In this post: Getting ready to decorate your home for Christmas? Come see our modern farmhouse dining room filled with cozy Christmas decor…and steal some ideas for your own space!
Once again I’m excited to be sharing a part of our home as part of the Seasonal Simplicity tours. If you’re coming from Krista’s house, or any of the other tours, welcome! We’re so glad you’re here! Today we’re sharing our modern farmhouse style dining room filled with cozy Christmas decor.
Welcome to Home Made Lovely!
If you’re new here, I’m Shannon. I’m a total homebody, child of God, momma to three pretty awesome teenagers and happy wife to Dean.
I started Home Made Lovely years ago (originally called AKA Design) with the hopes of helping women DIY the home decor they loved, while keeping in mind everyday budgets. Over time, Home Made Lovely grew to also include all the things related to home. Things like simple family recipes, seasonal decor ideas and cleaning hacks.
My favorite thing to do is help women create a lovely home for themselves and their families…on a regular, everyday budget!
Our Modern Farmhouse Dining Room Filled with Cozy Christmas Decor
But even the wood chargers, linen runner and white plates are pieces we use often in the dining room. The only purchases were a few plaid side plates from Walmart (shown under the napkins on the table), the red typewriter from Michaels and some fresh greenery. Oh and the wooden toy horse decor from Homesense on the table too – I’ve wanted one of those to add to our farmhouse decor for ages!
Then of course, there’s the ‘sideboard’ that Dean built, originally for the entryway. It holds our two lamps – they really add to the cozy factor in here at night – and a few fun decor things.
If you’ve ever been here in real life, or if you’ve been around the blog long, you may know that our dining room is wide open from our entry (which we haven’t decorated yet because I can’t decide what to do with the space), a small landing and our stairs too.
I deliberately kept it simple again here this year, with the addition of a faux garland on the railing. I added a few sprigs of real eucalyptus and magnolia leaves, as well as some faux berry picks. You can be sure I kept them high enough that our little doggie can’t reach them…and he is never left unattended in the space. (Eucalyptus is bad for dogs if ingested.)
By using a faux garland and just adding some real elements, the cost year over year is kept to a minimum. But the effect is still beautiful. Of course, you could use all faux greenery and stems too. I’ve simply ziptied everything to the railing and hidden the zipties.
