The holiday season might just be Alieta Casey’s favorite time of year. With a deep love of entertaining, the Caseys have friends and family from all over come together to celebrate Christmas in their home during the month of December. In fact, Alieta specifically designed her home to be the perfect space for entertaining friends and giving guests a warm welcome from their first steps inside.

Built in 2015, the Caseys’ Craftsman-style cottage is packed with character and cozy motifs. The large front porch was a must-have for Alieta, who notes that she wanted a porch large enough for a swing. Entering the home, family and friends are welcomed by an inviting foyer with white wainscoting and toffee-hued walls. Alieta filled the space with a variety of holiday décor that gives a taste of the country style to come. “I like to keep my decorations neutral with a few pops of red here and there,” she says.
