If you have been following my blog recently, you know that I have a Let It Snow, white winter wonderland theme going on this year inside our house! There is the snow village table setting and diy wall decor in the dining room, silver balls pine spray staircase in the entry, wooden shelf paper Christmas tree in the living room, and the white poinsettia shimmer wreath trio in the kitchen. So today I am excited to share the rest of my holiday decorating ideas and tips with you! Here is Christmas Home Tour: Let It Snow.
CHRISTMAS HOME TOUR: LET IT SNOW
For my theme this year, I chose the colors white, silver, and gold to mix in with all of my navy and indigo blues.
I used these dominate colors in all of the larger areas of our home, so that they would have a cohesive look. Then in some of the smaller areas, (like the office and powder bath) I used reds, pinks, and turquoise to have a little fun!
This post is filled with a ton of pictures!! I tried to pull out as many new or different photos (from the posts mentioned above) that I could, so that you can see other areas of our home.
Let’s get to the home tour!
CHRISTMAS HOME TOUR: LET IT SNOW
Our entry is filled with a ton of white and blue already, so I really punched up the texture and glimmer.
I added silver wreaths to the barn doors, and simply added a white grois grain ribbon tied in a loose knot.
Of course, no home tour is complete without my Boomer!! He loves to be with me when I’m decorating, and especially when I’m taking pictures!!
Then I added the pine sprays to the staircase banisters, and kept that same theme going with the grois grain ribbon.
I am loving my new sign from Home Goods also!!
Click here for the song by Hillsong Worship – Words and Music by Ben Fielding & Brooke Ligertwood. It is one of the most beautiful songs I have every heard!
Instead of tying a loose knot though, I went with a loosely tied bow. It still gives off the same “non-stuffy” vibe, but adds a little weight to the top of the sprays.
For more information on the pine sprays, click here.
I made these navy and white buffalo check embroidery hoop ornaments a couple of years ago, and simply change them up every year.
The gold dot bows, organza ribbons, and white pom pom ornaments were the perfect accent to my winter theme.
TIP #1: Use cake plates or cake stands to elevate smaller Christmas accessories when decorating.
This also helps draw attention (or extra focus) to items that wouldn’t get noticed – like my white furry silver sleigh!!
TIP#2: Add a couple of sparkly snowflake ornaments to your candle lanterns.
I know most of us already know the little trick of adding ornaments or greenery to lanterns, but adding some snowflake ornaments gives a little extra texture too.
You can always add the ornaments to your chandeliers – like mine from last year.
Of course, there’s the literal way to express your let it snow theme – haha!! Click here for wall sign tutorial.
But it’s really more than just a sign. The gold glitter letters bring in that winter shimmer that I needed, and the white pom poms and feather wreath wreath bring in the snow texture.
And don’t forgot about a Christmas Tree centerpiece or using snow village ornaments . Click here for more info on the winter tablescape.
TIP #3: Fill a wooden tray with flocked picks, glimmer balls, and a white poinsettia to add some winter shimmer.
Turn a plain tray into an accent piece, with a couple of Christmas-y accessories and glass hurricane.
TIP #4: Add wooden shelf paper to top of furniture to warm up your let it snow theme.
This is a great way to add a little warmth to all of your white, so it doesn’t come off too cold.
- P.S. I’ll try to do a post on both tips 3 & 4 soon! But you’ll recognize something similar…..
….right here!! Do you recognize the shelf paper? For more info on the wall tree click here.
I had to work around Boomer for the living room pictures. It’s kind of like he’s one of our presents – love it!!
TIP 5: Use pom pom garland on your tree(s) – to keep with the snow theme.
I used a TON of whites and ivory in the living room, with pops of gold and silver.
TIP #6: Add wooden beads to hurricanes to warm up all of the white.
And remember that white poinsettia, flocked picks, and glimmer balls that I used to “dress” up the wooden tray in the dining room?
Well, they also were used to accent the wreaths in the kitchen.
Now, your’e dining room and kitchen can have coordinating Christmas accents.
For more information on the wreath trio, click here.
And don’t forget your gold shimmer too. It really adds a lot of depth to all of the silver and whites.
TIP #7: Add different shades of gold pillows to sofas, chairs, & baskets.
TIP #8: Place gold ornaments on trays and on mantel garland to give extra depth.
I have had these 2 shimmery topiary trees for a while now also, and they find a new home each Christmas!
This year they found their way to the mantel – love how they complete the look.
TIP #9: Use a white fur throw blanket for your tree skirt.
Then when Christmas is over, you can continue to use it for the rest of the winter season.
And don’t forget about about your angelic or nativity ornaments to finish out your Christmas decorating!
Thanks Mom – love this one!!
OFFICE & POWDER BATHROOM:
I just wanted to share a couple of pictures of our office and powder bath.
They are always a little “different” than the rest of our house, just so I can add a little whimsy and personality!
I haven’t shown any pictures of our office before – well because this room is ALWAYS a mess – haha! So, at least I was able to clean it up enough for a couple of photos.
My mom and girls made the green garland accents with turquoise bows and hot pink ornaments years ago. And they will always find a home each year too.
I love them in here with all of the bright colors.
The red, hot pink, and turquoise really pop off of the family photos, and against all of the black and white. This little vignette has really been one of my favorites for the last 2 years now!
And of course, Boomer again too 😉
And last but not least is my “crazy” room! It’s where everything is welcome & anything goes!
My girls still love this red sleigh with the teddy bears, so I use it every Christmas.
It always held the extra toilet paper (in our bathroom before we flooded) because we only had a pedestal sink in here.
Now, it found a new home for holding the Christmas hand towel.
The blue snowman towel (above) and the blue snowman soap (below) – still kind of have a winter snow theme LOL!
And the pom pom trees fit perfectly with my other garland on the Christmas trees and Let it Snow Sign. I do love my white pom poms!!
Hope you found some inspiration and helpful tips & tricks to create your own let it snow winter Christmas decorating theme this year!!
HAVE A VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS & HAPPY NEW YEAR!!
LOVE & CHRISTMAS HUGS!! 🙂
