Welcome, welcome to this years French Farmhouse Christmas Home Tour!

French Farmhouse Christmas Home Tour. Christmas in the living room.

To be completely fair, I’m going to warn you that today I am going to be like “that” home guest that stays way too long . . . except this time I’m going to keep you in my house for too long.  Get comfortable šŸ˜‰

If you are okay with loads of pictures, plop right down and let me walk you through my entry way, living room and master bathroom all decked out for the Holidays.  And trust me – I saved the best for last.

Being part of the Jennifer Rizzo Holiday Housewalk is still like a dream for me.

Holiday Housewalk

I’ve been inspired by the Christmas homes in this tour for years and to be among these ladies who are design pros is very humbling.  If you just clicked over from Duke Manor Farm, I welcome you!  Her style is so crisp, clean and beautiful!  To get the most of this tour, start HERE at day 1, but you can finish out today’s tour by visiting the home which I will announce at the end of my tour.  We all owe a huge thanks to Jen Rizzo for pulling us together and Wayfair (one of my personal favs) for helping us by providing some products you’ll see in our homes.  I’ll have a master source list at the bottom of this post for your reference.

ENTRY WAY

If you were to come upon my front door,  here is the first thing you would see.

Of course, I cleaned up the shoes and coats from 4 kids for you.  Wasn’t that nice?!

This year I decided to embrace simplicity in my Christmas decorating.  I am calling it a “French Farmhouse Christmas” because of the few French accents you’ll find throughout the rooms, mixed in with fresh greenery, whites, and touches of a soft French blue.

And of course, I embraced all things vintage, chippy and DIY.

It is pretty much the Christmas I’ve always wanted to create.

As much as I loved last years “Cottage Christmas” with its bold reds and fresh greens, this color palette soothes my soul.

My goal was to make each space cozy and inviting, without feeling cluttered and too busy.

I’ve infused as many personal touches as well, like these clay stars my daughter and I made last year.

You’ll notice many fresh greens displayed around our home, and it makes our house smell heavenly.

My dear husband made this rolling cart for our deck this summer.   We had fun designing and building it together, and I knew all along that it would land right here for the winter.  I love to switch furniture around from room to room to freshen things up for free.

All my vases were thrift store finds, and I made the stocking from drop cloth.  The only thing bought in this space was this dough bowl from Hobby Lobby and these plastic blue ornaments.  It is a good thing the ornaments are plastic, since they serve as throwing balls quite often from my 2 year old boy.

LIVING ROOM

I worked the hardest on the living room this year and made a few bigger design changes, which I am really pleased with.

My biggest change was with the rug . . . just promise me you won’t ask my husband how many rugs we’ve been through in here.

THIS fluffy beauty came from Rugs USA, and I finally got one that is big enough for the space – an 11 x 14.  I knew it needed to be white to go with our latest floor refinish and to suit my style better.  We really love it and my kids enjoy playing on something that is soft and fluffy.

And yes, that is a branch screwed to our wall.  Isn’t it cute?!!

French Farmhouse Christmas Home Tour. Christmas in the living room.

I found these mittens HERE, and they were so perfectly adorable I had to display them.

French Farmhouse Christmas Home Tour. Christmas in the living room.

I store this tassel throw blanket away during the warmer months, and we all welcome it back when it gets cold again.  It’s the best snuggle blanket in the world.

Now let me take you over to my current favorite corner in our house.

French Farmhouse Christmas Home Tour. Christmas in the living room.

It all started the moment I fell in love with this desk from Wayfair.  Oh my, she is a white chippy beauty.

French Farmhouse Christmas Home Tour. Christmas in the living room.

I pull up my thrift store makeover chair and plop a DIY grain sack pillow on it, and it all feels like it was meant to be.

French Farmhouse Christmas Home Tour. Christmas in the living room.

A little French, a little Farmhouse, and a lot of blue, white and wood tones.  Perfection in my book.  This darling stocking came from an antique store in my hometown.

I found myself really wanting a desk in the living room so I could move my work closer to where my kids spend most their time.  I have a desk in the kitchen but I get really tired of being in the kitchen 99% of the day.

