Take the Christmas Farmhouse Tour, Pink Feminine + Rustic Holiday
Want to hear the news? Our home was selected for the HomeBunch Beautiful Homes of IG series this year, as a Christmas feature (***squeals in disbelief)!
It’s always a huge burst of validation when someone, other than your mom, acknowledges your home decor. Like, “Who-me?? Are you sure?” After all, I don’t know if our little cottage farmhouse appeals to the masses…Mostly it’s just to my fellow inner-granny-kindred-spirits, who love cozy spaces, thrifted finds, and country living. You know who you are.
But atlas, here we are! May we spread that charming granny style to all of the internet. (I’m giggling right now at the thought. lol) You can read the special article in its entirety over on HomeBunch.
Or hang around and tour with me awhile! I worked for days tying pink bows and cleaning every nook and cranny; I hope you notice and comment below with encouraging words for next time. I need them….shewww.
Special Notes: All of these images were taken by a very talented local photographer, Michelle Waters. I recommend her for every photography endeavor. (She was our wedding photographer even!)
The layered rugs are from Ruggable. Find them here. I love the whimsical print of birch trees and tiny blue birds.
AD Houseplan #51188mm all dressed up for the holidays.
A frosted Blueberry garland steals the show, draping effortlessly from our over-sized wooden mantle. And when I say effortlessly, I mean it’s hanging on by a thread. No sudden movements…just kidding hehe
A look at real-life bookcase shelves. We love listening to vinyl and had these shelves custom build to accommodate our record player and vinyl collection.
Antique Chicago brick in all her glory. I love the stamped lettering and subtle imperfections. It surrounds our fireplace as a brick veneer.
Our feminine country Christmas tree. Tree decor can be found on my LTK page. Note the sweet little doily snowflakes. Swoon…
Wooden antique thread spools as garland! I found a large box full of these at a yard sale many years ago and created the unique garland.
Add plates in your Christmas tree! Watch the how-to on Instagram.
A look at the entry wall in the living room. I have a desk workspace and hall tree for guests.
One of my favorite additions to the kitchen is this rail from Ikea: so inexpensive and functional! I love hanging a little seasonal decor element like a wreath or basket of flowers on one of the hooks.
A single simple stem in an antique glass jug makes a beautiful centerpiece.
I found that sweet cross stitch for $12 at our local antique store. I adhered it to the tile with Command Velcro!
The vent hood is my favorite spot to display seasonal wreathes in our home. Find our blueberry wreath here.
I am still smitten with the board and batten wall and all the character it brings to this space. If you would like to add a feature wall to your space, find the tutorial here.
I dried hydrangeas from the yard and placed them in a simple cream vase. Adding tiny velvet bows to the pewter candlesticks is the cutest detail.
A simple “fancy” blueberry cake is the perfect dessert for any holiday dinner. I give the directions on how to make one here.
The stripe runner and crocheted napkins were Homegoods finds. China is Homer Laughlin Ferndale pattern.
Garage Entry Hall:
A never-before-seen look at the entry hall. The stairs leads to a bonus room above the garage. It serves as a playroom for our kids.
Admittedly, the laundry room never looks like this. It’s usually piled with laundry, hence the large counter for folding.
I also use this space for crafts and projects.
The antique-inspired faucets in our home are by Kingston Brass. Very impressed with their quality thus far.
This wall mount sink is also by Kingston Brass.
I added subtle holiday details in our bedroom, like a small wreath on our reclaimed headboard.
Eucalyptus is a great choice for year-round decor.
Lots of cozy layers are my favorite, especially for the winter season. Bedding can be found on LTK.
Simple details; the nightstand is an antique butter churn table. The headboard is an old barn door.
I drew this trim design specifically for our builder. I bet he is glad to be finished with our house. haha
Shiplap in the tray ceiling. Fan link here.
Our bathroom continues to evolve. We added curtains to the far window for more privacy. They are a STEAL if you are looking for vintage stripe panels.
I added this new pink runner rug by Loloi. The cloudy day added to its pinkness. And you know I don’t mind.
Vintage floral prints for $10! Thrifted.
Easter egg detail: That’s Dolly Parton’s autobiography. The book belonged to my late Mamaw, and I wanted her to have a square in this feature. The candle is Ohio-made by Hyggelight, the Growing Candle. Find them on Instagram here. They are my favorite gift to give!
I love using old crocks as vases. This one belonged to my grandmother. Find the florals and sink details here.
Stamped brass hardware is from the House of Antique Hardware.
The only holiday detail I added to their space was a mini boxwood wreath on the mirror.
Find the wreath here.
I added a small tree to each of the kid’s bedrooms this year. It was such a fun moment for each of them to choose their tree decorations.
The antique crib spring is still one of my favorite DIY projects. It’s so fun and versatile! Her retro kitchen can be found here.
The sweetest little tree I have ever seen. I wrapped the base with handkerchiefs. Ornaments and tree are from Target, but are unfortunately sold out.
These were my baby shoes. I display them on her memo board.
I wonder if he knows how cool his bedroom is? The fire station play set has been so fun over the last year.
Our son is very interested in sharks too, so we decided to make him a shark tree this year.
Happy Holidays from our home to yours!
I hope you found some holiday ideas worth saving! Maybe tying pink bows on everything should be the take away from this year. haha.
As you go forth and decorate your own home for the holidays, my best advice is just be true to your own style and personality. Even if it’s granny-esque and not mainstream or trendy, share anyway! Someone might notice and be inspired by what you create.
Thank you for stopping by. Happy Holidays my friends! And if you have a spare minute, head over to the HomeBunch House tour site. It’s full of inspiring homes of all styles!
