We just love this time of year and are so excited to be sharing our favorite rooms and vignettes from our Christmas decor for 2015! It’s a time for cozy blankets, fireplaces, cinnamon and fresh cut balsam aromas, a time of giving and family. We hope you enjoy the following pictures and can use them for inspiration for your own holiday decor! We kept everything very simple and incorporated a lot of fresh greenery, most of which was cut from the bottom of our christmas trees before we put them in their stands!
The entryway to Vicki’s house became a rustic christmas style with lanterns, an old kerosene lamp, a rustic bench and a small tree in a wooden barrel stand.
Since the sitting room, that contains french provincial furniture, can be seen from the entryway we added this mirror and the chalkboard because they have small ornate details that coincide with the romantic feel of the sitting room next door.
We love the addition of the rustic lanterns and sled mixed in with the silver of the antique lamp and deer! It fits so well in the transition from very romantic (in the sitting room) to rustic in the opposite family room.
Below is Vicki’s kitchen, where the decor was very minimal. The counters are usually stocked plumb full of food for the holidays, which wanted to leave room for!
And next to the kitchen, which was kept very simple this year. Christmas with the extended family is hosted here every year and we knew we wanted to keep the counters clutter-free in order to accommodate the buffet and christmas goodies! Simply applying greenery above the cupboards added that festive spirit.
This open cabinet above the baking center got the most decor, but was once again kept pretty simple.
These small white vases on the countertops were also spruced up! 😉
And the island centerpiece was kept small but packs a punch with the red bulbs against the greenery.
And now to our favorite room…the sitting room! Most of the decor in this French-inspired room was already here, we just added small touches (like greenery, bulbs, trees, picks and garland) All the decor was very easy to incorporate and didn’t involve packing up old items to accommodate christmas ones.
All of the candles and the mirror were already on the mantle before, but the addition of the garland, different trees and the angels really dressed it up. Also, this mirror had a crack right down the middle which was originally going to get fixed. We couldn’t find anyone that did that kind of work but since we loved it so much we hung it anyway! The crack does not bother us whatsoever, it is a wonderfully beautiful vintage piece with character. Embrace the flaws, it only adds to their uniqueness.
For this table, we switched the plant with the tree and added the white trees by the candlestick, add a bit of greenery and bulbs and the perfect christmas vignette is created!
For this chandelier that was already hanging we applied a mixture of greenery and a beautiful beaded garland.
Can you tell we love vintage inspired ornaments! We placed them in baskets or trays all around this room. They really popped against the green. For this pedestal we swept up the leaves that had fallen while putting the garland on the mantle!
Another close up of the mantle (My favorite part, except the tree..)
The tree was kept neutral as well, with cream, white, silver and champagne bulbs, stars, and flowers.
This picture epitomizes what I love about this time of the year. The soft glow of the christmas tree while bundled up next to the fire=my perfect evening!
We hope you enjoyed the Holiday Home Tour for our Christmas decorating in 2015. We definitely had a wonderful time creating all of these beautiful vignettes while listening to our favorite holiday tunes!
