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!!
This new tree is the King flock slim 6.5 ft. tree from King of Christmas. I’ve never had a flocked tree in here and I have to say, I’m loving it! The slim size is perfect for this corner, too!
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!

I Loved the tour and your beautiful home. Maybe someone has asked this before, but your coffee table is stunning. Do you mind sharing where you purchased it?
Hi Dawn and thank you so much!! The table was from Wisteria, my favorite store and one that sadly, went out of business. I’m looking for a similar one to link but so far I haven’t found one!
Dawn Hogan says
Thank you for getting back to me. Your room is beautiful and that’s a great addition to it!
Cecilia from Georgia says
This is exactly what I have been dreaming of doing this year with the pale aqua! I love how you have decorated with such style. I will pin and keep for a reference as I use your lovely home for my inspiration. Have a wonderful weekend!
Oh what a lovely compliment! Thank you so much Cecilia!!
Once again you nailed it! Love all of it. So I have a couple Pottery Barn items on my wish list, but have only bought from them a couple times the last few years and just wondering if you would happen to know when they have the best prices? On Black Friday/Cyber Monday or another time-in your experience that is as I know things can change. Thanks so much!
Hi and thank you Gina! In my experience, Pottery Barn has great prices on Black Friday and sometimes in the next few weeks afterwards. They don’t get much higher than 25% off any regular price items (I’m not referring to clearance stuff as that is different). If I were you I would sign up for the emails – they email frequently but that’s often how I know when things have gone down!

I just love the pops of blue, and of course French Farmhouse will always have my heart! Gorgeous as always, thank you for putting this together!
Thanks so much Chloe!! LOVED your gorgeous tour, too my friend. Happy Holidays to you!
Shelia I left a comment and it went sideways.
O well, bottom line is I love your Christmas decor, so pretty with gentle touches of Christmas magic.
PS there can never be too many Christmas Tours!
Hi Rachelle and thanks so much! I’m so glad you love it – it’s always so nice to hear from readers that you’ve been inspired here:)
thank you for stopping by!
Oh my gosh, this all looks so beautiful. I love your home. I cannot find your cloche with the silver stand. The one in the link is very large and the silver stand link is also a cake stand. Would you by any chance remember if the cloche you have came with that silver stand and where you got it from? I have searched high and low for it all morning. Thank you so much, I have located the little blue house at Pier One..Thank you for always taking the time to help us out here make our homes as beautiful as yours. I for one truly appreciate all of your time.
Hi Rose and thank you so much for your kind words! The little silver pedestal stand I got at an antique store so it is vintage, and yes, it’s small! I looked and looked for one to link that was as small as mine and didn’t have any luck. I’m sure if you keep looking on Etsy something will turn up! But the cloche I linked from Crate and Barrel is similar in size to the one I used (they did not come together as a set – in fact I bought them years apart!)
Hope that helps! If you still need help, feel free to email me.
Sheila, your holiday decor is lovely and inspiring with so many great ideas.
Aww what a lovely comment! Thank you Teresa!!

Your tour was awesome – everything looks so good!
LOVE your perfect new coffee table – the dimensions are just right.
Your dog is so adorable.
What is the color of your smaller table? Did you paint it yourself?
Hi Michelle, and thank you so much for your lovely words! I’m loving the coffee table, too – only looked for 4 years, haha!
And the smaller tables I painted myself with Chalk Paint. They were originally black and from Ballard Designs but are discontinued. I have similar ones linked under Shop my Home if you want to check it out!
Thanks for stopping by and happy holidays!
