The French farmhouse holiday decor in my family room consists of lots of fresh cedar, mercury glass, and touches of French blue , creating a soft and sophisticated take on the season!
Good morning friends! I’m excited to share this post with you today as it’s one of my very favorites of the holiday season! I hosted this tour last year with some of the most talented bloggers out there, and this year we’re back again.
We call it a “Farmhouse Christmas” tour but obviously, there are nuances 😉 As many of you know, I’m a huge fan of French country style, so my family room is decked out in French farmhouse holiday decor.
Some of us are more traditional farmhouse style, some live in actual farmhouses, and some are more farmhouse-inspired (or in my case – French farmhouse inspired 😉 ). But either way, they are all beautiful and I think you’ll get lots of inspiration for your own holiday decorating!
So welcome to my French farmhouse-inspired family room tour….
As I shared in my kitchen tour a couple of weeks ago, I’m completely smitten with this soft French blue and it’s what formed my whole palette this year!
My vignette on the coffee table was created from things I mostly already had. French farmhouse holiday decor often uses this soft French blue and this year I was inspired to try it, too! A vintage bucket with blue mercury glass ornaments, a little white house, and some greens in a white jug form the simple vignette.
I’m seriously in love with this small vintage bucket! I’ve got a large one that’s almost exactly the same, but I had never seen one this size before. I knew the second I saw it that it would be perfect for holding some ornaments and creating that mix of rustic and refined that I love.
This little tree comes out every year! It’s been in the kitchen, in the living room, and here in the family room adding a little extra cheer. For those of you who’ve asked, it was from Target years ago and is about 3′ high. I love the size and how versatile is it! I’ve linked some similar ones below.
I plopped it in a vintage bucket, and it’s decorated with more blue mercury glass ornaments. It sits on a vintage breadboard atop two vintage French baskets.
I have a little collection of these Putz (or paper) houses and I love sprinkling them around the house. This one is new this year – I couldn’t resist ~ I mean, it’s blue!!
A vignette on the opposite table inspired by French farmhouse holiday decor. A chippy vintage finial, a tiny craft-paper wrapped tree, and a Mason jar with a snowy scene inside create a simple display.
Also, for those of you who are subscribers or regular followers, you might notice I have a new coffee table ~ finally! The other one we had had for many, many years and I was ready for a change. I also wanted something in a lighter wood and I needed a very specific size for this room (48″ square) which is really hard to find!
You can see more of this table and the decor in the adjoining kitchen in my Blue Christmas Kitchen Tour.
Another one of my little houses bought at a local boutique. I love their old-fashioned charm!
Thank you again for stopping by my French Farmhouse Holiday Family Room Tour! If you want to see last year’s tour in this room, you can find that tour here. (It’s all in blush tones so it’s very, very different!) And for even more Christmas inspiration, you can check out my Holiday Home Tours link.
I know there are a ton of tours going on this time of year, and I’m so happy that you chose to spend some time here at Maison de Cinq!
