Step inside our home – at night, for a tour of our Christmas decorations.
Honestly, I think our home is even more beautiful at night – it’s warm, cozy and full of glow, but I learned capturing it isn’t all that easy. For truly inspiring photos, don’t miss all of my friends’ home tours listed below!
I deem this evening home tour “all is calm, all is bright” because that’s the feeling our home evokes at 8pm when the girls go to bed. A quiet sense of calm and peace, yet bright warm tones and feeling in our hearts as we reminisce about our girls sharing their days with us.
Adding miracle flame candles in the entryway made a big impact because you can see them the moment you walk in the door, from the family room, office, living room and upstairs. I timed them so the moment it’s dark they turn on and they go off just after we turn in for the night. They’re from Balsam Hill and in person, look so authentic! We even have some flames set to a fast flicker and others a slow flicker so they vary. These candles are a good alternative.
We don’t use an abundance of Christmas lights but I thought our lanterns looked particularly pretty this year glowing garnished with olive branches and ribbon.

Christmas isn’t a season, it’s a feeling.
Last month we converted our wood burning fireplace to gas and I’m not sure why we waited so long! At the flip of a switch or touch of a remote we have added warmth and a beautiful glow. It’s made it difficult to leave the room because it feels so cozy!
