Christmas Home Tour -Green Christmas Decor

Christmas Home Tour: Rustic Scandinavian Christmas Home Tour, with some modern boho touches and green Christmas decor.

Christmas Home Tour: Rustic Scandinavian Christmas Home Tour, with bit of modern boho.This Christmas Home Tour is probably my favourite post of the year.  I love decorating for Christmas, and I can’t wait to share with you what I’ve come up with this year.  I’m embracing the rustic Scandinavian look again this year -it’s my favourite and also lots of green Christmas decor.  I love the emphasis on bringing the outdoors in.  I’ve been out foraging and it’s feeling a little like a forest in here -but in the best possible sense.  😉

Seasonal Simplicity Christmas Home Tours

I’m so excited to be taking part in the Seasonal Simplicity Christmas Home Tours.  Different bloggers are sharing their homes all week long.  Be sure to check out all the links at the bottom of this post for lots of Christmas decorating inspiration.  And if you’re coming from Place Of My Taste, the last stop on the tour, a special welcome to you.

Come on in, this front console table sits by the front door and it’s dressed up for Christmas with a print from our Etsy shop -you can find it here.  I also added in a few vintage pieces.  The ornaments have been collected over years of thrifting.


Green Christmas Decor In The Dining Room

The dining room is the first room in our home.  

The Green Feature Wall

I recently changed our accent wall -you can read all about it here.  It feels so Christmas-y, but will be great all year round.

I decorated the buffet with some thrifted glass bottles -old water bottles and demi johns I’ve collected.  I thought they’d be beautiful for Christmas with some fresh greens in them, and I added a few homemade tassels.

Dining Room Table

For the dining room table, I used wood stump pieces to create a centre piece.

I’d had this idea in my mind since last year, but wood pieces can be a little hard to come by.  Luckily my sister had a friend who is an arborist and helped us out.  I love how it turned out, and you’ll see I repeated it throughout the main floor.

I painted a few of the tops different shades of green in the dining room and it’s a fun way to tie the colour in.

Bar Cart

Over on the other side of the room I have a little bar cart ready for some Christmas cheer.

Another element I repeated in my Christmas decor this year is glass bottles full of fresh greens and this year with lots of green Christmas decor, the green glass is perfect.  

Vintage green glass bottles with evergreen pieces.

This is one of my favourite elements, this green vintage trough that I picked up at an antique fair this fall, filled with vintage bottles and more fresh greens I collected on a few winter walks.

Now into the living room, but first the stairs.

The Stairs

This was a fun idea inspired by Scandinavian decor, where they often use paper ornaments, like the classic stars.  I used honeycomb party balls and I love how it turned out.  Here’s the view from the other side.

I was lucky to find an independent dollar store that had the honeycomb balls.  I tied them with clear fishing line to start.  Next I layered in some fresh pine boughs, and used a little more fishing line where I need to.

I kept mine neutral.  I used mainly white, but added a little black and grey for some depth.

The stairs are right beside our corner fireplace.

The Mantel

The paper trees tie in well with the paper balls on the stairs.  And I also repeated the wood stump pieces and the vintage glass bottles with fresh greens.  I went out into the woods and found some grapevine and twisted it into a nice big wreath for here, and then added some fresh greens.  The bells are a great addition.

I also layered the macrame bunting I made –see how here, with some green wood beads and felt ball garland.  The beads were the perfect way to tie in my green Christmas decor theme for this year.

Advent Calendar

At the bottom of the stairs there’s a little table that has our advent calendar on it.  It’s a wooden one, with a tree that you add a little wooden animal to each day.  It’s so cute, and every little animal is delightful.

This collection of trees is so pretty here.  And my little house shelves got dressed up with more trees, this time white mini bottle brush ones.

In the living room I added more green Christmas decor with lots of cozy pillows.

This is the perfect spot to curl up for a Christmas movie.  I am in love with this cozy new Charcoal Muslin Throw With Fringe from Natures Sweet Creation.   It’s so soft and perfect for snuggling up with.  Everything in Melissa’s Etsy shop is beautiful and so well made.  I know we’ll enjoy this beautiful piece for a long time.

