I just finished decorating my vintage farmhouse for Christmas 2022 and can’t wait to show you how pretty it all looks! Step into a wonderland of festive inspiration and join me on a captivating Christmas home tour where you’ll discover rustic elegant décor ideas and holiday decorating tips. So grab a cup of coffee or tea and enjoy my holiday home tour.

Decorating for Christmas this year has been a lot of work so far. Cause I’m not even done!

As I’m decorating, I’m learning what I want to do and still making some tweaks. We want to add lights and fresh greenery outside that I’ve barely started on, so you’ll have to check back on the progress!

This year’s Christmas aesthetic is leaning towards cozy natural neutrals.

Our home has lots of wood floors with painted inlays and travertine tile that has a warm vibe and the neutrals really complement the bones of our house.

Wait until you see how pretty it looks all decked out for Christmas 2022!

Welcome to My Vintage Farmhouse!

It’s been so fun getting to know our new-to-us home and gardens. The property here is pretty spectacular and it felt like Christmas morning for the gardener every day throughout the different seasons.

While I planted two of the gardens myself, the former homeowners did an amazing job creating all of these incredible garden rooms and outdoor living spaces.

In case you want to see how gorgeous the plants and flowers are here, you can see them in these posts.

But I also share weekly pics of the gardens in my Sunday updates here too. (Subscribe here so you don’t miss out on the gardening inspo!)

Front Porch Christmas 2022

The first stop in my house tour is the front porch, which is one of my favorite places to enjoy views of the property.

It just started getting colder here, so I held off cutting fresh greenery from the gardens to make my winter front porch planters like I’ve done in the past. I will be doing them, but waiting until December to get started so they last through February.

For now, I tucked some faux greenery in my vintage copper boiling pot that I found thrifting and some boho planters until I get started.

To jazz up the porch swing, I added a faux cedar garland with lights to cozy up the chains on the swing with these red and black buffalo check and Christmas pillows.

I also added a new outdoor area rug that looks SO PRETTY with the greenery and that abelia in the back of the garden.

Doesn’t it look so festive?

Front Entry Hall

Next up on my Christmas home tour, is the foyer. And let me tell you, about how much the front entry hall went through some major changes over the last year.

The Transformation

The foyer used to be cranberry red and while beautiful, it was a little dark and closed in the space. (If you want to see the front entry hall makeover, click here.)

I painted the trim and walls with Linen White by Benjamin Moore and now it’s like a whole new living space!

Wood Flooring With Painted Inlays

The wood floors have a painted inlay, so it’s tough not to compete with them when looking for the right area rug. I’m still learning but so far I’m loving my latest area rug find. I may ultimately move this one to the library, but for now, it’s staying here.

I love it, but it pulls a little more peach for me than I’d like.

Thrift Store Home Decor

In addition to the area rug, we’ve been decorating this room with thrifted storage pieces and home decor we found both locally and in Vermont.

My painted piano is also in this space and I enjoy decorating the top with seasonal decor.

Christmas Home Decor

For Christmas, I decided to go with a natural neutral vibe using gold leaf branches, glittery whirls, and these incredible real-touch poinsettias that I found at a local garden nursery.

I added a garland with white Christmas lights, pinecones, white berry picks, gold berry sprays, and the same gold leaf branches and glittery whirls to move the look around the room so it all flows.

My new King of Christmas King Flock Tree is in this space and is decorated with the same vibe. I LOVE how it turned out, don’t you?

One of the reasons I wanted to keep this room pretty neutral is it flows into the dining room and is also decorated with a neutral vibe.

Speaking of my flocked tree, do you see the tree skirt beneath the gold tree collar?

My niece crocheted that for me.

I love how the dainty ruffles add a feminine touch to the tree. For the first time, I decided to add some gorgeous ribbon too. I used two different kinds that I found at the local nursery. One is really thick and large with a lot of gold detail and the other is simply gold.

I considered going horizontally around the tree but chose to waterfall them down instead and love the result.

To decorate the tree, I chose a bunch of gold, bronze, and glitter ornaments to add more texture to the tree. Plus I used those same gold branches, glitter whirls and gold berry sprays.

The Dining Room for Christmas 2022

One of the prettiest home interiors of my home is the dining room. And this space has undergone the most dramatic transformation thus far. And the only way to appreciate just how much we did is to check out what it looked like before!

