Welcome to my Christmas Home Tour of 2019! We don’t go overboard with decorating for Christmas, but I do love to add pops of Christmas where I can!
Our big tree stands in the living room, and it is the main focus of this room’s Christmas décor. I used some faux flowers and leaf fillers in a vase on the coffee table and added a lot of DIY decorations to the tree. I love using blue for Christmas to tie in with the rest of my home décor and it is so unique.
Our dining room and living room flow into one another. It is two bright and airy rooms, and I love spending time here. You can see more details on my Christmas table settings here and here. I decorated the sideboard with a couple of mini Christmas trees and kept it simple too.
This room is decorated for my kids and by my kids. Don’t you love our Advent Calendar? I snatched these houses on a sale a couple of years ago, numbered 1 – 24. I either display them on this side table, or we decorate one tree with them. We put scripture verses in the little houses and open one every night, and then we transfer them to the wall. I love this tradition, and I think it is precious to share the true meaning of Christmas with my sons in this way.
My DIY scatter cushions are looking very pretty in the family room.
Although we don’t use our fireplace at Christmas time – it is a lovely place to decorate for Christmas. On the one side, we have a small laser-cut tree with houses and a star. And on the other, some snowmen are rocking it out in the ox-wagon Marinus built while still at school. My cousin made these adorable snowmen for my sons, and they love playing with Olaf!
Lastly, we have the kids’ tree. We built this tree as a summer Christmas tree alternative eight years ago, and we now use it for the kids. It is easy to assemble and child-friendly as they can just slide the decorations onto the dowel branches. I just put on the lights and allow them to decorate as they please. I don’t correct them, and I don’t move the ornaments after they are done. This tree is not perfect by any means, and we can surely do a lot to improve it and make it look glamourous. But I think it is perfect just the way it is!
Do you like our Christmas Home Tour? Do you prefer to go all out and decorate every inch of space you can find or do you also keep your home more simple for Christmas?
Take care till 2020
I want to wish you a very blessed Christmas! Whether you spend it with family, friends or alone, may you always remember that we are celebrating Christmas because our saviour was born!
