Blogger Stylin Home Tour: Fresh and Modern Scandinavian

Fourteen days until Christmas…is that right??? Even though I got my Christmas decorations up uncharacteristically early this year, I still can’t believe there’s only two weeks to go. While the shorter holiday shopping season has me behind on my gift list, my house all dressed up and ready to go thanks to the Blogger Stylin’ Home Tours, Christmas Edition. I had so much fun sharing my fall home tour and following along with all the other bloggers so I was thrilled when Lindsay from The White Buffalo Styling Co. asked me to participate in the Christmas Tour. This time there are 53 bloggers involved and let me tell you, there are some magazine-worthy homes being shown. If you’re following along in true home tour style from Summer’s blog, Simple Stylings, welcome!

Ever since freshman year of college I have slowly but steadily amassed a ridiculous amount of hand-me-down Christmas decor. Usually I am all for repurposing but this year the extra jolly ceramic Santa and those macaroni ornament frames are staying put in storage so I could pick up some things that work better with my existing decor.

My decision to go with a red, white and silver color scheme was pretty easy. I did a red and white table last year and loved how punchy the red was against all the neutrals in my home. Once I spotted these pretty crystal glasses at HomeGoods, the deal was sealed. I created a simple tablescape with a Christmas tree forest and an old peppermint bark tin to give the arrangement a little more height.

This was my first and last time ever stinging real cranberries. I love the way they look but the project left me with a few bleeding fingers and a cranberry stained chair. Plus, I totally overestimated how many it takes to get a few strands and now have two full Costco bags of cranberries. Any one have any good recipes that require a gazillion cranberries?

I used these glittery treat boxes last year and filled them with peppermints. I’m thinking of doing peppermint truffles or maybe some homemade peppermint bark this year instead.

For the entry, I grabbed a few things from around the house and swiped a crate from my living room bookcase to make a snowflake diorama. I always like to include snowflakes in my Christmas decor since it’s probably the closest I’ll ever get to a white Christmas.

I was extra picky about our tree this year so I wouldn’t be known as that one blogger with the Charlie Brown tree. I dragged my darling husband to three different lots before we found the right one, but I’m almost positive he agrees it was totally worth it. My favorite addition to our tree this year is the disco ball ornaments and flowers. I love how they scatter tiny bits of light in the afternoon.

    • Thanks Julia! Now if only I could actually travel abroad and see firsthand how they really do Christmas decor. Maybe I need to plan a research trip for next year…

  2. Everything is so beautiful Sarah!! I just love the red in your home. The snowflake diorama is super fun too! xo Kristin

  7. though I’m more a neutral girl, I’ve been enjoying seeing and using red :) your tree is gorgeous ! So so pretty…xo

    • I’m with you Lucy, I’m usually neutral all the way. The red is a nice change and really makes our home feel Christmassy!

  8. Your home is absolutely stunning, Sarah! I love how bright and fresh everything looks… makes all the red just pop even more! Beautiful table setting and I agree with you…hitting the 3 tree lots was totally worth it. Your tree is perfect. Definitely very far from a Charlie Brown Tree! ;) And I made a cranberry clafoutis one time and it was TERRIBLE…so I am going to tap out on giving out any ideas with the cranberries! lol. ;)

    • Oh Jesse you are too sweet! You should know about finding some great trees ;-) I’ve never heard of cranberry clafoutis so I’ll have to take your word for it. haha

  9. Gah! Your home is phenomenal….I love your holiday decor so much that I can’t even pick a favorite thing! Wonderful job, girl! :)

  10. Your home is GORGEOUS, Sarah! I love your tablescape and your lush tree. Yay for not being the Charlie Brown blogger! :)
    Caitlin @ Desert Domicile recently posted…Holiday Home TourMy Profile

  11. I love every little bit of your home! The red truly pops next to all your neutrals and feels so christmasy!!!! Your tree is fanastic and I love adding flowers in mine. I usually do but this year opted out.

    You can freeze the cranberries and they last a longtime. It’s fun to add them to cocktails or just at he bottom of your champagne glass. I’ve made a pear and cranberry chutney that was delicious too!!!!

    Oh and Tenley sent me the cutest picture of you, her and your babe! So fun you got to meet!!!
    Blessings!

  25. So pretty!!!!

    And thank you for admitting that not everything is perfect all the time – like stringing those cranberries! I recently got married and got so disgusted with all the styled posts where they make everything seem so EASY. I think I WILL go but a strand or two of the fake cranberries and string them up on my light too though :)

  26. Sarah, it just gorgeous. Every bit of it. I love how the red pops against all the white and silver.

  27. I always buy too many cranberries. I just freeze them and use them for a few months in various recipes. I have a good recipe for a Cranberry bread. Awesome with a cup of coffee! Man, now I want to go make a loaf.
