We love our modern farmhouse, but we wanted to bring it some old world charm this Christmas with some simple antique decor. I am becoming more and more involved in sewing our own projects, making things myself as opposed to buying them, and just keeping things simple and traditional. So join me for an old world farmhouse Christmas home tour![Read more…] about Join me for an Old World Farmhouse Christmas Home Tour
I wanted to create a cozy handmade Christmas mantle this year, so join me as I show you how to make a Christmas mantle garland with fresh greenery and real dried oranges.

This year we went with a Scandinavian Christmas theme full of fresh greeneries, cloved oranges, rustic wood, and an antique farmhouse feel. Being from Sweden, Germany, and Italy, John and I have a lot of European culture in our families and home. So to bring some of that in this year for Christmas was the perfect combo. Come see what we did in our Scandinavian Farmhouse Christmas Home tour.
In years past we have always kept our Christmas decorating pretty simple. We cut down our own Christmas tree, buy fresh garland and use greeneries from our yard, and wrap presents with brown and white craft paper. I use firewood for decor and pull out all of our woven baskets for blanket storage. This year, I wanted to do the normal traditions, but I also wanted to bump it up and add some true Scandinavian touches.
In this tutorial I will show the farmhouse entryway, the family & living room, the dining room tablescape, our office, and the front porch. Make sure to check out the video tutorial for the full tour![Read more…] about Scandinavian Farmhouse Christmas Home Tour
