A Christmas Farmhouse Home Tour…welcome to Old Salt Farm!
Christmas is my absolute favorite time to decorate. The trees, lights, blankets, greenery, ornaments….I could just on and on. Everything feels more special, and more cozy. Simple decor is always my favorite, but even more so this year.
Christmas Farmhouse Home
The garland and wreath come from a local tree farm, and they’re just gorgeous. I feel like they stand on their own, so I just added a simple mat (I found at Target a few years ago) and a bucket of logs by the door.
I kept a few favorites in the kitchen from years past, including the milk and cookies sign over the sink, and of course, our hot chocolate station. I love it! A wreath is usually over these windows, but decided on garland instead to switch things up. It was easy–I just rested it on the curtain rod!
Faux trees on the island and next to the sink were the focus of the room.
I used the wood crate in my fall decor as well–I think I might use it every season! A good friend found it for me, and it’s perfect for the island.
I love to add boxwood wreaths to the back of my dining room chairs, and I’ve done it for several years now. This year I used a satin moss green ribbon instead of a red or red gingham, and I like the change. (Although one of my girls was so funny…and asked what happened to the red!)
The trees are one of my favorite parts of the room! I love having them lined up on the table.
I designed this sign, and the uber talented Between You and Me Designs created it for me…and it’s for sale in their shop!! It’s so perfect in this space, and works so well with the trees on the table.
For the past years I used real garland on the stairs, but last year I invested in a faux garland. I love the look of real the best, but it just dried up so fast that I was cleaning up needles all the time. I also leave my decor up for awhile, so that’s part of it. But who knows, I might switch back to real one year!
The dining room is just off the family room, so we can see the tree and the fireplace from there, and I just love it. One day I’d love to have a fireplace in my kitchen/ dining area!
We’ve had quite the experience this year with our tree in the family room. We cut down a tree every year, and it’s a tradition that we look forward to each Christmas. This year we came home with a MOUSE in the tree, which I only happened to see by chance in a dark entryway. Chaos ensued, as we chased him into a corner, then armed ourselves with towels, cardboard boxes and a bucket to try and catch him. Thankfully we did, and then released him out into the woods.
The next night, our decorated tree fell over in the middle of the night! It’s super wide and tall, and the base that has always been sufficient just couldn’t hold it. And…it’s 2020, so it makes sense!
But now everything is fine, and it’s beautiful.
We decorated a tree in the library too…it’s a Balsam Hill tree I got last year, and it’s perfect in the the room. It’s a “fancier” tree–I like the cozy and homey tree in our family room.
Last year was also the year I added a tree to my bedroom, and I can never go back! I absolutely love it.
The piano room got just a few touches of greenery…with the blue rug, it needs to stay pretty neutral. I add garland to the chandelier, and a couple of trees on the piano, along with a wreath hanging on the door.
In the mudroom, I added garland above the window, a few pillows on the bench, and a simple wreath on the back door. It’s the perfect place to sit and watch the snow fall!
In the basement we have our little Charlie Brown tree…we’ve had it since we were first married. Even though it’s definitely seen better times, I just can’t get rid of it. The kids love decorating it with all of the ornaments they’ve made over the years.
Even the barn got a little Christmas love…and new solar barn lights!!!
