My Cozy Christmas Home Tour

Merry & Cozy Christmas Home - so many creative decorating ideas! Tour

It’s the most wonderful time of the year.

Welcome to my 6th annual Christmas home tour.

Once again, I’ve teamed up with Jennifer Rizzo for her Holiday House Walk. She has gathered 31 super talented bloggers and we can’t wait to share our homes with you. You can start the tour at her place and hop from blog to blog all week long.

I’m sharing my full source list at the end of this post to make it easy to find anything you love.

Don’t miss the house before mine – Traci of Beneath My Heart who is so sweet and funny! You’ll love her home.

I’ve decked the halls, trimmed a few trees and mixed old and new in my 1903 home.

It’s all about snowflakes in the foyer. The garland gets mini wood snowflakes – a nod to the antique wood stocking stretchers dangling from the stairs.

Love this lush Christmas garland on the staircase with wood snowflake ornaments

Antique stocking stretchers on the staircase

Giant paper snowflakes look amazing on the staircase wall

I love my woven fabric bench and all it needs is a crate of old Shiny Brites.

This foyer gets a festive Christmas makeover with a old soda crate filled with vintage shiny brite ornaments Vintage shiny brite ornaments in an old soda crate

The family room is where Hallmark movie marathons take place (Holiday in Handcuffs anyone)!

I love this huge plaid wreath from HomeGoods.

These cute little Santa and Mrs. Claus are vintage tobacco tins and we love watching the amaryllis grow in a clear glass jar (see how to grow your own amaryllis here).

A cozy throw adds pattern and warmth on the sofa (and covers the tattered cushion compliments of my dog)!

I LOVE my new dining room chairs from Lamps Plus and will be sharing more info and pics soon. They really transformed the room and are so comfortable. I paired four rope chairs with two upholstered chairs.

Love this festive Christmas dining room with white flocked tree and those amazing rope chairs!

In my attempt to keep things more simple, I kept the big tree in it’s box and opted for this small white flocked Christmas tree that my daughter decked out with a flock of cardinals.

My husbands old shovel is on display and this cute little Santa mug pillow is from Jennifer Rizzo.

This is my favorite – my gnome cookie jar in a bed of mushrooms I found at Wayfair.

How fun is this gnome and mushroom centerpiece for Christmas

I love using wrapping paper as a table runner.

Love this festive red and white Christmas table with gnome centerpiece!

I love that each of these four Christmas plates from Wayfair has a different saying.

Love these graphic black and white Christmas plates with a different saying on each!

Love this industrial metal cabinet with glass for displaying favorites

My dad gave me this old lantern years ago.

I recently added this amazing bubble glass chandelier and it’s so pretty lit up at night.

Love the wreath with brass bell in this festive Christmas kitchen ... and that bubble chandelier is amazing!

I’m all about centerpieces this year and I had fun creating a winter wonderland in this galvanized tiered tray.

LOVE this tiered tray filled with bottle brush trees and mini cars carrying Christmas trees

I love this whimsical wreath from Wayfair that comes complete with it’s own flock of cardinals.



Open shelves get festive with favorite cookie jars.

Vintage Shiny Brites have lots of room to show off on this metal tree, formerly a store display.

An otomi stencil on a big piece of plywood is a festive backdrop for lots of layering.


I love the way the mercury glass shimmers in the firelight but my dog Sushi adds the most festive touch in her winter cap.

Love this festive Christmas mantel with otomi stencil, mercury glass snowmen and trees and the cutest long john stockings

I found a pair of these cute mercury glass snowmen at HomeGoods that pair perfectly with the trees.

I have a thing for gnomes and this pillow from Wayfair reminds me of a little Christmas elf.

Gnome Sweet Gnome pillow

I love to sit in front of a roaring fire with a glass (or two) of wine and watch my fairy jars flicker. The secret is these remote controlled fairy lights so you can hide the battery packs and we have fun pressing the remote to get eight unique effects.

