Boho Chic Christmas Home Tour 2017 Part 1

Boho Chic Christmas Home Tour 2017 Part 1

Hey, beautiful babes! Today I am inviting you into my home as I share my Boho Chic take on Christmas decor in part one of my holiday home tour.

For the third year in a row, my sweet friend Carrie from Lovely Etc. has invited me to collaborate with a talented group of bloggers in the Very Merry Christmas Home Tour. At the bottom of the post, you will  find a giveaway where one  reader will receive $300 in Paypal cash (so be sure to stick around and enter to win….you may just be that lucky b*tch)!

For those of you new to my blog, my name is Erica and I am a potty-mouth boy mom determined to live a beautiful life  on a low budget. I have been renovating my 1980’s fixer upper for the past two years and share my decorating hacks, life revelations and DIY tutorials on the blog.

I really cannot help myself….I get an absolute kick out of being inappropriate as you can see from the banner displayed in my mudroom above.  In this crazy world we  live in,  I think laughter is so crucial to one’s sanity (especially this time of year) and that is why I just had to inject  “festive AF” somewhere into my holiday decor scheme.

For my loyal readers, you guys know by now that this comical verbiage succinctly reflects my personality and humor. I just had to!!! Luckily,  I didn’t have to explain “AF” to my boys as they are only young tots and have no effing clue what the banner says. I suppose if I were forced to explain,  I would euphemize a bit with “as fiddlesticks”.

Speaking of my little boys, for their sake,  this year I really wanted my Christmas decor to read as light-hearted, magical and colorful  (all while maintaining my preferred aesthetic which includes a strong sense of  boho, modern and chic facets). I drew much of my inspiration from the mid-century modern holiday decor of the past.

In fact, since the “millennial pink” trend hit the interior design scene, my obsession with pink has grown quite strong. I love how it warms up my mainly cool color palette and establishes a sense of modern femininity.

As soon as our Christmas tree goes up, old-school classics like The Grinch are played ad nauseam, the little ones go crazy with excitement and mama  begins her Holiday diet of Irish coffee and baked, chocolate-chip cookies.

While all of the pink ornaments provide a very vintage/mid-century feel, I was sure to inject some boho vibes into the mix with my DIY agate  ornaments along with some scrap pieces of mudcloth I had from another project.

Moving onto my kitchen where my DIY Cone pendant lights are still going strong, you can smell the scent of fresh baked cookies and our little Gingerbread house.

After consuming a few more cocktails to compensate for my obsessive compulsive nature of course, mama got a bit haphazard on the icing – also surrendering to my son’s aimless placement of gumdrops (not to mention the complete deviation of my pink and white color palette).In all fairness though, it was a special moment.

Wow! This is simply gorgeous. I love your tree most of all - it feels so modern but also classic and chic. Just beautifully put together.

And I love seeing your little dude under the table. Reminds me of my little guy. Love that our homes can be beautiful - and comfortable and cozy for our families.
