Neutral Christmas Decor Ideas – Home Tour

This our first year in this new home and I am so excited to celebrate the holidays here! During the Christmas season, I really try to focus on experiences and making memories. Our home reflects that, I think. I use neutral Christmas decor and fresh greenery. Overall, I go for simple and cozy. So, come on in and check out our holiday home tour!

Neutral Christmas Decor

We can start things off right with a cup of coffee or cocoa, right? I’ve had this little jolly mug for ages and love taking him out each year.

Entryway Decor

Our little entry way has come a long way in the last 6 months. I like to sprinkle bits of live greenery throughout the house and made a simple Cedar swag for our front doors.

The hunter green pillow is out year round but feels especially festive this time of year (similar hunter green lumbar pillow) especially next to a few bottle brush trees. My son’s cowboy nutcracker is a keepsake I love taking out each year.

Family Room Holiday Decor

Adding bits of green and gold bells makes any space feel festive, right? These little brass bells are one of my favorite pieces each year. I’ve hung them around the house and used them to make a modern hoop wreath.

Simple Christmas Kitchen Decor

One of my favorite aspects of open shelving is being able to change them up! I added more sprigs of greenery along with some simple white Christmas trees.

We always have fruit in our house (at least, if I’m on top of it) and I love how pears and apples add a natural pop of color.

I made a tiny cedar wreath with remaining branches and added it to the cabinets for a little bit extra. Craft wire comes in handy this time of year!

Living Room Christmas Decor

Little branches in vintage bottles is my absolute favorite way to add natural, neutral Christmas decor. It’s so simple, easy, and inexpensive.

I cut these from Yew and Fir trees around our property. If I didn’t have readily available branches to cut, I’d check out Christmas tree lots which often have extra branches or trade neighbors cookies for a few trimmings.

Christmas Decor Around the House

And, of course, little twinkly lights adds that warm glow to just about anything. Even my snake plant got a little festive here! (These wire fairy lights are my absolute favorite!)

Here’s more live greenery! Simple items, like this candle and natural wood beads look pretty all year long, but put all together with fresh branches take on a more festive vibe.

The black and white table runner also looks fab year round and adds a classic holiday touch.
