Grab your hot chocolate, or coffee and join me for the tour of my home!
I honestly started getting ideas for the direction I wanted to take my home after Christmas last year. While I loved my Christmas decor last year, I felt like it didn’t fit the style of my home or decor. I literally removed most of my normal decor out because it didn’t fit well with my Christmas decor last year. This year, I wanted it to be more cohesive with my regular decor. I went for more of a vintage style Christmas this year, and I was able to incorporate most of my normal decor.
My entryway is decorated in a snowy white vintage theme. I added a feather boa to a foam wreath for a fluffy, wintry effect. I also added some angel wings made with antique lace. I tucked in an angel and a crown into the greenery. Of course, I must have as many chippy pieces as possible in my decor. I think I have it covered in the entryway.
I continued with the snowy vintage theme in my living room. I also used crowns and angels here too. I added some silver trays and mercury glass for a little sparkle. Instead of a large tree in our living room, I used a smaller tree and put it in an urn to give it a little height, and grouped it with a smaller tree in a crock. I also kept with the angel theme by adding angel wings in front of the two trees.
My home is open concept, and so it makes me even more mindful of keeping things cohesive. I’ve continued with a few touches of red, sparkle from silver, and chippy vintage pieces. I added some Christmas decor above the cabinets and on my hutch on the wall. I love how festive it looks and how it all ties into the rest of the house.
This little hutch is so fun to decorate. I found these cute vintage looking candy moulds that were perfect for the kitchen.
Just on the other side of our kitchen is a space that I thought was kind of awkward. I put this antique chest, and shelves above it for much-needed extra kitchen storage. It’s turned into one of my favorite spaces. I’ve used more silver, ironstone, marmalade jars, and bottle brush trees to make this area festive for Christmas.
An area you can spy around the corner from this spot is where my antique armoire sits. I loved decorating the top of it for Christmas.
The top is decorated with a vintage suitcase, a birdcage on top, a large acrylic snowflake, and one of the cute Wal-Mart trees tucked into a silver trophy. I also used clear thread to tie more acrylic snowflakes to the front of the mirror.
I think adding the snowflakes is such a fun touch. Those were only a dollar at Dollar Tree, and I have scattered them throughout our home.
I hope you’ve enjoyed the tour of my home for Christmas. I’ll share more with you in another blog post soon!