Christmas Tree

Over on the other side of the room is our Christmas tree.

I love a sparse Scandi style of tree and this one is a beauty.

The pretty paper ornaments help to tie in with the stair decorations.  The beautiful old fashioned Christmas tree candle holders are something I’ve been thinking about adding the last couple years and was lucky enough to find at the thrift store this year.  I won’t light them of course, but even un-lit they are so beautiful.

Vintage Christmas tree candles

The tree decorations are very simple.  Just the paper ornaments some glass and white balls, paper pinecones, the candles, and some pompom fringe garland.  I should perhaps add a paper star to the top.

And more glass bottles, with these fun lights.

And Oscar always seems to want to be in on the home tours, so since he kept getting in my shots I asked him to pose.

Coffee Table

On the coffee table more wood pieces and faux snow.  I love these little pinecone lights, they’re a fun dollarama find.

Pass Through

In the pass through I hung a beautiful fresh pine branch.  And then I added some bells.

The bells are from the Target dollar spot from a little cross border shopping trip and I love them.

Green Christmas Decor In The Kitchen

And that leads us into the kitchen.  We gave our kitchen a facelift a few years ago.  We took down our cupboards and added open shelves and subway tile -you can read all about it here.  Now I love decorating our shelves for each season.

These shelves have to work hard since we have quite a small kitchen, and no pantry.  All our everyday dishes are here, but there’s still room for some fun seasonal touches and this year some green Christmas decor.

The vintage finds are so fun.

Over on the other side we have a coffee and tea station set up.

The large plastic Santa is a new thrift store find, and I kind of love him.

I also found a few Santa mugs a few years ago, but I’m definitely on the hunt for more vintage ones.

This little spot on the counter is looking cute and ready for Christmas baking.

And the baking is already well underway here.  My daughters have already made gingerbread houses and cookies and they’re adorable.

I love these new mugs too.  Another cross border shopping find at Walmart, and so inexpensive.  I got a whole set for my hot chocolate station.

Hot Chocolate Station

My girls love having a little hot chocolate station set up here.  It’s often a treat for them after school, and then they take it with them and sip it while they work on their homework.

Christmas Hot Chocolate Station

The poster is another one from our Etsy shop -you can find it here.  It’s from that old Christmas special Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer.  I love how the message of the show is that there is a place for all the “misfits”.  It’s such a fun reminder of that message.

Kitchen Table

On the kitchen table I repeated the wood again, but this time incorporated some other elements.  I used cloches and little paper houses my daughter made, along with moss, pinecones, and mini lights.

The paper houses were a quick Cricut project, you can find the pattern for them here.

I used a white chalkboard marker to add some snowflakes and “let it snow” to the cloches.  It will wash off afterward.

And there ends my tour.  Thanks so much for hanging in with me through all these pictures.  I hope you enjoyed them and found a little inspiration.  My biggest tips are to repeat elements to make the whole area feel cohesive, and to bring the outdoors in. It’s so good to get outside collecting, and the price is always right too. 😉

  1. DOn’t tell the others, but this is hands down my favorite!!!!! that new feature wall is perfection and your dining room is amazing. Here I thought I was going to be so sad about the butterflies no longer there, but I am A-OK. 😉 I just love your fun style so much! Oh, and that staircase with the paper lanterns is epic! I used lanterns in Wilder’s room but I went colorful for him since he’s a toddler. 🙂

  2. You are so creative and your style is fresh and unique. I always love seeing all the amazing ideas you come up with. The tablescape has to be my favorite one I’ve seen all season. Every detail you shared is so inspiring and fun! xoxo

  3. I love all the wood pieces and the way you brought the outside in. Very warm and comfortable. Thank you for sharing on the blog top. Merry Christmas, Dannyelle!

  4. Cassie, thank you so much for the lovely comment. So glad you like the new feature wall too.
    Merry Christmas, Dannyelle