I also store some of my favorite reads in the drawers.

P.S.  I’m in that top magazine.  3 times.

Blush.

Let me tell you the story behind this beautiful Nativity.

French Farmhouse Christmas Home Tour. Christmas in the living room.

I literally walked into an antique store hoping I would come across a white Nativity.  It was like the clouds parted as I turned a corner and there she was in her miniature white glory . . . just waiting for me for only $8.00!!!

It was a happy shopping day.

French Farmhouse Christmas Home Tour. Christmas in the living room.

On our white banister I hung some faux frosted garland.  I was going for the real stuff but no one seemed to carry it 2 weeks before Thanksgiving.  The nerve.

I found one knitted stocking at our local craft fair from a sweet gal.  She told me she does custom orders so if you are interested you can email Carolee at 5ccheelis(at)gmail(dot)com.  Tell her I sent you.  It is the prettiest knit stocking I’ve ever come across.

French Farmhouse Christmas Home Tour. Christmas in the living room.

The rest of my banister has my drop cloth stockings I made last year.

Now brace yourself as I show you our Christmas tree.  It’s a little unconventional.

French Farmhouse Christmas Home Tour. Christmas in the living room.

We had a wonderful time as a family heading to the mountains to pick a tree.  It’s my hands down favorite tradition.

Though not a far cry from a Charlie Brown Christmas tree, I treasure this beauty.  So much so, I plopped her in my favorite chippy white bucket.

All it needed was a few white ornaments, while it eagerly waits for gifts to be placed under it.

This tree pairs nicely with its surroundings.

French Farmhouse Christmas Home Tour. Christmas in the living room.

I just finished sewing a slipcover from bleached drop cloth for my Grandmothers favorite French Provincial chair.  It was not an easy feat, but with the help of Miss Mustard Seed videos, I managed through it.

I found the door, quilt, pillow and marble top table at an antique store.  I made the pom pom wreath last year which I share the tutorial.

French Farmhouse Christmas Home Tour. Christmas in the living room.

I’ve become a pro at finding goodies at antique stores.  I always talk the desk person down on the price as well.  It’s a skill I’ve learned through the years šŸ˜‰

French Farmhouse Christmas Home Tour. Christmas in the living room.

However, that sweet little stool I grabbed at a thrift store for $5.00!  Slipcover and all.  After I safely purchased it, I ran out of that store like I’d won the lottery.

A bit more on our Charlie Brown tree, I love the simplicity of it but realized we should have one to light up at night.  We just recently put up our faux flocked tree in a corner and hung our grain sack countdown bags on the tree.  I didn’t add much else because each bag has a “25 Days of Christ” ornament which we will hang throughout December.  I can’t wait to see it fill up and I think it is a tradition my children will treasure.

Over to our Joss and Main Felicity sofa, I covered it with this lovely striped throw from Wayfair.  I love to toss a blanket on there to lengthen the amount of time between slipcover washing’s.   Yes it gets bunched up with kids, but it still does the job and I love the look.

Some blue and white DIY pillows was enough cozy French Farmhouse for me.  White pillow tutorial HERE.  Blue pillow tutorial HERE.

I brought in this rolling side table from our Deck Makeover project as well.

I filled it with some vintage finds.

Now let’s chat about the mantel.

If you want more details, I shared a post specifically about this years mantel HERE, where I also shared the tutorial for the wood stick star.

I added a variety of mixed vintage stockings, all of which I made from either drop cloth, hand towels, linen fabric, or vintage grain sacks.

Lastly in the living room on our butcher block table, I did a simple cozy scene with my growing collection of vintage blue pots, greenery, candles in jars, and wood candle holders gifted from a dear friend.

MASTER BATHROOM

Now come on in and view the space that saves my sanity.  It’s all about a soak with candle light and a good read.

Am I right?

When I was at The Vintage Whites Market this year, I found a lady with a stand full of unique purple vintage bottles.  I helped myself to a bag full.  When I told my friends they would be perfect for my Christmas decor, I swear I saw a cringe behind their “Oh ya.  That would be so pretty” statement šŸ˜‰

Purple?  Christmas?

