Today we wanted to share with you some pictures of our bonus room with some holiday touches! We’ve only shared one side of this space before because it’s still quite a work in progress. It’s an oddly shaped room above our garage and although it is one of our favorite spaces to all hang out we haven’t really finished it and it’s a little tricky to photograph because of the angles but we decided to go ahead and take some pictures. On one side we have the sofa and TV as well as some of the things we kept from the girls playroom at our last house. And on the other side we have a table that functions both as a game table, project table and when we have people over another overflow eating space! We also have a large desk area that we do arts and crafts and other projects at.

We originally had our dark brown pillows and accessories in here which I really loved but I ended up moving those to our living room downstairs late this summer and once I did that I moved a lot of our blue things up here to kind of help tie the playroom side of the space to the table and desk side. Although I preferred the darker look with the browns up here I think right now this helps the two rooms flow together better and seem more cohesive.

If you are looking for a good “big” Christmas idea I have to say this chalkboard/whiteboard has been one of the most used items we have EVER gotten the girls. It’s huge and not only do our girls spend hours and hours on it, it is usually the thing that their friends and cousins gravitate towards as well. It is a MUCH loved piece.

Well that’s it for today! I hope you all have a wonderful rest of your Wednesday!

    I didn’t see a source for the cute little felt reindeer on the small bookcase. I decorate with reindeer and would love to find some like this!

    • Hi, Jenna! They were from World Market, but it was years ago so I’m not sure if they would still have them.

      • Jenna

        Thanks! I’ll look online since we don’t have any of their stores here in Alaska. 🙁

    Una bella atmosfera Natalizia.

    • Thanks, Sharon! Jenni stores them all in their attic for the rest of the year.
