Our Rustic Christmas Kitchen 2015

Two weeks today is Christmas Day! I hope you are getting everything you need done and are taking some time to enjoy this special time of year. Earlier in the week I shared our Rustic Farmhouse Christmas Home Tour and today I wanted to share just the kitchen with more photos and details. It is a busy time of year and there is so much to see and do so I will try not to bore you with too much information. If you have any questions feel free to ask in the comments. 

I use a neutral pallette year round with lots of white, black, metal and wood tones. For Christmas I used pops of red and plaids. The eat in area of our kitchen is at the back of our home under the cathedral ceiling with skylights.

The little tree I decided to decorate and add at the last minute that has received so many kind comments on both the home tour and Instagram. Neutral ribbon for garland and a bow, vintage jelly moulds, vintage biscuit cutters, ironstone creamers and old Christmas light bulbs decorate the tree.

I need to refinish the table top and finish the console shelves for behind the table but for now I added this vintage dresser I painted. I sewed the plaid table runner with fabric that matches the pillows in the adjacent family room. The tray is easy to move for our family meals.

A simple Christmas wish on the chalkboard I made. The galvanized JOY ties in with the galvanized bucket and the moulds on the tree.

Our little hot chocolate bar with marshmallows and candy canes. 

I added red bulbs to the vintage mason jar. The vintage Santa mugs were a thrift store find. 

I hope to one day find more red and white transferware but for now this little creamer is a favourite find.

Delicious gingerbread cookies from a local bakery.

The scrabble letters spell out RUSTIC FARMHOUSE CHRISTMAS.

I strung red bells and added a strand of red wood beads to the chalkboard. The galvanized star hangs on a vintage ironstone platter.

A breakfast bar separates the work area and table area of our kitchen. 

I like to keep the vintage aqua mason jars and ironstone pudding bowls on the open shelves but added the NOEL letters, a strand of red wood beads, and some greenery

At the last minute I added another large sugar cone.

Greenery and pinecones was added to the crock holding my collection of rolling pins.

The jar on the breakfast bar is filled with cookie cutters and rests on an ironstone platter. This is where you see the Simply White on the kitchen walls merge with the Revere Pewter on the end wall.

The not fancy but totally functional work area of our kitchen. Greenery in a vase, white lights in a mason jar, a pretty kitchen towel stitched by a sister, a small wreath, chalkboard and frosty fern add Christmas touches without cluttering the counter tops.

My sister gave me the frosty fern with the little cardinal and I plopped it in this little galvanized pot. I sewed the little stocking on the mirro and love the reflection of the wreath in the mirror. 

A cow angel ornament on the bread box, the second wreath on the board and batten wall and a peek at our family tree in the family room.

I sewed a pair of these little denim bags, filled them and hung them on the end walls of the board and batten that wraps the kitchen and tv/fireplace walls. 

And finally back to the table area of our kitchen looking past the tree in our family room. Thanks so much for visiting and I would love if you left a comment to let me know you were here!
