A Cozy Vintage Christmas

This year, I wanted to keep my Christmas decor simple. After the year we’ve had, I just wanted a cozy Christmas at home and I wanted my decor to reflect that. I wasn’t feeling some of my bright red decor pieces that I’ve used in years past and I actually sold some of it on Facebook Marketplace. While I did keep some pops of red in certain areas around the house, I incorporated more neutrals than I usually do. I wanted it to feel cozy and inviting this Christmas, with a vintage farmhouse feel.

In our entryway, I hung a jute star garland that I found on clearance at Hobby Lobby a few years ago and this adorable book page banner that my friend Amy @theboundandprint made me. I used my favorite chunky knit pillow covers and a couple of thrifted tan pillows on the church pew. I love the look of wood and white paired with neutrals.

In the front sitting room, one of my favorite rooms in the house, I decorated my shelf with a DIY book page banner, thrifted brass candlesticks, faux cedar garland, and an antique gold mirror. I used a vintage sled that I found at Goodwill as coffee table decor.

One of our Christmas traditions is to go out and cut a real tree every year as a family. We found a local tree farm last year that sells Canaan and Frazier firs and all of their trees are $35. I love searching through the field with our little ones to find the perfect tree and cutting it down ourselves. I only bought one pack of ribbon ornaments and some white cording (1.29/yd) from Hobby Lobby this year. All of the other ornaments I already had.

I used some cedar stems in my antique galvanized vase as a centerpiece on my dining table. I paired it with a brass trumpet candlestick that I found at Goodwill for $1 and a candle placed in a $3 mini wreath from the Target dollar spot.

I used other vintage-style pieces around the dining room, like a thrifted brass horn and an old-fashioned hot cocoa sign.

I wanted to keep at least one room in the house completely neutral. I was so excited to decorate our living room for Christmas since we just recently gave it a refresh. I replaced the jute rug in here with this neutral rug I found on Facebook Marketplace for only $20!

I kept our master bedroom decor neutral too. I strung a bell garland that I made using bells I found at Goodwill and added a pillow from the Target dollar spot on our bed.

I decided to use my red Rae Dunn Christmas pieces on my mug rack and on my coffee bar for some pops of red. I also added just a few pops of red here and there. I’m glad I didn’t completely ditch the red everywhere!

I really am happy with our Christmas decor this year and plan to do a similar look next year. Let me know what you think in the comment section below!

Thank you for reading and Merry Christmas! 🎄
