Home tours might just be some of my favourite blog posts I ever read. I love seeing how people decorate their homes. And since I’ve started blogging, home tours have become some of my favourite posts to photograph and write too! Since we moved into our new Barn Home, this is the first peek at our dining room, and it’s all decked out for the holidays.
I’m sharing my dining room as part of the Christmas Tour of Homes. I’ve partnered with 25 great bloggers who are sharing home tours every day! So be sure to stop back each day to check out more of the homes (all the links are at the bottom of the post).
We don’t have all of the furniture for our new dining room right now, so for now it feels a bit sparse sometimes. But, truthfully, I’m loving the openness of the space!
The beautiful rug was a gift and it is perfect for the space! It’s the foundation of all of the holiday decor too.
The only other furniture in the space right now is a small sideboard, which I decorated with a little bit of greenery and my new DIY candles.
Behind the sideboard is our bay window. I added a few simple decorations to it, including our new DIY advent calendar.
Then comes the simple tablescape. I took a lot of the same colours from my living room decor (coming soon to a blog near you!).
The centerpiece is made of some greenery stems that I tied together. I added a few matte black candlesticks and some small ornaments to amplify the Christmas cheer.
For the place settings, I used my favourite blue plates and blue bowls. I’m always a fan of simple, yet elegant. You know I had to DIY a few things here right? Well the Wooden chargers were made last year and the DIY napkins will be shared tomorrow (stay tuned!).
By the way, I’m sharing my Holiday Living Room this week too! Come back on Wednesday for some Christmas inspiration.
Don’t forget to check out the other home tours being shared all week long!
