one present under that tree. I wish we had smellavision, too, because I'm guessing that wreath is absolutely heavenly. Thanks for touring with us, my friend! XO, Christy

  7. Hi Marty! I love your color scheme this year. I bet you are enjoying that grandson. Safe to have a small tree this year! I have a new 6 mo old granddaughter that just started to crawl so I know next year will be a real challenge. Aren't those lynch creek farm wreaths just beautiful?

  8. I love your colors and all the fun little Christmas touches, Marty. I especially love the Christmas boxes under the table, and all together it works wonderfully.
    May you be blessed this Advent season.
    Visiting you from Imparting Grace.

  9. I would have never thought of using orange and gray for Christmas but you have made it work! Just lovely! Merry Christmas to you!
