Seasons greetings, sweet friend. Welcome to White Lilac Farmhouse for a tour of my warm & cozy Christmas home for 2022.
My home decorations has lots of greens, silver, gold and some pops of red.
How do you describe a cozy home?
A place you want to curl up and relax. It’s not overly decorated. There are lots of textures, comfy pillows, baskets holding warm throws to snuggle with on a chilly evening. A place where family and friends enjoy to be with you.
Today, I will be sharing with you things that makes my home warm and cozy for the holidays.
First let me tell you about…
Bloggers’ Best Holiday Home Tour
This week is the Bloggers’ Best Holiday Home Tour! I am excited to be joining these 34 fabulous ladies for their Christmas Home Tours. Talk about inspiration!
Everyday starting with Monday and ending on Friday, 35 bloggers will be sharing their beautiful homes that are decorated for the holidays.
A special thank you to our hostess and friend, Kelly with The Tattered Pew for organizing this amazing blog hop.
If you are coming over from Mansa with This Is Simplicite welcome! Mansa has a beautiful for the holidays. Wasn’t it stunning?
For those of you that are new, I am Tammy. Welcome to my home called White Lilac Farmhouse. You will see that my style is a blend of old items with new.
We have a modern built farmhouse with an open concept. The rooms on the main floor flows into each other.
With an open concept home, my holiday colors need to flow throughout my spaces. It will give the rooms a more cohesive look.
In my holiday decorations there are lots of greens, golds, bluish green, silver with pops of red in my spaces.
the dining room
The tree in my dining room has a collection of vintage ornaments collected over the years. Berry picks have been placed throughout the tree. The unusual tree topper seen in this video is a wooden reindeer.
A Christmas present to myself were these beautiful dishes. They are the Tahoe Stoneware Dinnerware Collection. The minute I saw them, it was instant love with the Scandinavian design on these plates. Are they not pretty?
My tablescape was kept simple. A table runner on the center of the table. The greenery are stems with pinecones not a garland.
A couple of mercury glass trees found at HomeGoods adds a focal point. The sunlight bounces off the mercury glass. Silver jingle bells and votive candle holders creates a festive look with some extra sparkle too.
The entryway is right across from the dining room with no walls separating the areas. This vintage dresser holds napkins, placemats, table runners, etc. The spill over that will not fit in the buffet.
The wreath over the dresser lights up at night. It’s set to a timer.
The three trees, I made from twine and paper. The bases are candle holders found at a thrift store for a $1 each. You can see the tutorial for these Twine Wrapped Christmas Trees are here.
You can see that my furniture, walls and draperies in my spaces are all neutral. I love to add color through accessories.
It helps me to bring in different colors throughout the seasons.
My sofa is 103″ long and perfect for my 6′ 1″ husband to take naps on. The long bench cushion is perfect for snuggling with the grandchildren to watch Christmas movies.
To make this space cozy, there are lots of toss pillow with different textures. A Mongolian Faux Fur Hide is on the coffee table with a wooden bowl of glass ornaments.
I kept the pillows more winter verses Christmas. These pillows can stay out through the winter months not just Christmas.
Basket on the fireplace holds extra throws. Perfect for laying on the floor to watch holiday movies if the sofa is full.
Miss Piper and Chibi our French Bulldogs love to hog the sofa. We have a ramp that they use to get on the sofa.
We have six windows in this room. Sunlight floods through the window throughout the day.
Two small 4 ft. trees flank the sides of the fireplace. The garland is on a timer and pops on in the evening. I love the green with the creams, golds and a tiny bit of red in here.
This white vase it usually in the room too along with the oversized vintage dough bowl. I sprinkled Christmas in areas without removing my main items.
A brass deer candle holder place on top of the books for that winter vibe. The brass display case was perfect to hold some miniature ornaments. A few greens and berry stems in the vase for the holiday. Extra teal and aqua ornaments in the dough bowl with seafoam color burlap and a strand of beads.
More faux greens adorn the stair rails. You can create vignettes of items on the kitchen counter. Here a simply vignette in the middle of the island is on a cutting board. I tried to keep things simple and my counters uncluttered. A snowman adorns an existing display on the counter by the stove.
Chibi being her cute self. She turns 4-months old in a few days. She is the perfect Christmas ornament.

