Christmas Home Tour


Welcome to Christmas In Texas Blog Hop. I was invited by a really sweet blogger named Stacy from
Poofing The Pillows Blog  This whole week she is featuring bloggers all over Texas. I felt honored she picked me!! Stay tuned and follow up the whole week to see all these amazing talented ladies. Not only are they creative they are all very kind woman. The kind of woman that lift each other up, you would be amazed at the kind e-mails going back and forth from the wonderful state of Texas. 
I will start with entering my home, Welcome!!! We live on over a acre lot in a beautiful community about 35 minutes from Downtown Houston. We have lived in our home for almost 2 years now and have made many renovations. Our house is a traditional open style floor plan.  I love coastal, traditional, charming, cottage styles. Enjoy!!

I have had this little dog forever, I have a thing for dog figurines
I made these little wreath swags for my outdoor light fixtures, very simple
I have a big tree in my entry it's hard to photograph from top to bottom.
I added lots of pheasant feathers this year. My husbands boss was kind enough to bring me some from his hunting trip after I told him I like them for decorating. I love neutral colors as you can see. I don't have a lot of color throughout my house but mostly neutral or natural tones and I really love the soothing quality of this palette.

Some fun ornaments
Once you walk around to the left or right of the foyer you come to my kitchen/living room. We spend lots of time in this room.

 I really love this tree it's a blue spruce with many lights. It's decorated similar to my entry tree but less formal and more family. I have several pictures of my kids on this tree. Those are my favorite ornaments!!
I found a new topper this year. I like it because it's casual but also has a coastal feel that I love.
 On the way out my dining is on the left side and I did a little tablescape.
  I try and use what I have and add a few new things each year. Most of my house is very simple, but collected and thought out. I love to decorate and I hope you enjoyed my tour.
Merry Christmas And Many Blessings in 2016 
Please check out these other wonderful ladies on the blogging Tour Today!!

  7. Your home is beautiful and your Christmas decor is stunning! I love the addition of pheasant feathers -- what a great idea! We have a small collection of them in a jar from our uncle's ranch in Del Rio. You've got me thinking about other ways we can use them! Merry Christmas!

  13. Katie,
    Your home is beautiful, from the front door, to the entry stairwell, to the open kitchen-family room. The overall design is a grand example of contemporary Texas-style homes (that I love!) Everything is beautifully decorated, and I love the swag you made for your entry lights.

    I pinned many of your photos to my Pinterest board dedicated to Christmas in Texas. https://www.pinterest.com/botanicbleu/christmas-in-texas-2015/

    Now, I'm off to visit more of our Texas friends to see and to Pin what they have shared as part of the Christmas in Texas tour.

    P.S. I am your latest Google Friend Connect follower.

  25. I love your colour scheme for Christmas, it fits your decor beautifully, and probably the season of the year as well. It's summer here for Christmas and for the last few years I have tried to find summer themed Christmas decorations - not easy.
    Have a lovely week.
