Welcome to my Classic Red and White Christmas Home Tour! With all the restrictions around COVID, sadly this year we won’t be welcoming any friends or family to our home. That’s why I wanted this year’s Christmas to be extra festive and special for our own family and adding pops of red seemed like the perfect way! I have always shied away from red in here as I prefer to do more of a natural or modern spin on my holiday decor. Turns out I absolutely love it and so does my family, so I’d say it’s a win-win! I’m joining some of my talented blogging friends for the Seasonal Simplicity Series Christmas home tour week, so if you are coming from Ashley’s beautiful home over at Cherished Bliss or are new here, welcome! If you’ve stopped by before, I’m so happy to have you back. Let me show you my front entrance…
I always love having a fresh wreath on the door that will last all season long! I added a porch pot filler with holiday greenery, birch logs, and pine cones, and this festive red doormat.
Excited to welcome you inside!
This is my favorite view in our home during the holidays! I absolutely love having the fireplace on and curling up with a cup of coffee or a glass of wine in here.
Since this room already has lots of white, adding pops of red for Christmas made a lot of sense and was incredibly easy! I added a single red pillow to the sofa and on the coffee table, al floral arrangement pops with touches of red. I kept the rest of the decor on the table simple: a white ceramic house, festive candle, and snowball ornaments in a wooden bowl.
I decorated my tree with strips of ribbon vertically this year for the first time. I usually drape the ribbon around it like garland, but I love this effect and how it turned out! I cut the ribbon in 2 and 4-foot lengths and alternated around the tree to achieve this look. You could also use different widths of the same ribbon for even more variety.
I added white and red ornaments and a few of these cupcakes for just the right amount of red.
On the staircase, I added a fresh garland with mismatched red and white ribbon. I love the look of a fresh garland on the staircase! Since it doesn’t last long, I recommend purchasing twice as much as you need. Keep the extra outdoors and replace it just before Christmas.
While you’re having a peek around, check out my cute apron and, may I offer you a holiday cookie?
And yes, if you’re thinking that holiday cookie looks an awful lot like my Christmas mantel, you are 100% correct!! I can’t get over how good it is!! If you missed it, be sure to check out My Classic Christmas Mantel with White and Red
A few extra touches like these snowy trees and this neutral paid throw add some whimsy and coziness to the living room.
Now let me show you my holiday table!
I’ve always wanted to do a fresh garland on the table and I’m so pleased with this alternative to a floral arrangement.
A simple red napkin and holiday cookie are atop each place setting.
It wouldn’t be the holidays without a little bit of bubbly!
Let’s head upstairs to the master bedroom.
Snow white sheets and duvet cover with just a touch of red.
I love having a tree in the bedroom! I decided not to decorate this one as I’m really enjoying the simplicity of it.
Another festive floral arrangement and scented candle look simple and elegant on the bedside table.
