I pared down my fireplace mantel from previous years with new faux cedar garland.
I found this cedar garland at Canadian Tire but this garland from Pier 1 looks similar. The new look is a nice change!
I love these large bells hanging on the wall just with a Command Hook.
I’ve had these same Eiffel tower globe ornaments for 5 years now and they are still my favorite.
I love having the holiday wrapping paper out and ready to wrap a gift in the evening. Ribbon on wooden spools look just as pretty as decor.
Here are the four ways I’ve decorated the living room for Christmas.
I paired down my decor in the kitchen too and went with natural elements like pine clippings and oranges in this large champagne bucket.
Nothing like fresh baking for a Christmas kitchen!
I love using vintage champagne buckets for floral arrangements and for these fragrant oranges.
I’ve edited the open shelves so that we have just our everyday cups and glasses and a few statement decor items.
shop mini trees
I found the Christmas garland above the windows from a dollar store. I love the simplicity of them.
Shop the kitchen
Here are the four ways I’ve decorated my kitchen for Christmas.
I shared two looks and a video of my dining room earlier this week, Scandinavian style.
I love the cedar clippings and simple elegant touches.
The second look involved a beautiful red linen tablecloth. To see the whole tour, click my Scandinavian table here.

Love the simplicity of your decorations.
Your home is stunning. I especially love how you change your mantle out each year. The bells on the wall are a really nice touch too.
Thanks so much, Mary!
goodness gracious your kitchen looks amazing!!!!!! i also love the french art paired with your christmas mantle!
Everything is gorgeous your tree is especially beautiful. Thanks for sharing.
Thanks so much, Cassie!
Love looking at the different ideas through the years!! I like them all!!
Your whole house is beautiful!! The design books look amazing. Would love to win!
Beautiful Christmas tour!!! I have a forty year home and I’m constantly fixing up little things here and there. I’d love to refinish some antique chairs in that deconstructed look to add some character☺️
That sounds like so much fun, Tracy! I love projects 😉 Thank you! Merry Christmas!
So pretty, Jamie (as always)! Love all the simple touches 🙂
Aww thanks Shauna!
There’s a glimpse of your area rug in your 2019 Christmas living room picture. I love the color tones. Would you mind telling me where you got it or if you know if it’s still available? I’m definitely liking the simple, relaxed Christmas look. Your home looks great.
I got it at Pacific Rug Gallery in North Vancouver, BC. It’s a beautiful sage green vintage rug. http://www.pacificruggallery.com
Your natural style makes me swoon! I need to maximize space, so looking to winning the decorating books for some new approaches.
Aww thanks Arlie! My house is small so I’m always trying to maximize my space too.
Your home is so gorgeous Jamie! Especially with all your fabulous Christmas decor. Thanks so much for being part of the book giveaway – I love all the creative ideas in your book! xo
Thanks Jen! Such a great giveaway you organized. I love your book!
The dilemma I have is adding modern touches to a home with antique, vintage pieces. These book would hopefully give lots of inspirations.
Yes! I love the same thing, Mae. I find that keeping things simple (not a lot of clutter) really helps to combine modern with vintage.
Everything you do appeals to me, but I’m hoping the pendulum will swing back to a less austere look soon. I still love your 2017 Christmas dining room…and can’t believe that was two years ago! What an amazing giveaway! Count me in! Happy holidays and thanks so much!
Thanks Teddee! I love that decor too!
Everything is gorgeous. Your tree is especially beautiful. Thanks for sharing.
Thank you, Candy! Happy holidays.
Painting furniture or kitchen cabinets.
Showing all the years in each room is just brilliant!! What elegance!! Thanks so much for the giveaway.
Thanks Eileen! Hope you had a wonderful holiday!
Everything looks beautiful and gets better every year! Thank you for sharing your home tour and the previous years too. Merry Christmas Jamie.
Aww thanks Krista!
Love the look this year! Everything you do is gorgeous.
Thanks Cathy! That’s so kind of you to say.
I love your minimalist Christmas decor this year, Jamie… you are such an inspiration to me, girl. Your mantle gets an A+… stuuuning!!
Aww thanks so much, Alicia! That’s so sweet of you. Happy holidays!
I’ve always loved a “fully decorated” look, however, this year, all of a sudden, I feel like there is just too much everywhere and I want a cleaner, less is more approach. I’m still gathering ideas on how to do this and love looking at books filled with ideas.
I’ve been feeling that way all year, Margo! It feels freeing! Happy holidays.
Your home is lovely! Thank you.
Thanks Anne! Happy holidays.
I have toned down my Christmas decor over the last few years and I love it. I am always looking forward to reading your blog. You are a great inspiration my fellow Canadian. A very merry Christmas to you and your family!
Thanks so much, Louise! And thanks so much for following my blog. I’m loving my pared down Christmas look this year too. It feels more relaxing without so much decorating! Have a wonderful Christmas this year too!
I have an open concept kitchen, dining & living area so I’m looking for ways to improve the sight line when decorating so it looks cohesive. Merry Christmas!
Thanks Anne! Hope you had a wonderful holiday.
Not sure how to enter the contest but here’s the post comment! I love how your “look” changes but remains true to your love for the French look and feel, Jamie! I too am a lover of that style, the way that a few simple but beautiful items really up the ante. I have paired back too, in my store, C’est Cheese Please! I have a look that I call “In The Garden” with topiaries (Rosemary, lavender and that lovely pop of a Lemon Cyprus), a few bottle brush Christmas trees and white cyclamen and white mini poinsettias. Along with marble cheese boards and this gorgeous green throw, it looks quiet and festive but simple and could take one through the winter season whilst we dream of spring and the garden waking up! A new book to be inspired by through the wintery nights would be a lovely thing to look forward to the New Year too! I also love the prints and will download those, thank you so much! Have a wonderful Christmas, Jamie with your now husband!!
Thanks Wendi, what a sweet comment. Your look ‘In the Garden’ sounds lovely. I hope you have a wonderful Christmas with your family too!
So beautiful! I loved seeing your mantle decor from previous years.
Thanks so much, Shawna.
Such a beautiful tour, Jamie! I loved seeing the comparison shots from throughout the years! Hope you’re having a wonderful week, friend!
Thank you so much, Abby! Merry Christmas!!
Amazing decor! It’s beautiful and elegance at the same time! I love the color tones, the rustic look and the simplicity of the decorations. Therefor, your post will be featured on You’re The Star – Creative features! Thank you for linking up at You’re The Star Blog Hop!
