Cozy Neutral Christmas Home Tour

| |

Come see our cozy neutral Christmas home tour and get inspired with minimal but beautiful ways to add a little extra holiday twinkle to your home. 

This year I decided my Christmas décor was going to be neutral and simple. If you’ve been a long time reader, you know that simple is like my middle name! But this year – I went extra simple. Now don’t worry – this neutral Christmas home tour still has lots of that special Christmas feel throughout our home – just less stuff. 🙂 And I am so honored to be joining my friend, Krista from the Happy Housie and so many other talented bloggers for this lovely Christmas Home tour edition of Seasonal Simplicity. If you are visiting from Krista’s, welcome! I’m so happy to have you visit our home in Colorado.

So let’s get this tour started with the front porch.

Christmas on the Porch

Usually, like 99% of the time, I am a woman that thrives on symmetry. But I figure if there’s ever been a year to through symmetry to the wind – it’s 2020. So for the first time ever I decided to hang my garland above our door asymmetrical. And you know what? It kinda surprised me how much I liked it. Yep – you read that correctly. 🙂

If we didn’t have the glass storm door, I could have hung it a little more swag-like. But you got to work with what you got. My favorite feature of this porch isn’t the garland though – it’s my short little 3ft tree. I snagged my real fir tree at Home Depot a few days ago and I knew it would be perfect for the porch. 

I even kept my little fir trees decor simple too. Just a string of twinkling lights and I call this little guy splendid. He may be coming inside in a few days though – cause I really want to enjoy him more. And he will give our home that fresh tree scent! (yes!)

PORCH SOURCES: fresh wreath | real tree | basket | outdoor rug | doormat (no longer available) | lanterns | garland

Now it’ time to make our way inside to the living room. I don’t share this space often in home tours because it’s one of my least favorite rooms in our home. There’s so many things I want to DIY to this space (It’s mainly our outdated fireplace -well and we desperately need a new couch. Oh and there’s a half-wall I want to remove too. It’s a long list!) but I lack the time and budget. Mostly the budget! So I decided to just embrace what I have, give thanks for a home and decorate it the best I could. Having said all of that – welcome to our living room…

Christmas Living Room

Lookie there, I did it again – asymmetrical garland. Once I hung it outside, I had to play with the look in here too. 🙂 The Silent Night art is one of my favorite holiday items. It’s always been one of my favorite Christmas hymns.  

I don’t know why, but it didn’t occur to me to take more pictures of our living room without the Christmas lights on. And once I realized, I was running out of both daylight and battery power on my camera. So there are a few shots without the lights but most have them on.

There is a big treat in this home tour though! I actually got Charlie to sit still long enough for me to take her pic. Usually she’s constantly moving and for a dog that’s so dark – it’s hard enough to get clear, crisp photos of her. So I was super happy when she worked with me! 🙂

My little mini table trees have made an appearance again! I placed them on our sideboard and they give this side of the room the nicest soft glow. 

One of my favorite features of this area is our gallery wall. I put this up last year (I think) and I love the way it creates a focal point for the wall and kinda hides the tv. 🙂 

Since our fireplace is in the corner, it’s super hard to place the tree next to it. And the only other corner I can use is in the back behind the couch. So, this is where I placed our tree. The trees decor is a little less than I had planned. I ordered some new ornaments and a wood garland. One of the ornaments arrived broke and the wood garland never arrived. They said I didn’t order it (which I did and paid for it) and once that issue was resolved – they were all sold out. Ugh. So I’m going with a really, really simple tree this year! 🙂 

And here it is with the lights on…

To compliment my neutral tree look, I decided to go with white and gold wrapping paper. Lovin’ the white with the gold trees!
