Christmas Home Tours | Meet Kim Bostain

Meet Kim Bostain! I don’t know anyone who takes Christmas decorating to the level that she does. Each room is filled with joy and happiness, and elegantly decorated with a whimsical touch for the holidays. Most families decorate one tree, Kim decorates seven! She is the most organized person on the planet, and has an entire system for packing and unpacking all of her decorations each year. It’s quite impressive. Kim, along with her husband Jack, hosts lots of holiday events but her favorite is Santa’s breakfast with her daughter Maggie and her friends. Let’s begin the tour in the beautiful living room.

I love the soft pastel colors. Kim chose silver and mercury glass decorations for this room which blend perfectly with her mirrored glass coffee table and side table. I’m crushing on her pink bows on the mantel for a pop of color. Kim is all about the details, even down to the sparkling snowflake ornaments hanging from the chandelier.

Now, this is a fun room! Their sunroom is decorated in a retro theme, which is awesome. Seen below is the coolest display with an old record player, an Elvis holiday album, small coca-cola bottles {which are my favorite} and Merry Christmas water bottle wrappers, found on Etsy.

This room is very festive with another decked out “retro style” Christmas tree by the Grand piano.

There are two showstoppers in this room that caught my eye. First, the acrylic coffee table is to die for! And over the fireplace is the most gorgeous abstract painting full of color which brings the room together.

Here’s a neat decorating tip. Fill your glass hurricane with a red candle and white sand to resemble snow.

Family room:

What is your favorite room in your home to decorate and why?  “Definitely our Family Room, which is filled with all our different collections with so many memories.” says Kim. I would say so. I’ve never seen so many collectibles. It’s truly Santaland with the spirit of Christmas!

The Kitchen breakfast area is complete with a Department 56 “Kringle Tree” display from Macy’s. Kim wanted to buy it for 5 years, and finally Macy’s sold it to her. How fun is that? She also has a Department 56 cake plate on the table.

On the kitchen counter is a fun and colorful arrangement to compliment the festive mantel. It’s a child’s dream come true in here. Really.

Dining room:

The white and gold dining room feels like a winter wonderland. Their gold and white tree is the oldest and has ornaments from the early 90’s. The holiday dinnerware, decorated chandelier and pretty table centerpiece are examples of Kim’s elegant style and touch of glam.

In the foyer is the most beautiful chandelier which used to be brass. Kim painted it black to coordinate with the black staircase railing. She is one talented lady. It looks amazing.
