Hey ya’ll! Welcome to Part 2 of my Christmas home tour.

Originally I had only planned to do one, large Christmas home tour, but when my wildly talented buddy Jess from Domicile 37 invited me to her Winter Electic Home Tour Blog Hop, I simply could not resist. I am a huge fan of all of the bloggers included as eclectic decor is my passion.

If you are joining me from The Striped House, thank you so much for stopping by. So giddy I get to collaborate with such an amazing group of bloggers.

For those of you new to my blog, I have been documenting the renovation of my 1980’s ranch home, where I have lived for over a year. Everything has been executed on a pretty tight budget. Here is my dining room.

I threw together an impromptu tablescape using items I already owned. The greenery is from my front yard.

You see, we don’t do a fancy sit-down dinner in my home for Christmas. We booze it up and munch on appetizers…..I am just not much of a cook.

And the booze comes in handy for breaking me out of my OCD tendencies with two boys under the age of three in my home.

If you haven’t noticed yet, I am a bit obsessed with turquoise and shibori.

Moving on to my kitchen….

I placed a wreath around the existing taxidermy and incorporated pops of color and shine with gold and indigo ornaments.

I love how my kitchen opens directly into the great room. This layout makes for an ideal party house.

I am really digging fur and velvet textures to make my light and airy living room feel warmer for the winter months.

Inspired by my sea glass collection, I decided to go with a turquoise, Christmas theme.

To keep it from looking like the disney movie Frozen,Β I added pops of warmth with gold .

Another current favorite of mine right now is Agate. These ornaments were a fun little DIY of mine which you can check out here.

Let’s walk thru the foyer and down the hall to my bedroom.

I considered putting a tree in here, but with all the baby gear thatΒ I have cleverly omitted (think pack n play, swing, changing table) , I thought it best not to add to the clutter.

And so some garland and an apothecary jar of vintage ornaments had to suffice.
