Dec 3, 2013

Welcome! Come inside and my little elf will show you around.

There he is! His name is Mario. He's...an Italian elf?

Because my decorations are neutral in the back of the house, I decided to go with a pop of red in the front.

Off the entryway is the dining room. A small centerpiece and a bit of ribbon is enough for everyday, but I do plan on putting together a tablescape for Christmas Eve.

Once you turn the corner into the living room the décor is completely different. It's cool and neutral, which blends perfectly with the room.

Mario is all ready for Christmas in his holiday sweater. I think red is his color.

Seriously, could he not be a dog model?

He doesn't move once you put the sweater on and I had to walk around him to take the picture. I wish my kids would take note!

On the other side of the great room I continued the neutral décor, but I did add a few pops of red.

And from the living area to the kitchen.

I also put a tree in my boys' game room. I needed a place to put our sentimental ornaments and the ones that the boys look forward to seeing every year.

  4. Jennifer, it could be in a magazine. Absolutely perfect! I especially love the tree - I can't imagine moving even one ornament (and you KNOW I always want to move them around on other people's tress :) PS - is the dog a shih tzu? We are getting our daughter a dog and considering them. I had one as a child. Yours COULD be a model!

  7. It's gorgeous! Love the touches of red at the front and the neutral scheme in your great room. Mario looks precious in that sweater (doesn't it make you wonder what they're really thinking when we do stuff like that to them!).
