SF Cribs: The places behind the clothes - Page 122

post #1816 of 1906
Anyone else get pressured into doing holiday lights over Thanksgiving weekend? Thankfully it wasn't brutally cold this year, and I actually rather enjoyed the project.

From the sidewalk out front:

Kind of festive to see it from the inside when you pass by the windows.

Looks great, very understated unlike a lot of big TX displays

Thanks! I actually wanted to stop short of the reindeer but my 6 year old was pretty pumped about it. LOL

The real hassel is the interior decorating, which is Mrs. TC's project. Thankfully my only part in this is ensuring that the tree itself gets delivered. I'm heading to the nursery this afternoon to pick one out! Here is last year's.

Great display, you have a very nice home. Do you have more than one Christmas tree? I ask because that looks like a perfect place to display a tree, but not a perfect place to gather around the tree on Christmas morning to open gifts.

Thank you! No, that's the only tree, and I couldn't really envision more than one. We get a lot of enjoyment from doing the decorating ourselves and it takes a lot of time. You are exactly right, while it's cool to have the tree in the entrance to the house it is not an ideal location for Christmas morning. We gather in the family room which is nearby and someone has to play Santa and bring the gifts over. Fortunately my son happily embraces the role!

Some pics of my place...I just need to work on getting some better furniture, lights, bed frame, carpets now. Also looking to paint that blue trim on the windows, anyone have a suggestion for what color?




Might paint the pink behind the closet too, but it sort of accentuates the shelving color

First question is this Canada? It looks Canadian to me (Vancouver?).
Random comment: that window should consist of two glass panels ; large panoramic fixed panel and smaller panel on one side for ventilation. The developer saved on windows at the expense of aesthetics, which is a shame the view is fantastic.
