It’s Day 8 of the 12 Days of Christmas! Welcome back, everyone.

Today is sort of a special day. I’m doing Part One of my Holiday Home Tour. In an ideal world, I’d just have one home tour for Christmas, however, I’m not quite finished decorating. I know, I know. I’m probably the only blogger who didn’t have this task completed weeks ago, but whatcha gonna do? Most of it is finished, Still … my mantel needs to be tweaked, I’ve barely touched the upstairs, no gifts are wrapped, etc. So, as we get closer to Christmas (hopefully in a week or so), I’ll show you around again.

Today, in addition to the 12 Days of Christmas Series, I’m participating in The White Buffalo Styling Co.’s Blogger Stylin’ Home Tours Christmas 2014. Wow. That’s a mouthful, but it should be. Lindsay has put together a truly amazing Holiday Home Tour. It’s a week long and features over 40 bloggers. Talk about inspiration, right?

The White Buffalo Styling Co. started off the tour. (Isn’t Lindsay’s house beautifully festive?) If you’re hopping over from there, a hearty welcome to you. In case you’re new to IBC, be sure to join our mailing list, follow on social media, leave a comment, etc. I’m always excited to have new people tagging along. (Besides, this way you’ll know when I post part two of this tour.)

Now I’m going to be quiet now and show you my Christmas decorating progress. I’ll chime in here and there with links and such. If you have any questions, let me know in the comments. Oh, and you can find all my wall colors here.

Sound good?

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays! I can’t thank you enough for stopping by. Please come back soon. I’ll have wine and cheese and plenty of Christmas cookies.

As you can see I love decorating with glass ornaments during the holidays. My go-to source for new and quality ornaments is HomeGoods. They always have the best selection.

I created a little hot cocoa bar in my dining room. You can get all the details on that and three homemade hot cocoa recipes HERE.

As I mentioned above, my mantel is only halfway finished. I’m waiting for a few items to arrive in the mail. 90% of the things on it are from Target. The gold wreath is from Treetopia.

I swapped out my DIY artwork in the living room for a woven wall hanging. I love the fabulous texture.

This is Tree #2. It’s a flocked tree that I picked up at Walmart. I tried a few different trees in this space, but none of them worked. When I put up this one, I knew I had a winner.

I also decided to put a tree in my bedroom. It’s only partially decorated. Sebastian doesn’t seem to mind.

  • marti at

    Oh how I love your trees!! I really like the “island” in your office, where’s it from?

    • Michael Wurm, Jr. at

      Thanks so much Marti! It’s actually a vintage workbench. I added a woodblock countertop to the top.

      xo Michael

  • Amy at

    I love your style! What is the color on the walls in the room with the tree and mantel? I love the calm minty green – do share! 🙂

  • Linda at

    Your house is decorated beautifully. You have so many pretty and festive things all around. I always wonder where people who have so many decorations for all the holidays store things? I really try to limit myself since i just don’t have a lot of extra space, despite having 3 bdrms and a garage. So thankfully i can enjoy your decor instead!!

    • Michael Wurm, Jr. at

      I totally hear you Linda. There are days I want to cut back too. However, it brings me so much joy. I don’t have many vices – so if having too much holiday decor is one of them, I don’t think that’s half bad. Haha!

      xo Michael

  • Jennifer at

  • Marley Barduhn at

    Hi Michael,

    Love your navy tree! You’ve inspired me to consider a violet, purple, lavender gradient on Treetopia’s Tinkerbell Silver tree. Love that color and with ombre purple, wow.

  • Brenda Nicholson at

    LOVE LOVE LOVE the chandy, your kitchen island, and that lampshade in the living room! It’s all gorgeous!!

  • Nancy Carr at

    Michael, you have a wonderful creative home. Two questions: in one photo you had 7 bottles hanging upside down in a holder of some kind on the wall. What are in those bottles? The other question is about the marshmallow wreath. How did you adhere the marshmallows to the wreath? Thanks for sharing.

    • Michael Wurm, Jr. at

      Nancy –

      You got it. The bottle are wine. Haha. They holder was from Pottery Barn about 8 years ago.

      The marshmallow wreath … it’s a foam form. I used a combination of toothpicks and hot glue. It wasn’t the easiest thing to make. However, I made it last year and it still looks great this year.

      Hope that helps!

      xo Michael

  • Jenna at Boston Chic Party at
