Holiday Home Tour – Christmas Dining Room

Hey friends! Today is a special day at Chatfield Court because I’m hosting a small home tour, All Through the House Holiday Home Tour, with four of my blogging friends. 

A holiday home tour with 4 blogging friends where I'm sharing our pretty Christmas dining room.

Everyone is so busy this time of year so we decided to keep things simple and have a one day tour. For today only, each of us will be sharing a special room in our home all dressed for the holidays in the hopes of inspiring you as you decorate your own home. 

If you’re visiting from Exquisitely Unremarkable, welcome! Love Kim’s pretty cottage family room but it’s especially beautiful during the holidays. 

The space I’m sharing today is our Christmas dining room. Last year was the first time we spent the holidays in our cottage and it didn’t take long to realize our tree would have to be set up in the dining room.

In the other homes we’ve lived in I always had our tree in the living room, so having it in here took some getting used to. We love it though. Our kitchen and dining area is our favorite space in our house so it seems like the tree is exactly where it should be.

We’ve made quite a few changes to this space since the last time we decorated for Christmas. I’ve painted the walls, painted the windows black and replaced our big oak table with an awesome antique teak table (a $50 find).

I also made a change with our holiday decor this year. I usually go with traditional red but decided to go in a different direction.

You may be able to spy one little peak of red in the tree. It’s our Santa ornament, the very first Christmas decoration I bought when we were newly married, so it had to make an appearance. Other than that, no red (not in this room anyway πŸ˜‰ ).

Instead I went for a rustic glam look with gold, silver, black and some rustic wood touches. It was a big change (for me) but I like the way it turned out. I even tucked in an extra piece of live cedar garland to add a little life to my faux tree.
 
I’ve always used traditional colors, red and green, so it took me longer than I’d hoped to put this together. I fiddled with the tree for quite a while until I was satisfied with the way it looked.

The tree skirt I would normally use is red, so I picked up a piece of faux fur from Joann Fabrics and laid it under the tree. It adds to the glam look. Love it!

A bit of live greenery here and there really made a huge difference in turning this space into a festive Christmas dining room.

Next up is Randi, Dukes and Duchesses, and her beautiful kitchen dressed for the holidays. 
 
Make sure you head to the other blogs to see how they decorated their spaces for the holidays. I still have our kitchen, living room, bedroom, sunroom and front porch to share. I’ve been hard at work getting them ready for the holidays and I can’t wait to share.
 
Thanks so much for touring with us!

    Your dining room looks so glamourous. I think that the gold and fur touches are my favorite. We added a small tree to our kitchen this year and I love it. We spend so much time there it stands to reasons we should have a little pretty to peek at every day, so you must love your tree placement. A lovely, festive view all day lone! Happy Holidays!

      Thanks so much my friend! It’s a definite departure from my usual Christmas decor, but I’m loving the change. Still getting used to no tree in the living room but I may have found a solution. I’m sure you’ll enjoy your tree in the kitchen. It’s nice to be able to see the twinkling lights of the tree while you’re cooking. πŸ™‚

      Happy Holidays to you!

    Your gold and white tree really took my breath away. It is stunning! Thank you for sharing your home’s Christmas look with all of us this year. And I am loving on your little rocking horse too!

      Thanks so much for your sweet comment Diane, I appreciate it! I love the change in decor. It’s definitely different for me but we’re enjoying it.

      Thanks for visiting. Happy Holidays!

    This space is so beautiful … I love the look of the green against the neutrals! And your black windows are amazing.

      Thanks so much Randi! It’s definitely different for us, not using red, but I love the change (for this year anyway πŸ˜‰ ).

    Your dining room looks amazing. It’s small, but so well decorated, the size doesn’t matter. It’s definitely glam everywhere and I’m looking forward to seeing the rest of your beautiful little cottage’s Christmas decor. You never disappoint.

      Awww, thanks so much Pat. I’m so glad you like it. The room is definitely small, and challenging to decorate, but I love the way it turned out.

      I appreciate the visit. xx

    Looks so elegant Kristi. My favorite is the rocking horse and the tree skirt. I am not a fan of fake fur but it is perfect under the tree. Gives the look of soft snow. I can imagine a romantic dinner by candle light would be just perfect. Love this room.

      Thanks so much, Debbie! I was never a fan of fake fur but I like it under the tree (and I love that it was inexpensive). I miss having the tree in the living room but it’s so nice to cook and eat in this space with nothing but the tree lights on. OK we can’t cook with only the tree lights on but…you get the idea. πŸ˜‰

      Happy Holidays my friend!

    Simply gorgeous! I love the soft neutrals and you did a great job of pulling it all together, Kristi! I love that you added touches such as the striped bowl on the floor next to the beautifully wrapped gifts and fur tree skirt. Your clever details really pulled the whole room together nicely and makes it so interesting to look at. The photos pulled me right into the room. This room is magazine worthy for sure. Thanks for sharing!

      So sweet Jill, thanks so much! I look around on IG and other blogs with their big beautiful homes with 10 foot trees and it’s hard not to compare yourself. The space is what it is though so I can only make the best of it. We are happy with it. I’m glad that you enjoyed my little tour.

      Thanks so much and Happy Holidays! xx

    Oh! You put my fur stool in there…so cute. It all looks really pretty, festive but peaceful too. love the colors. I have always used a lot of red and since I collected it for many years it was easy. This year in the living room I gave in to a flocked tree and used all silver, white, and clear ornaments plus pinecones for a little contrast. Same on the mantel, with a little gold added. Also peaceful.

      I hope it’s ok that I used your stool, until you can come and get it of course. πŸ˜‰

      I’ve always used red so it was a big departure for me. I don’t know if I’ll do it every year, but it was a nice change. Your tree sounds lovely. I’ve been wanting a flocked tree the hubs doesn’t catch on to my hints. One of these years.

      Enjoy your tree. Happy Holidays! xx

    I really love red in Christmas decor but have also gone without some years…and loved it too! Your decor is so pretty, fresh and elegant looking. Love everything. πŸ™‚ xo

    This is such a pretty room!! I love it! I also love red at christmas time. But, I may try this color theme next year. Green is my favorite color and this is so calming. I am looking forward to the rest of your home tour!

    • Kristi
      Thursday,November 30, 2017 / 3:27 am

      Thanks so much Julie! I love red too but it was nice to try something different. I went a little different in each room. I’m excited to share.

      Appreciate your visit. Happy Holidays! xx

    With all the goodies….. the one that I need is: the dining room chair covers! They are perfectly done! Where did you get those!? Happy Holidays! Sincerely, Cynthia

    • Kristi
      Thursday,November 30, 2017 / 3:31 am

      Hi Cynthia! I got the chairs and the slipcovers at Pottery Barn more than 10 years ago. Unfortunately they don’t carry the slipcovers anymore, which is a bummer. I know that there are a lot of folks not happy about it (it was a very popular line). Sometimes you can find people selling them on Ebay. Sorry I couldn’t be more help.

      Thanks for visiting. Happy Holidays!
