“Joy to the world, the Lord is come!
Let earth receive her King;
Let every heart prepare Him room
And heaven and nature sing
He rules the world with truth and grace
And makes the nations prove
The glories of His righteousness
And wonders of His love”
-Joy to the World
As a new blogger, I have enjoyed the Christmas season with all the beautiful images from my new blogging friends. Their blogs certainly provide plenty of inspiration. I am sure that if you have been following our blog, by now you know that I love color. And with that said, I never shy away from mixing colors that might not typically be seen together. Today I am showing just a little of our master bedroom. During our almost thirty six years of living in our home our bedroom has worn many different colors on its walls and fabrics. But, I have enjoyed this color scheme and have yet to tire of it. Traditional Christmas colors of red and gold play beautifully with the turquoise walls and silk window treatments.
As we continue to share our home, you will see more of my personal decorating style, and like I said before, lots of color! But it is our heart’s desire that your eyes see much more than what is visible. Our desire is that our home be a safe haven for our family and friends, that love and encouragement is abundant, but above all-a place where Christ is exalted.
As we have prepared our home for this season, may we also prepare room in our hearts for the coming of the King!
Just a few touches of Christmas in the master bedroom!
This is a large Santa made by my Mother! You can see more here: Glad Tidings: Kitchen Tour
Besides the beautifully hand-crafted Santa, there is a sleigh with ornaments and fresh magnolia from our yard
This small table sits between a pair of Maitland Smith chairs that I bought at a real bargain!
The ornaments are shades of turquoise, green, and blue
Flocked and lighted garland with needlepoint stockings that are definitely vintage– bought shortly after we moved into our home!
This one belongs to Butch…
…and this one is mine!
A small pillow for a warm Season’s Greeting
This photo shows the beautiful Schonbek chandelier ( and by now, we all know I love a chandelier!), original Togolese art that we purchased on our trip in 2011, and faux tortoise crown molding!
Bedside table with its holiday finery…pillar candle with a ring of glitzy greenery and ornaments and framed art!
The bust is displaying a beautiful necklace that Butch gave me.
The painting of a cafe in Montmartre was found in Paris-one of my favorite cities!
The star overlooks the Baby in the manger. Love this original art work from Montana!
“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him,
so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit”
