This Classic, Traditional Vintage Christmas Home Tour with elegant touches of white, red, green and metallic accents creates a warm and cozy family home for the holiday.
Welcome to our home this Christmas! I am so happy you are here. I always love the Holiday Housewalk week, and I hope you enjoy my little tour.
You can start the tour from the beginning by visiting Jennifer Rizzo's Day One post. If you are coming over from Nina Hendrick's beautiful home, welcome! Her home is so pretty and happy, decked out in traditional Christmas colors. And don't even get me started on her cute pup. Her home is every bit as lovely as she is.
Christmastime is where my heart truly feels at home. I can't describe it very well, but I long for Christmas during other times of the year and am so happy when the season finally rolls around. I love absolutely everything about it, but most of all, I love all of the traditions with my littles. The holidays are a magical and cozy time in our home and I try to reflect that in our Christmas decor.
This year, I was drawn to decorate our home in traditional Christmas colors with hints of elegant metallics. I am so in love with the combination. I have been sharing several DIY ornament and decor ideas here on my blog and on Instagram, so I hope you can follow along!
Our fireplace might be my favorite thing to decorate. You can see how I achiever this lush garland look in my tutorial HERE.
These beautiful striped linen pillows are my new favorites and are from my friend Jen's collection over at City Farmhouse and Co. They match so beautifully with my home and my Christmas decor. I love that I will be able to use them all year long.
For our family room tree this year, I used my favorite flocked tree as the base. (You can see my sources page for preflocked trees HERE, how to flock your own Christmas tree HERE, and my tips for choosing trees HERE) I added berry branches, pinecone branches, my collection of mercury glass ornaments, and inexpensive ornaments that I made look more expensive (see my saved Instagram stories for tutorials for those). My favorite thing is this beautiful beaded garland thatI picked up at a local antique show.
I built this wood base of our tree last year and it has been such a game changer for us! I love not having a tree skirt. It is so much easier to clean around and it keeps my tree up off of the floor and further away from little hands. I shared the tutorial and building plans HERE.
I chose mostly neutrals for my gift wrapping this year with pops of traditional colors and metallics. My favorite part is the mini mercury glass ornaments I tied to a few of the gifts and the luscious velvet ribbon.
My mom bought this Merry Christmas hanging artwork from a shop in Utah and I love it. It is such a big, fun piece for that large wall.
Over in the kitchen, I leaned a couple of art prints (bought at that same antique show) up against the wall above my jar shelves. If you are new here, we built these shelves about 6 years ago to help give us more pantry storage and they have been amazing for our family. They hold our staples and we use them every single day. You can see the tutorial HERE.
I made that sweet little cake and it was actually so easy using my favorite hack ever- this layer cake pan set. You can see more details in my post here. I also share how to make the sugared cranberries HERE. They are so easy and an absolutely beautiful accent for holiday desserts!
I'll be honest, I am not exactly loving the entryway yet. I think it might need more garland?
My office was so fun to put together this year! We have never put a tree in here and I absolutely love having one in our front window. I kept this one simple with whites and silvers, mostly things I had on hand. There is one DIY ornament that I will be sharing in a free printable soon. You can read all of the office Christmas details HERE.
I had these blue berries from a few years ago and I love the little pop of color.
This little bird ornament is the printable I will be sharing here on the blog soon. You can download other free printable ornaments, and read all about German glass glitter, HERE.
Out on our dining table, I put together an easy little project. I found these sweet bottles at the dollar store, removed the corks, and gently wedged candles in the opening. They look so pretty with the glow of the Christmas tree. I will be sharing more with them soon too.
My sweet girl with her wooden nativity. We are so thankful that our savior was born, and celebrate it during the Christmas season and all year long.
I will share the full sized trees decorated in my bedroom, my girls' room, and our vintage toy tree upstairs later this week, along with my sweet boys room, but here are a couple of posts from last year for you!
The next stop on the Holiday Housewalk today is Kindred Vintage. I absolutely adore her cozy and inviting home! You will love every little detail.
Thank you for visiting today!
