2023 Christmas Home Tour - Farmhouse Red White and Gold

Hi Friends,
It's been way too long between posts but with work and kids life is super busy, but I couldn't let Christmas go by without sharing our annual home tour. 

This year I threw in some colour. I know, totally unlike me, but I'm actually loving it a lot. 

So, let's get to it!


This is the view looking from the living room to the entryway through our french doors. I have hung large wreaths on the doors, and embellished them with red and white stripe ribbon. 

I purchased the large flocked wreath from Spotlight on sale for our front door and added a burlap bow and some red tartan ribbon.  And for the bag hanger I added some plush stockings with crochet ornament tags. I also found the greenery sprays at Spotlight on sale and love them hanging on the hooks.  


Behind the front door I added a cute flocked tree to my sieve, a cute little metal sign and my DIY wooden wall tree.  

For my entryway table I added some large potted trees, a light up star and some pine cones.  

On the mirror shelf I added this cute little wooden village I purchased last year from Kmart with a predominant red theme. 

And the basket is the perfect place to store my wrapping paper!

In this corner of the living room I kept it pretty neutral with a little potted tree for the coffee table. 

I added lots of cute Christmas decor to my shelves, including potted mini trees, DIY crocheted trees and candles. 

And for the couch I added some white and gold Christmas Cushions. 


On the cabinet next to the TV I added some golden bells and some greenery.

And on top I added a simple wooden riser with a little light up village, a mini tree, some orange scented star candles, and one of my favourite scented Glasshouse Candles wrapped in old sheet music.

This year I decided to do two trees. For the main one I used our lovely slim flocked tree I purchased from Target, and I also had a smaller one I got late last year from Bed Bath and Table.

For the main one I used a colour combination of red and gold. I purchased strays of red berried and threaded them through the branches. I also splashed out on some new gold baubles from Bed Bath and Table. The red baubles I purchased from Myer. 
The clear baubles I purchased last year from Spotlight. I also purchased some thick white satin ribbon from Ronis to wrap through my branches.  I also had some deeper green branch sprays from last year I added throughout the tree. 

I also added my DIY faux rusted cookie cutter ornaments and my pine cone flowers.

And my DIY air dry clay cookie cut ornaments. 

And for the the base of my tree I used our large blanket basket.

I kept our glass cabinet very simple.  

I just added a few tree and house ornaments on the inside. And on the outside I hung some green metal bells, a bell wreath and a larger natural wreath.

I can never get a night photo that shows just how pretty the tree is all lit up. Let me know if you have any tips!


I went with a simple mantle as well this year. 

I attached some red and white strip ribbon to our plush brown stockings. And added a simple flocked green garland.

On one side of the mantle I added some DIY wool wrapped cone trees.

And on the other I added some wooden trees from Myer and my favourite cloche.

Again, I didn't go OTT in the dining room. Just my large winter deer canvas, a cute little tree in a basket in the corner and some mini ornaments in my printer tray.


This is the first year decorating my vintage kitchen cabinet! 

I added a gold bell garland to the top. I kept my vintage scales and decorated around them, adding subtle pops of red throughout. 

Next to the cabinet I hung my DIY mini house and bottle brush tree wreath.


And on the other side I have my secondary tree. As with my main tree, I used some elements of red.

I added sprays of red berries and red baubles, old music page angles, wooden nutcrakers, chain crocheted wooden white baubles, white ribbon and mini wooden trees. 

I also added clear ornaments which reflect the lights so nicely at night. 
And my DIY vintage faux tin ornaments.
This tree looks stunning at night too, all lit up. Both my trees have static lights which I like a lot better as they give off a soft glow and are less distracting than flashing lights.

And that is the end of my Christmas Home Tour for 2023. I'm still doing a bit of decorating in the kitchen and will share that shortly.
Have you done your Christmas shopping yet? Me neither. Lol.
Happy Christmas!
