It’s that dreaded time of the year when you finally have to unplug the twinkle lights, take off the ornaments and pack away the tree. Christmas is over. My feed is about to look a lot less festive and I feel like I am honestly mourning the Christmas decor being packed away.
So in honor of the most wonderful time of the year I wanted to do a quick blog post to highlight my favorite looks from this holiday season.
For the most part, my decor was a little more rustic/farmhouse especially in my main living areas. I accented with lots of red and red/white ticking stripe ribbon. I just couldn’t get enough of adding that fun pop of color in each space.
To add dimension and texture to the tree I accented with large magnolia stems, cotton, and red frosted berries. These were really my main inspiration and how I started designing my tree for this year. I put those on first and built around that “theme”.
I didn’t do a lot of ornaments because I really wanted the stems to be the main focal point of the tree. The ornaments I did use were a mix of ones I found this year and ornaments I used last year.
This is probably my favorite tree I have ever done and it is going to be seriously hard for me to top it next year in my book.
In the living room entryway I reused the fun Christmas tree farm sign I had up last year. I wanted it to look like a mini tree farm so I used old wooden crates and a variety of faux evergreen trees to create the look. I even tied it into the rest of the house by adding in pops of red with the little truck, red wooden beads and the red striped ribbon tied around the trees. To finish it off I draped a pine garland throughout to give it a more completed look. This was probably my most viewed and pinned look on Pinterest!
In our master bedroom I went for a more cozy, neutral Christmas vibe. I did lots of white, cream, and added in a few small pops of that red striped ribbon to tie it into the rest of the house. I really wanted this space to feel like a cozy winter retreat so I snagged two of the Walmart flocked trees and some flocked garland to give it that snowed in vibe.
I moved the large antique window from the entryway into the master and leaned it on the dresser. I used the flocked garland to give it some texture and then accented with the little houses from the Target dollar spot and white ceramic trees from Hobby Lobby. The deer head was a super cheap find from the Guess and Company warehouse sale and I am seriously in love! I have searched high and low for one like it online to share with y’all, but have had no real luck at sourcing one like it. 😭 I also grabbed the large white candle sticks that I normally have in our living room by the fireplace and threw them into the mix.
I generally always keep our bedroom very neutral with lots of white, cream and a light French grey wall paint. It is definitely my happy place in the house. (Well, when it’s clean and not covered in clothes that have spewed from the laundry or my closet🙈).
From this space everyone loved the chunky knit throw! It was actually my big Christmas gift last year from my parents. It is from Artizen Home and is absolutely amazing. If you know me, you know I am a huge blanket person. I have to have a blanket or two with me every night when I sleep and I hardly ever sit on the couch without being curled up in one. This blanket is my favorite because it is heavy, warm, and oh so cozy! It is real merino wool so it does shed a tiny bit. I highly recommend Artizen Home because she uses super high quality yarn that helps keep shedding to a minimum. I will say I don’t let the animals get on it often because it cannot be washed in the washing machine, but besides that I use it all the time! If you are thinking about purchasing one, definitely check out Diane over at Artizen Home!
I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas that was filled with lots of love, blessings, and of course good food. I am already counting down the days until I can decorate for Christmas again and hopefully next year it will be in our forever home! 😍🏡
