The greenhouse came alive after decorating it for Christmas! Mini Christmas trees and garlands were an important part of the greenhouse decorating process. Vintage decor is a must for the greenhouse!

I decorate for the holiday using more blues, roses, creams, grays, and silvers, rather than the traditional green and red color scheme.

These colors seem to coordinate better with the bold beach color palette I have chosen here. We don’t have a fireplace, so I try to create the same type of feel of a mantle above my glass cabinet, where I house all my quilts.

Our cottage is small, so it overtakes the living room by putting up a large Christmas tree. Because of this, I added mini Christmas trees throughout my home. I usually place the trees on stools, to give the illusion that they are bigger.

I thought I would be creative, and threw Christmas lights all over the window seat. This presented a wonderful photo opportunity! Jax didn’t seem to mind.

Adding decorative pillows and throws to this window seat creates a cozy place to hang out.

Festive holiday touches such as garland, berries, and wreaths were added to our cottage kitchen.

Open shelving is the perfect place to display Christmas decor in a cottage kitchen. I brought in the Santa Claus Lane sign to add a pop of red to the room. Food is always a great source of decor, such as pomegranates, candy canes, and baked goods.

Add a festive touch by placing a wreath on the range hood! Fresh rosemary not only looks pretty in the kitchen but smells amazing! In water, it lasts for weeks.

For a more festive look, I added bay leaf garland around the windows. The centerpiece is an old vintage chicken feeder, filled with rustic ornaments, berries, and greens. The greenery was both faux and fresh from the yard.

Because our bedroom is quite small, I try not to add too much decor at Christmas time. I do always fit in a Christmas tree or two though! My bedroom color schemes were blues, pinks, creams, and some greenery.

Candles and a throw are an essential part of making this cottage-style bedroom Christmas decor worthy! I truly believe there is no such thing as too many pillows in a cottage bedroom! Are you with me?
