OUR HOME IS DECORATED AND READY FOR CHRISTMAS IN A COZY MODERN FARMHOUSE STYLE. COME ON IN AND TAKE A LOOK AROUND FOR SOME SIMPLE HOLIDAY INSPIRATION.
My house has been decorated for a few weeks now and I even photographed everything too. But I had so much fun taking pictures…shooting from different angles and trying to teach myself new things I wound up taking a ton of pictures! Like so many photos that I had a really hard time narrowing them down.
So I hope you are ready for lots of photos of my modern farmhouse Christmas home tour! Grab a cup of tea or wine and enjoy!
Christmas Front Porch
I’ve decorated our porch with the same faux wreath and Christmas trees for several years. And I always add fresh garland around the columns of our porch with white lights. You can see our porch from last year here.
This year I decided to add a few fresh winter arrangements after being inspired by our friend, Stacy who is a master gardener and shares some great ideas on her blog. I created the arrangements using Christmas tree trimmings and some cuttings from our backyard. And those large lanterns even got some greenery and twinkle lights.
The vintage sled and skates were both were mine as a child so maybe they aren’t really vintage…I mean how old does an item have to be to be considered vintage? And that large porch sign was a DIY project several years ago.
Come on in…
Just inside our front door is a small table that I added some faux winter greenery in a glass jar along with a small Christmas tree. And the little music box nutcracker is another treasure from my childhood. Mixing old pieces that have special meaning with new decor is the perfect way to blend styles.
I finally bought new garland for our staircases this year. Although I would love real garland I’m afraid it would make a mess and fall apart inside. This white pine with berries from Target was a great compromise since I think it looks so real. Adding some black & white striped ribbon is a pretty detail to dress up the garland.
The slim tree is from Michaels and was 60% off before Thanksgiving. Score! I debated leaving the tree naked but then opted to add simple DIY ornaments.
Christmas Dining Room
In our dining room, I added some budget-friendly wreaths to the back of each chair with that black and white striped ribbon I used on our staircase garland. A new faux cypress garland added to the chandelier with the same glass ornaments I’ve used for years. Check out how our dining room looked last year.
I like to keep our centerpiece simple and I’m loving how it looks this year with a string of mercury ornaments I found at Vintage Market Days. Anne bought a similar string and used them on her Christmas table too. Laying those ornaments on the long wood tray with candles and two mini Christmas trees wrapped in burlap makes the perfect modern farmhouse centerpiece.
A few more mini Christmas trees and some farmhouse style fabric ornaments decorate the china cabinet filled with my collection of Rae Dunn pottery.
On the other side of the dining room is a small buffet table decorated for the holidays. Someday maybe I’ll swap out that “Choose Kindness” sign for a Christmas inspired sign.
Christmas Front Room
A tree is all this room really needs for Christmas since the gallery walls are the feature in this space. Last year we had a real tree in this room which looked so good but this year we went back to the free faux tree we had in our attic. Adding a few farmhouse style pillows to the white couch and changing out the decor on our galvanized tray is a simple way to sprinkle a bit more Christmas into the room without it being too much.
Christmas Powder Room
I wasn’t too happy about having to trim one of the new faux garlands I bought for the staircase. I mean they were brand new! But I was able to use the extra piece in our powder room with the same decor pieces I used there last year. The stained glass angel is so special because it was my mom’s and hung in our kitchen window every Christmas.
And if you haven’t noticed yet I’m really digging Christmas trees…I even have one in our powder room! Isn’t it cute?
Christmas Family Room
Our cozy family room is where we all like to come together to hang out. We cut down our family Christmas tree every year…well almost every year! We may have had another hiccup this year and after going to a tree farm and not coming home with a tree that was too small like last year. Instead, we went back to our favorite local farmers market and bought a Christmas tree that was perfect.
Our Christmas tree is decorated with ornaments we’ve collected since we were married and became a family. It’s filled with our memories! It may not be magazine worthy but it’s so much more special than a perfectly styled tree. Our kids get a new ornament every year that I write their names and the year on. We wait until just before Christmas to add their ornament for the year. It’s my most favorite tradition!
The fireplace is always decorated with our traditional Christmas stockings. A simple faux cypress garland with twinkle lights on the mantel is all that will fit with the other decor items I love up there. I tried to add more greenery and garland but it kept falling down. After breaking some ornaments on the stone fireplace I decided the simple look was perfect for our farmhouse style Christmas family room.
Continuing to collect more Christmas trees this year started with my idea to decorate the top of our entertainment center. I’ve never decorated up there before and after filling the space with DIY sweater pumpkins this fall I knew I wanted to add some Christmas decor. I don’t know why I’ve ignored this prime decorating real estate before but I plan to use it from now on.
Our console table is a fun spot to decorate for the holidays. On the bottom shelf, I added a basket to hold all our years of DIY Christmas card books and a wood bowl filled with grapevine orbs and ornaments. The top of the table is decorated with another mini Christmas tree and my holiday-inspired tiered tray.

Styling this galvanized tiered tray is so easy to do each season or holiday. And it can be moved anywhere around our house. For Christmas, I added bottle brush trees, ceramic houses, and pinecones to fill the tray in a simple holiday style.
More garland with black & white striped ribbon dresses up the other staircase between our family room and kitchen. I added a wreath and the galvanized “Merry Christmas” sign to our tobacco basket hanging on the wall above our bar cabinet.
We have several collections that we’ve accumulated over the years. There is a collection of snowmen that includes a collection plush singing snowmen. And our collection of nutcrackers. I wasn’t going to put out any of these collections but Emma insisted that we do. So rather than sticking one here and there around our home, I grouped them together and to create a vignette of nutcrackers.
Last year the signing snowmen were displayed after Gavin requested we put them out. This year our collection of nutcrackers was important to Emma. Displaying older decor mixed with new pieces gives them new life. And having those meaningful traditional items is what makes our house a cozy Christmas home for our whole family.
I don’t like too much clutter…especially in our kitchen…so I keep the Christmas decor simple. A small lighted flocked Christmas tree sits on a vintage stool in the corner.
Adding trays of Christmas decor is a perfect solution when decorating our kitchen. They can easily be moved out of the way when eating dinner, working or even folding laundry at the table.
The trays give me another area to add candles and my Christmas Rae Dunn canisters. And of course a few more mini trees!
The kitchen window is decorated with garland and twinkle lights. A few more Rae Dunn pieces help add some holiday style. And our small cup holder displays a few red Christmas mugs. The pops of red throughout the kitchen feel so cheerful.
Hope you enjoyed this tour of my modern farmhouse Christmas home. What’s your favorite room to decorate for the holidays?
