Hello, friends!! I am so very glad that y’all are here today. I’ve joined up with four talented ladies to give y’all a peek into our homes all dressed up for Christmas. Their posts are linked up at the bottom of my home tour, so be sure to pop on over for some amazing Christmas inspiration!
Now, grab your favorite hot beverage and cozy on up while I give you a tour of our rustic farmhouse inspired Christmas. I knew I wanted to mesh my love of cottage and farmhouse styles with my husband’s love of the outdoors and all things rustic. The result was lots of greenery, plaid and rustic touches to create a cozy cottage feel in our home.
Let’s start in our entry way.
This area is very small, but by adding hooks for hanging coats and accessories, we were able to carve out a functional entry even with minimal space.
Our DIY board and batten serves as the perfect backdrop for the festive holiday colors. My favorite sweater and blanket scarf from Target’s dollar spot serve as simple decor along with an old knit stocking.
Moving into our living room, the first thing that greets you is our new 9 foot tall Christmas tree.
I love decorating our main tree with the ornaments that my little family has collected over the past five years and ones that belonged to me and my husband as children. I do tend to switch out ribbons that serve as a base for our ornaments each year. This year I went with a classic red gingham ribbon. I wanted our tree to have an eclectic, handmade feel that reflects our time together as a family. Every time I see it, I can’t help but smile.
I kept our mantle simple and rustic with live greenery, shed antlers and our new stockings. A small tree nestled into my great-grandparent’s butter urn adds some balance and weight to the hearth.
I don’t think I’ll be able to go back to fake garland after this year… I want to hang this stuff all over our house!
On our built ins, I kept things simple by adding a few natural elements like pinecones and pine sprigs to our existing decor. Some bottle brush trees housed in mason jars, the cutest nutcracker ever and another DIY Christmas house up the charm factor.
Our couch got cozier with lots of pillows and throw blankets. By combining different textures and patterns, I was able to create a soft, farmhouse-y, yet rustic look that makes you want to curl up with a cup of hot chocolate. Our pup, Ella, had to get in on the cozy action, too! Behind the couch, I layered several small faux trees and red berries with birch bark candles and my favorite reindeer sign from Down Grace Lane in front of a vintage painting I snagged at Goodwill.
Lets head into our kitchen, shall we?
This is one of my favorite rooms in our house, which is a feat considering how dark, dingy and dated it was when we first moved in.
This year I decided to put a tree in the kitchen, too. (There’s another in our dining room!) Its decorated simply, but the glow of the lights is so magical at night. I think I’m going to end up wanting a tree in e very room after this year!
I’m so glad that y’all stopped by to see our rustic farmhouse Christmas home tour! You can see our Christmas bedroom HERE. I hope you leave with some inspiration for your own home and the encouragement to deck your own halls in the style that is true to you and your family.
