See my modern and colorful holiday home decor on this Christmas home tour
Hey y’all, many of you who follow on Instagram know that we moved into a new house earlier this year. I have not done a full home tour anywhere, but since I got all our Christmas decor up I though it would be fun to do a holiday home tour today. I’m excited to show you a little bit of the interior I’ve been working on since we moved in.
I did a video of our Christmas decor so you could take a peek into our home. You can watch it below or on YouTube here if it won’t load below for some reason.
Over the last several years, I’ve slowly moved toward holiday decor that fits into our regular decor/colors naturally. That means there’s not a lot of red in sight in my house. Red is not a color I’ve ever loved, especially not in big doses. Since I decided to get a taller Christmas tree for our high ceilinged living room, and also embraced totally non traditional Christmas colors. My Christmas tree (affiliate link)is now decked out in blue, pink, teal, silver and aqua. I love how a tree in these colors makes my turquoise ottomans look right at home.

I also sewed up some quick pillow covers to match the colors I used on the tree. The joy and large graphic snowflake pillows were embellished with heat transfer vinyl, and the embroidered one was done with my embroidery machine (affiliate link). I just chose a snowflake pattern that came with my machine and embroidered it in all the thread colors I had that matched the tree colors.
The poinsettia I bought needed just a little more height to look balanced, so I asked the Coach if he could make me a simple plant stand. I love what he made so much that I want another for the plant I have on the front porch! Tip for the poinsettia – I took the gold foil pot cover that the plant came with and just turned it inside out to show the silver side, to better match the rest of my Christmas decorations. And these Christmas stockings that I made last year fit right in with the rest of the decor; they match this house like they were made for it.
In the kitchen, I like to keep things simple. A little holiday tablescape perks up our kitchen island. I staged my Nativity set on a cake plate I picked up second hand and I added quilt batting snow and bottle brush trees.
I also made an ornament swag from a garland of ornaments – I just doubled it back on itself and wired the two halves together using floral wire. Then I wired it to the cabinet pulls of the cabinet above our stove. This is an empty cabinet so we don’t ever open it, otherwise I’d have had to figure out a different way to secure the swag.
