Christmas 2014 Home Tour

Sunday, December 7, 2014


Welcome to The Daily Nest's Christmas 2014 home tour!
I'm so happy you're here!
Come on in and let's start the tour!


Here we are on the outside. And I have to say that I can't take any credit for the outside lighting! My husband Mike is the whiz at lighting! Everything is on timers and comes on and goes off like clock work. Thank you for the all the hard work to make our home beautiful!


 I got this old sled years ago at an antique store. It's been displayed by our front door every Christmas for years.




 Come on in sit down and relax. How about a nice cup of hot chocolate or coffee?

When you first step into my home this is what you'll see first. This is an Ethan Allen Bombay chest that  I've had for years now. A magnolia garland surrounds my new Egan mirror from Pottery Barn and gives off the best reflection! 
The red tartan runner is actually well, not a runner. It's a throw that I bought from a store here in Tampa. So I thought why not just fold it in thirds and make it a runner! A little lantern filled with a topiary and flickering candles and of course a little boxwood wreath complete the entry table.


This is the living room. It's a very cozy and warm room. Perfect for snuggling up and watching T.V.



I placed tiny boxwood wreaths on both sides of the board and batten with a neutral chevron ribbon. Simple.


The sofa table is decorated with a big basket of wood, tree clippings and lights. Along with some oversized shiny ornaments.


I moved my leather ottoman out and moved this white ottoman in from the office to "lighten" up the room. I placed the ikea fur rug on top with a mirrored tray with some fresh tree clippings and lantern.


Red berries in a birch cylinder look festive on the T.V. console.


Of course there's my main man! My deer from Decor Steals watches over the room. But not in a creepy way! He's dressed for the occasion with some jingle bells and a boxwood wreath.


And here she is in all her glory! As I said before, "It's a beaut Clark, a real beaut!" Come on you know that movie!  (Christmas Vacation!)


The Dining room is set for Christmas guests. With silver chargers, sparkly gold ornaments and my paperwhites in the DIY brass bowls that I made. You can see the full tutorial here.



The backdrop to the dining table are these champagne glitter trees from Pottery Barn. It's like dining in an enchanted forest!


I placed boxwood wreaths on each side of the french doors to give the room some symmetry. These are beautiful and very lifelike from Save-On-Crafts.




Now we're in the heart of the home. The kitchen. Let me just say, I. Love. My. Kitchen! It got a complete over haul this year and you can see the whole transformation with this space here.


It's a very happy kitchen! Merry and Bright as I like to say. With splashes of red and white! The large window over looks the pool. And I have lots of counter space.

A milk and cookies/Hot chocolate station is ready for Christmas guests!



If you're new to my blog this is Buttercup! I love her!

The magnolia wreath is from Williams-Sonoma and the wire trellis is from a store here in Tampa, RareHues.

Now we've entered the master bedroom. I kept the mantel neutral so it has a relaxing element to it.


The fireplace gives it that warm Christmasy feeling all by itself.


There is nothing better than snuggling up in this bed in front of a roaring fire!


We painted the fireplace white and I love it! It really gives the room a clean, fresh, updated look. You can see how it looked before here.


The master bathroom's decor for Christmas was kept simple. Because I don't like a lot of clutter in the bathroom.



I found this white deer head at Homegoods. I just framed him with an empty frame added some bells and a boxwood wreath and I think he looks fantastic!


The bamboo ladder also got a wreath and deer hand towels.



Sydney, Mike and I wish you a Very Merry Christmas and the happiest of Holidays!!
Thanks for visiting my home tour!
