It’s Day 4 of the 12 Days of Christmas! Welcome back, everyone.

This is sort of a special day since it’s my Holiday Home Tour! It’s always a fun post to create because I get to walk you through my home and show you what I’ve done to deck it out for Christmas.

Holiday Home Tour | inspiredbycharm.com #IBCholiday

For this particular tour, I’m joining up with The White Buffalo Stylin’ Co.’s Blogger Stylin’ Home Tours. Today marks the final day of this tour. If you’d like, you can click here to start from the beginning to see all of the bloggers’ homes. There are over 30 bloggers participating! The previous stop on the tour was the uber-talented Craftberry Bush. If you’re joining from there, welcome! If you missed her post, be sure to click back and check it out here.

Per usual, I’m going to let the pictures do most of the talking and chime in a bit here and there. Let’s go!

Yesterday I shared my tutorial for the wood stockings on my mantel, so let’s start in the living room.

This year I decided to limit my colors in each space of my home. In the living room I’m using teal, green, and black.

I also love decorating with glass ornaments. HomeGoods is one of my go-to places for finding great ornaments at the best prices. These bottle brush trees from Target couldn’t have worked out better for this space.

If you’ve been on any of my other home tours, you’ll notice I picked up new poufs. I wanted to pull some of the yellow out of this room and add a bit of cozy texture for the winter. I also found some new pillows at HomeGoods.

And yes, my marshmallow wreath lives on. I had to replace a few marshmallows, but other than that, it’s in great shape. It’s still one of my favorite things.

Over in the office, red and pink were my colors of choice. They nicely matched my filing cabinets.

You’ll also notice a big change in this space. I swapped out my workbench for a small table. I’ll talk more about my decision in another post, but I’m loving the change. (I do have different chairs coming for this table, however, they were delayed, so I’m making do for now. Ha! A blogger’s gotta do what a blogger’s gotta do.)

I “need” to have more than one tree in my house, so I dressed this one up with with ornaments in a gradient from red to pink.

Near my pink dresser is the new Elf print from Lindsay Letters. You all know Lindsay, right? She has the best prints, canvas artwork, and other fun accessories! She’s the bomb. I actually have a few more of her pieces upstairs. I’ll be showing you those next week.

In the foyer, I have Christmas tree #3. This one’s real, and I decorated it with these tiny glass balls in every color. Then, I added on some falling cat ornaments because they may be the best ornaments ever. Also, who doesn’t want cats falling from their tree?

Oh, I should also mention that I painted my entryway. Again! I wasn’t feeling the gray so it had to go. More on that in a later post.

And there’s another Elf print! Son of a nutcracker!

Some DIY Cookie Cutter Wreaths dress up my sliding barn doors.

They were so fun and easy to create. You can learn how to make them here. I think they would make such a cute gift. Don’t you?

You already had a sneak peek in my dining room earlier this week when I shared my Gold and Green Tree. (You can see more of this tree here.) Now it’s time for a closer look.

I continued the gold and green color scheme throughout the space.

Those chairs at the end of my table (a steal from HomeGoods a few years ago.) Look great next to the tree topped with a fur pillow. (Another HomeGoods find!)

I put together a super simple centerpiece using a variety of trees. Lots of bottle brush trees, plus, one of my favorite Christmas crafts – the colorful wooden trees I created a few years back.

Last, but not least, is the kitchen. I haven’t done too much in this space, yet. A few little touches here and there certainly do make it feel more festive.

As I mentioned, I’ll give you a quick look around upstairs sometime next week. There are lots of fun new things to show you up there.

  • cassie @ primitive & proper at

    michael, this is such a happy tour! i love it! the dining room is so festive and i love how the colors play with the walls. my favorite by far is the living room and that amazing mantle! i am in love! i actually have a bunch of vintage bottle brush trees on my mantle and i planned to bleach them and fade them and dye them…. so they would be minty and aqua and pretty. well wouldn’t you know that vintage bottle brush doesn’t bleach very well. i soaked and waited and nothing happened! so i will just soak in the beauty of yours! πŸ™‚

    • Michael Wurm, Jr. at

      Yeah, I love that server. I BELIEVE it’s on sale right now – so it’s a good time to get it. It’s linked up in the “Shop this Post” slider above.

  • Tanya at

    Hey Michael -Love the marshmallow wreath! Did you do a DIY post on that? I did a search and couldn’t find it. I might need to make one of those for my kitchen this year! Thank you.

    • Michael Wurm, Jr. at

      Tanya,

      I didn’t. That was a late night project. You need a white foam wreath from, toothpicks, and marshmallows. Insert the toothpicks, then the marshmallows. That’s about it. I did use some hot glue as some of the marshmallows didn’t want to stick. It’s about three years old now. Each year I have to replace a few marshmallows. I can’t believe how well it’s held up. Hope that helps.

      xo Michael

      • Tanya at

        Thanks Michael! Late night projects are the best. πŸ™‚ BTW, I still miss your gift shop! Merry Christmas!

  • R. PYPER at

    You have no idea how many holiday home tours I’ve read this season, but yours is by far my favorite. So fresh and clean and still festive and “decorated”! Kudos.

  • Terri at

    Love everything about your home tour! I do want to tell you a little funny about the “Noel” letters. We had a set that looked exactly like yours in our home while growing up. My grandparents always came for Christmas Dinner and after the left, the letters were always changed to read “Leon”. My jokester Grandpa! Good memories! Thank you for sharing your beautiful home tour.

  • Cora at

    I’m moving in! Love it!!

You should be so very proud of all of your projects over the last 2 weeks – I have enjoyed every single one – but man, this holiday home tour is just perfection.
