Welcome to my holiday home tour where you’ll find lots of rustic farmhouse Christmas decorating ideas. This year’s Christmas decorating style focuses on lots of neutrals, natural elements and garden-inspired, rustic farmhouse touches with pops of red.

I’m so excited to be part of the Bloggers Best Holiday Home Tour hosted by Kelly from the Tattered Pew and Mansa from This is Simplicite. If you stopped by from Suzy over at Worthing Court Blog welcome to my home and garden. Suzy has such a beautiful home. I love all her creative home, garden and lifestyle ideas.

Welcome to My Holiday Home Tour

As an avid gardener, I love to bring the outdoors in and decorate my rustic farmhouse home based on what’s going on outside. Now that we are heading into winter, I am all about the twinkling lights, a cozy fire and lots of gorgeous greens.

Are you getting ready for the holidays too?

I live in a quiet suburban neighborhood in northern New Jersey. As you pull up to my home, you’ll be greeted by expansive gardens throughout the property. We’ve lived here for 22 years and I created, designed and planted every one of these gardens myself.

It doesn’t look like much right now, but when this garden blooms from the first signs of spring through fall. It’s wonderful!

My front yard cottage garden is my pride and joy. I designed it to bloom all season long with lots of gorgeous flowers and pretty seasonal colors.

Although the garden is not blooming right now, there is still lots of visual interest with evergreens and dried flower heads. Some like to cut those flower heads back in fall, but I leave them up to keep it looking like a garden.

To make the front porch look festive and fun, I decorated it with pretty winter planters, a gorgeous live wreath and a new doormat.

I just finished these gorgeous winter planters and love how they turned out.

Don’t you?

Winter planters are one of my favorite things to make because you can do them for free if you have enough evergreens on your property.

This year, I supplemented with greens from the nursery because I wanted more of a variety in the containers.

Don’t be surprised if my dogs, Bodie and Koda accompany us during the home tour. They are always with me!

When we renovated our home 15 years ago from a small, three bedroom ranch to a four bedroom center hall colonial, we wanted to have an open floor concept on the main floor.

It was a challenge, but we widened doorways and made a half wall between the front entry and dining room.

If this is your first time here, this antique bench used to look SO DIFFERENT before I painted the upholstery fabric. I was surprised how well it turned out and it was so easy and inexpensive to do!

Christmas Decorating in My Rustic Farmhouse Kitchen

When you first walk into my home, the kitchen is one of the first rooms you see from the front entry hall. It is the hub of the home. You can usually find me in here cooking something delicious.

I love how my kitchen looks with all the twinkle lights!

I remodeled this kitchen by myself almost three years ago by painting the cabinets. Looking back, I can’t believe I waited so long to do it. If you are considering it, DO IT! I have no regrets and wish I did it sooner.

Rustic Farmhouse Kitchen at Christmas

My favorite part of this DIY kitchen remodel is the range hood. I refinished it with gel stain and it looks incredible! The gel stain brought out all those wood details and it is a statement piece in the room. It might be my favorite DIY to this day!

Because I have a small kitchen, we swapped out a kitchen table for this island. When we remodeled, I bought these really comfy bar stools so we would linger longer as a family around the table. We used to have saddle stools and we just didn’t hang out here for very long after meals.

The corner hutch has always been a challenge to decorate but I love how it looks this year.

When we remodeled the kitchen, I wanted to completely take it out to open up the space more. But we didn’t have the budget to re-do that whole wall.

So it stayed.

And now I don’t mind it so much.

Rustic Farmhouse Christmas Decorating Ideas for the Dining Room

The dining room sits to the right of the front entry hall. We love to entertain friends and family here. Even when we are not entertaining, I always have a pretty winter centerpiece to decorate the table.

If you do nothing else to decorate, a festive centerpiece adds so much to the room. It’s one of my favorite things to create and makes me smile every time I walk by.

I am a huge fan of this vintage toolbox that I’ve been using as a centerpiece container for the last year. It’s gone through so many different looks!

For the holidays, I went a little bolder with the reds and tucked in some red ball and Christmas present ornaments.

When we renovated our home 15 years ago, we bought this beautiful cabinet and hutch from one of the local shops here in town. It is my favorite piece in our home.

Rustic Farmhouse Living Room Christmas Decorating Ideas

To the left of the entry hall is our living room. Since we do not have a formal living room, this is our family room where we love to hang out together.

Now that it’s gotten much colder out, we’ve been enjoying daily cozy fires. With my girls home from college, my family has been getting together here to watch football or streaming a fun show.

Rustic Farmhouse Laundry Room

We recently remodeled the laundry room. It is really small and is a pass-through space from the living room to the bathroom. But I love how it turned out don’t you?

And it was even more fun decorating it for the holidays.

    Stacy, I was so looking forward to your tour, and you did not disappoint! I know you’re into gardening. (I love seeing what you do on Instagram.) I didn’t realize you were also into DIY projects! Everything looks so beautiful and expertly styled. Those planters! By the way, I’ve been searching for bar stools for 5 years! Did you end up getting ivory or grey stools?

      I truly appreciate that Crissy! They look grey but were not described that way on the site. It works in my kitchen though because the walls are revere pewter by Benjamin Moore. We love those stools! The other ones were not comfortable at all but looked cool! xoxo
