I don’t mean to brag, but this Christmas decor tour 2022 edition is the best my shop has ever looked!
Ever since I was a little girl, I have always wanted a beautiful Christmas holiday in my home and my clients’ homes.
But I’ll tell you, for the past two decades, it’s been so difficult to achieve a cohesive look with your Christmas decor and the decor around your homes.
So that’s why this year I’m so excited because it is a farmhouse, French country, winter land here at my store. You may be wondering what I’m talking about, so let’s get started on the holiday tour.
This first area of my Christmas decor tour for 2022 has a very farmhouse rustic, whitewashed color scheme and style.
We kept the decorations this year mostly monochromatic with the ribbon and decor that we placed on the tree.
However, there are a few pops of glam like these beautiful mirrored glass ornaments and some of the vintage gold accents.
This tree also has a lot of nature on it, which is a big trend for 2022.
Beyond ribbons and ornaments, we also included a combination of eucalyptus and willow stems to fill gaps in the tree.
Designer tip: To hide bald spots, animals are your friends! Animals like deer, owls, teddy bears, birds, and butterflies are perfect for this.
To really achieve the designer look, it has to be more than just a tree.
I want you to think about some of the other surfaces in your home, like your tabletops, dining table, side tables, coffee tables, and countertops. These are perfect opportunities to create a little bit more magic in your decor.
That’s exactly what I did to amp up this Christmas decor tour for 2022.
This beautiful gingerbread house and motif has been a huge hit in my home as well! My sons, my hubby, my mom, my mom in law all want to eat this (even though it’s not edible. Don’t eat it!)
I love that it makes them feel like they’re in the Christmas spirit.
Lastly, I repeated the natural elements on my side tables with mini trees and a pop of gold with a small tray and tiny Santa.
Then I created a centerpiece on my coffee table with gold and white accents to match the tree.
This is one of my favorite collections in the entire Christmas decor tour for 2022 and probably of all time.
We played with pale French blue tones, gray tones, white and a lot of metallic to glam up this section. It’s got a hint of rustic, but a lot of glam without being overly blingy.
A big feature of this area is the China cabinet plate rack. We incorporated metallics, silver, gold, and then contrasted it with the cream wear. Then we displayed in some of our holiday decor here as well as on the dining table.
On the table we included the same color tones with the flocked garland and the blue and metallic ornaments.
These colors bring that Christmas feeling into this section, but also match with the decor and the furniture that’s in the room.
Now let’s go over and look at how we decorated the tree for this collection.
A stand-out feature for this tree is the ribbon. Because we went bolder on the metallics in other areas of this space, we were able to do an exaggerated bow design that cascades all down this tree.
We made more of a color commitment on this tree by bringing in that beautiful French blue, vintage blue, soft blue tones, on the ornaments and decor of this tree.
All of us tend to worry about what’s going to be on the top of the tree, which is very important, but I also want to encourage you to have fun with what’s on the bottom of your tree.
For example, we used this vintage inspired, whitewashed, chalky painted sled and used it as an opportunity to plop on a beautiful Santa that blends in seamlessly with this tree.
This color scheme is our power couple. It wouldn’t be a Christmas decor tour of 2022 if we didn’t include a whole section for blue and gold.
Spoiler alert: gold is never going to go out of style. It just depends if you want to use it and how much.
This year you can see that we are using some of the classic gold tones, but again, mixing the new trends.
The vintage gold tones give it a fresher feel in the color scheme and the silver and gold ribbon allows you to switch out your color palette very easily.
I love the flexibility of this ribbon because if you want to go a little bit more silver one year, you can easily do that if you want to go for the gold, you can easily do that.
This tree was perfect for me to go all in on that luxury and decadence.
One of the ways I did that was by creating these oversized bows a couple of times throughout this tree. I love how it gives a very rich, luscious feeling without a lot of ornaments and decor.
Designer tip: You can change your tree entirely without replacing a thing, except for the ribbon. If you love red or want to see different colors, you could easily remove your base ribbon and switch it for one that works more seamlessly with your decor are the colors you want to see.
Of course, I did not neglect the tabletops and surfaces in this area. In styling these, I took the cues from this tree and brought in some of the gold.
However, I toned down some of the decor so that way my tree really stands out.
On the table, I topped it with a linen cloth that has cruel embroidery with just a little bit of metallic beading to give it that glam.
Then, I used a large centerpiece bowl/ champagne bucket to load in some extra ornaments so that people dining around this table can enjoy the sparkle of the holidays.
Remember: I did just tell you, gold never goes out of style. That’s why we dedicated an entire section to this color palette and all of the styles of decor.
It would be criminal if I did not include a silver and gold theme in this Christmas decor tour 2022 edition.
For the tree in this area, you can see it’s not overly gold.
Because I added in a mixture of vintage gold, silver and gold, and crystal decor, it doesn’t feel like all the same.
Another trick I did to make this tree not-so “over the top” was change the width of the ribbons to these skinny ones. I simply tied them in bows, then elongated the drops to give it a little bit of drama, but not be overly glam.
I especially love some of these unusual ornaments that you may not have seen.
For example, this flat disc mirrored ornament is so interesting, especially when you contrast it with a typical spherical shaped ornament.
Another favorite is this oversize crystal. It looks like I just pulled it off my chandelier, which I did not. It’s an actual ornament.
We also added a sprinkled several beautiful jeweled garland ornaments all throughout the tree.
I love how although these ornaments are glam and a bit oversized, they still blend beautifully with this tree without going over the top.
And of course, we’ve included decor beyond the tree.
You can see this beautiful buffet decor with these sequins, trees, and of naturally, this beautiful Santa that’s completely decked out with gold and crystal.
We also brought the gold color scheme into two beautiful tablescapes.
Both have gorgeous trees, and decor in varying heights, but I love how one emphasizes the greenery and Christmas village feeling a bit more.
I just love how adding greenery beyond the tree just elevates the feeling of Christmas, especially in a dining room setting.
And that completes my Christmas decor tour for 2022!
