The dining room table is one of the first things you see when you walk in the door.

I like to keep things simple and neutral. To transition the table from fall, to Christmas, to everyday, I just swap out the napkins, foliage, and candles. You can see the subtle changes from our Fall Dining Room Table.

My friend Molly from Molly Quinn Interiors came to stay with me one weekend and helped me decorate the living room. Love the pieces she picked out, especially this artwork by Helen Bolin.

    Wow, what a wonderful collection! I wish I could just take a visiting tour throuh these houses, it woul’d be rewarding enough. Thanks.

  2. Lucinda Widmark

    Really like your kitchen table Lighting Fixture…. Who makes it or where did you purchase?  Thank you so much!

  3. Catharine Merritt Walters

    Hi Amanda. We’re trying to mount skis that look like yours- meaning not solid wood- and we wonder how you did it!  Tips, please? 

  4. michelle

    i’m LOVING that antler monogram wreath. I know you listed where you go it, but that doesn’t seem right as it take me to an outfitter store! Was that an error?

    1. Amanda

      That’s where I got it! They are a local outdoor clothing boutique with a home section. Although I got it over a year ago, so I don’t know if they still have them. I bet Etsy would have something similar!

  5. Brittany aka Pretty Handy Girl

    I am in love with all your chandeliers!!! I know that’s not part of the decorating, but if you ever want to get rid of them, I’m your buyer! ;-) Love that tall tree (a little jealous of your ceiling height) and the vintage sleigh. And that artwork is beautiful. Thanks for sharing your home!

  6. Stephanie Maberry

    Love your house especially the extreme detailing you put in the dining room table!
    Thank you for sharing your home with us!
    Have a joyous Holiday Season!

  7. Anele @ Success Along the Weigh

    Absolutely gorgeous, as usual.

    I have vintage skis up as well. I like your configuration better than mine, how did you secure those to the wall/get them to stay in the “tight X” formation?

  8. laura

    Beautiful home & job well done. So tasteful and every corner done without looking messy and cluttered! The tree is amazing and loving your natural color scheme at home. Looks like a very cozy Christmas!xo

  9. Dana@chocolateandsunshine

    Beautiful home and Christmas decor. Love the hot cocoa bar. I’ve been seeing them a lot lately, even here in my hometown of St. Louis, but yours is one of the most complete and unique set-ups. Shared.

  10. Kim G.

    In my haste to express my amazement in your cord-free TV (lol), I forgot to say how absolutely stunning your home is, and how much I love it when you post pics of it!! It looks beautiful!

  11. Dannii @ Hungry Healthy Happy

    Your house is beautiful. I wish I had tall ceilings like that for a huge tree. Although it would just be something bigger for the cats to climb haha.

    1. Amanda

      Thank you, Christine! I bought them already put together and ready for hanging, but they are screwed together in the middle from the back and there is a piece of hardware on the back (looks like this) for hanging. Hope this helps! :)

  12. Beth C.

    Love home tours! Your home looks beautiful for the holidays! I know it’s not part of the holiday decor, but I just love your travel gallery wall upstairs! What a great idea! i also love the white montage photo frame on the staircase wall! I have been looking for a white photo montage frame and they are so hard to find! I can find them in black and brown everywhere, but not the white! Merry Christmas to you all!

  13. Diane Eck

    Amanda, I have been following your blog almost from the beginning…and you never cease to amaze me!!! You have to be high energy and super organized! Everything is beautiful, and it is especially cool to watch your transformation over the years! Merry Christmas to you, Kevin, Miley and Howie!! Diane

  14. Kim G.

    I’m dying to know how you don’t have a bunch of cords hanging down from your TV??? I HATE the look of cords and would love to not be able to see mine!

    1. Kevin

      There is an electrical outlet behind the TV that it is plugged into, and then the TV’s HDMI cable is run through the wall to a media closet on the other side of the living room where the other equipment is.

  15. Lori Allberry

    Wow. Just WOW. There is so much to say, but I can’t find the words. In LUUUUUURVE with your house! <3

    Merry Christmas sweet girl!
    XOXOXO

    Lori

  16. Nancy McAleer

    Love your house and all of the Christmas-y details! Where did you buy your glass cabinets in the living room and your breakfast nook?

  17. Tessa / Bramble & Thorn

    Your house is looking super cute, I love the detail you’ve put into the dining table! And the Christmas tree is so pretty!
