In our town there are a couple of neighborhoods that have an annual Holiday Housewalk where you purchase tickets and are able to go on in and snoop. They are mostly in the upscale areas or where historic homes are more prevalent and I’m not going to lie…I’ve never been! I think that they are a great idea though because ticket profits go to charity, so you get to see pretty and make a difference.
Today I’m sharing my own holiday housewalk inspired by blush pink and I hope that you enjoy!
Soft pastel shades are so easy and pleasing to the eye. When your walls are painted white (Benjamin Moore White Dove) you can go seasonally with accent colors in any tones that work in your world.
Easy choice for me with blush pink, white, gold and soft greys with rustic natural elements in the mix.
Christmas Home Tour Holiday Housewalk – Blush
French country is always prevalent and this year I shared HOW TO CREATE A BEAUTIFUL FRENCH COUNTRY CHRISTMAS in my dining room, and this is an extension of that look. A home’s flows begins when you walk into the front door, so unless you are are purposefully doing a variety of themes for whimsy….I would keep with similar tones.
Last Christmas I used this tree from TREE CLASSICS in my dining room, but I’ve been know to switch things up and it just rolled it’s way into my living room for Christmas 2017. Literally…this tree is on a rolling stand and I love that! This prelit-Christmas tree I embellished with gold, blush, champagne and glittered shatterproof ornaments…along with glittered pinecones, vintage pink silk poinsettias, vintage garland and French silk ribbon that I painted by hand.
Faux everything is my way to go this Christmas because it’s stress free to set up early and more green in the long run without having to toss away live greens when the holidays are over. I love THIS WREATH but it needed something more, so again I added some silk ribbon that I painted by hand with watered down paint (tutorial coming soon).
Faux fur stockings are hung on the mantel. I used some old bed posts from a four-poster bed that we used to have, cut them off the top and set them on top of the small nails holding the stockings in place. The mantel greenery is faux as well and since I had this greenery last year that you can see in THIS POST, it took minutes to set into place. Ahhhh, the joys of faux! I’m so glad that my husband is finally on board with that.
Simple VINTAGE TOUCHES for CHRISTMAS (post from a few years back) are something thoughtful and make you stand out from everyone else. Patina on a vintage Florentine tray mixes seamlessly with new gold Christmas balls because the tones are similar. Love red? Mix old with new and it will all go together well. Just keep your tones similar and do what you like in YOUR home for the holidays.
Gold and blush wrapped gifts are perfect to put under the tree, and since we open gifts right here every year I gently save the bags and boxes when I can. These are gorgeous though…I’ve linked them below.
The rug is one of my favorites and I love the texture as well as the color that wears well with 3 doggos running around. Metallic mix along with blush, grey and white is definitely my favorite look this year for Christmas and I can’t wait to share how it looks at night in another upcoming post. A little bit glammed up and yet elegant enough to be quiet.
I recently read on another large decorating blog about “millennial pink” being the big thing with that generation. In my opinion it has been around forever and just comes and goes in cycles. The so called thirty year cycle in design has become shorter and lost it’s attention span, just like everything else.
Everything just looks so festive and pretty at this time of year and it’s my personal favorite. How about you? I’m sharing a Christmas tablescape this week with a group of blog friends as well as some other holiday posts I think you’ll love! Please come back often, subscribe and pin for future reference.
