Vintage Wintry Christmas Home Tour

I feel like I’m the last person blogger on the planet to reveal our Christmas home tour. I do have to pat myself on the back though. I did actually get our house decorated before Thanksgiving {yay}, but just got around to taking pictures of it all this past weekend. Better late than never, right?

If you know me in real life, you know that I’ve been waiting for this for years. Literally. I bought Christmas decorations on sale 2 years ago the day after Christmas with this house in mind. It was like Christmas day getting to pull out all the decorations I’ve bought over the years and finally put them to use. So without further adieu, here’s our official Christmas home tour.

I decided to go with two different themes for my Christmas decor. The front half of the house has a more wintry neutral look. Cool blue colors, lots of white, and silver. This is the original fireplace in my husband’s office all dressed up.

I’ve never been one to incorporate red in my Christmas decor. Just like the front half of the house, in the past I’ve stuck to more neutral colors. But this year, I caught the red bug, but more of the vintage red bug. Our house is mainly neutral, lots of wood tones, grays, and white. If there’s ever a time to bring color into our house, it’s Christmas-time.  So the back half of the house has lots of vintage reds, stripes, and plaid.

This is a new furniture piece we got a few weeks ago that’s now in our dining room. I was so excited to get to dress it up for Christmas. It has the perfect amount of storage and I love that it had an antique painted look.

Besides a new sideboard with Christmas vignettes, the rest of our dining room got Christmas-y with lots of boxwood wreaths and pretty red striped grain sack placemats.

And yes, we finally hung a few things on our walls, some of which are the painted wood piece and antique bread board you see in our dining room.

I love sugar pinecones and used a few big ones to fill the pretty dough bowl on our table along with some fresh greenery.

For our living room mantel, I incorporated lots of rustic elements like pinecones, faux red berries, and cinnamon sticks. P.S. can we talk about how much I love having a real, working fireplace. This one in our living room has gas logs, so with a quick flip of a switch I have a roaring fire instantly. For this perpetually cold, winter-hating girl, it’s a dream!

I bought this little handmade nativity set a few years ago and absolutely love it. It’s super simple, nothing fancy, but I love all the sweet handmade elements.

Clearly I had a thing for vintage red truck decor this year. It’s actually an ornament that I got at Pottery Barn, but I thought it would be a perfect accessory for our coffee table.

As you can see, plaid is a major theme for our Christmas tree this year. The little fake tree I had and used in years past is super small so we ended up buying a bigger faux tree to use for our living room. If you are in the market for a faux tree, I would highly recommend Balsam Hill. Balsam Hill isn’t paying me to say this and didn’t send me this tree, I just had heard great things about their trees and decided to give one a try. We couldn’t be more pleased with what we got. The tree looks so real and they provide everything you need to easily store it.

How cute are these little wooden skis? They were in the Target dollar bin. I have to admit, I totally stole the idea to put them in our tree from Liz Marie blog. I knew I wanted to go for a very lodgey, plaid, vintage theme and thought they would be the perfect thing to incorporate into our new tree. Be sure to check out Liz Marie’s blog for so much more Christmas amazing-ness.

And last but not least, our screened in porch got a festive uplift too. I bought some fresh greenery {my first time buying fresh greenery} and incorporated it onto this mantel {as well as around our front door}.

I love decking the halls for Christmas, listening to Christmas music, and watching Christmas movies. But most of all, I love this time of year for what it represents. The coming of our Savior, who came into this world as a humble man, to save sinners, myself being the biggest sinner of all.

I pray many blessings for your family this Christmas season!
