This French Vintage Christmas living room and mantel tour has many beautiful French touches that you can recreate in your home.
Today I’m participating in the Magical & Merry Holiday Home Tour hosted by Sarah of Grace in My Space. If you’re coming here from My Vintage Porch, welcome!
I just posted my French Christmas Dining Room on Monday and today is part two of my Christmas tour – my living room and mantel. I wasn’t sure if I would be able to top last year’s Christmas decorating as it was just featured in a 14-page spread in Cottages & Bungalows! The ideas I had to change it up a bit worked and I’m in love with this year’s decorating more so than last year.
Let’s get the tour started and be sure to visit the other bloggers at the end of the post!
I love the way my mantel looks this year! I’ve been obsessed with seeded eucalyptus all year and added some to my faux evergreen garlands.
The trumeau mirror I made for my French Vintage book that is coming out next year so you’ll have to wait until then for the tutorial on how to make your own 😉
I made this Joyeux Noel fabric banner on the mirror last week. You can find the tutorial here.
These beautiful wooden garlands are from Soft Surroundings and I’m in absolute love with them! I knew instantly that I would be draping them around my fireplace when I saw them online. I have two of them draped over my mantel.
The European-looking stockings I made last year from antique French linen. You can find the printable sewing pattern in that post.
I used my French baskets to hold the gifts under the tree.
I still love this tree! I bought it last year at Canadian Tire. You can find my review of it here.
The crown is new and I’ve added it to the top of the tree like an angel or star. I’ve noticed they are sold out online at The Cross but I found a similar one on their website.
I hope you enjoyed this magical & merry tour.
It was so much fun to decorate it for you this year.
Thank you for being such a lovely reader!
