A Farmhouse Christmas Home Tour

Today I am opening my doors and sharing my home all decorated for the holidays as part of the Farmhouse Christmas Home Tour! 
I absolutely love decorating for Christmas. It is definitely something I look forward to, and this year, I really wanted to make a change. I have been loving neutral Christmas decor for awhile now (see my post about that here), and during last year’s tour I talked about my desire to do mostly creams and greens and get rid of the red, so that is what I’ve done this year. It’s such a big change for me!
Not only have I always had a lot of red at Christmastime, but I’ve had red in the family room/kitchen area for about 15 years now. And I have to say, I’m loving the result! It’s such a subtle and peaceful look, it really relates to how I’m feeling decor-wise right now. I’m into simplifying in general, and the softer colors of greens, golds and creams fits that. I still love red and white for Christmas, and I’m sure I will do it again someday, but for now, this has my heart.
The neutral farmhouse Christmas vibe is just speaking to me right now!
For those of you who’ve followed me for awhile now, you know that I try not to buy too much new every year. Much of what I have is something we use over and over; ornaments and decor that we’ve used year after year. I love the traditions that the season brings, and the meaning that those traditions bring. In order to achieve the new color palette, I simply eliminated the items I had that were red; I only had to buy a few new items to fill things out.
So welcome to our home, and come on in!


Farmhouse Inspired Christmas Tour

I used a live tree in the family room with a burlap tree skirt.
This little cabin/house was a find this year at Home Goods. I have bought and collected the little white houses before, but for some reason, this just spoke to me! The frosty white trees are old but these are almost exactly the same!
The urns are Pottery Barn.

A vintage bottlebrush tree in a little vignette with some books and my absolute favorite Christmas candle, Joie de Noel by Votivo. My bottlebrush trees are in every room and I have both vintage and repro – I love both!

More white bottle brush trees in a vintage silver tray.
The chippy urn is also vintage.
Another antique French urn filled with pine cones and eucalyptus. Candleholders are vintage silver.
In the kitchen I went with a boxwood wreath. I love the look and the color they bring. 
I love decorating our range mantel – it’s one of my favorite ways of changing up the decor for the seasons. Here I kept it simple with a small white wreath, an ironstone platter, and two faux little pine trees.

The little tree is a live small cypress from a local garden center.

Another boxwood wreath, a white pitcher filled with simple greens and eucalyptus, and some old chippy candleholders.
The wood signs, bottlebrush tree, and the cake pedestals and glass cloches are a mix of vintage and new.

  5. Thank you so much Cindy – that means a lot. I agree, I'm not a person to over-decorate and it's not really my style.

You've made me feel much better!
