Holiday Housewalk 2020 Our Christmas Home Tour
Welcome to our 2020 Christmas Home Tour, wow time really flew by! I am beyond honored to be a part of Jennifer Rizzo’s Holiday house walk and this year we are celebrating 10 years! Each day this week bloggers have opened their doors and invited you inside to tour their beautiful homes, each home is magical and unique in its own way!
I know Christmas might look a little different this year, but I hope that you’re able to focus on the good, find those little things that make you happy and find beauty in the small things. I know, it’s not easy and each day I remind myself that I have my family, our health, a roof over our heads and a warm meal on the table.
I am now able to see my mom (It had been a very long 6 months) because of some unfortunate circumstances but I am grateful I can now be with her as she transitions into another stage of life. This year, more than ever, I am so thankful for my family and feel the blessings that surround me on a daily basis.
So with all of that being said, I am keeping it simple over here this year, You can start here at the beginning if you’re just hopping on to the tour.
If you are stopping by from Tatertots and Jello welcome! I adore Jen’s gorgeous home, she is extremely creative and is such an inspiration, she has such a special way of making everything beautiful and you are going to love her colorful home!
I’m going to switch it up this year and start the tour in the kitchen, why not, it is 2020! This year I added simple touches of greenery for a clean simple look.
Off of our kitchen, we head into the great room. Everything in our home, other than the bedrooms and bathrooms is open. I know it’s not for everyone but we love it. Let’s just pretend that the big TV in the middle of the room doesn’t exist.
I didn’t buy much this year other than the gold bells, wooden garland, and a new tree collar to freshen things up.
I’ll list everything at the end of the post.
I purchased the garland last year after Christmas when it was on sale, it was definitely time for an upgrade, It is faux but incredibly realistic. I simply added some battery operated twinkle lights to give it a glow. I checked the site and sadly they are all sold out this year.
Fresh Eucalyptus placed in a large vase gives the table a winter feel.
I don’t normally decorate the bathrooms for Christmas but thought a touch of greenery would be fun. If you missed the mini remodel, you can find it here.
I love decorating the backyard fireplace with little touches of Christmas and this gorgeous wreath from Lynch Creek Farms is the perfect addition! I fell in love with the King of the Forest wreath the minute I saw it! Make sure to stop by tomorrow as I will be giving one of these wreaths away to one lucky reader!
Abby just sat and gave me the stink eye while I snapped some pictures, I’m surprised the other 2 didn’t join in.
Up Next is Marci Schneider, you are going to love her beautiful home, she is the queen of making your home super cozy on a budget.

Everything looks so beautiful, Kristin! I adore your staircase, and even the greenery on the round mirror. Your fireplace is also breathtaking- such a beautiful home to enjoy the holidays with your sweet family.
When I saw on Facebook that your power was out I was hoping you’d already scheduled your tour on your blog! Hope all is well with you and your family and so glad you get to be with your mom again! I’m glad you added a little Christmas greenery to your bathroom – love the wall in there! Your great room and kitchen always look amazing! Beautiful tour!
Love all your pretty Christmas touches! The greenery is so fresh and festive. Merry Christmas!
Your house is beautiful! I love the touch of greenery and your garland on your staircase is so pretty. Your backyard space is absolutely amazing. I love the wreath. You are incredibly talented. Thank you for being part of the Holiday Housewalk 2020!
Aw, I’m so glad you can see your mom again. This year has taught me to appreciate so much. I love your simple home tour – the greenery in the kitchen is perfect and love the touch of Christmas in the bathroom. It all looks so pretty. Wishing you a Merry Christmas! xx
Kristin, Everything looks so beautiful! My favorite is the greenery in your freshly made over bathroom! And I want one of those cinnamon buns! I’m so happy you got to see your mom recently…hopefully things will settle down soon for all of us. Thank you for being such a wonderful friend over the years! Tell Ray & the boys that all the Fiato’s say hello & Marry Christmas XO
Kristin! I love your open and inviting home and your giant jingle bells, garland over the bathroom mirror and little wood houses! Wishing you and your family a very Merry Christmas and I am so glad you are able to see your mom!
Your home looks amazing, my friend! I especially love your hearth and mantel! So inspiring! Pinned!
Thank you Julie, I’m on my way to your home tour!!! xo
So very beautiful, Kristen!
thank you so much Jennifer, I appreciate you stopping by!
I love all of these ideas, your home is so beautiful and cheery! When my kids were younger they always wanted to put up our old, tacky Christmas decorations. Now that most of them are moved out of the house, I can decorate minimally! I think it will make decorating a less overwhelming task. My favorite part of decorating during the holiday season is fluffing up the holiday pillows on the couch, and taking a nap after all of the decorating is complete!
Kristin, Your home is so warm and festive, you really did a beautiful job–but you always have that special touch.
Thank you Leslie, you are so sweet! Merry Christmas xo
I just love the garland you dropped along your staircase. So pretty, Kristin!
Thank you so much Shannon!
Wow, your home is so lovely. Your staircase with the garland is incredible!
Thank you so much Susan
Your home looks beautiful! Your classic garland on the staircase really sets the tone for your whole tour. Love your tree too! Best wishes for a happy and healthy holiday season!
Thank you so much Shelley!
I love all of the beautiful different greenery all over, from the staircase, to mantle and
Bathroom mirror! I love your tree skirt and especially love that you kept things simple so you can focus on what is most important, family! So glad you can see you mom
So beautiful and festive. I love your house, all of it but expecially the kitchen.
Thank you so much Heidi! Merry Christmas to you!
Kristin your house looks amazing and is always a favorite of mine! I love the bells on your staircase and the display on your dining table is adorable!~
