Today I’m excited to be sharing a tour of our English cottage inspired home, all decorated for Christmas! Christmas is my absolute favorite holiday, and there’s nothing more special than the twinkle of lights all throughout our home on dark winter evenings.
In years past I’ve broken up my tours, sharing different rooms in different blog posts. This year I thought I’d share it all at once! I have lots of Christmas inspiration for you here today!
Our home is so different than last year, with added beams in the entry, a new stain on the original 1930’s floors as well as newly painted millwork. It was fun to decorate with the changes, but it was a challenge at times as well!
I’m happy with how it all came together, and I hope today’s post gets you excited for Christmas decorating if you haven’t started already. So grab something warm to drink, get cozy, and enjoy the tour!
Cottage Style Christmas Tour – Entryway
Like I said before, our entryway looks a lot different than it did last year! My husband installed reclaimed beams to the ceiling as well as the wall, and I love the character they add to that space.
I decided to combine a cedar garland with some faux eucalyptus, and I love the old fashioned feel that it has. I hung a eucalyptus wreath along with some vintage ice skates on the number hooks, and I also set out an antique snow shovel that my husband got me for Christmas last year. Isn’t it neat?
I love using antique items that fit the season throughout my holiday decor. Another favorite item that I used in our entryway is the vintage door hanger on the closet door. This was actually my grandmothers, and I love the rusty bells and the beautiful angel tucked inside this cedar wreath.
I continued the theme of eucalyptus and cedar in my thrifted three tiered basket, and simply tied some ribbon to make it feel a bit more festive.
Cottage Style Christmas Tour – Living Room and Sunroom
For my fireplace mantel this year, I layered two cedar garlands together and then added this beautiful eucalyptus garland that I found on Amazon. I was skeptical when I found it at such a great price point, but when it arrived I was pleasantly surprised! I love the way it looks layered with cedar.
The shelves next to my fireplace are filed with vintage wintery treasures, from antique ice skates to leather sleigh bells. I love tucking real cedar stems everywhere I can when I decorate.
With my new living room layout, I wasn’t sure where I was going to put my Christmas tree this year. I ended up taking out my stacked vintage baskets and setting up the tree in the corner, and I think I like it here.
Our living room feels cozy with the chairs moved forward, and it’s definitely better for conversation. When everyone in my family comes over though, we may move the chairs back into the corners for more walking room.
I kept my tree pretty simple, decorating it with pine cones that look like mercury glass and various vintage ornaments I’ve collected over the years. I added lots of ribbon as well, and I also made my own banners from paper printed with “Merry Christmas” and “Joy to the World”.
In the opposite corner of the tree, I hung my Grandfather’s Christmas artwork. I love using vintage items throughout my decor, and I thought this print went so well withe the old fashioned feel I was going for!
The sunroom is pretty similar to last year. Since our piano is out there, I added some thrifted musical instruments to the shelves with cedar tucked all around. I also decorated the sunroom tree with my DIY hymn garland, as well as some thrifted brass instruments.
Cottage Style Christmas Tour – Dining Room
As you move into the dining room from the living area, one of my favorite features in our 1930’s home is the archway that connects the two rooms. This year I decided to layer eucalyptus garland with cedar, and I love the way it looks!
For the dining space, I tucked cedar wherever I could. I love adding it the lantern with some pretty ribbon, as well as above our corner cupboard and my cutting board display.
I also added cedar to our DIY shelves, and I love the way it looks with my Grandmother’s old Santa molds nestled here and there.
I also used cedar on the buffet table, along with a vintage cake mold, some ornaments and my collection of bottle brush Christmas trees. I hung some ribbon on our window mirror, along with a “Noel” banner that I made. I love all the layers and the vintage feel that the ribbon adds!
Cottage Style Christmas Tour – Kitchen
I did things a little different in our kitchen this year for Christmas, and added some greenery around the chalkboard we have hanging in there. I mixed in some eucalyptus, and I also added some orange slices that I cut and dried.
I made a swag for the window above the sink with a mixture of real and faux greens, and simply tied it with a ribbon. I also added a few miniature Christmas trees on the countertops, and I placed them in old ironstone bowls to give them a more vintage feel.
On the far wall behind the fridge, I hung some greenery with lights strung throughout. I love the way the stone accent wall looks at night when the twinkle lights are on! I also filled the basket above the fridge with brown paper packages, all tied up with string.
On the wall above my peg rack, I decided to hang another vintage print that was my Grandfathers. I just love the beautiful blues and greens in this Santa print, it makes such a statement when you walk into the kitchen.
Well that’s it, friends! I hope you enjoyed this cozy cottage style Christmas tour. If you’d like to see it all on video, head to my YouTube channel for the full tour! Thank you for joining me!
It all looks beautiful and a bit more then you’ve done in the past. I really like the far kitchen garland with lights. I agree it must be beautiful at night.
I enjoyed the tour and your cozy spaces!! A question. What is the paint color of your wainscoting in the dining room?? I really like it.
Hello! I share all of my paint colors here in this post: https://www.pineandprospecthome.com/timeless-cottage-paint-colors/
Thank you so much!
Oh Andrea you outdid yourself, how Gorgeous! I’m in love with your tree I bought the same one, because of you. I wish I could style it like you, can’t get the branches to look as natural as yours, and those silver pibe ones look so lovely! May I ask where did you get the from? Do you have a link by any chance? Thanks for so much inspiration, you’re my favorite YouTuber and blogger.
Aw thank you so much, you are so sweet. I do point my branches upward and it really helps with making it look natural! Also, I have a lot of my Christmas sources here, I hope this helps! https://www.pineandprospecthome.com/christmas-sources/
Andrea, God has gifted you so much in your decorating skills! Your home is beautiful and gives me encouragement that someday I can have our historic 1939 Cottage Tudor completely updated. Where did you purchase your wooden ceiling beams? Did you all do most of the work yourselves or did you hire out?
Hello Amy, thank you so much! We have actually done all of the work ourselves. We got the beams from an old local barn they planned to burn down, here is the blog post I shared on all of the details! https://www.pineandprospecthome.com/how-to-cut-down-and-install-reclaimed-beams/
I love your living room chairs. Could you tell me where you got them, are they slipcovered?
Of course, thank you! They are from Ikea and here is a link to a post all about them! https://www.pineandprospecthome.com/ikea-farlov-chair-review/
