Virtual Holiday House Tour with Traci Zeller

Our "Virtual Holiday House Tour" continues with the super talented Traci Zeller.  Check out her timely "rustic French luxe" Christmas theme!

"This year is the first time I've done a "designer" Christmas tree.  Usually, I decorate with sentimental ornaments collected over the years ... but I decided to step it up a notch!   I was very inspired by decorations around the blogosphere -- in particular, Tobi Fairley's Parisian "Breakfast with Santa" table setting (which I had the pleasure of seeing in person) and Kirsten Krason's Etsy picks. I then settled upon a theme of "rustic French luxe" and a color scheme of red, white / cream / silver, and burlap / brown.  I minored in French in college, spent time studying in La Rochelle, and fell in love with my husband in Paris ... so it seemed perfect for our holidays.  I combined a bunch of things I already had with a few new Etsy purchases, and voil√†! 


Here are the decorations for my twins' room.  They are four years old and unbelievably excited about Santa!   Their beloved godmother made the Advent calendar, which actually works beautifully with the bright colors in their room.  I let them pick out their own little tree and ornaments at Target, and this was the result!

Thanks so very much for including me in this fun series!

Happy Holidays!