Dining Room Before and After

We spent a weekend removing dark upholstered walls. And then spent another almost two weeks repairing and painting the walls, trim, and textured faux finish ceiling.

It was a lot of work, but well worth the effort because look at it now! While it’s still a work in progress, it’s come a long way and I love where it’s going.

The table and chairs are the last to get a makeover in here for a while. I’m hoping to recover the fabric and strip the orange tone from the wood this winter.

The shining star of the room is my glamorous crystal chandelier. I mean, it stops me in my tracks every time I walk by!

I also have my oversized black china cabinet and hutch in this space on one wall. It soaks up the entire wall for the most part, but I added a few slim flocked trees with lights on the sides for Christmas to spruce things up.

The opposite wall was pretty blank and I’d been searching for the right piece to fit there. We need the circulation around the dining table so a larger storage piece would overwhelm the spot.

While out thrifting, I found this old mantel, refinished it a few times until I got it right, and decorated it for the holidays.

It adds some texture to the room with a little sparkle from the vintage mirror above it and the Christmas mantel decor.

The table is set for a pretty Christmas party with a poinsettia centerpiece in a brass ice bucket.

To keep things looking neutral, I focused on greens and gold for the table decor and love how it turned out. It’s cozy, pretty, and welcoming for guests.

We are hosting a few for Christmas weekend, so I’m preparing ahead with these festive family breakfast and brunch ideas.

Living Room Christmas Decorating Ideas

Next up in my Christmas home tour is our formal living room. Last year, I decorated the living room with more reds and whites, but this year I pulled back a little and focused more on neutrals with pops of red on the tree and the mantel.

I started decorating this room with a lot more reds and didn’t love it, so I focused more on cozy natural, and neutral textures in a majority of the space.

It will be that much easier to transition to winter after Christmas is over.

Updating the Living Room for Christmas

This is one of the only rooms left on the main floor that we did not update. And I imagine we will at some point, but for now, we’re going to leave it as is.

The ceiling has these beautiful hand painted faux designs and Venetian plaster on the walls. It’s a little dark for my taste, but I want to live with it for a while to see what I want to do in here.

While we didn’t do a major update to this room like the others, I purchased a few decorative pieces to bring it more to scale with the room and overall vibe of the home.

It started with this area rug that I LOVE SO MUCH. It’s the perfect blend of earthy neutrals and looks amazing with my leather sofas.

The french country coffee table and side tables are both new to the space. I love the lines on them and they are really elegant for a modern farmhouse.

To spruce up the walls behind my dark leather sofas, I found these gorgeous vintage floral prints. I love the moody color palette in them, don’t you?

When I added pops of red to this section of the living room, it clashed with the overall look of the space, so I pulled them out. I’m on the hunt for different throw pillows, but love the look so far.

Christmas Decorating Ideas in the Family Room

And the last room we are stopping in for my holiday house tour is the family room. I am always in this space and it’s so cozy to hang out in!

The Family Room Transformation

The family room has come a long way, do you remember what it looked like before? If not, you can see the family room makeover here.

But it had dark brown Venetian plaster walls that we painted over with Benjamin Moore Linen White to brighten it up.

I don’t have photos of them, but the windows used to have beautiful plantation shutters on them that we took down shortly after moving in.

Because I enjoy bringing the outdoors in, they blocked the view of the incredible backyard zen garden so those were the first things to go.

I’m slowly decorating this space as well and it’s coming together nicely. We hang out in here a lot as it gets a ton of natural light and it’s just off the kitchen.

My favorite piece in the room is my round mango wood coffee table. I love the tones in the wood and the texture of the piece. It’s the perfect coffee table for a large sectional sofa too.

Christmas Decorations in the Family Room

To decorate for Christmas, I was inspired by some cozy ski lodge looks from Pottery Barn.

I grabbed a dough bowl and filled it with neutral textured potpourri and winter greens, tucked in some red poinsettias and amaryllis around the room.

Plus I added some battery-operated taper in these vintage candlestick holders and pillar candles in these rustic cloches for cozy lighting.

I found these fun ski lodge pillows at Homegoods so I snagged a few and swapped out what I had here for fall.

We added another King of Christmas tree to this room too which is decorated with vintage ornaments from my grandmother. I think they date back to World War I which is kind of cool too right?

These ornaments were in storage for so long that I didn’t have enough room for them. But here, they get their own tree in the family room and we love it!
