christmas dining room

if each room was getting a theme for christmas then this christmas dining room would be called “blue christmas”. i didn’t really have a plan for this room i just know i wanted to do something with velvet and a white tree. the rest just kind of came together from there. i found this little […]

pre holiday house tour dining room

ok second room of the week for the pre holiday house tour is the dining room! I haven’t really changed much up here with the exception of my table decorations. i don’t know why i love doing that so much i think it’s because it allows me to be creative without moving a bunch of […]

pre holiday house tour bedroom
