Holiday home tour in our 1700s farmhouse!

Welcome to my Holiday home tour in my 1700s farmhouse!

I am beyond excited to be welcoming you into my home all decked out for Christmas!  I hope it brings you joy and inspiration.

 

Bloggers Best Holiday Home Tour 2020

Today is day three of the Blogger’s Best Holiday Home Tour! I’ve enjoyed all the other inspiration so far! And a big thank you to  Mansa and Kelly for putting this all together! 

If you are hopping over from My Wee Abode’s home tour, welcome! Isn’t her home gorgeous?!

I’m Kori and I live in rural New Hamshire with my Husband, three kids, beautiful farm dog Mona, and a bunch of pigs and chickens! I love all things home decor and decorating!

Come check out how I’ve decorated for Christmas!

Let’s get started…

I try very hard to stick to the charm of my old home when decorating.  We’ve got 6 fireplaces, warm wooden exposed beamed ceilings, and wide plank flooring. So when I decorate in general I try and stick to this color palette (warm colors instead of cool). So decorating for Christmas is so fun! I get to use lots of reds, plaids, and natural elements.

The sitting room

Our sitting room is one of my favorite rooms in our house. And it happens to be the room In which our tree is in! I love adding new artwork to my home, especially at Christmas time! Several of these printables are available in my shop. 

I also love to layer textures in my home. I’ve added several pillows, rugs, and throws to add color and warmth to this room.

We also have a game table set up in here so the kids can play board games and do puzzles all winter long. There isn’t a TV in this room. We try and keep things on the quieter side in here.

I like to grab a cup of coffee and cozy up with a good book.

 

The dining room

When we designed the dining room table (my husband built it), I had one thing in mind… Christmas dinner! I wanted to be able to fit my entire family at the table for dinner without having a kid’s table.

Decorating is fun in this space. I try and keep things on the more natural side by adding in lots of greenery and pops of copper for color!

We also have a large coffee/hot cocoa bar on the buffet! My kids enjoy coming home from school and helping themself to a large cup of hot cocoa. I enjoy making myself a hot latte with my Nespresso maker! It makes the most wonderful lattes!

 

The Entryway

We have two entryways in our home. This one is to the front door and I’ve decorated it very simply for Christmas.

I found these reindeer at Target this year and I had to grab them knowing they’d look amazing on my entryway table.

I also added a little swag to my mirror above my entryway table.

Pine cones are a great way to add some Christmas decor to any bowl. Plus they can stick around far after Christmas and still work as “winter decor”.

 

The Family room

The Family room is where we all hang out. It’s where our TV is. It’s where our leather recliners are which is where you’ll find my husband.

For Christmas, I had to keep it simple and clutter-free in here or else everyone would be moving things around way too much.

Adding cozies was the most important thing in this room. Lots of pillows and throw blankets.  No matter where you are on the couch… a throw blanket is in reach!

 

The Master

For my Master bedroom, I went really simple. I added a wreath above my bed and a tree throw pillow.

I didn’t add any reds to this space because I LOVE my brown duvet cover in here and I didn’t want it to clash. So instead I added lots of greens.

 

The Guest room

Now, I don’t know if my guest bedroom will get used this year – But I decided to decorate anyway! I found this adorable noel ticking pillow at TJ Maxx and I had to grab it for this room!

I recently added this rug in here and I love the coziness and warmth it adds.

  10. Your home looks so cozy, Kori… and I can’t believe you have SIX fireplaces! Lucky you! My fave has to be the guest room! Just love the tree and the red on the bed. And your table centerpiece is perfectly light and airy, too!

  11. I can’t believe you have 6 fireplaces! I had to make a faux mantel, just to be able to decorate it. I love your home so much. Every single detail is so beautiful. I was so inspired and have decided that I need to redo my guest room! LOVE LOVE LOVE!

  12. Your home looks beautiful decked out for Christmas , Kori! I love that you live in a house from the 1700s. That is amazing! Your husband did a fabulous job on your dining room table. It’s wonderful to have a table big enough for everyone. Did you know that the white container in your entryway filled with pinecones is a chamber pot? I only know because my mom has her grandmother’s.
