CHRISTMAS HOME TOUR : KITCHEN WITH BLUE & WHITE AND HOLIDAY GREENERY

Welcome to Home for the Holidays blog hop! I’m always so excited to team up with a fabulous group of bloggers, and today I couldn’t be more happy to join the very talented group in this tour. If you’re coming from Kim and Lacey of Styled with Lace, welcome to CitrineLiving, I hope you enjoy your visit! Kim has such amazing style, doesn’t she? I’m sure you must have loved her gorgeous bedroom! You’ll find the full list of bloggers and links to their websites at the bottom of my post today, and if you’d like, you can sign up for my newsletter down there as well. Today I’m sharing our Christmas kitchen, decked out for the season with blue and white (my personal favorite) and holiday greenery. I’m an avid collector of blue and white and this Christmas, I’ve decided it would set the stage for my theme throughout our home. You can link to the other rooms I’ve shared so far this season, also at the bottom of my post. Please come into our kitchen and make yourself at home.*Affiliate links are provided in this post for your shopping convenience – while I make a small commission on these items, it’s no extra cost to you! A beautiful Christmas kitchen with blue and white chinoiserie, paired with holiday greenery for a sophisticated, festive and elegant look.A beautiful Christmas kitchen with blue and white chinoiserie, paired with holiday greenery for a sophisticated, festive and elegant look.We have an open concept home, and our kitchen is right off of our main living room, where we spend most of our time together.

Here is the view looking into our kitchen from nearly the same spot. Last year, our kitchen was all about metallics and holiday greenery (see it here), and this year, I love having the combination of the blue and white paired together with the greenery, against our ivory and black kitchen.A beautiful Christmas kitchen with blue and white chinoiserie, paired with holiday greenery for a sophisticated, festive and elegant look.I wanted a look that was preppy and chic, with simple sophistication. I added different types of navy blue ribbon to help create the look.A beautiful Christmas kitchen with blue and white chinoiserie, paired with holiday greenery for a sophisticated, festive and elegant look.A beautiful Christmas kitchen with blue and white chinoiserie, paired with holiday greenery for a sophisticated, festive and elegant look.On our island, I gathered my collection of covered cake stands, some apothecary jars and a few candles, and displayed them in varying heights.

I’ve used several types of faux greenery in our kitchen as well, some of which I’ve also used throughout the rest of our home. I’m loving the combination of the holiday greenery paired with my blue and white vases.

They do dry out, but usually keep their color, which is a good thing…A little messy to clean up but at least they look good ;)

We used a 3M command hook to hang it – I love them, they’re the best type of adhesive hook! They stick to any surface and they come off easily without damaging anything. In my experience the 3M brand is by far the best. I’ve tried other options and they just don’t work the same.A beautiful Christmas kitchen with blue and white chinoiserie, paired with holiday greenery for a sophisticated, festive and elegant look.Our kitchen is classic in style and somewhat understated, I like to keep the accessories on the classic side as well.A beautiful Christmas kitchen with blue and white chinoiserie, paired with holiday greenery for a sophisticated, festive and elegant look.I usually keep my blue and white jars and vases in here year round, and I’m happy I kept them here this Christmas too. The blue and green combo is my mantra this Christmas!A beautiful Christmas kitchen with blue and white chinoiserie, paired with holiday greenery for a sophisticated, festive and elegant look.We used simple flocked pine swags in the windows, and they’re the perfect understated touch here as well. It was really tough to shoot these with all of the light coming through the windows though!A beautiful Christmas kitchen with blue and white chinoiserie, paired with holiday greenery for a sophisticated, festive and elegant look.I’ve mixed many different types of greenery all throughout our home this Christmas, and I’ve talked about this in previous posts as well. Flocked, faux, fresh, glitter, you name it, I’m using it! I say it all the time and I’ll say it again – don’t be afraid to mix different things together. Not everything needs to match perfectly. In fact, adding a little bit of variation is often much more interesting than having everything look like it came together as a set. A beautiful Christmas kitchen with blue and white chinoiserie, paired with holiday greenery for a sophisticated, festive and elegant look.Here’s an example – we hung mini frosted wreaths on the back of each stool (we used 3M hooks for these also), and they don’t match the large wreath on the range hood. That’s totally ok! They’re mostly frosted, while the large one has a little bit of shimmer. Both of them have a variety of mixed foliage.A beautiful Christmas kitchen with blue and white chinoiserie, paired with holiday greenery for a sophisticated, festive and elegant look.

    And I’m such a fan of cake stands, I just love the little collection on the island! You did an amazing job of bringing style and Christmas warmth to the space.

    Tam you do blue and white like no one and I love how you’ve used it with your Christmas decor. The blue and white with the greens is so stunning and the touch with the blue ribbon is truly elegant! I also love how you’ve used apothecary jars and covered cake stand as a centerpiece, so pretty! So happy to have teamed up with you for this fun hop.

    Happy Holidays!
