Blue, Black and White Christmas Tour (part 2)
Today I have part 2 of my Christmas tour for you with Marty of A Stroll Thru Life. I always love being part of her tours too and you can start all of the tours on her blog HERE.
Yesterday’s tours ended at Brooke’s blog Nesting With Grace, so welcome to all of you visiting from her gorgeous tour.
I’ve had this red wreath for 15 years and decided to bring it out again and you can find my black and white striped porch tutorial HERE.
The tree in the corner of the dining room is the one I used to put in the living room corner but it just wasn’t the right size for the brass pot. Look at the below photo and you’ll see what I’m talking about. Pretty but just a little off-size.
Which is the reason I got a new tree from hayneedle which you can find HERE and see in the next below photo. It’s the perfect size.
And I shared it in yesterday’s tour which you can see HERE.
The other tree is perfect for our dining room now, don’t you think so?

A long time ago I posted about my parents vintage Bjorn Wiinblad by Rosethal plate collection (HERE). So when my aunt passed away who had most of them as well, I asked if someone could bring them for me. Most of them are a Christmas editions. I might be hanging them on the wall somewhere like my parents.
I used to not really like them at all as a teenager but I really love them now. (Find some HERE, HERE and HERE on Etsy)

Check out my DIY black and white checkered curtains tutorial. You can find a similar end table HERE or HERE and I bought my antique silk velvet settee at a local Estate auction.
The buffet that I painted pink (see tutorial HERE) has been serving as the perfect spot for a bar. I just added some party fans and my German angel and soldier. (also find my striped washi tape mirror tutorial HERE)
dresser knobs HERE and tassel HERE

In the kitchen, I cut off some small pieces of evergreen, used some of my jeans strips, and hung them on my kitchen pendant.
You could also add an ornament or two but I love it just like this.
Check out my DIY wood bead pendant light tutorial.
The kitchen island is where I do almost everything. It’s the best spot to wrap presents and watch some Netflix.

You can find the same pyramid HERE.
You can see more of the rest of the house decked out for Christmas HERE.
I hope you enjoyed this part of my home too. I’ll still be sharing the basement family room on Friday, so stay tuned and come for another visit.
Please make sure that you visit Linda next at It All Started With Paint to see her pretty Christmas decor.

I hope you are enjoying all the tours.
the dining room is perfect. personally i love little tree scattered through a home and yours covered with snowflakes is just beautiful. i could’nt help but noticed the wall of plates…with dogs. LOVE! Happy holidays Julia
Thanks so much Laura. I love little trees so much, more so than big ones because you can find room for them anywhere. Thanks so much and Merry Christmas
Your dining room looks great Julia! I loved seeing glimpses of Germany throughout your home and those plates are gorgeous.
Thanks Darnetha. Hope you are good and Merry Christmas
Oh I love how you do small trees decorated so beautifully and those snowflakes are gorgeous. Your dining room is such a beautiful space, love the glass table and the settee, it just looks so inviting. Thanks so much for joining the tour, your home is always full of tons of inspiration.
Oh Julia your post has made me smile! Everything is so lovely. My family and I lived in Germany for three years and while we there we collected German “Smokers” and have a Christmas pyramid just like yours. I adore your creative vignettes. This is your best tour yet!
So lovely and glam! And when I spotted your animal plate wall the first thing that came to mind was Harry Potter (because I’m a Harry Potter geek like that!). But truly your dining room and kitchen look lovely! 🙂
i love the dining room! the colors you have in your home right now are my favorites! love the added touch to your kitchen pendant, and the snowflake tree…. lovely!
Every year, your Christmas home tour is probably the one I look forward to the most! truly, you and your home is just inspiring! Love how you manage to change things up year after year while maintaining all the same beautiful Christmas decor in your home! Love those plates too, and with your plate collection in your kitchen, I can definitely see them hanging sometime in the future! So very honored to share this home tour with you! Cheers!
Beautiful Christmas displays! Isn’t the German Christmas pyramid called a Glockenspiel?
Love. Love. Love the denim and wood grains you used. It gives such a cozy feel to the space with so much texture. Well done!
I love the blue mixed in with your black and white!
That brass pot is perfection for that little tree!!
Looks so pretty Julia! I love that you have Christmas trees throughout your home, makes it even more inviting!
They say, it’s all about the details and you have the right amount! The snowflake trees, the plates, the jean ribbon adorning the gifts and the kitchen pendant… Beautiful!
Your decorating always sucks me in, Julia! I love your dining room – you have just the right amount of Christmas everywhere!
I loved your blue Christmas tour. Your whole home is so pretty! Happy Holidays to you and yours.
Oh my goodness those plates!! Amazing. Love your chindi runner as well. So, so pretty and unique!
