Christmas Touches in Indiana

Before Christmas comes and goes, I thought I would show you some of the Christmas touches we are enjoying while visiting our son and his family in Northern Indiana for Christmas.

The house used to be dark tones of gold tones and adobe red.  Earlier this year, Michelle had the entire house repainted in these light fresh shades of gray.

She based her color theme on this painting.

Since this room is her favorite, she dressed it up beautifully for Christmas.

All of the decor, down to the Christmas tree decorations carry out this color theme.

I love these beautiful boxes under the tree.  Who wouldn't want to open this on Christmas morning.

The Buffet is lovely when the aqua glass bottles capture the sunshine streaming in the windows.

This welcoming foyer is home for the traditional nativity scene.

On the side table in the family room is the other nativity set.

On the large island is this pretty little arrangement on a sled.

The live tree in the open breakfast/kitchen/family room is bedecked in tones of taupe checkered ribbons and red along with favorite family ornaments.

The ribbon on the mantel wreath continues the tree ribbon.

This is only the downstairs. Every room upstairs has favorite touches of Christmas that are special to each person.

Savannah has The Nutcracker tree in her room that we gave her when she was a tiny little girl.

Mary-Elizabeth's room is full of her Nutcracker collection.

We have a beautiful church illuminating our room.  Even the bathrooms are beautifully done with some little touch of Christmas.

Perhaps the most favorite decoration in the whole house is this little girl.

And these are our Christmas Touches in Indiana.

Merry Christmas to you!
