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.
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.
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.
Come On In!
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 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.
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.
