Better late, than never…am I right? 😂
I loved adding red back into my Christmas decor this year. I’m still loving the old world/European vibes and I tried to incorporate some of those elements into my Christmas decor. I even tried the super popular dried oranges. It was a fun and very easy project.
Let’s get this tour started…
Our front door….Probably one of my favorite places to decorate. This year, I purchased sugar pine cones. They are huge! I wish sugar pines would grow here, but they don’t. I think they were an lovely addition to the front porch/door garland. I can tell you, that the tree and garland are the only things that are currently near my door. If you’ve seen my IG, you know we have a new puppy named Ralph. We call him Wreck-it-Ralph. I think you get the idea. 😆
I love how our entryway turned out! I really tried to get an old world/European feel in this space. This table from World Market is so fun to style for each season. But, I’m craving a change. Hopefully this year, the hubs will help transform this wall into something fun! Check out my IG reel here.
Is there anything more magical than the glow of Christmas lights in the evening? I just love this view. I used more color this year on the main tree. I wanted a really deep/burgundy red. I used black, gold, white, and silver ornaments as well. I had to add all new lights this year to the tree. We’ve actually had this 9ft tree since 2004 when we moved into our second home. Because it’s so old, all the lights have stopped working. I think I added at least 5-7 strands of lights. I used twinkle and standard Christmas lights. I love how it glows! A must have for this home was a ceiling high enough for my tree. 😂😂 Is that so crazy?
I think this may be my favorite mantel that I’ve done! I love the asymmetrical garland, the oranges, the beads, and the ribbon woven in. If you’ve been here for awhile, you know the mirrors used to be layered on the wall in the entryway. I love them on the mantel. I’ll probably keep them for awhile. And now we need to light that fireplace! I did a reel on IG and you can view it here.
I don’t think I’ve ever had so much decor on our coffee table…but I’m loving it! The felt ball garland was my inspiration. I found it in a cute shop in Denver, CO. I just love it! I love all the layers and textures. Check out my video here.
I did a very simple Dining Table Centerpiece. You can see the video on IG here. You can view other Christmas tablescapes in my blog post. We’re having family over for Christmas day, so this is going to be a very busy area!
I really tried to keep most of my Christmas decor fairly simple. For the bookshelves, I switched out a couple pieces, but I kept most of the decor the same. Artwork is such an easy way to change your seasonal decor. I downloaded art from Etsy and actually printed it at home! Add in a couple of reindeer, some gold bells and ya done! Do you see the theme that I used? Think of color… Check out my step by step video here.
I love styling shelves! This year in the kitchen, I added some fun different pieces. I love the vintage portrait! I don’t know who she is, but I love her! I switched out my rolling pins to have the red showing. Several months ago, I painted one side of the rolling pins handles a creamy color and left the red on the other sides. I only use them for decor and I love how I can just switch the color out. I think the shelf decor will be easy to transition into winter decor. Check out my IG reel here.
I kept the Kitchen decor pretty simple. I used a small tree from Target and placed it in that old vintage pot filled with small ornaments. I found the Santa salt and pepper shakers in a cute shop in Estes Park, CO. I really enjoyed making the dried orange garlands this year. I hope they will keep until next year, but if they don’t, it’s a super easy project. I did end up switching out my wreath on the range hood for one from Walmart. Check out my kitchen reel on IG here.
The mudroom is always a fun space to decorate. I’m still wanting to paint the bench, shelf, and shiplap a different color…preferably something warmer. The wooden village on top is something that I designed and ‘Handy Andy’ was able to cut out on our CNC machine. I love it! I added fairy lights behind it so it looks lit up at night.
The final room on this Christmas home tour, is our Master Bedroom. I love having a Christmas tree in our bedroom. Our tree in the bedroom is a super affordable white tree. I decorated it with pink, silver, and gold ornaments. I like to call it my Barbie tree. 😂 When you’re the only human girl in the house, you have to find creative ways to add in all the pink! I layered sage green pillows and mauvey pink pillows. I think it’s super cozy!
And that’s it! We’ll end where we began…at the front door. I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas! My new year’s resolution is to blog more. Until next time Treasure Hunters!
