I’m usually not one to decorate for Christmas until after Thanksgiving. I always felt like it took away from the fall feel of Thanksgiving. But, here we are, decorating for Christmas! This is our first Christmas in our new house, so I wanted to actually enjoy the decorations this year. It always feels like it goes too fast. With it being our first year in our home, we don’t have too many decorations. Our house style is very simple, so with our decorations, we wanted to keep it simple, too. We go for a less is more feel. Anyways, here’s a look at our new home and house decorations!
We went for a more minimalist tree theme this year, too. A simple tree skirt, only a few red ornaments, and a white garland. Ah, it’s perfect! Not sure why I didn’t turn on the lights for the photo, but you get the idea. The two chairs on the side of the tree were found at a thrift store! They are so comfy. The blanket is the falsa blanket from Wild Sunshine Threads.
We moved our Ikea couches around a bit to be able to fit the tree in the perfect spot. I love the new set up! It’s so open, yet cozy and comfortable. We love this room because there is no TV. So naturally when we sit in here, we just end up talking for hours. Gracie loves reading in this room :).
Here’s a look from another perspective. As you can see, our walls are pretty bare. While I LOVE them because it’s so simple and eye pleasing, I do feel like it’s missing stuff on the walls. Any ideas?! I’m stumped.
As you walk through the house, you enter the family room/kitchen area. Here is a look at the tree from the family room.
On the wall, I hung a shelf with some of Gracie’s christmas photos and another little tree. I call this tree Gracie’s tree, hehe.
In our kitchen, I put just a few decorations up. A little tree on the table, a banner on our chalkboard, and some other little things.
We just mounted the TV onto our kitchen island so that it can be tucked away when we’re not watching it. Love when the TV is not the center of attention.
Our table is from Ikea and our chairs are from amazon (Giantex eames chairs).
Well, there ya have it! A sneak peek into our home and our christmas decorations! We are still finishing up our bedroom and office, so I will share those soon! Are your christmas decorations up? I would love to see them!
