Christmas Home Tour

I'm so very excited to be joining my friend Marty from A Stroll Thru Life on another edition of the Christmas Home Tours.  Five days- 30 homes full of Christmas decor inspiration. Today is day one and Marty is kicking off the tours by showcasing her home dressed in a beautiful neutral palette that she infused with her classic style.

This year I decided to go back to our family's favorite theme: red and white. Yes, we are a bunch of traditionalists that love the classic Christmas staples.

Let's start the tour here in our family room, where the biggest change is the bright red carpet I laid on top of the regular rug we use year-round. Shopping the home sure is fun. I've had this red carpet for over 15 years, It was used for a few years in our dining room, but we got tired of it and sent it to the basement where it stayed this entire time. I love the big pop of color it gives to the room and how soft it is.

Last week I visited The Old Lucketts Store holiday house and some of the items that came home with me were the big star above the mantel and the chunky felt ball garland.

Take the tour of the Lucketts Holiday House right HERE.

The blue tones on the carpet were brought out onto the throw pillows and blanket.
I like to display the items I've created throughout the years all around our home, like the sign, the side table/dog house, and the candlesticks on the mantel.

The huge built-in is so far my biggest built. Not only do I love all the storage it provides, but I like to decorate those shelves for each season.

A Christmas village was the theme this year.

A scary face, says my daughter! :D

On the coffee table, I created a little winter wonderland that glows when the lights are turned on.

You can see more details about this Festival of Trees right HERE.

On the other side of this long room, we have our kitchen, the heart of our home.

Little Christmas wreaths on the top cabinets give the entire kitchen a sprinkle of holiday cheer.

It was my first time creating these cranberry luminaries, they are so easy to make and they are very pretty!!  

The items you need: Clear glass jars, pine clippings, fresh cranberries, a floating candle for each jar, and water!

The kitchen table was set up with regular white dishes, plaid red napkins, and a bowl full of glass ornament balls as a centerpiece.
Let's head to my office, the previous dining room.

Right there, by the side of the fridge, I installed this plate rack where I love to display cutting boards or like on this occasion, serving platters, they act as wall art.

I taped a scalloped paper border found at Target on each of the little shelves. A dollar well spent!

I call this space, my gift-wrapping station.  Although, the wrapping is almost done. I'm now working on Christmas cards.

This is my office, but we also use it as our dining room for special occasions or for when we have dinner guests.

I shared more pictures of this room right HERE.

The living room is perhaps the room we use the least in our home, which I kind of like because it doesn't get messy that often. 

I changed the rustic coffee table for this affordable, modern one and I'm happy with it. It makes the room feel more spacious.

Little white Christmas trees, votive holders, books, and gifts serve as coffee table decor.

The other side of the room is adorned with one of my latest builds, the advent calendar. 

Even when the kids were not as grown as they're now -teens and young adults - we used our Advent calendar with words, and stories. We all write words that can create meaningful and beautiful stories. Then, we take turns telling those stories, during or after dinner.

You can get the free plans to build your very own House Advent Calendar right HERE.

This year I created this area to take our shoes off in the little foyer. My red bench couldn't fit in any better!

We're so ready to hit the slopes! :D
Well, that's if it snows someday!

  1. Every year, I love your spaces so much. The attention to detail is always top drawer. It's a treat to linger with coffee and enjoy the photos. I can't pick a favorite it all so much. Thanks so much for sharing.

    1. You're so very kind, my friend. Thank you so much!

  2. Oh I love everything. Your red and is so beautiful and your family room is so amazing with those fabulous built-ins. Seeing all the DIY projects you've done throughout your entire home is amazing, the kitchen, your office and of course the family room - you also decorate each space so beautifully too. Thanks so much for joining the tours again this year.

    1. Marty, thank YOU for allowing me to be on board! ❤️ And thank you so much for being such a wonderful cheerleader.

  3. I love how energetic and festive your home is and with so many cute ideas! I pinned practically every photo. Can hardly wait to try the cranberry luminaries too. But oh my golly the large bead garland has me giddy with excitement. I'm definitely trying that out too! So glad I got to see your tour.

    1. Aww Thanks so much Cindy! You just put a huge a smile on my face! I'm so glad you enjoyed it. I saw that garland at Lucketts and had to have it. I even tried to see where I could find where to buy it online, but had no luck. sorry about that.

  4. It's beautiful and I love how the red pops off all your white! You've done a great job even getting your red rug out to cozy up that space for Christmas. Love it all!

    1. Thanks Rhoda! That rug alone warms up the entire room! :D

  5. Your home is so beautiful and festive - and I LOVE all the red! I tend to stay traditional with my colors as well so your decor really spoke to me. How perfect is that rug in there?!! So many pretty spaces it's hard to pick a favorite.

    1. Oh, I have to have at least one red room for Christmas, it's such a cheerful color! That rug surprised ME. I completely forgot about it until a couple weeks ago.

  6. okay, this is seriously so beautiful, fun and festive. I love color...especially red during Christmas too! happy holidays!

  7. Cristina, your home is so freaking amazing! You always blow me away with your talent- stunning tour and I want that advent calendar but I am not that much of a builder. ;)

    1. I'm sending it your way!;) Well, I wish you were still at the old place, shorter distance.
      Thanks so much, Cassie! Can't wait to see more of your kitchen.

  8. Golly gee, Cristina! This needs to be in a magazine. Absolutely gorgeous.

  9. Oh my goodness, I love, I love everything! Wow, that carpet is a perfect foundation for everything, and it's just magical!!

  10. Cristina your home is SO lovely and welcoming! The red and white is so stricking. Did you make the bead garland on the mantel? Have a wonderful Christmas season.

    1. Oh, how I wish I could make it. Nope. It was one of my finds at Lucketts, a local vintage store.
      Thanks so much for stopping by and for your kind words, Laura!

  11. This seems like an odd way to start a compliment, but I am definitely not a fan of the white walls trend in decorating. However, you do it brilliantly. And, if I were in the market, I would hire you to decorate my home.

    1. You just made my day with your generous compliment. Thank you!!

  12. Your home looks so bright and beautiful for the holidays, Cristina! I love all the colorful decorations against the crisp white! Gorgeous!!!

  13. Your rug and tree were truly made for each other!!! And, love the music artwork in your office/dining room!
