This year I wanted a bit more of an inviting front entrance to the house. If you took a peek at part one of my tour, you saw that I had a grander front porch than previous years, so I wanted to carry that into the front entrance when you entered the house. I found this adorable Nutcracker at Homesense a few years ago and loved that it went so well with the red in our original stain glass windows. The chair is usually by my fireplace but needed to be moved to fit the tree in that spot.

I got my HUGE poinsettia at Costco this year, a little tip for you with poinsettias is to not over water them! They prefer to be on the dryer side. The Santa bag was brought last year by the man in red, but I originally got it at Homesense as well. I love the layered look of this space!

I kept my front stairway very simple this year with one strand of cedar garland. The stair runner is West Elm jute rugs and the full tutorial can be found here.

The dining room table is always so much fun to dress up and this year I decide to showcase my large collection of blue jars. They already remind me of things that sparkle so no better time to display them then at Xmas.

EAT letters are B Vintage. Dough Bowl is Antique Farmhouse

I add greens to my ladder light every year as it just makes it look so festive. I usually stick to cedar and blue spruce to insure no needles drop on the table below.

I added a simple wreath to my grandmothers hutch an used vintage ornaments and fresh greens to pull it all together. I love how the dough bowl from Antique Farmhouse looks with the candles as well. Chairs are Restoration Hardware. Table and bench are B Vintage

I brought out my dish holder to display my Queen Anne antique china dishes for christmas dinner. I left the crystal door knobs in the top because I loved how they went with the other xmas decor in the room. That little bit of sparkle.

The tree skirt is a DIY project that I knit this past month and I love how it turned out. It is actually just a huge, chunky blanket that I wrapped around the base of the tree!

In previous years, I have always draped the cedar green around my triple french doors but this year I decided to add them to one of the bay windows. I love how much this added to this room and made it feel christmasy. The greens really framed in my sitting area.

I chose to keep the fireplace very simple this year by adding a natural green wreath and hung my hubbies latest antler rack in the centre.


I made the pretty white salvaged tin tree out of scrap metal I had in the shop! I love how it turned out.

The mantel is simple christmas string with antique ornaments and eucalyptus. The round jute rug is Pottery Barn and the sheep skin hide is from Costco .

The tree is a spruce that we cut down this year on our family farm. Do you see my little friend sitting in the tree skirt?

I made this adorable little wreath pillow this year. I actually double sided it with a different wreath on both sides so that I won’t grow tired of it as quickly.

I picked up the sheep skin rug from Costco and layered it over my other rug to make it a bit cozier for winter. My kiddos love it there so much though it may end up staying. My felt rug is from Homesense and metallic pouf is Etsy

Our big tree is artificial and is from Costco, the blue hutch is originally Chintz and Co.

I wasn’t sure how I was going to like the Duck Egg cabinet at Christmas time but I LOVE it. It keeps the room so fresh and airy. Find details on how I got the colour here.

I chose to keep the kitchen very simple this year by just adding a few touches of greenery and vintage Xmas balls through out.

My simple nativity scene is the perfect touch to get the Christmas feel. I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas and take every moment you can to enjoy time with family and friends. I hope you enjoyed this portion of my tour! Feel free to leave a comment below as I would love to hear from you. Merry Christmas everyone!!!
