Home for Christmas Holiday Tour home-for-christmas-collage

For this home tour, I’m starting in the foyer.  The builtins received a festive touch of ornaments, twine wrapped paper trees, and store bought pinecones (they don’t exist on our sub-tropical island, boo..).  They add a little glamour and texture to our beach finds, art, and color-coded books. SONY DSC foyer-ornaments-watermark

SONY DSCIn the holiday home tour last week (which you can find HERE), I shared a lot of details of our Christmas decor but this time I wanted you to see what our space looks like as a whole.

Our bright Okinawan rental home was the perfect neutral backdrop to showcase an eclectic tree with a mix of copper and pink.


DIY stockings with trim are hung on the picture ledge and framed by a renter friendly DIY washi wall.


Pops of black and white really bring the holiday decor together in the living room and compliment the piano.



Kitty matches our fur pillows and ornaments perfectly, so naturally he’s a part of the decor.  Doesn’t this picture make you chuckle? SONY DSC SONY DSC

I’ll be sharing how I repurposed our ornaments to fit into this year’s color palette soon.   The tree is probably my most favorite.  Here you can see it with some of the funny quirks of our Japanese home. Wall unit, oddly placed  sconces and molding, pinch and pleat curtains, styrofoam ceiling….  It’s part of the experience friends. SONY DSCSONY DSC

  1. Kathy, it’s gorgeous!! I always love the way you style your built-ins but for this home tour I especially like the color combo (the purples & golds are perfect). Great picture with the kitty squished under there. I also love the gold & white side table / dresser. Did you DIY that? Feel free to point me in the direction of the tutorial, it’s cute.
