Today’s holiday tour features simple French farmhouse Christmas decor in the kitchen! This year I’ve combined a neutral palette of gold and white combined with lots of greenery to create a casually elegant feel.
Welcome friends! Today I’m sharing my kitchen and family rooms all dressed up for the season. I’ve continued my theme of gold and white that I started in the living and dining rooms, mixing that with lots of texture and greens.
And today’s Christmas tour is part of the Holiday Housewalk hosted by Jennifer Rizzo! This is always a gorgeous tour, and I’m thrilled to be taking part again this year. There are a total of over 25 bloggers sharing all through this week, so be sure to check back each day for more inspiration!
And if you happen to be landing here from the stop before me, My Sweet Savannah (or any of the other lovelies on the tour), hello and thanks so much for stopping by!
If this is your first time visiting here, I’m Sheila and I live in Southern California with my husband and three kids. (Thus the blog name Maison de Cinq which means “House of Five” in French). I love all things French, from the food, to the clothing, to design. And I describe my home as a blend of French farmhouse style combined with a California casual vibe.
Over the last few years I’ve really pared down my holiday decorating to create a simpler style. I love to mix lots of greens (faux and live) with a neutral palette to create a calming space that’s not overly decorated. I find the simplicity helps keep me calm during the sometimes craziness of the holiday season, and it speaks more to my love of European style as well.
So welcome to my take on a simple French farmhouse Christmas!
Last year’s palette was similar, but with more focus on greenery and without the touches of gold I brought in this year. And I’m loving how it turned out! It’s amazing how much warmth just a few touches of gold bring to the space.
I love to decorate our peninsula with little vignettes that focus on the season. For this holiday season, I filled a white ironstone pitcher with white roses. Alongside that is a bread board with some sprigs of pine and cedar and some tiny gold and white ornaments.
This is the third time I’ve added a little tree to the kitchen and I couldn’t love it more! Each day when I’m in here I get a little touch of holiday cheer from the twinkle lights. And since I spend so much time in here, it’s lovely to see the little tree while I’m working. 🙂
Another vignette on the counter with gold ornaments in a vintage scale, white bottle brush tree, and one of my favorite little trees in a terra cotta pot.
These brass bells are one of my favorite things to decorate with! I love the vintage feel they bring and they add texture and of course, a little bit of sparkle. I have three sets of them and spread them around in different rooms. They’re also great for adding to a mantel or wreath.
This white dough bowl is a new purchase and I’m totally smitten. I love how the greenery and gold ornaments pop against the white!
The little wreaths tied to the chairs were a lucky find in the Target dollar spot bins. But any candle wreath is usually about the right size!
In the past I’ve had a wreath on this piece of art, but this year I wanted to change it up a bit so I created a swag. I combined real branches of cedar and pine with some faux greenery. Some white berries, sprigs of eucalyptus, and a velvet ribbon finish it off.
I love that this will last all season, and could even stay up through January.
A peek in the distance at the neutral Christmas pillows I added to the sofas.
The family room is directly across from the kitchen in an open concept style so all the decor is in the same neutral gold and white palette.
I added some decor and greenery to the coffee table. And another small tabletop tree sits on baskets across from the larger tree.
The tree is simply decorated with a mix of ornaments in gold and white.
A vintage wicker basket holds more gold and white mercury glass ornaments on the coffee table. I love vintage wicker and the texture and patina it adds!
Another white ironstone pitcher holds fresh pine and cedar branches along with eucalyptus and pinecones. The little white glitter trees add some sparkle on a pedestal.
I hope you’ve enjoyed this simple French farmhouse Christmas tour and that it’s helped to inspire your own holiday decor!
