You’re Going to Love This Country Chic Christmas Home Tour!

Come inside and tour a home with a country chic Christmas style decorated with lots of greenery, red and green plaid ribbon, and antiques.

Do you love peeking inside other people’s homes at Christmas?

Me too!

Our area used to host a Christmas home tour and it was so fun seeing how people dressed up their homes for the holidays.

It was such a great way to get ideas for my own home.

Thank goodness for blogs and Instagram!

I can still take a look around other homes and be inspired.

And today, well, the stockings are hung, the halls are decked, and it’s time to take a tour of my country chic home!

If you’re new around here, I’m Anne and I get to blog with my bestie (and across-the-street neighbor), AnnMarie.

We both got to partner with Delaney Hardware and Ryobi Tools this year to give our front doors a makeover.

There’s still time to vote for our doors (and enter to win up to $1,000 in products from them for your own home)!

If you have two email addresses, you can vote once for each of us… (wink, wink).

AnnMarie’s beautiful home with her updated front door is the view from my front porch.

Her style is best described as “modern farmhouse”, and you’ve got to see how it looks this Christmas.

We may have different styles, but that doesn’t mean I don’t absolutely love how she decorates!

Plus, we both tend to prefer natural and neutral Christmas decor in our homes.

Since you’re here, let’s take a look around my home too.

Why don’t we start on my front porch?

Front Porch and Entryway

Two black rocking chairs on a front porch with Christmas plaid throw pillows and a tiered stand decorated for Christmas between them.

I have a long front porch that stretches across the whole front of my home.

It’s one of my favorite features of this home’s elevation!

If you have a front porch too, you’ll love these simple and affordable ways to decorate your porch for the holidays.

Come on in!

Black front door decorated for Christmas with a DIY yarn hoop wreath opened up to a country chic style home decorated for the holidays.

This summer we hired someone to sand down our Bruce hardwood floors and refinish them and they’re the star of the show at my home now.

Front Hallway

Large white classic double barn doors in a foyer decorated for Christmas with red berry wreaths hung with Christmas plaid ribbon

My foyer has two focal points: these giant barn doors my husband built and a gallery wall on one side.

A front entry hallway decorated for Christmas with a nativity scene on a small black antique table. A custom sign from Between You and Me Signs with the lyrics to O Holy Night hangs above the nativity. Beyond the table is a staircase with garland on the banisters and a family room with a fireplace and Christmas tree.

And the other side features this antique sewing machine table, the perfect spot for my husband’s vintage nativity.

Apparently, everything that we have from our childhood and even the beginning of our marriage is considered vintage now!

This is one of the few areas in my home that’s actually done with its makeover!

Game Room

The other side of my foyer opens to our game room.

If your family doesn’t use a formal dining room either, I shared my tips for converting that space to a game room earlier this year.

As you look around my home, you’ll notice that my favorite way to decorate for Christmas is with greenery.

And that’s AnnMarie’s favorite way too!

Family Room

A Christmas tree with custom collar is next to the fireplace and an iron chandelier is decorated with more greenery.

My family room is the heart of my home and everything revolves around this space.

Painting my marble fireplace surround completely transformed this area for less than $50!

This space is the focal point for my Christmas decorating too.

I love decorating my built-in shelves for the holidays, and my mantel is another favorite spot to dress up.

But the focal point?

That’s definitely our family Christmas tree that’s filled with meaningful ornaments we’ve collected for over 50 years.

I tried something new this year and created a half wreath to go above my round mirror.

I love how it draws your eye upward and balances the greenery in this room!

Stairway and Hall

Wood staircase with painted risers decorated for Christmas with greenery garland wrapped in twinkle lights held by large plaid bows. A gallery wall with black frames goes up the stairway wall.

I’m not sure what to call this space.

It’s not really a hallway.

It’s a strip of wood flooring that runs between the family room carpeting and the staircase.

So it’s sort of a hall?

But different.

However, it’s how you get to the bathroom and the kitchen, so it’s pretty important!

I dressed up the staircase with a combination of two garlands: the boxwood garland you can see in my first ever Christmas home tour on the blog plus some new cedar garland.

Then I tucked in some eucalyptus and added some pretty plaid bows.

You’ll see this same Christmas plaid everywhere in my home this year thanks to our friend Jackie who owns a shop in Asheville that we got to decorate for Christmas this year!

Kitchen

My kitchen is currently a work in progress.

That’s a nice way of saying it’s been a bit of a disaster the past few weeks…

I shared my plans to give it a makeover without painting my cherry cabinets in September.

Three months later, the counters finally arrived!

But everything else will get finished after the holidays.

I’ll still be pulling out my Christmas plates to set a pretty table on Christmas day.

I found this amazing vintage china cabinet this spring so it’s the focal point of my kitchen for now!

Backyard Patio

Poolside Paver patio with large gazebo decorated for Christmas with lighted garland and string lights. Iron furniture with red cushions sit around a coffee table with a small firepit on top at nighttime.

One of my favorite spaces to decorate for the holidays is right outside my kitchen windows.

Living in North Carolina means December is generally a beautiful time to sit outside, even in the evenings.

Sometimes with a portable heater or two…

I stick to faux greenery inside my home because of allergies, but outside I have a trick to make cheap faux garland look amazing with clippings from my yard!

This year AnnMarie helped me make cute layered wreaths to go on the backs of the chairs.

Laundry Room

Country chic laundry room with peel and stick tile floors is decorated for Christmas. A wreath hangs on the custom wood valance and garland hangs above the green painted cabinets.

My laundry room got a huge makeover this year so I decided to give it some country chic Christmas touches for the first time ever.

I’ve never decorated my laundry room for Christmas!

But a space this pretty deserves a little something extra.

I made the dried orange and wood bead garland myself.

One of the best parts of using a lot of neutrals and natural greenery in my Christmas decorating is that I can leave a lot of it up throughout January for a cozy vibe until it’s time to bring on the spring.

If you’ve seen ideas you like while visiting, remember there’s going to be some great sales on Christmas decor in a few days so start planning now!

Loved every aspect of your holiday decorations this year combined with your many do-overs! Each year I but one or more new decorations but this year added many! So sad it’s just for me since dad doesn’t care and we aren’t having any company again! Even bought yummy treats and caramel pecan buns from Michaels Bakery! Hope to see you soon! Stay well!❤️

Thanks so much, Mom! I firmly believe that even if only you are enjoying your home it's still important to make it something special. It was so good seeing your new finds thanks to FaceTime last night! Love you and see you soon!

Very, very nice! I not only like your Christmas decorations, but I like the pops of black used to accentuate your rooms. I've also used black to accent my rooms, so I can appreciate it more than others. It's about as neutral as you can get.

Thanks so much, Mike! I agree, black is the perfect way to add some great contrast. Thanks so much for reading our blog and taking the time to comment! Hope you had a wonderful Christmas and are having a great week!
