Happy Monday to you! Today is a special post as this is my first holiday tour of the season! I’m joining six other amazing bloggers to bring you a French Christmas Tour, hosted by my friend Lory of Designthusiasm. Many of the bloggers I’m joining today are people I was reading before I even started a blog. They are immensely talented, with gorgeous photography and styling, so be sure to scroll to the bottom and visit all of their posts!
If you are landing here after visiting one of the other blogs, thank you so much for stopping by! I’m Sheila and I’ve been blogging here at Maison de Cinq for a little over two years. Here I share my love of design, my decorating adventures, as well as entertaining and lifestyle posts. I consider my style “casual chic” but underlying much of what I love, and how I decorate, is inspired by France.
The French style I’m partial to is not the fancy, dressy version, but rather a pared-down version of French Country. I decorate in mostly neutrals, with a pretty clean and simple aesthetic. And my Christmas decor is in much the same style. I don’t really do red in my Christmas decor, instead focusing on greens, creams, and whites, with metallics added for some sparkle. So welcome to my home and my version of a French Christmas Tour…..
A Casual Chic French Christmas Tour
One of my vintage French cast iron urns holds some clippings and pine cones from the trees in our backyard.
Here I grouped some bottle brush trees with mercury candleholders on an antique silver tray. I love bottle brush trees! Their old-fashioned charm just speaks to me. Mine are a mix of vintage and reproduction.
These candleholders I recently chalk painted and could not be happier with the new color! It’s actually only the second time I’ve used chalk paint and I have to say, I’m hooked!
Looking from our living room into the dining room.
Thank you again for stopping by! And Happy Holidays from our home to yours!
