Christmas Blogger Stylin’ Home Tours: Anthro Christmas Lodge

BSHT-Christmas-Graphic-copy

The day is finally here.

5 days, 53 bloggers, 53 amazing homes.  I am so honored to be kicking off this series and have such talented ladies on board.  Sit back with a cup of your favorite Christmassy brew and get ready for some serious inspiration and Christmas cheer.

***

For my tour, I was going for a very certain style: Anthro Christmas Lodge.  Remember my inspiration?  And that is exactly what I went for with style.  Not to follow rules or limit myself, but because that is a style I truly love.

There were six things I really sought to bring in to carry out this style.

Yes, this post should’ve come with a warning: THIS DECOR NOT FOR THE FAINT OF HEART.  Eclectic is my thing, after all.  I promise, it worked out.  At least…I think so.

But I am warning you up front…this is VERY picture-heavy.  I’m bad about narrowing down…so, if you need to take a little cookie and coffee break in the middle, don’t worry.  I don’t judge.

Right inside the door, you see our mantel and lounge area.

I used colored candles for a little pop.

I also made a wood bead garland, added a little gold for some glitz, updated our burlap stockings with some personality, and gave Mr. Antler a little disco.

Our tree even got a disco ball topper.  This was a 12″ disco ball ornament from Hobby Lobby that my husband rigged up as a tree topper.

 I made some DIY cinnamon and wood bead garland

…added some tinsel and DIY ornaments

…and used a colorful, woven blanket as the tree skirt.

Our DIY Advent calendar and nativity is another favorite.

And what would a Christmas tour be without a little Christmas tablescape action?

I layered a shaw made by my great-grandmother on top of some plaid.  The dishes and glasses are vintage.  The napkins are from the shop we had last year and I love them!

And a simple centerpiece of candles, greenery, and of course, disco balls seemed to fit.

And one of my favorite things in the house is the little Christmas tree forest on top of the dining room hutch.

The kitchen needed a little Christmas love too, naturally.

I’m loving this fresh rosemary tree on our island.

And we are SERIOUSLY enjoying our new coffee and baking station.

And we’re almost done…hang in there….here is our new mudroom gussied up for Christmas and it’s demanding to be the finale of this here tour.  I know I haven’t shared the details on this one yet, but I will later this week.

I’m really in love with the Christmas art.  The “Happy Holidays” is from a thrift store and the other is a print I framed.

Whew.  I know.  You’ve refilled your coffee cup three times and the third one is now cold.

But thank you for coming to tour our Christmas home.

And it seems fitting to finish with a little XOXO…

    You are so darn stylish lady! Love it! Your tour is so unique and definitely Anthro!
    Love your tree and your gorgeous homemade ornaments. And of course that topper is so me!

      Thank you, Julia! You are so sweet :) I was going for unique and anthro, so your comment made my day! Can’t wait to see yours! I know it will be awesome :)

      Thank you, Jesse! It means the world to hear that. I love my style now, but I know it’s a bit out there for some, so every time I do something like this, I panic. I’m like, “Crap, no one else will love this, but me.” But even if that was the case, I guess that’d be okay if our family loves it. That’s why we decorate, after all :)

    Looks beautiful Lindsay! It suits your style perfectly and I love the name you came up with for it. I’m loving all the plaid too! This time of year I go crazy for plaid and I just realized I don’t have any in my house, that’s going to have to change after reading this :)

  3. says

    no corner left untouched, and they are all gorgeous. i particularly love your table, and all the gorgeous plaid layers. i love that you chose a theme and went all out!

  4. says

    Beautiful and inspiring as always! I love your Anthro-Christmas Lodge inspired style – so much beauty at every turn. Love the wood disc chargers, the antlers, the mix of textures and glam. Thanks for hosting this awesome event, Lindsay! And for the invitation to share my home too! ;)

  5. says

    Amazing, Lindsay! I really love your mantle with the different colored candles and the dining space. Thank you so much for putting this all together! I know it was a ton of work, and it looks like you’ve been super busy at home too! :)

    Have a great week!

  6. says

    LOVE IT ALL. your home blows me away! i love the tree and its skirt (i did a blanket skirt, too)…. love the topper! and your mantle- perfection! seriously i want to come over and hang out in your cozy home!

  7. Joycelyn Tongate says

    Your home is beautifully done for Christmas! I love the tree slice chargers on your table! Did you make them yourself? I may have to get my husband to get out his saw! Christmas blessings to you!

  8. says

    You do such an amazing job of breaking down an individual style and then rebuilding it with what you have and custom pieces! I wish I could spend the rest of the holiday season in your house! Is that weird? You nailed it, it looks beautiful!

  9. says

    Lindsay, I love it all!! I totally didn’t need a cookie and coffee although not I want a cookie LOL. Thank you so much for including me on this fabulous Christmas tour. I’m sharing this on my FB page today ;)
    Hugs,
    Jamie @ somuchbetterwithage.com

    Funny! Just saw your house on YHL, then someone told me I would love your style and here I am, twice in one morning. Gorgeous. I love everything…please give me some of your rug luck because right now we just have wood floors- which is WAY better then the dusty rose 20 year old nasty carpet we just tore out!!

  11. says

    Hi Lindsay,

    Love your tour, I’m enjoying my tea during it ;-) I was loving all those disco balls and the cinnamon garland on the tree, so cute and I bet it smells nice!

    So I have to ask, where did you get the little gold lettering? Did you make it?

    Hope you have a wonderful holiday season!

  12. Marianne W says

    I LOVE your style! I just stumbled across your blog and so glad I did. I love seeing homes with so much individual character and not just the latest trends. Your home looks comfy and full of personality. Your mix of textiles is gorgeous and I hope to have your luck for scoring thrifted rugs, love them all!
