“Modern French Country Christmas” Kitchen Tour

In previous years, I haven’t bothered to go through the trouble of decorating our kitchen for Christmas. But this year, since we remodeled the space HERE, I was eager and excited to bring in some Christmas love, but also wanting to keep it simple. Look no further than the backyard.

Bringing the outdoors inside is such an easy way to add warmth to a space and it says “grab a cup of hot cocoa and stay a while.”

fullsizeoutput_7658Our table needs a bit of Christmas love as well. A white oversized inexpensive tablecloth HERE is perfect for our long table.

I picked up this white wood hand carved trough recently and added some leftover eucalyptus leaves from Thanksgiving, white roses, and pinecones to make a festive centerpiece.

fullsizeoutput_7662I have always wanted a Christmas tree in the kitchen, and this slim one is perfect for the space.

  1. You are absolutely amazing! I adore your centerpiece! So elegant! and the Christmas wreath and garland look stunning against the white range hood and backsplash! Wowsa! Simply spectacular! And the chair wreaths are fabulous… and a hot chocolate bar? Of course, your kids love it! You are not only a wonderful decorator, but you are a “Martha Stewart” as well! You inspire me!
