Mom and I are so excited to share her Christmas home tour with you this year. This is our favorite time of the year so we love to decorate early and keep it up as long as possible. We’ve changed a lot up this year and went for a cozy cabin feel. I can’t wait to see what you think!
COZY CABIN FIREPLACE
This years Christmas is all new! We found a Christmas fireplace inspiration photo on Pinterest and ran with it! The whimsical fresh evergreen with a simple deer mount set the cozy cabin vibe. We usually use the large dough bowl filled with trees and pinecones in our tablescape. But this year it found a new new home on the shelf above the TV with the vintage snow shoes we scored on a flee market trip. We kept the tree simple with opaque ornaments and raw wood beads. And we topped it with a new trumpeting angel from Target this year. We used the pottery we took down from above the TV as a centerpiece for the coffee table and the room was complete.
We carried the fresh evergreen into the breakfast nook. We made a tutorial on how we put together the evergreen garland in this room. The breakfast nook window always felt bare at Christmas and we knew it needed to be dressed up but weren’t sure what to do until we found giant bells on our trip to the flee market. The store had them staged perfectly and we were sold! The oversized metal Merry Christmas ornament makes us happy and completes the window! We can definitely see ourselves using this scene year after year! Our nativity must find the perfect place in every home where we’ve lived. And in this home it’s on the buffet in our breakfast nook. I woke up singing “O Holy Night” the morning we were putting out the nativity and the words…”The thrill of hope, the weary world rejoices,” rang loud in my head! So the letter board reflects my hearts cry for the weary world to rejoice this year! I’m sure it’s your hope too!
SIMPLE CHRISTMAS KITCHEN
We say it every time but the kitchen is very simply decorated again. We love to add garland to the window in front of the sink, a wreath on the vent hood above the stove and a few small trees on the shelves. We did find some fun white pottery houses to add to the shelves where we keep our all white dishes. It looks clean and classic and keeps the function of the kitchen for cooking and entertaining through the holidays! We also like to replace the small pieces of art throughout with something that reflects the season too. We open the cookbook to something we’d love to make during the holidays and that completes our kitchen every year.
OUR FUR BABIES CHRISTMAS
We don’t like to leave out the fur babies room in our holiday decorating. So we give them a skinny tree, some evergreen sprigs, and a holiday pillow for their bed. I had stockings made for Sam and Sadie but Henry came later and we need to add one for him. Henry is a lop-eared bunny who thinks he’s one of the puppies. He is litter box trained and free ranges the room and loves to sleep with his brother and sister in the dog bed. We’ll make him a stocking and fill it with his favorite treat of bananas!
NAVY AND WHITE WINTER WONDERLAND
While all our trees are minimally decorated, the flocked white tree we put up in the dining room feels complete on its own. This year we kept the navy dishes and added little wreaths and white ceramic snowmen from the dollar section at Target. We love laying long branches of evergreen down the center of our 14 foot table! This is a great foundation for our centerpiece and as we’ve said, you can’t beat the price since we grab in the back yard for free. We layered some white candles in various heights, flocked pine cones, and small bowls of white carnations with evergreen sprigs. White roses are sweet too, but the carnations always last so long! The antique piano has gold candlesticks, bottle brush trees and a few Christmas village houses for whimsy. The room is, as always, one of our favorites because it’s where we can gather with family and friends, eat yummy food and host our friendly gingerbread house competition each year! OK, sometimes it’s not so friendly! But always fun!
THE CHRISTMAS ROOM
We have officially dubbed the guest room “The Christmas Room”! Last year we painted the room Pine Mountain by Behr. We added a large Pine tree landscape portrait our friend Charlee took and a mix of green throw pillows to our existing bed. But when we put up the Christmas tree we realized this was the quintessential Christmas room! Again, our tree is minimally decorated, This tree takes a full five minutes to put up as it’s one of the easy fold trees. We add a few glass ornaments, some ribbon, and a star to top it off! But within the cozy warm winter green walls its all we really need! We love this room because like the dining room it hosts our family and friends who stay throughout the season!
