Woods and whites are my favorite go-to decor for any season…along with green. You may notice a few more vintage-y type pieces in my decor this year. I’ve been wanting to add a little more story to my home. This side table is a perfect place to add a vignette full of farmhouse and vintage charm. I have a new printer’s cabinet in here from DecorSteals. I also added some vintage amber bottles. These have been super fun scavenging for at the antique stores. There’s a «vintage» book in the back behind the bottles. You’ll have to wait on how I did that in the upcoming months when they get featured in Country Sampler magazine 🙂 To tie in my little Christmas trees, I placed them in vintage terracotta pots.
Here’s a good view of my little white box, or so my husband calls this room. When I painted everything white earlier this year, I had plans to use red for Christmas. I knew it would pop beautifully. But isn’t it funny how visions change? I had lots of red in here last year and just wasn’t feeling it this go around. I did opted for lots of creams and brown though!
I’m pretty sure my grandmother’s antique mirror is what chose the decor in here for me. It just didn’t feel right putting red everywhere. I went with it’s vintage feel and decorated around it. I chose lots of candles, vintage books and a simple tree.
I found this antique elm bench at an antique store on vacation a few months ago and couldn’t leave without it. I seriously have no place to put it, but I knew I would use it in front of one of my Christmas trees. This may or may not be the last time you see it until next Christmas 🙂
I’ve curated these «matching» candlesticks over the years and put them in my faux fireplace. When they are lit, this room is magical! You’ll have to check out my social media accounts for a nighttime picture 🙂
The past two years I haven’t hung any stockings on this mantel because I didn’t want to take away from it’s ornate beauty. I decided to add just two in the corner…because well, it’s Christmas 2020 🙂 It definitely softened the look. I also added some more amber bottles with melty dripping candles. My go-to items to decorate a mantel: books, candlesticks, candles, garland, bookends and something big behind it all..in this case, a mirror.
This Christmas tree usually only ever gets ball ornaments on it. I try to keep it a little more simple in here. I used brown, gold and pearl ornaments to tie in with the mantel colors and the glow of the candlelight. The smaller tree next to it just stays naked.
I filled my dough bowl, also from DecorSteals, with lots and lots of pinecones. One can never go wrong with too many pinecones 🙂 I added two small flocked trees in the middle for height.
This isn’t a view I really ever show. It was always dark and dismal before I painted the wall. Now it’s so cheery!
I feel like this room has changed so much since last year…or even three years ago! It’s amazing what happens when you think you are done changing things…and then you look back three years and realize just how much you have changed.
I would never have thought I would use brown as one of the main colors for my Christmas decor, but I love how it turned out in here. I feel like it’s simple and let’s the other things speak for themselves.
I’m excited to start sharing more of my Christmas home with you, finally! I have more tours coming next week so be sure to check back! And when I get more time on my hands, I have three awesome projects to share with you: diy window seat with builtins in my daughter’s room, diy large corner armoire, and a cute and easy printers cabinet you can make for under $20! There’s still lots going on over here even if I don’t post as often as I used to! Be sure to join me on social media for lots of sneak peaks and behind the scenes 🙂
