Home Tour ~ I’m dreaming of a white Christmas


Today I’m joining in on the 2012 Virtual Holiday Housewalk party. . .

being hosted by Jennifer Rizzo.


So please, come on in. . .

Shabby Art Boutique hoem tour 3

Although I live in Australia where we celebrate Christmas in the middle of summer . . .

I’m still dreaming of a white Christmas.

Shabby Art Boutique home tour 1

Everything is a little white, shabby and vintage this year. . .

From the master bedroom where cherubs are always present. . .

Vintage book paper was used in many of my decorating projects. . .

Everything was kept simple this year. . . with just a few Christmas touches tucked in here and there.

All except one room.

One room was decorated for the only man-in-the-house.

Yes, that long suffering man-of-the-house who puts up with shabby, vintage and white pretties all year round. . .

likes a little traditional red and green at Christmas.

So he got the TV room. . . his favourite room of the house. . . in traditional colours.

It was still simple with touches of Christmas added to the current decor.

A 3 meter garland strung with lights, illuminates the main lounge room and walkway between rooms.

It feels very festive with all the fairy lights and candles dotted around the house.
