My Home’s Christmas Decor 2021 (+ Past Favorites)

It’s that time of year again … time to share my home decked out in Christmas decor. And, man, did it come fast this year! 

At the time of writing this, I’m sipping coffee from one of Starbucks’ annual holiday cups (is it just me, or does coffee taste even better when served in one of these spirited red cups?). Plus, I’ve already watched several Hallmark Christmas movies this season (they are so cheesy and predictable … but also SO good!)

I invite you to grab a peppermint latte (or just your regular coffee order in a festive holiday cup) and get cozy as you scroll through my home’s Christmas decor 2021 tour. 

Oh and just so you know … this year I’m doing my home’s Christmas decor tour a little bit differently than I have in past years. I’m sharing my favorite decor from previous Christmas tours, plus I’ll sprinkle in what I’ve added to my holiday decor in 2021.

Christmas Home Tour 2021

Just like my regular home decor, I don’t change up my Christmas decor drastically each year (like many home bloggers do), BUT I always add a few new and fresh ideas to spice things up. You’ll also notice that I love neutral, simple decor with pops of color and whimsy thrown into the mix.

I’ve broken down my holiday home tour into categories so that you can easily find what you’re looking for :). I’ve also included a ‘Shop the Look’ under each section to make it as easy as possible for you to shop home decor for your own holiday home. Please note that some of my holiday decor is no longer available, so I’ve linked similar items where necessary.

I designed my own custom home from the ground up, inside and out. A home that is cozy, comfy, laid out perfectly for the way my family lives, and makes us happy every single day. Oh, and did I mention I did this all without blowing the budget?! 

Yep, it’s true. I’ve been there, done that, and actually lived through it … and you will too. Pinkie promise!
