Cozy Christmas Home Tour Part II

I’m so excited y’all are here for my Cozy Christmas Home Tour Part II (if you missed part I, you can find it HERE!) I’m even more excited that i have teamed up with some other amazing bloggers to share a glimpse inside their homes for Christmas this year too! I will post links at the end of this post to each of their cozy christmas home tours, so grab a cup and coffee or cocoa and get ready for some Christmas inspiration!

For Part II, i decided to share with y’all my porch, entry and piano room.  Let’s start with the porch…

I kept the porch really simple.  A giant barnwood snowflake on an old vintage door, some fresh pine garland hung over the back of my porch bench, a small boxwood wreath and a few Christmas pillows. As you continue walking up the porch towards the front door, here is what you see…

I just added fresh pine bow garland around the door, a fresh pine wreath with berries, and two porch trees.  If you missed my super easy and cheap tutorial on how i flocked my porch trees, you can find it

Let’s go inside…

I re-did my entire entry last year…took it from dark to light, and added shiplap.  I love the way it looks now. So much brighter and welcoming.  If you want to see my post on my  Cheap and Easy DIY Shiplap, you can find it.

When you walk in the front door, the piano room is to the left.  I added some simple Christmas decor to my antique window that i turned into shelves, and a few simple items to the card catalog.  I like to keep my entry and piano room basically neutral and calming.

How cute are these little wooden pedastools that my mason jar with candy canes is on? I’m in love with them.. I wish i could send you to the source, but the company i got them from went out of business! If anyone knows where to find them, i would love to know! They come in a set of 3 and make perfect gifts!

If you look to the right from the piano room, here is the view you see…

I added a small flocked tree to my crock, my willow tree nativity (which i LOVE pulling out year after year…i think this is my 9th year , and i love it today as much as i did the first day) and a few other touches of Christmas to the space. I love moving these birch candle holders around throughout the year.  My Favorite thing that i added to this space this year though,  is my painting of the Park City McPolin Barn.  If you want to see more of my paintings, or would like to purchase an original or print, You can find me on Instagram HERE and HERE, or to purchase a print of one of my paintings, you can find them at Fine Art America. I am astounded and so humbled by all of you and your support for my art.  For those of you that have my paintings in your home, i hope you are finding peace each time you see them.

Here is a view from another angle of the entry…

Going into the piano room, here is what you see…

I pull out this piano book every year at Christmas.  It was mine from when i was 5 years old, and just learning to play the piano.  It’s tattered and torn, but i love listening to my littles play the songs from it.

Here is the view of our piano room from the entry…

I added some fresh pine garland to the chandelier and to my mora clock, a simple plaid scarf over the back of the chair, and a wool hooked pillow…

If you’ve been following me for any amount of time on Instagram, Pinterest or here on my blog, you know that our sweet mini bulldog, Tank,  is hugely social and hates to be left out.  This chair has become a favorite of his in the house. I even have a matching piece of material wrapped over my chair seat so i can easily pull it off and wash it (You do what you have to!) There is a beautiful fabric from Pottery Barn that is similar to the Grainsack fabric i used to recover the chair HERE.

Across from the mirror is my hutch i refinished last year…

It holds some of my favorite ironstone and crystal, and my set of 3 antique church birdhouses i found a few years ago at an antique store.

In front of the window wall in the piano room, i placed my Charlie Brown tree on top of our antique table.  I wanted to keep it VERY simple, so i added my chunky wool blanket as a tree skirt, and some chunky wool pom poms as ornaments.  Both are from Modern Wool, and i cannot say enough how much i love them.  As a gift to y’all, Modern Wool is giving my readers a 20% discount on your orders through the end of December if you use the code HORSE in the check out.  I Promise, this is a purchase you will never regret. It’s like snuggling in a cloud.

I also added some of my DIY embossed white clay ornaments hung with jute on the tree.  If you want to make your own, i have a super simple how-to post for you HERE.

Here’s a view of the ones i made for the Charlie Brown tree…

Seriously, they are so easy and so fun to make!
