Holiday Home Tour 2021: Entryway, Living Room, and Dining Room

Tree and bench with Christmas pillow

Last year we installed new flooring and painted all of our walls the same white throughout our entire home.  You can read more about this paint makeover here.

I am still enjoying all of the lighter and brighter feels of our home and they served as the backdrop to our Holiday home look.

Cozy blanket and pillow

Have you ever walked into a store and felt a bit overwhelmed by all the holiday/Christmas decor they have on display?

Where do you start? What will make the most impact on my home without breaking my budget? Or maybe you have several Christmas bins that need sorting through: keep, give away, and trash. What do you keep that will provide use year after year?

Christmas Entryway

I am here to help you and share five things for a lovely Christmas home year after year here. Plus, if you are learning how to trim your tree, you can read how I did mine here. I hope these will serve as helpful resources to you!

You may notice the signs like this “Emmanuel” sign to ring in the true meaning of Christmas.  We also enjoy placing nativity sets around our home. Both of these are great ways to add the message of Christ’s birth to your home too.

Christmas entryway

I shared over on Instagram a few days ago, a FREE (or very budget-friendly way) to immediately bring the holidays into your home is by adding greenery.

Simply add it to your everyday house decor items like trays, bowls, and jars.

Holiday Living Room

The Christmas tree in our living room is neutral this year with a focus on textures to make it sparkle and shine! I went for big impact pieces this year like the white flower stems, big wooden balls, and farmhouse-style signs with words.

You can take a look at my trees from years past here and here.

Protip: Download my FREE e-book on how to decorate the perfect Christmas tree. This resource includes all the steps, a supply list, and explanatory photos in one place for you, allowing you to reference back to these concepts anytime.

Living room decorated for Christmas

I did have to learn how to decorate a mantel with a TV on it this year. 

It was kind of funny because I enjoyed figuring out a couple of looks I like with the TV and first decorated my mantle with a very colorful and festive feel.

Neutral, farmhouse Christmas tree

Take a full tour of my Festive Farmhouse Mantel here.

Then, since I love decorating, I wanted to see how it would look like a neutral mantel for the holidays.

Stockings with bells on the mantle

And that is what you are seeing on this tour! Do you have one you prefer over the other? Let me know in the comments below because it will help me as I already plan for next year’s look.

A table in the living room

This space is adjoining our fireplace and mantel area.  I have loved this sign for a few years now, and simply added some candlesticks, greenery, and a jar wrapped in beads to complete the look.

Stacked Christmas artwork

This Christmas artwork is some of my favorites this year! I fell in love with these coordinating pieces. You can find the “Still” piece here and the “Dream” piece here. My pieces are 24 x 30 in the coastal white frame. Use code SHEGAVEITAGO for 10% off).

What better way to fill a vertical wall than stacked artwork?

Holiday Dining Room

Dining room Christmas tree

Our dining room chairs are all dressed up with small wreaths tied on to them by looping a wire ribbon through the back of each.

And, I have to admit it, I love Santa! So, he holds a special spot here by our dining room tree.

Up close of the tree

As my mother-in-law said, we have to have a bright and cheery tree for the children. I couldn’t agree more, so this one is really fun and full of red, banners, whimsical stems, and red/white ornaments.

Looking for a free tree skirt idea? Take a blanket (like I did with this red one here) or quilt and wrap it around the base of your tree. And for the smaller trees, place inside of a basket for some great texture.

Christmas dining room tree

This console table is in our dining room, and I loved adding layers of signs and an arched mirror to give it a modern farmhouse holiday look. 

Draping beads in a footed bowl is another easy way to add texture to a space in your home year round.
