It that most wonderful time of the year! I look forward to this all year long. Today, I am sharing a my Natural and Modern Christmas Home Tour and have been giddy to do so.
This is a GIANT post so maybe grab a cup of coffee or glass of wine to enjoy. I am honored to be joining a large group of super talented bloggers to share all of our home tours together. The links to their gorgeous posts are linked at the bottom of the post!!
I have been transitioning my faux greenery and garlands to using all-natural evergreens for our Christmas decorating. I appreciate that it is natural (and smells so divine…the pine and cedar scents are such a delight!). I especially appreciate that I do not have to store any of it.

This post is also sponsored by O’Toole’s Garden Centers but all of my designs and commentary are my own.
Once Christmas is over, we just take it down and burn in our outdoor wood-burning fire pit…leaving no footprint.
For this season, I bought over 105 linear feet of fresh garland for indoor and outdoor! Oh, my!! I use it throughout our home!
Let’s get on with the tour…starting with our front porch…
My Natural and Modern Christmas Home Tour
Your front porch is the first impression for family, friends, and, most importantly…you neighbors! Living here in Colorado, I really like featuring a natural, wintery look.

You can see all of the details for how I put created these Easy and Natural Front Porch Christmas Decorations HERE. It was all really simple, believe it or not!
~ Living Area ~
In our living room, I have mostly refurnished this whole area in the last several months featuring some warmer tones and a lot more seating. Since I do not have a mantel in this room, I usually decorate our coffee table like a mantel. This new coffee table is quite a bit smaller than the two coffee tables I used to have here. This allowed for more seating.
I absolutely LOVED using fresh evergreen garland for this table. I draped it across the table and let it “pool” onto the ground for added drama.
This was really simple to create. Once I placed the garland on the table, I randomly set in the Christmas Cone Trees and then a few color-coordinated Christmas Ornaments for a festive flair. A variety of votive candle holders topped off the look.
My daughter has really wanted a flocked tree so I indulged her a few years ago. Considering the changes in the furnishings, I decided to create a rustic look with this tree using greens, browns, and rust colors. A bit outside of the box but I love how it compliments the new design of the room.
A few more shots in the living room…simple and natural was the plan. I bought several bunches of cedar from O’Toole’s Garden Center to use in little spots like this. It really adds such a festive touch for such little money!
I love decorating this mirror to balance the Christmas Tree in this area! And, isn’t the reflection it gives is so divine and happy!!
~ Dining Room ~
My typical MO for designing our Christmas trees in the last several years has utilized less traditional colors. Our daughter has been a little frustrated with me since she hasn’t felt like our trees are “Christmassy” enough. She has thought that they were beautiful but not to her taste.
This is a HUGE deal in our home and one that thrilled our daughter when she came home for Thanksgiving!
Our dining room is very neutral (on purpose). It is definitely the best area in our home to add in pops of red. I have other accents of gold in this room, so this is precisely why I decided to use gold as a secondary color.
For our buffets in the dining room, I really enjoy decorating to coordinate them with the rest of the room. Since the tree has a lot going on, I decided to keep the decor on the buffets quite simple and natural but still elegant to keep with the style of the room.
~ Kitchen & Breakfast Areas ~
Just a few, little wintery Christmas touches did the trick in here…
I have refurnished both of the spaces where our other dining tables sit. I decided that I wanted these tables to be simple and modern to coordinate with the aesthetic in these areas. A home can get cluttered really quickly with Christmas decorations which is why I wanted to keep things simple, yet still elegant.
This is the third dining area we have. I made sure to coordinate this table with the one above.
~ Other Special Areas ~
These little spots sit in our sunroom that will become my new laundry room and storage area for all of my entertaining pieces.
And, finally…our stairwell!! I am obsessed with using fresh evergreens for this area! Because the mixed greenery is so dramatic, you really don’t need to do much to set them up for Christmas. I simply coordinated the ribbons with the color palette in our stairwell.
Unfortunately, I cannot shoot our basement decorated for Christmas because it is too dark down there. Be sure to watch my stories for some video on that area coming soon!
