I’ve been busy packing up all my Fall decor (didn’t this season fly by!!) and unpacking my Christmas stuff. I never know exactly how I’m going to decorate until I actually start doing it; and then continue to move things around until I finally feel I got it right.
I added a few new items from this year’s Christmas collection from Walmart. You can see some of my favorite finds here. I find that getting just a couple of new items really sparks my creativity – and by “new” I mean new to me, I love vintage items and they add add so much interest to your space.
I wanted to keep my decor simple this year using neutral colors and lots of natural items. I did add a tiny splash of red in my kitchen.
On the other side of the kitchen, I painted the corner hutch a darker shade of blue. It had been aqua for a couple of years and I was ready for a change.
You can see my Hometalk project tutorial on how I painted my hutch here. I had the opportunity to collaborate with Graham & Brown for this project.
I filled the a basket on the top of the hutch with some fresh greens and added some icy stems. I added a few pine cones too.
I made this pretty bowl by first placing a few $1 boxwood stems in the bottom, I topped them with some fresh pine cones, and finished it off with oversized jingle bells and buffalo checked ribbons.
I added a row of pine cones in a vintage chicken feeder for a simple look.
I kept my living room Christmas decor simple and neutral this year.
I added this rug a couple of months back. I love how the colors in the rug tie all the pieces of my living room together.
This console table was an awesome yard sale find a few years ago; I scored it for $10! It was a shiny oak before I refinished it to this blueish-green (American Paint Company “Dollar Bill”)
I’ve collected all these pieces over the years. I love the vintage ice cream canister that is holding the tall branches; It was a flea market find.
A bundle of birch and a winter spray make for a simple natural basket that I can leave out after Christmas is over.
An antique candelabra is the perfect spot to display pine cones I have collected.
A string of fairy lights illuminate the icy cone trees.
I used buffalo checked ribbon and wooden ornaments to fill my tree this year.
I love this little owl ornament! Isn’t he cute?
I needed a little bit of Christmas cheer in my bedroom too! I added a little lit Nordic tree in the corner
This cabinet was in such rough shape before I fixed it up! You can see it’s transformation here.
My cute yarn trees are nestled on a tray of fresh greens and pine cones; they were so easy to make! You can see how I did it here.
Now that my halls are decked it is time to move onto the front porch…
Thanks for stopping by to see my home; I hope you have a wonderful holiday season!