Christmas fairy light jars

My vintage club chairs in their original blue velvet fabric get festive with a pair of sequined pillows.

Love this blue velvet mid century club chair with festive snowflake pillow

Our tree shows off family ornaments and I always give my girls a new one every year to add to their collections.

My husbands old pedal car is the perfect place to hold gifts.

You will find Sushi patiently waiting by the fireplace for Santa to bring her a tiara (P.S. she got her hat at HomeGoods)!

  1. oh my gosh there is SOOOO much to love! love the gnome centerpiece so much, and the mantle and anything sushi related. my favorite part is the white flocked tree with the cardinals- it’s stunning! beautiful, kelly!

    1. Thanks Cassie – you are always my biggest cheerleader and I thank you so much! My beautiful daughter decorated that tree and she is thrilled with all the love it’s getting!

  2. Eye candy! Just beautiful and I love all the vintage treasures. Is the couch in your tv room that looks to be camel colored from the online site Article, or is it Ethan Allen. I really like it. And do you know where I might get red cardinals of my own, not at hed to a wreath. Thanks for sharing. Your home is just lovely and inspirational since it is so accessible.

    1. Hi Jeanne – the sofa is from Ethan Allen. I’ve had it for over a dozen years and it’s starting to show it’s age (in part to my dog)!! The cardinals were from Home Depot years ago and aren’t available anymore but you can find similar affiliate ornaments here:

  3. Wow, Kelly, there is so much to love it’s hard to pick a favorite!! You have an amazing collection of Shiny Brites! And those stocking stretchers are the coolest. So, so festive!!

  4. Oh my goodness, your home is absolutely FANTASTIC. I had to go back and look at it a second time, as I did not want to miss anything. I have always wanted a fireplace, especially at Christmas, and you know how to decorate a fireplace. It is fabulous!!! Thank you for sharing you Beautiful home…..and so many wonderful ideas and of course, Sushi…..

  5. I always look forward to reading your post. I love your style and decorating ideas! But, I really enjoy seeing how you use Sushi in your shots. I have two Boston Terriers myself. I love the breed.
    I am interested in the kissing Boston’s in your kitchen shot. Can you tell me where they were purchased?

  6. I love everything! Love that you have used your vintage goodies with everything else…makes my heart go pitter pat! Happy Holidays! karen…

  7. Another fabulous Christmas tour full of your amazing collections … you always think outside of the box … such a cool, inviting and beautiful holiday home!

  8. Very pretty – I love all of the small touches and the simple yet festive red/white theme.

    I have yet to decorate my house. I have put out a large star with lights made of tobacco drying sticks and a vintage plastic light-up yard santa (drug it down from my father-in-law’s attic – it’s been in the family for a LONG time and had about 2 inches of dust and insulation on him!). I have about 12 Christmas trees, but will probably only put up one or two. It’s just so much work. I used to look forward to putting them all out, but it’s hard to get in the mood when we are still wearing shorts here in Texas. 🙂 One of my trees is all red cardinals, and is my favorite tree. I like that you have one like that as well. I also have one tree where I only put vintage shiny brites. 🙂

    Sushi looks adorable!

    1. 12 trees! You go girl! I didn’t have the energy to put my full size tree in my dining room so added that small white tree of cardinals. Actually, my daughter decorated that tree – she had a vision and I let her go with it! It turned out so cute! Enjoy your cardinal tree and have a very merry Christmas Glenore!

  9. I hardly know where to begin! Your tour is always one of my favorites – never cookie cutter and that’s why I love it so much! Your staircase is amazing – love that Santa so much perched up there! The squirrel with the lightbulbs – the tree in the Igloo cooler – that amazing vintage snow shovel – the red birds in the dining room – that perfect little red tea towel that is sooo Kelly Elko, and you can’t beat Sushi in a little red and white hat! Ok – enough gushing! Amazing tour!

  10. Where did you purchase the galvanized looking metal cabinet with glass doors? I have an old farmhouse with a hallway that I’d like to put a piece of industrial furniture in. Love your decorating!!

