We have been busy getting presents wrapped, going to Christmas recitals and oh yes decorating! I have been doing lots of decorating and have been having so much fun welcoming in this season of light into our home. 

Last summer we received gorgeous blinds from https://www.selectblinds.com/. They added so much warmth and texture to our living room that I was longing to add more of them to complete the look in the front room.

In the livingroom they added just the perfect contrast to all my whites, especially thus season, after I painted that armoire from gray to white. As well, before the window to the right felt too big for this space, but now with the blind the space is perfectly framed. I also think the dark color more readily incorporates the dark of the fireplace. 

It was so fun to decorate our tree so early this season, we just could not wait!

I also added a large blind to our slider in the livingroom/kitchen that I think kinda camouflages the slider. (I would love to replace that slider with a French door someday….). I added many mini Christmas trees to this space. I love all the cheery green they add.

So, after I was so happy with the changes in these spaces I couldn’t wait to add more blinds to the front rooms!

Now with the addition of the new blinds, this space feels warmer. Plus in this room we close the blinds every night. We went with cordless blinds, all you have to do is push up on the bottom to raise them. There are no strings to worry about the kids getting into and it is a very clean look. 

In this room I added several garlands of green that have twinkle lights. On our gray days of November and December these rooms are still cheery and bright. 

I’m thinking we may need to add a set of these blinds to our bedroom. I am so happy with the quality of them and by how much they add to each room. These rooms just look more finished now. I would also like to give a shout out to the customer service via https://www.selectblinds.com/, they were super easy to work with, even for a dimensionally challenged designer like myself!

I hope you enjoyed my little holiday home tour.

As a reminder this was a sponsored post, but all the experiences I shared were my own and honest. I would happily recommend this company to anyone.

Peace, love and Merry Christmas. I appreciate you reading along.❤️

      Thank you for reading along!
      Yes!!! The sliding glass four doesn’t bug me so much now that it has a pretty blind. We don’t open it and close it, it’s just for looks, but I love what it adds!
