Love taking a peek at other people’s home decor? Don’t miss this Christmas holiday home tour featuring whimsical Christmas gnomes.
Welcome to my Christmas holiday home tour! I am so glad to be sharing my home as a part of Krista’s Seasonal Simplicity Holiday Home Tour. The tour features over 45 homes – a handful each day. I am grateful to be sharing as part of day one.
If you’re following the tour and have joined me from Deeply Southern Home, welcome! I may be across the country in the mountain west, but Leslie’s southern style is so inspiring!
Christmas Holiday Home Tour
Today I will be sharing a peek at my entry, kitchen, dining and family room, as well as two bedrooms. I’m sharing a lot of photos, so grab a cup of cocoa, turn up the holiday tunes and join me as I give you a peek at what the Christmas holidays look like in my home this year.
This year I’ve incorporated whimsical gnomes throughout my home. They’re a nod to my Swedish heritage and bring such a touch of fun to the space.
Christmas Holiday Home Tour – Porch
Christmas Holiday Home Tour – Entryway
I like to keep the entryway in my home decorated with high contrast neutrals and this year is no exception, but my easy 30 minute Christmas advent calendar provides a single pop of color right when you walk in the door.
I added a new black and white tree farm sign to the gallery wall and decorated with a tall skinny pine.
The tree is filled with little gnomes, furry foxes and ornaments that I’ve dressed up with Scandinavian holiday phrases in black vinyl.
Across the entry on the door of the coat closet, I’ve hung this easy-to-make faux fur holiday wreath.
I dressed up a simple pine garland with picks and ribbon. It pulls the eye right down the hallway into the great room.
Christmas Holiday Home Tour – Kitchen
I like a kitchen free of clutter so rather than adding a bunch of decor, I simply added wreaths to the cabinet doors and swapped out the stencil and cookie jar. Small wreaths can get crazy expensive. The wreaths I’ve used are actually ornaments that cost about $3 a piece.
Christmas Holiday Home Tour – Dining
In the dining room, I’ve set up a hot cocoa and cookie bar and added a few simple decorations on and around the table.
Christmas Holiday Home Tour – Family Room
The family room is truly where we spend most of the time. I couldn’t resist hanging one of my favorite DIY wreaths up on the large cabinet that takes up one wall.
The focal point of the room is definitely the mantel. You can read all about my red and white Christmas mantelI shared the details of my red and white Christmas mantel a couple of weeks ago. It was the first spot in the entire house I decorated.
I have a small collection of wood Christmas trees on display on the mantel and in my bedroom, while my white Christmas village houses are hanging out on the shelf under the tv.
I’d love to call my tree a “Scandinavian Christmas Tree,” but a true European design would be simpler. I love all the things and I’ve placed them on my tree! It’s filled with gnomes, little reindeer, bells and (of course) a bunch of gnomes!
Christmas Holiday Home Tour – Master Bedroom
It’s important that my bedroom be as cozy as the rest of the cottage. I’ve added a few touches around the room here and there, but the true focal point is the bed, where I’ve added some greenery, a felt garland and some fun holiday bedding.
Over on the dresser, I have a few more wooden trees and some candles. I’ve kept it simple on purpose so the top of the dresser remains uncluttered.
In the corner I have a pretty little tree decorated simply with embroidered snowflakes and a few wood ornaments. It’s also where my advent gnome holds court.
Christmas Holiday Home Tour – Guest Room
The holidays are a time when I host the largest number of guests. Last year I updated my guest room from a single queen to two twin beds. It works perfectly for friends, as well as my nieces and nephews when they come to stay.
It’s also the only room in the house not decorated with traditional holiday color. Some of the items were purchased at the store, but the llama themed holiday pillows were inexpensive and easy to make.
Thank you so much for coming for a quick peek at my Christmas holiday home tour. I am so glad to have you.
