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!

Christmas Family Room at Bluestone Hill


I have been so excited to decorate for Christmas, since this is our first time doing so here at Bluestone Hill. Last year, we moved the week before Christmas and all we did for decorating was set up a tiny fake tree that the girls covered in blindingly bright ornaments and our pretty, big farm stand tree which fell over not once, but twice, smashing at least half of my ornaments. And causing me to go into fits of laughter that did not amuse the husband that ended up cleaning up the whole mess. To his credit, he did predict the tree was going to fall over and I did say "no, no, it's fine, don't worry." And then it fell over. And I laughed. And he huffed and got out the dustpan and vacuum. And when I had him just about convinced that he was going to laugh about it later, it fell over again and woke up our older daughter and we pretty much hit repeat except there was also a semi-frightened daughter dazed in her bed in the next room.


So this year, I have been excited to get into decorating (...and Josh has been researching the best tree stands...) ;) and the fact that Everly seems to have some interest in the holiday decor this year makes it all the more special. She helps me find the best branches outside to cut and we make a game of it and look for forest fairies while we clip. She would tell you that the reason we haven't seen any yet is because we are too tall and they are scared of us.


I have to say, I left the clippings in the sled on the girls' table and am utterly shocked that Lucie hasn't torn it apart. She just sets her pretend kitchen food on the table around it and ignores it. If you knew her, you would be shocked, too. She walks into the playroom in the morning and in twenty seconds it looks like a tornado passed through. Everly does like to pull little needles off and put them in her mixing bowl and pretend to cook them. However, all in all, I've been surprised by how little they've messed with the Christmas decorations. I thought the presents in the opposite corner would be unwrapped in a day.




This tree is from my Uncle's farm stand, where we get our big tree every year. I can't wait to pick one out this year with the girls! I have a feeling Everly is going to want the biggest one there.






This rocking chair belonged to Josh when he was little, and the shoes sitting on it belonged to my grandfather's first cousin.