Do Dodson says
Your home is everything I pictured it to be and you look lovely in it. Great pic!
You got a new puppy! Yay! I’m so happy for you. Merry Christmas my friend and thanks for sharing your home. Maybe someday I can come see it for real. Texas is still waiting on you. 😘
Merry Christmas 🎄 xo, Do
Do, you know I would love for your to come visit me. My door is always open to you my dear friend. Yes, we got a puppy. After we lost Chloe (12-years old) in September, Piper would not eat. She was grieving missing her friend. We were all heartbroken too. Out of the clear blue, Piper’s breeder sent me a text asking if I knew anyone interested in puppies. He had three available. I replied immediately and took the little girl. It was the best thing for Piper. Chloe never played much with Piper because she was old. However they were companions and laid together, hung out, etc. Now Piper has a playmate and she is great with the puppy.
Your home is decorated so beautifully. I love the expression your your sweet babies face. So cute!
Thank you so much, Renae. Merry Christmas!
Aliya Arnold says
Oh my Word!!! Your Christmas decor is gorgeous!!! And your sweet pup is a perfect ornament!!! ;)) Merry Christmas!!!
Thank you, Aliya. Chibi is something else. She keeps me on my toes. Her and Piper are so loving and spoiled rotten.
Jeanne Cameron Washburn says

Tammy, You have such a beautiful home and it looks even more amazing decorated for Christmas. I love all the cozy touches you’ve added and it was so fun to see your sweet dogs! Hope you have a wonderful holiday season!
Thank you, Donna. It’s hard not having them in photos. The girls are never far from me.

Amber D Ferguson says
Your home looks so pretty and festive for the holidays!
Thank you so much, Amber. Merry Christmas to you too!
Julie Briones says
Tammy, your home looks just lovely! And your photos are so good! Those paper trees you made are gorgeous, too! Did I miss a full size tree? Or did I read too fast and miss what you said about it? LOL! Love touring with you, my friend! Pinned!
Julie, you will laugh about the tree. You did not miss my big tree. My photos of the tree, a set of lights at the top went out. I had not noticed until the photos. It’s why there is a video of it on IG and not on the post. The world of blogging right?
Chibi steals the show!!
Jennifer, you may be right. She is full of personality too. The two of them have me laughing everyday.
You’ve added the perfect amount of Christmas around your home. It’s all so pretty but I think my fave is the gorgeous bowl of ornaments on your coffee table. Seriously beautiful! And those pups are so stinkin’ cute! I imagine they keep things lively around there. Enjoyed hopping with you this week. Merry Christmas!
Merry Christmas, Cindy! Thank you so much. That wooden bowl with the ornament is one of my favorites too. It’s just so simple too!
Wendy McMonigle says
Tammy, your home looks so beautiful and those darn dogs are just the cutest things ever.
I have a french bulldog grandaughter :))) So fun touring with you this weel
Wendy, thank you so much. You will have to send me a picture of you Frenchie Grand dog. They are such a sweet and loving breed. We have always had Boston Terriers here until two years ago when we got our first Frenchie. The girls are spoiled rotten.
Kate @ Southern Home and Hospitality says
Tammy your home looks so beautiful and inviting! I absolutely love those red and white dishes but the best thing is those sweet puppies. Have a Merry Christmas my friend!
Kate, Merry Christmas to you as well friend. Those pups like to photo bomb too especially Piper. She is a big ham. The little one could care less.
Lora Bloomquist says
Your home is so graciously welcoming, Tammy. And your dogs are picture-perfect adorable! I’m drooling over your vintage green scale. I’ve got a whole collection buy haven’t found the perfect green one yet:) Merry Christmas!
Lora, that green scale in that color was a hard find. Like you, I had been searching for one in a pretty green. I found this one and it was perfect. I got luck.
Libbie Burling says
So much to love here, but you had me with those adorable pups! And I love that your hubby stepped up to be a blogging hubby! The things we ask them to do. LOL.
Happy Holidays my friend!
Thank you, Libbie. Those little pups bring me so much joy. Piper was a COVID pup. I got her during the COVID shut down. She was a life saver being away from family.
Your home looks beautiful, Tammy! I love your new dishes. But I especially love Piper and Chibi reveling in their holiday home. xo
Including your tour in tomorrow’s weekend meanderings post. xo
Thank you so much, Juliet. I am thrilled that you included me. Merry Christmas, sweet friend. Hugs xoxo
Thank you, Juliet. Those little gals love to have their photos taken. That little Chibi is something else. She is not as mellow as Piper.
