Eclectic Christmas Family Room

I’m so excited to be invited by Lindsay at The White Buffalo Styling Co. to participate in this year’s Blogger Stylin’ Holiday Home Tours. Her style is so eclectically delicious. I honestly didn’t realize I had agreed to join three holiday home tours this year (oh no! My grandma brain!) It’s been quite the week! You know I don’t mind.

If you’re visiting via sweet Traci at Beneath My Heart, welcome friends! Hard to drag yourself away from her beautiful and cozy home, wasn’t it? 

Today I’m sharing my family room. It’s a bit eclectic and crowded but comfy all the same.

When was the last time you saw a cat tower in a home tour? Never? I know. But keepin’ it real, my friends.

The ruffled tree skirt is a no-sew project from a couple of years ago (tutorial here). I used my turquoise on the tomato cage Christmas tree I made a couple of years ago.

Young Living essential oils are the newest/main way I help boost our immune systems, alleviate a lot of our minor aches, pains, and injuries and promote a healthier lifestyle . Read more about them here. My Young Living essential oils are also my newest business venture and so popular/loved that they’re sponsoring my blog. Thank you, friends! What a blessing! Interested?

Eclectic Guest Bedroom Ideas

When I shared our family room and kitchen in the What’s Your Style Series, one style those rooms (and all rooms in my home) share is “eclectic”.

Visiting from the beautiful bedroom at Shabby Love? Welcome, friends!

When you do what you love, specifically on a small budget; thrift stores, flea markets, estate sales, yard sales and Craigs List become favorite sources for unique, eclectic decor. Our guest bedroom is no exception.

and a mix of old and new.

Small budget? Wrap a canvas you already own with pretty wrapping paper to freshen up old decor.

Layer the bed with a folded top sheet topped with a throw blanket. Cat optional.

Eclectic: mismatched furniture, a mix of pattern and colors, collected-over-time gallery wall, DIY accents, a painted floor and flea market finds.

I’m in the process of planning a re-do on our other guest room/dressing room. Our master bedroom is a disaster since the day we moved in but always seems to get pushed further down the priority list. What’s your style and favorite bedroom in your home?
