My Farmhouse Christmas Decor & Home Tour
Take a peek into Old Salt Farm, and see my favorite farmhouse Christmas decor. Simple touches throughout our home and that bring coziness and warmth, from the mantel to the front porch.
We were able to go cut down our Christmas trees right before Thanksgiving, which is my favorite time. I love the glow of the tree lights while we’re eating dinner, and it signals the start of the holidays at our house. This year we cut down three trees, and I really wanted to do four, but we ran out of daylight! I added a tree in the kitchen this year, and I’m in love. I’m looking forward to showing you around…welcome to Old Salt Farm.

Farmhouse Christmas Decor: Home Tour 2022
My style is cozy, but on the minimal side. I love focusing on a few simple decorations that really add to the space. Greenery is one of my favorite ways to do that, through wreaths, garland, and small trees. Throw pillows and blankets in certain fabrics and prints–gingham, grain stripe, check, ticking, and tartan plaid–are easy ways to add Christmas farmhouse charm. I tend to use the same farmhouse Christmas decor from year to year (budget and aesthetics), but will sometimes move it around the house!
I love adding greenery for contrast to our white house and all the white snow we receive. Fresh pine wreaths and garland are my annual go-to for exterior decor. This year I added a simple green silk ribbon to most of my wreaths, both indoors and outdoors. Simple touches are my favorite.
With a bunch of kids in my kitchen all the time, I need to balance decor with function. I added a few trees on the island in a vintage wooden box, and a several smaller trees on the counter. I go back and forth between garland or a wreath above the sink, and this year I went for the wreath!
Hanging wreaths from the backs of the dining room chairs as become tradition. I alternate between a two sets, but usually use the mini boxwood wreaths. With red and cream striped ribbon, it brings simple charm to the space.
I found the Christmas trees a few years ago, and thought they’d be perfect on the table. For years I’d do different things in that space, but I love them so much, I don’t know that I’ll change them out now! I like to bunch up the table runner instead of leaving it straight–gives it a slightly different look. Seems cozier to me!
The tartan throw is a favorite of mine that I’ve had for several years. I find it moving around the house because I love it so many different spaces! It’s no longer available where I got it, but I’ve linked a similar one below.
We added a tree in the kitchen/dining area this year, and now I don’t know why we didn’t do it sooner! I adore how it makes the whole space look and feel–and the lights are always on.
This might be one of my favorite trees we’ve cut down for this room. It very well could be the tallest! My original plan was to use all cream and green on this tree, but my kids insisted we still have red. So that’s what I did! I used the same red and cream stripe ribbon that’s on my dining chairs and tied them on branches. With ornaments and my favorite cream tree bunting wrapped around the tree, it turned out beautifully!
Greenery along the mantel and cream Christmas stockings, a tartan throw, and red and cream throw pillows keep it simple and neutral, but with a pop of red. I layered two sets of garland for thickness and variety–eucalyptus and pine.
I like keeping this room very neutral, highlighting whites and creams. It’s very calm and peaceful, perfect for a reading spot!
Thanks so much for joining me! A very Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays from our family to yours! Find me on Instagram for even more farmhouse inspiration.
