It’s that wonderful time of year when our homes turn into these magical places full of twinkle lights, cozy winter decor, and so much joy. I love the holidays, not just because I have an excuse to turn my home into a winter wonderland, but because of the family traditions, the special moments with the kids and the way our home seems to feel extra warm and cozy and full of Christmas cheer. I know all of that may sound so cheesy, but it’s the truth.
I feel so honored to be part of the Cherished Christmas Home Tours hosted by Cherished Bliss and Country Living Magazine! Today, I’ll be sharing part of my Nordic Christmas Tour (at least my take on it!). I wish I could invite each of you over to see everything in person, sometimes pictures really don’t do it justice. If you haven’t already, be sure to check out Debbie from Refresh Restyle, her home is simply stunning!
I tend to lean towards really clean and modern lines with a rustic touch, and that is exactly what I did with my Christmas decor this year. I wanted it to blend in with my every day decor and not feel overwhelming. The little subtle touches are all you need sometimes.
I’m pretty sure every home tour you see this year will include buffalo check somewhere in their space! I am definitely on board with the trend and I’m loving it. (buy the throw here )
I wish I could get a better picture of the windows, but we have these beautiful snowflakes hanging in them! They really make the nordic look we are going for this year.
And would you believe these sleds belonged to my two older brothers many years ago? Love them.
I’ve always loved the look of boxwood wreaths, especially hanging in the kitchen. I made my own wreaths using this great tutorial from The Turquoise Home.
For those of you who remember this amazing console table, it used to be in our family room and I recently moved it into our dining area. It works so well here and I love having here for vignettes!
This is one of my favorite holiday displays to date, I still can’t believe I scored this old door for $40 this summer!
PS. do you save all of your stockings from over the years? These were my husband and my very first stockings as a married couple. I generally keep them packed away every year but save them for sentimental value, and I’m so glad I found a place for them this year!
Moving into the family room to my other favorite display. I decided to switch out my frames with custom Christmas Printables (will be available on the blog soon). A very easy and inexpensive project that adds so much. It’s the little things.
