Christmas Home Tour (Family Room & Kitchen)

Black and gold family room for Christmas

Hello there!!

I am as ever so very excited to join my blogging friends for another holiday home tour hosted by Marty from A Stroll Thru Life!  Lots of holiday decor inspiration during a full week of tours.

Christmas home tour week is lots of fun and this time you're in for a treat with thirty beautiful homes that you can visit. All the links are at the end of this post. 

If you're popping over from Anita from Whispering Pines Homestead hello and welcome! I'm so happy to have you here. If you haven't visited Anita's home, well, I have to tell you that her Christmas tours are one of my very favorites every single year.

Today I'm sharing my family room and kitchen and doing a little re-cap of a few rooms I already shared. The living room and office will be shared in an upcoming post.

Let's start here in our family room, this year I went for a more neutral palette, adding lots of black and gold mixed with green and a teensy bit of red for good measure. :)

Ha, my family loves red... I still remember the year when I went all blue and they didn't like it one single bit. From then on, red always has to be incorporated into our holiday décor. 

This is the first year that I'm adding black and I'm loving it, I don't know why I didn't use it before, it's so classic!

Don't you love it when you score a good thrifty find?! I've been searching Marketplace, Craiglist and even doing a few trips to our closest thrift stores trying to find décor elements and furnishings to help one of my daughter's friends with her new apartment. 
I couldn't give you an update on that project, which was supposed to happen early this week. My daughter wasn't feeling well and we thought it was COVID-19 - Well, the test results came back yesterday with a negative result. We are so relieved, we were all on edge for a few days trying to keep her quarantined in her room.

During my thrifty search, this gold urn crossed my path and I instantly fell in love. I gave it a good wash and polished it. Some marks remained but I love it just the way it is. The inside is silver and I only paid six dollars for it. Score!

Looking to the other side of this room, the build-in keeps this room organized. On the shelves, I created mini villages which I think turned out very cute!

I removed the wallpaper from the side shelves. I kept the wallpaper in the center, but I will probably take it off soon.

During winter I enjoy the light bouncing back.

Now, the kitchen table is the piece that separates the family room from the kitchen. It's here where we have our daily meals. We use it so much that, as you can see, we have a mismatched chair, I'm on the hunt for a new set. :D


As usual, the kitchen gets minimum holiday décor.

This is also the first time I'm using a real garland around the window. My son made me laugh when he saw it and told me it looked kind of crazy! :D I didn't want to fiddle with it much, but hey, it smells divine!

The red berry branches on the kitchen island are the pop of red we needed.
Fruits and vegetables are the ideal décor here in the kitchen. My daughter was also making fun of me for camouflaging avocados in between the tangerines.

Well, I better head to my bedroom with so much criticism around these parts. :)

Here's a little video about this room, but you can find more details right HERE.

The very first room that got all decked out for the holidays was our little mudroom.

It got decorated with tons of red, a good bunch of little hanging planters and I even stuffed a desk (another thrifty find) full of Christmas cheer! Check it out right HERE.
