Our French Christmas tour combines lots of natural elements with some metallics for sparkle, creating a beautiful, neutral take on the season.
Today I’m sharing my French Christmas tour of the living room!
But the French style I’m partial to is not the fancy, dressy version, but rather a pared-down and simpler version of French Country. I decorate in mostly neutrals, with a 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…..
This is the mantel in our living room and where we hang our stockings each year. The wreath is an old one from Restoration Hardware, but I love it so much I just keep using it!
The stockings I found last year at Home Goods. I just love the mix of the rough, casual burlap against the glittery letters on each one!
A vintage bucket holds a little live pine tree, and a metal bucket holds our logs.
I frequently use vintage baskets and this is one of my favorites. I love the shape and the color, and it’s French!
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!

This chippy white antique bowl holds a mix of mercury glass ornaments and some live greens.