Heck yes, I say!

French Farmhouse Christmas Home Tour. Christmas in the Master Bathroom.

Purple and green were actually our wedding colors, so the combo seemed a no brainer for me.

But of course, a little aqua and green never hurt anyone either.

My vintage bottle obsession definitely came in handy this Christmas.  By the way, I never buy them for too much $$$.  I have four kids, so I don’t want to feel put out when (not if) they break.

I am also a firm believer in letting mother nature do most the talking in your decor.  I’ve used the lower branches of our tree trimmings all around the house.

I also love the natural smells of Mrs. Meyers soaps.  I’ve stocked up on their Holiday scents from my all time favorite place to buy my cleaning supplies, Grove Collaborative  They have the best prices and variety you’ll find on chemically safe products.  I’ve been subscribed for 3 months now and I am so hooked.

I even shaped an old wire hanger into a wreath and tied in some fresh greenery.

I love this simple wreath in all it’s quirkiness so much.  It’s moved around from place to place so I can enjoy it everywhere.

That’s a wrap folks!

I’m sharing my bedroom later this week with you as part of a Balsam Hill collaboration, but I hope you’ve enjoyed seeing Christmas take shape in our home.

I truly believe in finding and creating beauty all around you.  I believe it takes time to curate the home of your dreams.  I believe you should always take the opportunity to enjoy your surroundings no matter the stage of life you are in.  I hope to always create a home where my family feels comfort and love.

I applaud you for sticking with me this long!  I hope you’ll go check out the Holiday Housewalk of my dear friend Kristen from Ella Claire.  I owe much to this sweet gal.  Over a year ago she encouraged me to contribute to her site, and she gave me the confidence and courage I needed to take on this world of blogging.  She is a kind and genuine person, and I know without a shadow of a doubt that you will adore her home!

I wish you all a beautiful Christmas!  I’d absolutely love to hear what you think, your favorite parts of the tour, and any other thoughts you might have to share with me.  Hearing from my readers is what gives me the drive to keep going!

Thank you!

  1. Lori at Designthusiasm shared your bathroom on her Weekly Top 10 featuring Holiday Bathrooms and I just love your style and the warmth of your home. I will give her a big Hi-five for pointing me in your direction! I’m signing up for your posts! Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

  2. I just took the tour of your beautiful home. So peaceful and inspiring I too appreciate the beauty in simplicity and you absolutely achieved it. You are right when you say “I believe you should always take the opportunity to enjoy your surroundings no matter the stage of life you are in.” Thank you for the peaceful tour just what I needed before the hectic Christmas festivities. Have a wonderful Christmas.

  3. This was amazing!!! I loved when you said,
    ” Make it yours at any stage of your life”!!!! Great job beauty….

  4. I am now officially in love!! In love with your home, that is! It’s so pretty and ethereal yet I love the juxtoposition of the “pretty” against the more rustic … the tree branches holding the mitts, the chipped buckets, the warm pine (or maybe it’s maple) pieces of furniture. It is true eye candy! Merry Christmas from Ontario, Canada.

  5. So pretty Cami! I like this new furniture arrangement in your living room. It looks like it was meant to be! šŸ˜‰ Love that desk too– totally doesn’t look new!

  6. I just love how we are all decorating our homes for the holidays, yet they all feel so unique and special!
    Your tour was no exception, it’s beautiful… filled with so many pretty vignettes and lovely character!
    I’m a Grove Collab lover too. I’m all about the Peppermint right now. Yum!
    Merry Christmas Cami!

  7. I love your tree! The whole house is gorgeous, but seriously nothing beats a Charlie Brown tree. We have one, too. With unmatched, not-color-coordinated completely sentimental ornaments.

  8. Cami, I love your soft whites, blues and fresh greenery everywhere. I especially like your Book of Mormon on your desk. We have that in common. I live in Millville, Utah on 2 acres. It is up north by Logan. Such a peaceful place to live. We have a park in our back yard called Johnson’s Grove. I will send photos some time soon. We have beautiful white snow everywhere. I am a huge fan of decorating my home too.
