A Colorful Christmas at Home Coming

Yup! We're still setting up for Christmas in our house, even through our dust-filled home renovation project. Are we insane? ...probably.

Justin & I briefly talked about not decorating or putting up the Christmas Tree this year because we're so deep into our renovation - but what fun would that be?! So this weekend, we cleaned up the house, dusted off the 2-inches of sheetrock dust from all our furniture and put up the tree (while watching Christmas movies, of course) so we could participate in Like A Saturday's Christmas Tour of Homes!

So if you've hopped over from The Happy Housie or Like a Saturday, welcome to Home Coming!!


While we didn't decorate our front door (or even put lights up) this year because of the remodel, I did want to share just how white of a Christmas we'll have here this year. And it's snowing again today!!!

But now, welcome into my warm, little, Minneapolis home.

For any of our loyal followers, you know that Justin & I both love color. We're not afraid to be bright and bold in our decor choices, and Christmas isn't anything different for our home!

Don't be misleaded though to think that our house is this beautiful during the remodel. The rest of our house looks like this.  Ha!

  7. Your pillows are so darned cute and that sign about the filthy animal, lol, cracked me up. Love the garland of round ornaments over the window, so gorgeous, love all the color. Hey ya gotta do what ya gotta do so who cares what rest of house might look like? If your living room is any indication of what rest of house will look like after all the work I can hardly wait to see it all. Did you make the pillow covers? Even if you didn't they are awesome. Look doable too. Wishing you and yours a very happy Christmas

  8. I absolutley love everything about your living your. The Christmas decor and the regular decor. My favorite parts were the "Merry Christmas ya filthy animal" printables and red and grey tree pillows. You have such a beautiful home!
