holiday home tour: the living room.

This is the final space in this little "home tour" and I am sure everyone is just beyond thrilled!  Our vacation is coming to a close and I don't even want to think about it and all that that entails... At least we come back to Thanksgiving week am I right? 

Christmas touches are in the kid's bedrooms and the basement of course... even the powder room got a little Christmas flair, but for the tour part this is it. The buck stops here. The living room is the big shebang, the big tree just jam packed full of ornaments and the kid's stockings hung by the chimney with care and all that. It is where we spend the majority of our time and most of the time I'm just staring lovingly at my tree. Matt expects this of me now. The biggest change in this room since last year is of course the color. I was also trying to neutralize an otherwise dark mantle a little this year.... I really don't know how many more years the snowbabies will make an appearance but for this year I'll allow it...
