It’s been a long year in the making but I am sooo excited to be sharing our new Colorado home for the holidays!
If you are new here we moved from Texas to the Denver area a week before Christmas in 2022. Since this home was still being built we moved into a temporary house for three months which was not the original plan, but we made it work! During that time I dreamed about decorating this home and seeing snow tipped trees from our windows and now WE ARE HERE so come in and enjoy with us.
Last year we opted for a real tree because all my faux trees were in storage and to be honest I missed this Amazon tree! I love the flocked look and even after 4 years it still looks great. While I would love to be able to link all my ornaments and ribbon I FIRMLY believe that you do not need all new decorations each year.
I’ve had a neutral gold and silver tree for years so most of our ornaments have been collected over years of travel and fun finds at boutiques and home stores. This year though I wanted to add a little more depth with brown and deeper gold so I did find some good sets at Target.
While I do miss my more grand fireplace with no TV I feel Iike I made this space still feel like us without burning a faux fur stocking or blocking the tv. To give the garland a bit more fullness I mixed real touch Norfolk pine with a more full pine garland.
On the coffee table I added some ornaments, fresh springs, and pinecones to a bowl. Then I decided to grab some bells as my decor on top of a sock of books (I ended up replacing them all with holiday themed books). The I replaced my black candlesticks with these brushed gold ones. The last step I did replace these faux candles with these from amazon that have a real wick look and remote!
Our entry table also has a small bit of decor, so it still feels like I’m walking into my home! In the move we had a couple of reindeer that were brown so I went on the hunt to find replacements. I was SO shocked by the look and quality of these from Amazon.
In our home we have a few console tables and this one is right outside my bedroom. I really wanted a very serene but festive look. I framed an older pic of my kids and added a bunch of faux greenery and trees that we had from previous years.
In our bedroom I continued the very neutral holiday theme with this new screensaver I found for our frame tv! I love that I have the look of a picture with the functionality of a tv and with a $4 Etsy theme it really makes the mood! Plus these new little reindeer play off the wood tones of our bed and add that nordic vibe.
Heading into the basement we have our “kid” space filled with fun colors and all our collection of nutcrackers. As soon as we found this house I always envisioned a hot chocolate bar where the kids could get a yummy drink while watching a movie or coming straight in from the snow.
I hope you enjoyed this tour of our home! We are so excited to be settled in and spending our first Christmas here.
