Christmas Back Hall at Bluestone Hill

We kept our Christmas decor in the back hallway pretty simple, because after all, it is a back hallway. ;) But I didn't want to overlook it, because I think it is a hidden gem. It's one of my favorite features of the house. (I have many.) I can't wait until the girls are slightly older and I can leave the door open all the time and rest assured that they won't end up using the loop as a racetrack. Well, I can wait, because they are getting way too old already...someday when the door is permanently open I will look at it and cry. I know this because I sometimes just look at them now and start crying. (I am the cousin that cries at all the weddings. I also cry when my favorite TV character's best friend Anne Perkins deserts her and moves away to Michigan. Streaming tears. It will never be the same, no matter what she says.)

I love this little vintage mirror that I got at an antique store earlier this year:

How the door usually is now:

I love this wreath that Lynch Creek Farms sent:

I found myself raving to my husband about the beauty and freshness of it, and the amazing Christmas aroma that instantly filled our entryway when I opened the box, and realized I'm really 30 years old. In my twenties, I couldn't possibly have gotten so excited about something like a wreath. ;)

This blue and gold gift wrap instantly made me think of Bluestone Hill and Uncle Bob when I saw it at Target. And even though they are actually empty right now, I wrapped all but maybe 2 with the lids and bottoms wrapped separately so that I can actually use them to put gifts in, and can save them for decor next Christmas.

Holiday Housewalk 2016

 Welcome to our stop on the 2016 Holiday Housewalk! You can start the tour over at our lovely host, Jennifer Rizzo's:

And if you are coming over from Stop 10, Welcome! Bre has one of my favorite homes and her decorating always stops me in my tracks, especially at Christmas! I LOVE her gorgeous style! 

First up we have our entryway. We started off with our handmade sign which we make and sell in our shop (in fact, a batch of them will be listed this morning at 10 EST). Underneath that we added some fresh greenery from outside and my favorite nativity set. It is carved wood and had flecks of gold which I just love. Unfortunately the store we purchased it from has now closed and I can't find any markings on it that tell the manufacturer. Then we added our boxwood wreath to the door for the finishing touch in here.

Next up we have our dining room. We actually decorated it a few different ways this holiday season with both Hot Cocoa type set up as well as a more formal dinner type setting as well. The more simple day to to day Christmas look though we have here:

We added some faux cedar wreaths and faux paperwhites all of which we've owned for several years and are from a store that has now closed. And then we added some fresh cut greenery to a stocking we found at HomeGoods.

We added our skis over to this wall. They are one of my favorite Christmas pieces - in fact I used them in two spots this year!

Now onto our family room. We did a full post on it last week so will just share a couple images today:

And now moving on upstairs to our guest bedroom! I will have a more detailed post up in the next week or two with tons more images and a detailed source list but for now here is a little peek:

The plaid deer head was a Target find last year. I don't think they have them anymore. =( 

And here's a little peek at Lola's room. We will have a more detailed post up with more photos and info in the next week or two:

The little polka dot stocking was from Pottery Barn Kids last year all the items on her shelf with baskets are from HomeGoods.  We adore our Beddy's Bedding! Both the girls have it and now my niece does as well. If you use the code DEARLILLIE20 at checkout you can get 20% off your order! 

And now for Lillie's room! We will have a detailed post up soon with lots and lots more images as well we a detailed source list but here are a couple of shots:

And here are a few images from our master bedroom. You can find a detailed post here. 

And we also added a few touches to our master bathroom! The vanity and mirrors are both from Wayfair and we LOVE them!!!!

This year we got some fresh greenery from our sponsor Wayfair! We went with this beautiful, lush 22" wreath made from a fragrant mix of evergreens, pine cones and juniper berries! 

And then we went with two gorgeous garlands to hang over our front door. I think the exact one we went with is out of stock now but Wayfair has lots more to choose from.

We found the snowshoes and sled at antique shops up in New England a few years ago. My mom got me the snowshoes as a gift a couple of Christmases ago and I LOVE them.

And here's a little shot of it at night:

If you are thinking these last few shots looks a little different you are right! We actually just moved but haven't closed on it yet (long story, thanks to a hiccup on the seller's end) but as soon as it's signed on the dotted line we will be sharing all about it! 

If you are looking for paint colors and sources for just about everything shown here just head on over to our "Our Home" page which can be found here

And now for the next stop on the tour, Jen, from The Chronicles of Home

I cannot wait to see her beautiful home all dressed up for the holidays! 

I hope you all have an amazing Tuesday!
