Last week, I showed you my Christmas Mantle Three Ways and today I’m sharing a little Christmas home tour! Let’s start in my favorite space: the living room! As I’m sure you know, we love to decorate for the holidays! Every year we try to mix things up with new and old pieces for the season. Since it’s our first year in this home, we wanted to create an atmosphere that perpetuated happy memories for the future and a calm sense of welcoming for our guests! Our formal living room is naturally very light and bright, so we stuck with decor that would really set off those qualities.

I brought in a lot of metallic pieces that would flow with pops of white and natural elements, such as our cedar and magnolia garland over the fireplace and simple firewood. I wanted the space to have that magical Christmas feel. We opted for a white tree this year for this room. It really reflects all the white snow you can so clearly see from our large front window. It’s almost like those two worlds collide and there really is no barrier from the inside out, keeping it simple and organic.

For our dining room, we brought in a lot of natural greenery to really set the foundation for the space with pops of red and gold to give it a more traditional feel. We wanted it to be a little more playful, so we added a fun little pom-pom garland to hang naturally across the dining table. We kept the decor quite simple, as to not overwhelm the space.

    You do minimal Christmas very well.. I love it! As a maximalist when it comes to the holidays, (after collecting 50’s & 60’s Christmas decor for the last few years) I’m craving something simpler this year. But who knows, after bringing down the tubs from the attic I might want to put it all out! I’m inspired by your beautiful and simple ways of decorating with natural elements.

      Thanks so much Valerie! If I collected all that beautiful Christmas decor I would probably put it all out too!! Everyone has their own style and I say, show it all off!! I would love to see pictures :)
