Today I'm beyond excited to share with you my 2018 Christmas home tour & get this you also get to take a peek inside the beautiful homes of my friends.

If you're visiting from Instagram, Facebook, Youtube, or from my friend's Kirsten or Lauren - welcome! I'm so glad you're here with me.

Now let's get to the real reason you're here... Pictures filled with Christmas inspiration.
Normally, if you stopped by my home I'd offer you a glass of my famous sweet tea or a hot cup of coffee, but since this is a virtual tour we'll do a raincheck.
Formal Living Room
This is one of the first spaces you see upon entering our house & the home to our biggest Christmas tree. Also known as Christmas morning central & the location of all of our children's Christmas memories.
I changed things up on the tree this year & added a few unexpected details. I'm really loving it & I think it may even be better than last year's tree. I pulled in some bold pops of red with these beautiful pillows & comfy throw blanket. I think all of our goals is to progressively get better at decorating, so I'm happy about it!
I snagged these beautiful wingback chairs on Jossandmain's black Friday sale a few years ago & we absolutely love them. Here's a night shot of the space for you!

Formal Dining Room
Our dining room is a sweet little gem that is visible off the formal living room & rounds out the formal suite. It's one of my most favorite areas to experiment with decor & decorative treatments. I just adore the columns and decorative molding that flanks the space. We use this table for weekly family dinners & as overflow for our holiday entertaining.
