Check out this gorgeous Christmas house tour set in the country. You’ll love the charming decor and character of this home!
After showing a snippet of my friend Sandi’s country home back in October, I received emails from several of you asking for more. I’ve been wanting to share this house with you for a while now, and was excited when Sandi extended the offer to be part of my Christmas House Tour series.
Although this house was built less than two years ago, it has much of the same character and charm you’d find in a century old home. Although Sandi had a good idea of what she wanted, I assisted her throughout the building process in making final selections and decisions (including light fixtures, paint colours, wallpaper, window treatments, and more). I think you’ll see why I loved being part of this project, aside from having a good excuse to spend more time with a great friend.
Country Home Decorated for Christmas
Sandi has one of the most beautiful front entrances with stone facade and wood door. I love how the stone is over-grouted to give it an English cottage feel.
Fresh greens make the space look festive.
Upon entering the front door, Sandi created a welcoming display of beautiful mercury glass ornaments and natural materials. At night they’re even more gorgeous.
Although Sandi’s entire house is beautiful, my favourite space is the kitchen with dining room.
The mix of copper and oil rubbed bronze in the light fixtures and hardware warms up the space, while the vaulted ceiling and expanse of windows keep it light and airy. So dreamy!
One of Sandi’s favourite colours is pink, and I love how she mixed it with green and white in the floral arrangements throughout the main floor. Such a nice change-up for Christmas.
I love the painted white cabinets, subway tile backsplash and Corian countertops.
How gorgeous is the tree?! At first I had to touch it to see that it was real. All it needed was a few simple ornaments to look perfect.
Sandi has collected some of the prettiest Christmas ornaments I’ve seen. I love the look of grouping them by colour in bowls and trays. Such high impact!
Another favourite feature is the stone fireplace with reclaimed wood mantel.
Can’t you envision spending Christmas morning by the crackling fire, sipping a cup of your favourite hot drink, while everyone opens gifts. Swoon!
To complement the vaulted ceilings and beams, Sandi splurged on this Parisian chandelier. I think it’s the piece de resistance of the room and was totally worth every penny!
The French influence was carried to the powder room with this blue and grey toille wallpaper applied above the panel detailing. So pretty!
I want to thank Sandi for being so gracious and opening up her home to us. I’m sure you’ve been inspired to add a little more character to your own space, as I have.
I also want to take this time to wish you and your family a joyous Christmas. I will be taking a break from blogging to spend some quality time with family and friends reconnecting, relaxing, and perhaps a little skiing.
