The 45th annual Holiday Home Tour where they fill homes (that you've ALWAYS wanted to poke around in) with holiday fare to raise money for local charities. This year they included art by local artists for sale in the homes too. Thought I'd give you a little tour of my favorites.
The dining room in this gorgeous craftsmen style home built in 1907 by the Empsons of the Kuner-Empson Cannery.
Holiday crafty idea....the little vases are Christmas tree balls with the tops removed glued to shiny disc stands.
This home has been extensively renovated with a contemporary edge complimenting the historic details.
Large, spacious, inspired rooms....
Tess and I were practically screaming over the colors in the kids rooms!
Next this uber contemporary home in the Prospect neighborhood. It's a spec home..for sale...a local home gift store owner had purchased furniture on eBay that was used on the sets of The Grinch that Stole Christmas....What a treat! The furniture is higher than normal, that must be how all the Who's in Who-ville looked so small. It brought back favorite memories of a trip long ago to Disneyland where my favorite place of the entire park was Minny Mouse's home and her fantastic comic book furniture in Toone Town!
It was kind of beat up, but that gave us a glimpse of how it was made...carved styrofoam covered in some sort of plastic....Hollywood magic...
I so WANT this bedroom set!
dream-y holiday fun....
What holiday time traditions do you look forward to?
