Our Christmas Tour 2019- Come On In!

Our Christmas Tour 2019- Come On In!- design addict mom
As promised,  I am sharing a tour of most of our home decked out for Christmas.  Here's Cheyenne giving you a warm sparkly welcome. This year, I delved into my Christmas stash and tried to find new ways to reuse what I already had. The wreaths on the front door are a number of years old too and were purchased at AC Moore. For the Christmas tree in the living room(which btw is about 5 years old), i brought the gold ornaments to the front as I wanted the gold to be highlighted in the decor this year.  I placed a small tree in Cheyenne's nursery and i chose to highlight some of the colors from her fab wallpaper with the use of the ornaments. I already had all the ornaments that were used on the trees.  Ok, enough with the chatter, let's start the tour. There are quite a number of pics so brace yourselves! :-)

And now we're in the living room. This year, I braved it and placed breakable ornaments on the tree. Last year,  i did a baby friendly version because you know Ms. Cheyenne gets into everything! I placed the really delicate ornaments at the top and used some smash proof ones at the bottom and thankfully those are the ones she has reached for so far.

The Bedroom

Last year, I placed a Christmas tree in the bedroom and I really enjoyed having one in here.  So I did it again this year! :-)That glow in the evenings is so beautiful! Cheyenne spends a lot of time in here so I opted for the plush ornaments plus i love the whimsical element they add. I also added some of my pom pom trims and homemade garlands for color overload.

A Bold and Decadent Christmas Tour

A Bold and Decadent Christmas Tour- design addict mom
This is my kind of Christmas decor; bold and colorful. This home was designed by Julia Thompson of Frank Interiors and  I spotted on Living Etc which is one of my favorite magazine/resource for decor inspiration, especially at Christmas time! This absolutely stunning home is a Victorian masterpiece and is located in South London. Let the drool fest begin...

I love the use of the pampas grass on the mantel. It reminds me of that time I spray painted pampas grass for our guest bedroom.

Creating A Healthier Home with Lifecore Floors

Creating A Healthier Home with Lifecore Floors- design addict mom

Imagine having environmentally friendly hardwood floors in your home that is low VOC? Lifecore Floors was one of my amazing sponsors for this recent One Room Challenge and I remember how excited I was to learn that the Lifecore floors- Anew Gentling that I chose for my One Room Challenge closet makeover was a green product and additionally such a beauty!  Volatile organic compounds(VOC) are emitted into your home and can have an adverse effect on your indoor air quality, your family health and be an irritant to those with allergies and asthma. Lifecore Floors are third party tested, and exceed the strictest chemical emission limits for VOC.

Having a toddler who loves to play on the floor, I find it comforting that when she is in the closet(which is quite often), she is being exposed to a healthy environment. LIFECORE’s innovative, ZERO-ADD® technology allows the production of flooring that has among the lowest levels of formaldehyde on the market, without affecting the performance or durability of the product.
