Modern Farmhouse Christmas Dining Room

Modern Farmhouse Christmas Dining Room

Needing some holiday dining room decor inspiration? Well you are in luck, because today I am sharing my modern farmhouse Christmas dining room.

It is a freakin’ Christmas miracle, my friends! Despite my household being ravaged by a series of stomach bugs, common colds and pink eye (thanks to my petri dish of a toddler), I somehow managed to stay healthy long enough to decorate my home for the holidays.

And while I did share  the bulk of my holiday home tour last week(you can check it out here), when my girl Jess of Domicile 37 heads a home tour and invites me to collaborate, there is no way in hell I am going to turn her down (despite being sick AF). In fact, I simply welcomed it as a challenge- pondering how I could “deck the halls” without having to break from my quarantined state (AKA not being able to visit Hobby Lobby for an annual,  holiday decor shopping spree).

If you are joining me from Casa Watkins Living, welcome! I absolutely adore Stephanie and her colorful,boho style.

Speaking of colorful, boho style… if you checked out my tour last year, you are probably wondering what happened to all of the color. Cha-cha-cha-cha-changes!

In an effort to establish more calming, zen-like vibes in my home(in a house full of boys, my sanity truly depends on some zen…trust me!), I am experimenting with a more neutral, earthy color palette.

And while you can see I have gone totally farmhouse, I was still sure to maintain clean, modern lines and a sense of eclectic edge.

Given my quarantine state,  which left me feeling like Jack Nicholson’s character on  The Shining, I had to be clever with how I injected touches of Christmas.

Other than this wreath I ordered from Target online, all of my holiday accents were items I already owned (or plucked from my yard).

Case in point: the cedar twigs I used as a centerpiece and the craft paper I used as a table runner.

Then…to incorporate a bit of festive glow, I  sprinkled in some candles and vintage ornaments. I also love the sense of whimsy the miniature bottle brush trees provide.

When challenged on just how to inject holiday spirit into a space,simply add mercury glass, ornaments and booze (this design rule will never fail you).

And just so you know, I have not entirely neglected my inner bohemian. As you can observe, I still love woven baskets, juju hats and global-inspired pottery.

While I will always be captivated by color, I am really enjoying this new design direction. Not to mention,  with all of my childrens’ toys strewn about the house, I still get my color fix(thanks Fischer Price!).

Thank you so much for stopping by my 1980’s rancher/wannabe modern farmhouse.

Next stop on the tour is The Boho Abode and let me just tell you…Corinna knows how to do boho like nobody’s business.

Now get out there and design some good vibes.

Happy Holidays, babes!
