Simple holiday greenery, twinkling lights, and lots of rich texture come together to create this cozy Christmas home tour for the holidays.
Today, not only am I so excited to share our own holiday home tour, but I’m thrilled to be teaming up with a wonderful group of bloggers to bring you all sorts of holiday decor inspiration through the Very Merry Christmas Home Tour. Linked up at the bottom of this post you’ll find 16 other beautiful home tours filled to the brim with holiday inspiration.
Our Holiday home tour is always one of my favourite posts to share each year. Filled with rich textures, twinkling lights and loads of holiday nostalgia, I don’t think our home ever feels cozier than when it’s all decked out for the holidays!
Sure, Christmas is going to look a little different this year, and I know there’s so much we’re going to miss about it all, but we fully intend to make the most of it. We’ve got some big plans for our holiday season this year – nothing too extravagant really, just a whole lot more time to snuggle in and enjoy the simple things, making some special holiday memories with our little family.
I think you’ll find that this year’s holiday home tour is definitely a reflection of that – a cozy simplicity with some nostalgic touches that truly make our home feel more cozy + welcoming than ever.
So, grab yourself a warm cup of coffee and come on in…
Our entryway is always one of my favourite spots to decorate in our home. I’d always wanted a stair railing to drape with garland – I just think it brings that quintessential holiday charm.
Our entryway opens right into our living room, with our kitchen and dining area tucked in behind. I think having one big open space makes decorating for the holidays so much easier because each little piece of decor can visually carry through to all of the different spaces.
I think the key to cozy holiday decor (or cozy decor in general really) is creating lots of layers with various textures, patterns and even lighting. Though much of this space is still quite neutral (aside from those gorgeous holiday plaids), it still feels rich and cozy with all of the warm fabrics, lighting and greenery layered in.
This little corner has become my very favourite this year. I LOVE all of the cozy fabrics and the way those more traditional holiday colours pop against it all.
There are just so many pretty little details to take in throughout this one little corner.
And of course, that sparkling tree with it’s pearl bead garland and mercury glass ornaments is pretty special too (you can read more about this year’s tree and how I decorated it here).
I always love the way the sun pours in through these windows each evening as it sets. It always makes for such a pretty view while I cook dinner. And here’s the view from our living room.
A bit of greenery and a few pops of those traditional holiday colours help to tie our kitchen and dining spaces in with our living room, making it all feel like one big, cozy space.
The decor continues into the back of our house as well – through our mudroom and into our back family room.
We’re in the process of finishing our basement at the moment (you can check it out here if you’re curious), which means we’re having to rework a few other spaces around the house. Our back family room is feeling rather empty at the moment as we start moving furniture down to the basement, so I didn’t add much in here.
But I can never resist decorating this beautiful old piano.
And that’s it friends! I hope you enjoyed this year’s holiday home tour and found some inspiration to help make your home feel warm + cozy this Christmas season as well!
