Holiday Home Tour

December 14, 2018 Rosie Rose Chic 17 Comments



 Welcome to my first blog post! I'm so excited to have finally started my blog. This is something I've been wanting to do for a long time, and what better way to start it off than a holiday tour?

First, let me start off by telling you a little bit about myself and my home. My name is Amanda, and I have always had a passion for decorating. I remember rearranging my bedroom as a child almost monthly, even moving the furniture by myself, which now that I think back, might have been a safety hazard. Oops!! Good thing nothing bad happened. Moving on, I have lived in many homes since then and have continued to pursue my passion for decorating, which has grown with each new home I've lived in. I didn't go to school for interior design, it's something that's just in me. Seeing my visions come to life, right before my eyes makes me so happy, it's like my therapy.

In 2013 my husband Sean and I went searching for our forever home, a place where we could raise our two children Christian and Mia. Originally we lived in Massachusetts, but decided we would try looking in New Hampshire, and after a few months we found our home. A Victorian style built in 1998, it was love at first sight for me, we just knew it was the one as soon as we saw it. We have lived in our home for 5 1/2 years now, and just love it. We have added to our family since then, adopting our golden retriever Lily, our cat Molly, and our 21 chickens which do all have names, but I will spare you from all of them.

I honestly couldn't be happier to be able to share my a passion and home with all of you. So now that I've rambled on about myself, lets get to what you all came here for.  My Holiday Home Tour, ENJOY!



My sitting room is one of my favorite places in my home. I love relaxing in there with a cup of tea in hand, or listening to my son play the piano. I wanted the decor to make me smile, and the little pink touches do just that.




       The bowl of ornaments and crown added the perfect touch to my coffee table.




 The faux mantel is my favorite piece in the room and what I love to decorate the most. I wanted it to have a soft romantic feel.

My dining room has the most beautiful light coming through the windows in the morning, it's such a welcoming feeling. I used white and warm tones to make my decor in here feel the same way. 
                       






 The cascading greenery and roses give a soft, romantic feel to my tablescape.




The winter scene plates give the setting a cozy winter feel, and set the tone for the whole room. 




I added a quaint wrapping station, I think its adorable and it gives me all the Christmas feels.



This faux mantel is one of my favorites pieces in here, the reflection of the chandelier and tree give it a magical feel. I repeated the cascading greenery and white roses to complete the overall look of the room.

Our Family room is the hub of the home. We spend most of our time in here, so I wanted to keep the decor simple, and our dog lily just had to show off her favorite spot.


I love the simpleness of the vignette, white houses, and bottle brush trees, they are some of my favorite items to display.

Lets head upstairs to my daughter's Christmas-themed bedroom, I wanted to keep her room simple and sweet, and bring in touches of white, blue and pink. 



I love how this vignette turned out, it reminds me of a little Christmas village. It's so sweet and girly and my daughter loves it.


I hung the wreath on her antique bed and added long blue and white lace ribbon to give it a whimsical look.



  This sweet snowflake pillow adds a winter cozy feel.


Of course, you can't forget to leave milk and cookies for Santa.

Last stop on the tour is my master bedroom. I wanted a winter wonderland feel in here, where I can just cuddle up in bed with a cup of coffee and stay warm and cozy watching Christmas movies all day.




I've always wanted a white Christmas tree and I'm so glad I got one this year. I just love the soft airy look. 



My vanity is so special to me, it was a surprise gift from my husband Sean for our first wedding anniversary. In the frame is our wedding photo, the makeup mirror was my grandmothers and I found the matching comb and brush set at an antique store. I added a little touch a Christmas and I just love the reflection. 




 The round sitting nook with table is the perfect spot for brunch, I put together this whimsical tablescape for my family to enjoy on Christmas day.



 Most of the items I picked up at Savers, the little light up houses and church, green trimmed plates, cloth napkins and ribbon, with some of my own pieces I already had. It all came together for under twenty dollars.


My Christmas bedroom came together just how I envisioned.



That concludes my very first Blog Post and Holiday Home Tour, I appreciate you stopping by and hope you enjoyed it.  I look forward to sharing a lot more with you.  Have a Wonderful Holiday. 
                                                

xoxo Amanda
