Silver, Gold & Gray Christmas Living Room, Merry & Bright Holiday Home Tour, Part 1

Hello, there!

If you are stopping by from Love Your Abode, welcome and thank you for stopping by!

Welcome to part one of the Merry & Bright Holiday Home Tour. If this is your first time here let me introduce myself.  I'm Kate and I'm an Interior Decorator, blogger, and boy mom.  I host a blog party every Friday called Flaunt it Friday. If you blog I'd love to have you stop by and link up with me every week.

Today I am sharing my home office and part of my living room decor.  My living room is my "fancy room" with my "fancy tree" according to my boys.  The rest of my house is a little bit more modern farmhouse. My home office is my "wild" room.  It doesn't really go with the rest of my house as it is much bolder.  I am the only girl in my family so I decided to use a lot of pink, gold, black and white and whatever my little heart desired. :)

Let's start with my fancy room...

My colors are silver and gold and gray.

I got these lovely bauble ornaments from They are inexpensive and versatile. Put them in a jar, on your tree, or hang them from your chandelier are just a few options.

I got a set of these cute glass dome ornaments from them as well. The inside s are wood carvings, so cute and unique!

I have been hanging this on my great-grandma's cabinet that sits in my living room for the past several years.  I love how real this greenery looks.

And, the customary Christmas tree night shot.

And, if you follow my blog for any amount of time you will find out I have a thing for pillows...

Speaking of pillows, let's move on to my home office... my champagne colored tinsel tree adds the perfect amount of twinkle to a room filled with bold colors.  And, it needs no ornaments!

I got these fabulous pillows from SmithHonig.  Look at this fuschia luxurious plush velvet pillow with these amazing tassels. 

I am in love with these cute and funky tassels!  Plus, they are removable so I can hook them to something else if I really want to.

I also chose this SmithHonig African Paint Pillow, it goes great with the velvet pillow.

I like to add a little flocked tree to my desk, too.

My cute gold side table (similar here) gets a little touch of Christmas too.

If you don't have up all of your Christmas decor yet don't feel bad, I don't either! I am about two-thirds done.  I like to put my decor up a little early as I really like to enjoy it!   

Every Wednesday for the next three weeks we will be sharing more of our Christmas decor on the Merry and Bright Holiday Home Tour.  When you come back you'll get to see my kitchen and family room, these rooms have a modern farmhouse look so will be a little different than what you see here today.  I hope you'll join me and all of my friends!  

Next on the tour, head over to see Melanie's lovely decor at Rover at Home.
