Happy Sunday; I hope you’ve all enjoyed your weekend! I don’t usually post on Sundays but I wanted to join in with Home for Christmas hosted by Hometalk.com and CountryLiving.com.
I had BIG plans for this bloghop; with an amazing DIY project that was going to knock your socks off; but alas, life is a little bit crazy at the moment and I never got around to completing that super cool DIY project (cue the violins). That’s okay though, I do have something to share; something I’ve been working on for the past week or so, something that I’m so happy to say I’m finally finished with!
That something would be decorating my entryway for the Christmas holiday. Truth be told, I’ve been slowly making over my main living areas each evening after work, so my home will be ready to share on Wednesday as part of the Farmhouse Christmas Home Tour I’m participated in. And of course, it will be ready to welcome our holiday guests, too.
If your a regular here, you know that I’m a neutral lovin’ gal, but with my family’s urging, I decided to step outside of my comfort zone and incorporate lots of pattern and pops of red this year (you can check out last year’s neutral holiday decor in this post).
And can I just say; I certainly don’t hate it. In fact, I kinda love it……. alot!
After putting on my brave pants, I was fearless in mixing plaids with checkers, with more plaids, and I think the risk paid off. I love the interest it adds to this space, not to mention the cozy vibe I was hoping for.
I also incorporated some fun vintage finds from the shop, like that enameled cooking pot-turned-christmas-tree-holder, and those vintage printer’s trays.
And I love to add natural elements to my spaces; they look great, are usually free, and add a little somethin’- somthin’ to a room. I brought back those pine cones and tree clippings from a recent trip to the mountains with my family. The birch logs were from last year; you can see how I used them to create an interesting tablescape in this post.
What do you think of my cozy, yet rustic farmhouse style entryway? Too much pattern, or do you think my crazy combo actually works? I’d love to hear what you think; you can connect with me here:
