Christmas Home Tour - Bronze and Neutral Christmas Tree

 

This week is the annual Holiday Housewalk week organized by Jennifer Rizzo. Each day different bloggers showcased their homes decorated in a variety of holiday styles. Today’s the last day of the tour, but you can visit Jennifer’s blog to see the entire line-up from Monday through today.

If you’re joining the tour for the first time today, you can visit the home before me which is The Yellow Cape Cod, filled with festive style.

Christmas Dining Room

I’m starting today’s tour in the dining room which is located in the center of our home. You’ll find a theme of faux fur, mini trees, and metallic ornaments throughout my Christmas home this year. I recently shared my Christmas table setting with pretty reindeer plates.

I’m gradually changing my home decor back to my decorating roots – a warm, modern country style. I’ve always loved country style and all its variations. Think Country Home magazine.

I’m reconnecting with neutral earth tones which pairs well with Christmas greens.

My new pallet board features small Christmas adornments. The cedar balsam candle smells just like a fresh Christmas tree.

Cozy Christmas Sitting Room

A new area rug provides added warmth in my sitting room, which used to be the dining room. The reindeer pillow and faux fur throw are new finds from HomeGoods. A simple garland hugs my favorite landscape painting.

Miniature ornaments fill a wooden bowl on my new coffee table. My kitties enjoy grabbing an ornament out this bowl from time to time and batting it about the room.

As does the little cow lamp. Sometimes it’s the smallest of decorating touches that bring the greatest pleasure.

In the sitting room, my Christmas mantel takes center stage on an opposite wall.

Faux Fur Family Room

The family room is all cozied up with faux fur pillows and throws. Someone once told me pillows and throws are a grown woman’s version of stuffed animals. I remind my hubby of this every time he questions my pillow purchases. The architectural print features the Paris train station.

Festive wreaths hang in the windows while greens and white berries festoon my French wall clock.

Large tree ornaments hang from inside the window wreaths to provide a little more dimension and interest.

Oh Christmas Tree

The tree is always my favorite part of any Christmas home tour.

Maybe I’m a little like Kevin in the movie Home Alone with his passion for Christmas trees.

  1. Your holiday home is as warm and welcoming as always! I am with you on returning to my country decor roots. When you do what you truly love, it definitely shows. Merry Christmas!

  2. Jennifer- can i just cozy up in your family room with all those pillows and warm throws!! love all your trees….especially the paper chain. makes me think of when I was a child and made those with my family for our tree. Your tour was just so lovely…all of it. happy holidays.

  3. Very pretty. Where did you get your flocked tree? It is so hard to find a really nice flocked tree, but you seem to have succeeded!

  4. Just beautiful !!! WOWOWOWOWOW …. thank you so much for sharing !! I may have missed your remarks about the tree skirting… where did you get the white fur “skirt” under your tree?? Is it a rug??

    • Thank you, Terri! Yes, it’s a faux fur rug that I found at HomeGoods. I prefer to use it instead of a tree skirt because it spreads out further. 🙂

      • Great !! Thanks so much .. It’s perfect……What a great idea for under the tree!! I apologize for asking another question.. but was wondering where you purchased the round coffee table from ?? If you posted about it I guess I missed it …. Im looking for a new “round” coffee table….. this one is gorgeous!!

  5. Your Christmas home looks beautiful. Adore all your touches around the dining area and how you even add a touch to your clock.

    All speaks you.

  6. Marlene Stephenson says:

    i want to come over and set and gaze at your tree and cuddle in one of those chairs, it is so pretty.

  7. Tracy L. Coleman says:

    Love your Boxed Gingerbread Houses! I assume the lids lift off to put a gift in~

    Merry & Bright

  8. Your Christmas tour is amazing, as I knew it would be. I’ve followed you for a long time and the changes and upgrades you’ve made are so impressive. So happy you feel that you have come around to your heart and soul decor. We all need to find that place. I have to admit that I’m still not there, but am working towards it as I replace the old with new(er) items that actually speak to me. I keep reminding myself that decor, as is life, an ongoing process.
    Also, just for your followers’ information, while the faux fur rugs can be expensive, you can purchase the same faux fur at fabric shops by the yard and spend as much or little as you need. This is my first year with faux fur under my tree and I love it.

  9. Everything as always, is just beautiful! Your home is so warm and welcoming, you have done an incredible job! xo

  10. So very beautiful. I have enjoyed all your different styles over the years. You amaze me!

  11. I love the cover on your couch! Where did you find it?

    • Hi Debra!
      The cover is 4 matching bedspreads that I found on sale at Bed, Bath, and Beyond. I was lucky to find matching ones all on sale. I’ve also used dropcloths which are less expensive but they’re a little scratchy.

  12. Beautiful as always, Jennifer! I have a lot of throw blankets and pillows also and love them for cozying up chairs, sofas, beds… you name it. I also found that IKEA has some great faux fur pillow covers this year! I like swapping covers rather than buying new pillows when possible.

  13. It’s always a treat to tour your beautiful home Jennifer… especially at Christmas.
    Love it all and the flocked Christmas tree is so perfect!

  14. Your home looks like a Christmas wonderland! The Christmas tree is gorgeous, as well as the unique ornaments on it. It’s definitely the central point of the room. Pillows, throws and garlands are breathtaking. I also love the vintage furniture that looks lovely when combined with the modern country style. Everything’s so inspiring!

  15. I’ve looked at so many Christmas home tours but yours really struck a chord with me. So warm and tangible while many of the others just come off as forced and competitive! Love the browns and creamy colors mixed with all the scrumptious fur.

    • Thanks so much, Jill! I’m trying to enjoy winter this year and my Christmas decor ended up reflecting my need for cozy warmth to help endure our cold and snowy winters. So far it’s working – but we’ll see how I feel in February. LOL. Thanks for your kind words. I truly appreciate it!
