Neutral and Natural Christmas Home Tour

I’m sure all of you are in the thick of getting everything holiday ready right now. I’ve just finished up wrapping gifts and am looking forward to baking tomorrow. I wanted to wrap up this year with our neutral and natural Christmas home tour. As I usually do, our home is decorated in neutrals with little bits of decor sprinkled in a few areas. It’s such a busy and sometimes overwhelming time of the year so I like to keep things on the simpler side. I’m sure your home is all decked out already, but definitely save any ideas you find inspiring for next year!

This was actually the last area in my home to get decorated for Christmas. I tossed it together on a whim with what was leftover. It feels very Christmas in the woods and I love it. The mercury glass and ceramic trees are a collection I’ve slowly grown over the years from Homegoods, Amazon, and World Market. I have my diffuser in this metal house I picked up from Michaels last year. It looks so fun with the mist puffing out of the chimney.

The garland is a mix of two old pieces of garland, preserved rust colored eucalyptus, some dried florals, and dead clippings from the flowerbed. The feel is rustic, foraged, and perfectly imperfect.

STYLING TIP: If you’re placing garland over a mirror, place it so that the garland overlaps the edge of the mirror. This will make it reflect off the mirror and feel more lush.

This is technically the dining room, but I’m including it here because there’s no other decor in there other than my little Christmas trees. I placed them in my crocks this year and adore the vintage touch.

STYLING TIP: Place smaller Christmas trees in larger pots for added height and weight.

Living Room

Our living room has the most Christmas decor, but I still keep it to a minimum so it doesn’t feel overwhelming. Just the tree, fireplace, and coffee table.

After putting up the garland in the entry, I added more of the dead clippings from the flowerbed to the mantle garland. I’ve been doing this asymetrical garland for years now and still love the casual look.

STYLING TIP: If you want a full and lush garland but don’t have enough garland to fill your entire mantle, do an asymetrical swag. I’m using three mismatched pieces of garland here for a fuller look.

That first picture of the kitchen is from last year, but it looks exactly the same this year. Just a simple wreath on the hood.

Our dining nook gets a little more decor with my favorite Christmas village houses and neutral bottle brush trees displayed on the open shelves. Bottle brush trees are another collection I’ve been growing any time I see neutral ones at Homegoods.

You don’t need much to make your bedroom feel special this time of the year. I added the prettiest plaid pillows that will take me all the way from Fall through Winter, and a wreath over the bed.

STYLING TIP: If you keep real or faux flowers on your nighstand or dresser, swap them out for magnolia or evergreens for the holidays.

I always want to go all out on our exterior, but never get it done! Just not enough time or energy. This year I added battery operated candles to our windows. It was something I saw on a house I adored as a child and recreated this year. Super simple, but so charming!

    Beautiful decor. Your refresh on the window wreaths with the addition of the candles this year are perfect. They warm up the appearance of the house and create a welcoming invite to what’s inside. Which I’m loving the crock pots and trees. 😍Merry Christmas 🎄

    Your home looks beautiful and, in my opinion, just the right amount of Christmas decor. Inspired by your window candles and magnolia wreaths for next year.
    Merry Christmas!