  11. Love,love, love it all. Thanks for sharing with us. Wish my decorations were all out. My feet are seriously dragging this year.

  12. Love, love, love the staircase! Did I mention I love it? And that does it, gonna get my husband to get our son’s old pedal firetruck down from the attic-your whole home looks amazing! I am so stinking happy with these holiday tours this year-has really put me in the Christmas spirit and it’s not even December- well for one more day! Merry Christmas!

  13. Kelly, sorry I am so late with your tour, catching up, maybe?? So many thing I love in your tour. The shovel, vintage balls, pillows and puppy Rudolph pillow. I could go on and on, beautiful tour.

  15. Your fireplace is so festive and charming! I just want to curl up next to it, watching the flames while eating popcorn and drinking milk (10 points if you can name that children’s book reference)! Also– your pup is adorable.

  16. I just happened upon your site???? I adore your quirky, unique, fun, beautiful style! I have a very primitive country decor, but when someone has your great decorating sense, I love the style, regardless ❤️
    Merry Christmas??

  17. Lovely home tour. Love all the antique items you have put to great use in decorating for Christmas.
    Merry Christmas and thank you for sharing with others!!!

  18. I literally want to shop in your house Kelly!!! Fantastic tour and love,love, love all the inspiration (Yes, I couldn’t say LOVE enough! The elf hats on the sillhuottes are a perfect touch and all your vintage Christmas decor is just making me drool (that pedal car is I’m sure, the girls will be arguing over years from now on who gets it!)! Time and time again you have managed to show off an entirely different Christmas home in the same house! I salute you and will forever be a fan! So honored to share the home tours with you Kelly! Cheers!

  19. Stunning!!!! I wish I could pick a favorite, maybe the little fire truck. But I have a question. We are converting our garage into a family room and I wanted to know what size those gorgeous windows are that you have in your living room. It looks like 3 together? Just wondering so I could tell my contractor. We are desperate for light down there and they look like they’d fill the garage door opening perfectly!

  20. Kelly you have such an inviting, warm, & cozy home. The holiday cheer puts a smile on my face. Such beautiful pieces combined with your crafty items create the perfect Christmas Home Sweet Home! Thank you for the sensational ideas and for sharing your home with us.

  21. I absolutely LOVE the way you decorate! Plenty of sentimental items (your husbands cute painted vintage shovel!) paired up beside the sparkly new things in a clean and festive home. You’ve done a great job. Thank you for sharing and helping with all of the great ideas. I already have many similar items to the ones you use and, paired with your perspective, this gives me new ideas and hope for creating a fresher look this December. My take away from the tour is that items “shine” more when less is used. I have been using too much and getting a look that is more cluttered and I love how clean your decorating style is. Time to break out the storage boxes so some items can be used in rotation or to send them off the thrift store so they can come to a new life with someone else. Thanks again!

    1. It’s so hard to walk the line between cluttered and not enough! I struggle every day because I love to collect things! Enjoy your finds and have a very Merry Christmas Leilani!

  22. Kelly! Everything about this tour is absolutely perfect! I can’t even decide what I love best! Although that pretty white fluffy tree with the cardinals is definitely near the top! Amazing! Hope you’re enjoying your holidays!

  23. Kelly! Your tour is so beautiful! I’m not sure which part is my favorite but I sure did love the staircase and that white tree with red birds is absolutely adorable! Merry Merry Christmas to you and your family. Thank you for linking up your tour! xox, Emily

  24. I spy your Kurt S Adler Hello Kitty ornament. I’ve gotten one for my daughter every year and she now has twelve different ones. =)

    1. I get my girls new ornaments every year! That was their Hello Kitty phase! This year, I got them each a little VW bug ornament because they just got their drivers licenses!

  26. Every little bit about your vintage-inspired eclectic combination is perfect. Everything about your home makes me feel as though it’s Christmas! This is a great idea, Kelly!
