Christmas Home Tour 2014 -Rustic Mixed Metals

Rustic Mixed Metals Christmas Home Tour: Tour a house all dressed with beautiful mixed metals for Christmas.  Inspiration to mix gold, silver, copper, and brass this year.

Welcome, I’m so glad you’re here today.  I’ve been working away, crafting and creating and can’t wait to show you around and wish you a very Merry Christmas.  Let’s start at the front door, with my mixed metals Christmas front porch.  I’m loving the combo of silver, gold, and copper, and there’s lots more to see inside.

Come on in where it’s warmer.  At the front door, on the console table, I’ve set up a pretty metal tree, and added some ornaments, in fact they’re over flowing!

Along the half wall at the front door, a few pretty candles.

Here is the hot chocolate bar, all set up for guests to enjoy when they arrive on a cold day.

And this leads into the dining room.

My theme this year, is mixed metals so you’ll see gold, copper, and silver used over and over to tie everything together.  I’ve also used lots of natural materials like wood, and pinecones to create a rustic feel.  On the dining room table I added gold, copper, and silver leaf to some rustic wood log candle holders.

Behind the dining room table, is one of my favourite projects of late, a Christmas Gallery Wall.

I found some great printables on-line, and gathered up lots of other fun pieces to include.  I’ll be sharing all the details next week, but here’s a few more pictures.

I’m in love.  Now onto the living room.

There’s a little surprise in the stairway.  I thought it’d be fun to do something a little different from the traditional garland on the stair railing this year, and fill this fun little space between the stairs with a Christmas star mobile.

It’s a long way down.  The how-to will be on the blog soon.

On to the living room, and our beautiful Christmas tree.  I’m really liking the combo of all the metals.

I used lots of gold, silver, and copper ornaments, and then added ribbon in all those colours too.  Another fun copper element is using magnolia leaves in bunches, since they’re copper coloured on the back.  One detail I really like this year, are the mini chalkboards with inspirational words on them.

I already had lots of gold and silver decorations, but the copper is new.  I DIY’d a few copper ornaments, these ones are clear glass balls filled with some copper wire scrub brushes, that I pulled apart.   So easy, inexpensive, and pretty.

I also used the cement stars decorated with gold, silver, and copper leaf that I made here.

In the living room, there’s a cozy spot to curl-up by the fire.

One of my favourite copper details this year, is the pretty copper kettle and mugs on the ottoman.  Makes me hum, “Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens,
Bright copper kettles and warm woollen mittens….these are a few of my favourite things.”

This year our living room shelves are filled with some of my mini Christmas tree collection.

And on the other side of the room, our cozy couch, piled high with pretty pillows.

We have a pass through from our living room into the kitchen, and this year I added a branch, and hung a few pretty decorations on it.  Underneath is a collection of candles in different metals.  So simple and so pretty.

In the kitchen, I added a little greenery and ribbon to the two end chairs.

The chalk board has a sweet little Christmas message.

And on the table a simple centre piece, with my Christmas tree in a teapot, that I made here, and some candles.

The kitchen got a few Christmas touches too, like a few ornaments on the counter.

And on the other counter, my famous Christmas candy, get the recipe here.  When this candy get’s made at our house, it’s a sure sign that Christmas is coming!

And if you have to do dishes…and I’m afraid we do…this is at least a sweet spot.

Thanks so much for coming by for my little Christmas House Tour.  I hope you enjoyed my rustic mixed metals, and got inspired to make your place as cozy and welcoming as you can.  On Wednesday, I’ll be sharing our basement family room all decorated in winter whites, and Friday we’re upstairs.  Hope to see you soon.

With a house all decorated for Christmas, life really is a party!
