Christmas Home Tour with Country Living

Christmas Home Tour  |  www.andersonandgrant.com

Hello friends and welcome to my Christmas home!  I am honored to be partnering with Country Living and Ashley at Cherished Bliss today to share my holiday decorating along with some of my best blogging friends.  This is going to be an amazing week filled with some truly talented ladies.




Cherished Christmas Home Tours hosted by Cherished Bliss and CountryLiving.com  #CLChristmasTour


Many of you may be visiting from Michelle's blog, Dandelion Patina.  (Isn't her home so inspiring?!?!  There is never a time that I leave her blog without something I want to try doing myself!)  If this is one of your first visits here, welcome!  I'd love to have you join my mailing list or follow along on social media during this holiday season so that you don't miss anything!

I'm going to keep the writing to a minimum today and just let you enjoy the pictures.  I took so many photos for this post that I'm sure you'll be seeing even more over the coming weeks in posts and in social media.  I've also got some DIY projects to share that are tucked into these images.

My goal for this season was to add just enough touches to make my space feel ready for Christmas without being stressed out by over decorating.  My favorite things to decorate with are greenery and other natural (or faux) items.

Let's start at the entryway, shall we?

Every home should have a place to be able to sit down and remove your outwear when coming in from the winter weather.  I've surrounded this white bench with little pieces of Christmas like a stocking and tree.

This little train was crafted by my grandfather.  I'll be sharing the details about it later in the season.

I created this "sign" made out of four boards to hang on the wall.  This easy project is something else that you'll be learning more about later in December.

Let's leave the entryway and move on to the next room in this tour......the dining room.

On the dining table is a collection of little bottlebrush trees and clear glass lanterns filled with cranberries.  (They are available at Kirkland's.)

A simple white chair fills in the corner of the room and has been dressed up with a Christmas pillow I painted last year.

On the other side of the room, the piano has been decorated simply with a few of my favorite holiday and every day decorations.

And finally, our last stop today is the living room...

The tree has been dressed simply with burlap upholstery webbing and red beaded garland, red mercury glass ornaments (from Hobby Lobby), silver glass glitter pinecones and lots of lights.

Beside the tree is a cupboard that has been topped with a wood rocking horse (tutorial can be found here) in front of a vintage fireplace screen as a backdrop.

One top of my trunk coffee table is a wire fishing basket filled with greens and pinecones.  It is resting on a burlap table runner that I created.  The tutorial can be found here.
