Pink Christmas Decor Home Tour: a boho rustic Scandinavian style home gets touches of pink and vintage for Christmas this year.
Our Christmas Home Tour is always one of my favourite posts of the year. This year, with the year that it’s been I’ve added a little colour to my usual neutrals. A little pink Christmas decor is exactly what we need this year to add a little cheer. It’s such a funny year. Usually I’m prepping for Christmas guests but there won’t be any this year. I’m still decorating though, just for us. To make our house feel a little cozier and special this time of year.
I’m joining some of my favourite bloggers as part of the Seasonal Simplicity Christmas Home Tour. Be sure to check out the tours from all week at the bottom of this post. If you’re coming from The Tattered Pew welcome. Isn’t Kelly’s home just beautiful and looks so amazing all dressed up for Chrsitmas.
I decorated our front porch with some fresh seasonal greens. It was fun to head to the woods and find some treasures to bring home.
I love to decorate around the door with some collected grape vine. The grapevine is held it in place with some 3M hooks. I’ve also added in some pine branches and lights.
A few birch logs and lanterns lend a cozy touch.
I love how my outdoor Christmas arrangement turned out this year. We added some fresh cedar, fir, and pine. It’s topped off with some branches of curly willow, from my mom’s garden, and some stars and pinecones.
This wreath got a wintery makeover -see the summer version and how I made the clay mushrooms here. I’ve re-painted the mushrooms with some pretty pink -a sign of things to come inside. And then I topped it off with some pretty iridescent snow.
The Dining Room
Inside the front door we have a little console table. This vintage card catalogue is a favourite, along with the paper trees. The candlesticks are thrift store finds, along with the pink candles.
In the dining room I’ve added a few more Christmas touches.
I’ve added some more of the paper trees on the dining room table, and more of the brass candlesticks.
One of my favourites this time of year is this old wood dough bowl, filled with vintage ornaments and some lights. This year especially, it seems like a few vintage and traditional touches are the perfect way to make us all feel comforted by a little nostalgic Christmas.
Over on the buffet, my vintage bottles, demijohns, and carboys are looking beautiful all dressed up for Christmas. I’ve added a few fresh greens and I couldn’t resist using these beautiful dried grasses from Everything Frivolous again.
Over on the other side of the room I’ve got a pretty little Charlie Brown pine tree in a demijohn basket. There’s also a vintage cardholder filled with antique Christmas postcards I picked up at my favourite antique market. And lastly in our trio of trees is the black iron one with a few precious vintage ornaments.
Our dining room leads past the stairs and into the living room. This year on the stairs I started with this DIY macrame garland -see how I made it here. It’s layered with a faux fir garland, some pink velvet ribbon, and some twinkle lights. Lastly I added this DIY star garland -see how I made this one here.
At the bottom of the stairs, this is a favourite little spot. The little animals are part of an advent calendar and another forest friend joins them each day leading up to the big event. The little house shelves are a dollar store find, and I’ve filled them with a little collection of vintage creamers. For Christmas I’ve added in some bottle brush trees and a strand of iridescent sequences. When I decided to add a little pink this year, these old wool pink blankets seemed like the perfect cozy addition.
The Living Room
Over in the living room, this year’s tree is a stunner. I like a one that’s not too full, cut down in the forest. I’ve dug out all my vintage ornaments this year, and the tree is looking so beautiful. The vintage topper is the perfect cherry on top. And I’ve also added some iridescent clear glass and white ornaments, and a few paper ones to tie in with my paper trees in the dining room. Lastly I finished it off with some white satin ribbon, and some thin pink velvet ribbon. It’s simple and perfect.
Over on the other side of the room the couch is dressed up with some cozy pillows and a throw blanket all ready for Christmas movie watching.
On the coffee table added an eclectic collection of trees, candles, retro looking deer, and a disco ball for good measure. It’s all very cozy at night with the candles lit.
The living room leads into the kitchen and this pass through is always a favourite spot to decorate. This year I found the beautiful branch out on a forest walk and brought it home thinking of this special spot. I’ve tied it up with a little thread and decorated it with some more vintage ornaments, and some tinsel.
Over on the fireplace, I’ve tried to repeat lots of elements. There’s more macrame garland and faux fir garland, layered with more of the tree branch and more DIY star garland. I’ve also added more pretty trees, and more vintage brass found thrifting. I’ve also included this fun art work. You can buy this print in our etsy shop here. I had it printed at my local office store, and I love it here. It’s from the old cartoon Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer. Remember the one about the Yukon Cornelious, Hermy, the Abominable Snow Man, and the Island of misfit toys? It reminds us that there really is a place for all the misfits and that we all have a unique gift to share with the world.
The Eating Area
And lastly over in the kitchen, the table is looking so pretty. I’ve added some more iridescent touches for Christmas. I love the contrast of the cool iridescent glass with the warm and cozy knit runner.
Over on the little side cupboard more trees. There is also this fun poster. I added a bit of a gingerbread house theme in the kitchen all inspired by this fun poster. It’s also a print you can purchase in our etsy shop, and I it’s been printed as an inexpensive colour engineer print at the office supply store. The little tree is another real one, and decorated with mini lights and more of the DIY star garland.
These adorable little plates are a new find, I love the little scene of skiers, skaters, and dog walkers.
Over on the other side of the kitchen, this is the view back into the living room.
I love adding little Christmas touches like this one.
And I love how my kitchen shelves look this Christmas. I found the pretty iridescent stars in the party decoration section. And there’s more gingerbread. We made the little houses from a kit, but didn’t use the candies, and just added white icing. The gingerbread tea towel is another favourite touch.
The Santa mugs were a fun addition last year. The iridescent champagne flutes are so pretty on the shelf, and will be perfect for enjoying some sparking wine during the holidays.
This year the little bit of pink, iridescence, and vintage are making it feel so warm, and happy, and cozy. Just what we needed. I hope you’re filling your home with cozy and happy decor this year too, while we’re all home for Christmas.
