A Rustic Modern Christmas Home Tour

A Rustic Modern Christmas Home Tour

Sharing is caring!

If you are still looking for holiday decorating inspiration, you have come to the right freakin’ place, my friend. Along with 26 other bloggers, today I am opening my doors to you and sharing my home decorated for the 2022 Christmas Home Tour Blog Hop. Organized every year by my friend Marty of A Stroll Thru Life, it is always an honor to collaborate with such talented women. I hope you enjoy!

Before we begin my Rustic Modern Christmas home tour, I would first like to give you a virtual hug. Welcome to my home!

If you are joining me from Kristin’s dreamy cabin, it is so nice to meet you.

My name is Erica and after years of renovating a neglected 1980’s rancher DIY style, my family and I are spending our first Christmas in a new home.

While I say “new” , I simply mean ‘new’ to my family and I. In fact, the home is actually a midcentury modern lake cottage which we moved in to at the beginning of 2022, after selling our first-ever fixer upper home .

While this home is not a fixer upper per se, my husband and I have gradually been making cosmetic tweaks as budget allows.

One of the first changes we made was painting our den black.

To milk the dramatic effect of the black walls in this room, I decided to have some fun with high-contrasting holiday elements like a white flocked Christmas tree and a light-colored Pampas stem wreath- creating a snowy, winter wonderland effect.

To glam the masculine-leaning space up a bit for the festive season, I incorporated “blingy” metallics like copper, mercury glass and Champagne-hued ornaments.

Because most of this year’s home decor budget was quickly spent furnishing my new home, my goal this Christmas was frugality( AKA only using items I already owned).

In fact, the only purchase I made this year as far as holiday decor is concerned was a faux fur throw and some plum-colored ornaments.

I must say….I surprised my own damn self with my newfound willpower. Trust me…forgoing the retail therapy wasn’t easy!

Moving from the coziness of my den to the light and airy dining room, I decided to spruce up this open-concept space with some festive greenery.

To glam up the rustic garland a bit, I incorporated a strand of golden bell garland to the mix.

Desiring more dimension in this otherwise neutral, minimalist space, I utilized the plum-colored ornaments , which I had purchased for my flocked tree, to add some pops of warm holiday color.

Creating a simple, modern centerpiece, I placed some cedar stems into a black, footed bowl along with a mix of antique glass ornaments and newer Champagne and plum colored baubles.

When you are needing to inject some holiday magic without putting a hurtin’ on your wallet, never underestimate the power of candle light.
