Hey guys! It’s time for the 3rd Annual Holiday Home Tours here on the blog! This week I will be featuring some of my favorite blogger’s homes decorated for Christmas. These women have been so kind to guest post for me all week long and show you all their homes. As a big “Thanks!” to them, I sure would appreciate you visiting their social media pages and giving them a like! Also, if you see something you like here in this post, please take the time to click over to their blogs to pin any of their photos so they will get all that repin traffic. Today I’m excited to introduce Alice from Thoughts from Alice to kick off the week of tours for us. Prepare to have your socks blown off, peeps! Happy Holiday Home touring! ~Beth
Hello Unskinny Boppy Readers! My name is Alice W. and I blog at Thoughts from Alice. I cannot say enough how thrilled I am to be here today to share my holiday home with you. When Beth asked me to join her week of holiday home tours, I have to admit I was a bit awe struck. This is a real treat to me! And since today is actually my birthday…it is also a really cool gift! I am excited to welcome you into my festive home and hope you enjoy the tour.
I live in a small town outside of Rochester, NY with my husband Joshua and our two little ones, Hazel, age 3, and Owen, age 2. The winters are very cold here and seemingly last forever. I do love a white Christmas though. Here is our front porch decked out in a simple, rustic style.
Our house is an older home built around 1930 and a tight fit for our family of four at only 1300 square feet, but I do my best to make it work. (You can learn more about it on my home tour page). The front door enters straight into the living room which is basically our main “hang out area.” I went for a relaxed, “cabin” look in here with lots of woodland touches.
Across from the living room is the playroom. We have a huge school style chalkboard in there, along with an overabundance of toys and vintage decor. I added some festive decorations including some really cute wall decals by Jennifer Rizzo which you can check out in this post.
The next room we will head to is the dining room. It is my personal favorite this holiday season. I was going for a “eclectic, boho glam” look.
And then finally, we head into the kitchen. Our kitchen is still a work in progress. We have painted the cabinets light gray, but have more renovations in the works, including a tile backsplash, new counter tops and open shelving in the corner. We are working away on those projects as time allows. For now, I decorated it with some rustic and whimsical Christmas touches.
Thanks SO much to sweet Alice for opening her home to us today! Wasn’t it beautiful!? I appreciate your guest post today, and HAPPY BIRTHDAY! If y’all want to see more decorating ideas from all the past holiday home tours, click here. Be sure to check back tomorrow to see the next home on our tour!
