Hathorn Hall Holiday Home Tour: The Parlor


Bronze, gold, copper–I have a thing for metals *wink*

Hey, y’all! Welcome to Sweet Sorghum Living–a place to sit a spell with a good cup of coffee and enjoy good conversation about everything from Christmas decorating to handmade goodness. Today on the blog, we are continuing our Hathorn Hall Holiday Home Tour. So, y’all come on in and sit a spell in the parlor *smile*

During the front porch tour, I mentioned my love affair with red tartan plaid. I had a little bit leftover from the lighted garland project, so I used it to make a bow for one of the trees in the parlor.

Sweet burlap bows combined with berries brings a bit of rustic into the parlor.

Warm metals + red

silver goblets + pinecones = simple and easy mantel display

Delicate gold netting adds just enough sparkle.

Believe it or not–it was the hubby’s idea to put three trees in the parlor. I loved his idea–because I love decking the halls and trimming trees + they represent my precious, little family–the hubby, Abby, and me.

Mattie wants everyone to know there will be no sitting a spell in her chair *wink*

Thanks so much for sitting a spell with me today as we toured the parlor. Stay tuned for a Hathorn Hall Holiday Night Tour! Tomorrow we will peek inside the family room–which will soon undergo a color change–I have the most fabulous colors chosen to warm up the large and awkward space! Shhh…I can’t tell. The hubby doesn’t know of my entire plan yet *wink*

Mattie wishes all of you a very Merry Christmas!
