Our Snow Covered Christmas House

by - Thursday, December 03, 2020

Do you get snow where you live? For the last few years, we've had very mild Decembers so I was pleasantly surprised that we've had a few snowfalls over the last week. And maybe I'm only noticing it more because we're stuck at home, but home feels so much prettier when there's a dusting of snow on it.

I shared our Christmas front porch decorations a few weeks ago but I wanted to give a look at our full house exterior decorated for the holidays. The snow adds that extra bit of magic and I ran out with my iPhone to capture the beauty. I've edited these photos with a vintage filter in Lightroom to highlight that nostalgic appeal that Christmas always brings.

Here's a look at our frontage. We sit at one corner of a four way intersection. There is a slope to our property so our house sits above the street and looks larger than it is. We've made quite a few exterior improvements over the years and the house looks different from when we first purchased it.

The white fence is a favourite spot to decorate. It looks classic with a garland, white lights, and red plaid bows. This fence was so ugly (I'm not exaggerating - see for yourself) when we bought the house but now it's pretty as can be. I love the pine trees against this fence. Their green needles provide a nice contrast against the snow.

Our house is a traditional Colonial centre hall plan. The symmetry is played up by adorning each of the windows with matching wreaths. From the moment I first saw this house, I knew this is how I wanted it to look at Christmastime.

We have a larger wreath on the chimney. Since we sit on a corner, we decorate the two sides of the house so you have a nice view from either direction. Here you can see the small trees on the porch. This was the first time we've put trees there and I like the extra bit of sparkle and interest they add to that area.

I hope you enjoyed this look at our house in winter. Time to settle in and enjoy the rest of the season!
