It’s time for our second annual Holiday Home Tour of our tiny bungalow! Despite the renovation and all the flux of wedding planning, I still made a point to decorate the house for the holidays this year. Admittedly, I didn’t put up nearly as much decor as last year, but I am still really proud of how the tiny bungalow looks… and smells! Today I partnered with Air Wick® to treat you to a holiday home tour, plus how we make our home smell inviting and cheerful.
Our Holiday Home Tour + How We Decorated Our Tiny Bungalow
Our Christmas Tree
It was not in the cards for us to get a live tree this year simply because of how busy we are. We didn’t have the mental bandwidth to even remember to keep it watered. Instead, we step up the artificial, pre-lit tree that I use for photoshoots. I’m really glad we did this because it saved us a lot of time and also means we won’t have even more to sweep up. I decorated it with our usual array of ornaments and added our DIY tree skirt that we shared a couple of weeks ago.
The one thing I really miss about having a real tree is the smell of fresh pine. Thankfully, there are two ways to make your home smell extra-festive during the holidays thanks to Air Wick:
One option is my trusty Air Wick® Essential Mist Diffuser®. I placed it near this area (remember how I used it in my studio?). With two new holiday fragrance options (Apple & Cinnamon and Merry Cherry), I love how this device keeps our bungalow smelling great all season long.
You can also use the Air Wick® Scented Oil Warmer®; we keep that one in the bathroom, but it’s perfect for anywhere else in your home. I love how the limited-time scents like Pumpkin Spice, Warm Apple Crumble, Woodland Pine, and Warm Mahogany set the holiday mood.
With each option, they last a really long time, so you don’t have to worry about refreshing them before guests come over. Also, it diffuses long lasting fragrance, making your house consistently feel like a home. With 5x fragrance settings, you can control fragrance settings to fill your room with juuuust the right among of fragrance.
Our Living Room Holiday Decor
Most of our festive decor is in the living room because that is the space least affected by our renovation. I cleared off the top of our credenza and laid down some faux sheepskin rugs. Then, I hung our cute striped stockings and layered on my favorite twinkle lights. I added a few metallic glass trees, then turned the TV to the Fireplace For Your Home on Netflix for some extra-cozy vibes. We may not have a real fireplace, but this is the next best thing!
The Bar Cart Area
We finally have our dining room back in order from the kitchen renovation, so I’ve been taking full advantage of it. I really missed our vintage bar cart, especially. There’s something about it that always makes the room feel more complete. I decked out the bar cart with a Scandi-inspired wooden bead garland and a few simple ball ornaments in a cloche. Next I added a metallic glass tree and a cute spool of twine and -voilà- it instantly looks festive.
Our dining room
I use our dining table as gift wrap central during the holidays, so usually it’s kept pretty clear. That usually gives us room to wrap presents and enjoy a cup of tea (and cookies!). Once the presents are all wrapped, I usually make sure there are flowers in the table at all times during the holidays.
Speaking of presents, the Air Wick® Essential Mist® makes a wonderful gift. It is the first-of-its kind format that transforms natural essential oils into mist with timed bursts of holiday fragrance, again and again. And you can’t beat the two newest holiday scents, Apple & Cinnamon and Merry Cherry Holiday. The latter is my personal fave because it has notes of almond cream and I am a sucker for all things almond!
