11 Christmas Home Decorating Styles (70 Pics

Christmas Home Tour Decor

Hello and welcome to our Christmas Home Tour and our annual 12 Days of Holiday Homes!   

Thank you to our hosts 11 Magnolia Lane and Evolution of Style and this year’s  sponsor, Lynch Creek Farm


This year, I’m sharing something different and very special to me.  Instead of sharing my own Christmas home tour, I’m sharing my next door neighbor’s home that I have helped decorate over the last few weeks for the CASA Christmas Parade of Homes that is held in my town.

Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) watch over and advocate for abused and neglected children and the organization and volunteers do amazing life-changing work for children in my East Texas community.  When my neighbor Brittany asked me to help decorate her home for the Parade of Homes this year, I was beyond thrilled to say yes!

I also want to tell you guys that today’s post is actually “Part 1” of the tour. We decorated every room in the home and it’s way too many images for me to share in just one post without having trouble with the post loading. So next week, I’ll be sharing Part 2. 

Meet Brittany and Justin, my next door neighbors and they are the cutest and sweetest couple (and the best neighbors) that you could ever meet!

Their home is a beautiful modern farmhouse style with a mix of stone siding, metal roof and a dreamy wrap around porch.

The CASA Christmas Home Parade was actually just last night and after about three weeks of planning and fluffing, Brittany and I finished up decorating early in the morning yesterday. 

The Porch

When Brittany and I first came up with our decorating plan, we both share a love of incorporating naturals into our Christmas decor and we also love the bones of a space and layering based on that. We share an amazing backyard area that is basically a forest of every kind of East Texas tree, bush and berries that you can imagine, which is where we clipped greenery for all of our Christmas decor.

Brittany’s porch is exactly what you would think of when it comes to a Southern modern farmhouse and we knew we had to have a grand natural garland layered with cedar, magnolia leaf and long leaf pine.

Brittany owns a beautiful home decor shop in our town of Lufkin, Texas called House & Clay and she sells so many beautiful things including beautiful garden pots and urns.  We used these gorgeous urns filled with narrow trees for the front door.

Brittany recently had her trim and wood window panes painted black and the buffalo plaid silk ribbon mixed with the sage wreaths with berries on the window came together exactly as we envisioned and really pop against the black.

For the front door wreath, Lynch Creek Farm gave us a beautiful fresh noble fir and salal leaf  26″ Silver Deluxe Wreath that we added gorgeous silk buffalo plaid ribbon and fresh eucalyptus. We also slipped in bundles of sage.

We decided that we wanted garland on the swing on the porch wrapped and hanging from the chain. We weren’t sure it would look good but we decided after adding the fresh cedar that we love it!

For the entryway, we did a tabletop tree in a pewter champagne bucket that I found a few years ago at Homegoods.

Main Living Room

Brittany and Justin’s home is completely open with the most beautiful pine beams and a church-like ceiling that is breathtaking when you walk in.

For the main Christmas tree in the living room, we did a flocked tree with beautiful blue/gray velvet ribbon and a mix of metallic ornaments.

Eucalyptus was the only greenery that we bought and did not cut from our backyards and we loved the idea of a very simple eucalyptus garland on the mantle mixed with the stone.

The stone fireplace is so beautiful!

Brittany and I had so much fun decorating and it’s such a joy to be able to do it for such a worthwhile organization.  Next week, I will be sharing “Part 2” of the home tour.
