Christmas Loft Tour 2016 - Small Home Decorating


Hello, everyone!  With Christmas being only 12 days away--- I know crazy, right?! -- I wanted to share with you our Christmas Apartment Tour 2016.  I wanted to keep it a bit minimal but festive and I'm very happy with how everything turned out.


My boyfriend Paul and I live in cozy 2-bed loft style apartment in Michigan with our animals (can't forget to mention them!) and I decorated most of the first floor.  I FINALLY purchased my first DSLR camera, so most of these pictures were taken with the Canon T6, if you're curious.  I was so excited that it arrived in time for this post!!

Anyways, welcome to my place :)  I hope you enjoy this post and get inspired to decorate even if you have limited space.  Normally we chose a full size real tree, but this year we went with a real tabletop tree and it saved a bunch of floor space!  I'll stop chatting for now.... lets roll the pics!  Let just say, I may have gotten a little picture crazy ;)

I love this little penguin and you can find him at Dollar Tree!
Since we went with a tabletop tree, I used a fleece scarf as a
mini tree skirt.  It worked really well!
 
On our breakfast bar I placed lighted garland (here's the DIY!), pinecone
candles and Bath and Body Works Mahogany Balsam Candle.
These are my favorite stockings!  I love the rustic style.
Our main setup :)  I really wanted to make the tree and fireplace
the center of attention!
I love this Santa tin and I found this at Dollar Tree as well!
Fit my Candle-lite Company Apple Cinnamon Crisp Candle perfectly!
The kitchen towels are from Target.. haha Aurora had to be included!
A few more decorations at the end of our kitchen table.
 
Here's how everything looks in daylight.
Our view from the loft window :)  I love the large snowy trees!
Always a favorite... dog sled team with lights above the doorway.
Decorating above windows is great for smaller places!

There's the Christmas Tour Round Up!  It's always so special to take the time to decorate :)  I hope you're all having an amazing holiday month so far!  

What's your favorite Christmas activity or tradition?  Share with me in the comments! -- Mine's baking cookies and watching Christmas movies!

I hope you enjoyed!  Feel free to follow my site for future posts.  As always, thanks for stopping by :)  Have a great day and talk with you soon!

Lots of Love,

Richelle
