Welcome to our Country Living Christmas Home Tour
Hello! Are your ready for Christmas? Today I’m joining the Cherished Christmas Home Tours hosted by my sweet friend Ashley from Cherished Bliss and Country Living. This tour is going on all week! I’ve had so much fun wandering around all my blogger friends homes!
If you’re stopping by from Danielle’s, Finding Silver Pennies, welcome! I’m so glad you’re here. If not, be sure to pop over there!
Normally I stick with one color scheme but this year I got a little cray-cray. Our main living areas are decorated in shades of blue with sparkles of silver, gold and pewter. Blue was a natural color choice since most of the decor and some of the walls are painted blue in these spaces.
The oil rubbed bronze deer on the left and right are yard sale finds and even though they are not the same, they created the symmetry that I wanted. You don’t have to be matchy – matchy unless it would drive you crazy! The back of the bookcases and dining room are painted SW Quietude and the walls of living room are SW Comfort Gray. One of my favorite colors, it looks different throughout the day. To bring more of the aqua on the the mantel, I painted birch trees on wood, DIY instructions coming soon!
Here’s a view from the stairs. My free sofa and wing back chairs fit perfectly in this space. We moved last fall and I was concerned that my furniture wouldn’t fit, but for the most part every piece has worked out. You get a better view of all the blue.
A close-up of the birch trees. You could easily paint them on canvas.
Murphy is so funny, she is the official Refresh Restyle model. She follows me around when I’m taking photos, I don’t have to pose her or pay her, except with kisses and treats!

Dining Room with Minimal Natural Christmas Decor
Paperwhites in silver cups make the perfect gift for dinner guests.
Ok, here’s where I switched color gears – in the bedrooms!
Master Bedroom and Guest Room
I added red accents to our gray bedroom. The red flannel sheets are a first for us! We have really been missing out, who knew flannel sheets were so awesome? The Very Merry banner is from our mantel last year. It only takes a few items to bring the Christmas spirit in to any space!
The addition of simple wreaths hung from velvet ribbons put the final touch on the bedroom decor. (My model is laying down on the job!)
Now if it would only get cold in Georgia so I could snuggle down in this cozy flannel!
For the guest room I added more red and all things cozy and soft. I channeled my inner Santa with the red velvet pillow and the warm and fuzzy comforter 😉
Instead of chocolates on the pillow for guest, I placed these cookie poppers on the nightstands.
Red velvet stockings hung by the bed, waiting for tiny gifts.
That’s all folks…

I finally found your birch tree paintings-TERRIFIC!!’
Can you tell me about the rug in the Blue Christmas living room?
What a stunning home. Look forward to see what you produce in your new home after the feat of moving in….
Thanks so much Michelle!
It is red-ily blue-tiful. Merry Merry Christmas.
Hi, I love your house and you have a real eye for it. I was wondering what shade of grey you have on fireplace? It’s so pretty!
Loved the and your style. Where to you get the plaid throw in the living room?
I found it at HomeGoods. Thank you!
Your home is absolutely gorgeous. I have to say I feel I’ve found a kindred decor spirit in you because I have the same winter pillow, I have two birch tree trunk pictures hanging over our sofa (mine are store bought and not nearly as creative or pretty as yours) and our first dog’s name was Murphy! I shall return to your lovely blog many times in the future.
Debbie, your home looks so sparkly and fabulous for the holiday! I love all the blue tones that keep the feel so cool for the holidays! Gorgeous, tour!
It’s perfect, Debbie! I love the blues in the great room but I also love the classic reds in the bedrooms. Those wingback chairs are fabulous!!
Oh, you are a girl after my own heart with all the stunning blue!! I love it Debbie- and the bedrooms and all the crisp red. Fantastic tour!!
This home is gorgeous! It puts our measly little decorating to shame.
Your nontraditional color scheme is really beautiful and you pulled it all together so nicely. I’m totally loving the deer head!
Yay for blues, reds. grays and furry friends!! You have such a lovely home, friend!! Wishing you a very Merry Christmas! Hugs.
Your home is just beautiful and welcoming Debbie. 🙂 I love the living room!!! <3
So very, very beautiful Debbie!!!!…Just love the color scheme and all of the gorgeous details….Still working on mine…a bit behind … and Happy Birthday!!!!
LOVE it!!! I love your teal tree, I got a little crazy with color too, so I love seeing your tour. 🙂
Your home is gorgeous! I LOVE all the blue but also love the neutral and green in your dining room. I love the idea of paper white favors. The red in the bedrooms looks so great with your gray. So beautiful. Wishing you a very Merry Christmas!
Best of both worlds! How fun to get to use aqua AND red.
My room looks very comfy 🙂
And Murphy is the best helper 😉
Happy Holidays my friend!!
You make aqua look right at home on that beautiful Christmas tree, Debbie! And I love, love, love the classic reds in your bedrooms. Beautiful job!!
Thank you so much Kristin!
Oh what a wonderful home you have! I’m a sucker for gray, and that bedroom is totally calling my name! Can I come visit?! 🙂 I love those magnolia leaves too, those are some of my fav!
Taryn, I would love for you to come visit! I will pick you up at the Atlanta airport any time!! Have a great day!
Debbie I love your birch tree paintings! So smart and you did such a good job! Love your wing chair too…. But I think my fav is your master bedroom with those flannel sheets! So so pretty!
Thank you so much Rachel! We are loving those Target flannel sheets! Have a great day!
Good Morning! Beauiful tour! We just got three inches of snow, and I thought it would lovely surrounding your house instead of mine. Luckily I spent yesterday picking up the last of the Fall decorations and pumpkins, etc. and locking up the green house, tarping the churchpew, etc. So much for decorating outside…you have inspired me to start inside! Thanks for the great tour, Sandi
Oh yes Sandi, I need so snow around my house! The decor outside is lacking and snow would be great! Thank you so much!
You have such a beautiful home! I love all the colors and think it’s great that you switched color direction for the bedroom! I always think you need at least some red for Christmas. Thanks for the tour!
Thanks so much Shelley! Have a great day!
