Farmhouse Christmas Family Room, Merry & Bright Holiday Home Tour Part 3

Hello, friends!

Welcome to the final Merry & Bright Holiday Home Tour 2017.

First, a big thank you to SmithHonig and Amara for sponsoring our tour.

I'm excited to share my Farmhouse Christmas Family Room.  This year my "accent color" was buffalo check. Seriously. ;)

I've had my eye on these buffalo check Pottery Barn pillow covers since last Christmas. I got them for a sweet 75% off on Black Friday, what a score!

I also added buffalo check ribbon to the tree that you can see behind the ornament. The hubs and I made this ornament and several like them.  We sold a bunch but I made sure we kept some of our favorites.

These buffalo check curly q's were new this year.  I bought a few and stuck them throughout the tree and used them in my topper. 

My take on Christmas tree toppers... I like to all "Crazy Hair-Do".
I also picked up that buffalo check throw on the chair at Pottery Barn's black Friday sale.  It matches the pillows perfectly and we can always use another throw blanket.

My mantel has the Buffalo Check star and the Merry Christmas sign has a buffalo check background as well.  Sorry for the brightness (or lack there of) in my pics, my room family room doesn't get a great amount of direct natural light in the summer so I struggle to get good pics. 

I love putting greenery, birch logs and lights in my basket on my fireplace hearth.  Surprisingly, this spot did NOT get any Buffalo Check. ;)
When we put up our Christmas decor we have to move our love seat to the other side of the room.  Basically the chair and love seat trade places.  No big deal but here's a shot of how that looks.  My boys love it because it puts a cozy couch right in front of the TV.

That's all for my part of this tour. Before you move on to the next tour please check out
