If you are coming over from my friend Cecilia of My Thrift Store Addiction, welcome! Wasn’t her vintage Christmas decor so beautiful?

Our Red and Green Christmas Home Tour

Now I want to welcome you into our home!

I’m Kelly the voice and face behind The Tattered Pew. I have been blogging for almost 6 years now and just left teaching after 20 years to pursue this full time! I love in Colorado with my family and you can often find me hitting up the local flea markets and hanging out with my mom! (for those of you that are new, she has a monthly series here on the blog called Tuesdays With Tracy!) She helped me get our home decorated this year and I couldn’t have done it without her!

You can see last year’s Christmas tour here that she also helped me with!

Kelly of The Tattered Pew in her Kitchen

I LOVE all things Christmas! I love that it is all about Jesus and I love that I get to share my birthday month with him! Mine is 3 days before Christmas.

Ok here we go! Grab something warm to drink and get ready to enjoy a ton of Christmas decor. I took WAY too many pictures but I wanted to show you everything!!!

Our Entry

This is the first space you see as you enter our home. Our banister and trim is painted Slate Tile by Sherwin Williams. It’s such a pretty blue gray!

My very first little pew greets you along with this tiny vintage Santa blow mold. How cute is he lit up?

Our Christmas entry

This old brass bucket holds some fresh poinsettias in bright red! I have never had these before so I hope I can keep them alive. If you have any tips feel free to leave them in the comments below!

Do you see the pine cone stars in the garland on our banister? I made those from pine cones in our yard! They were so easy to nestle in the garland and I popped in some bright red ribbon bows too!


Do you have any awkward spaces in your home?

This little space across from our banister is an odd one for sure. The previous owners had a piano here but we don’t have one or play.

So instead I moved our chair over here and added a round table (that folds). It fits perfectly and of course needed its own Christmas tree! This 4.5 tabletop tree is new to us this year and I can’t get enough of it!

red, green and plaid Christmas decor

I plopped it in this large blue and white porcelain planted a friend gave me and got so excited that it fit!

Love at first sight!

Just when I didn’t think it could get any better I added these clip on battery operated candles!

Love at first sight…again!

blue bowl and metal santa

Now I love this little corner. Of course I also had to bring back the thrill of hope the weary world rejoices sign from Between You and Me Signs!

Our Dining Room and Kitchen

A few weeks ago I shared a post dedicated to our dining room and kitchen and you can see that here.

But of course I wanted to give you a taste today as well!

Our dining room really shows off the red and green Christmas themes I was going for. If you love this space and want to see it live, I will be sharing all about it over on my Amazon Live on Thursday.

This will be my second live for Amazon and I am SO excited to get on again! I would love to have you join me. I would love to also have you follow me there as well! It is so simple just jump here, hit the follow button and the bell to get reminded!

Christmas in our dining room

This is a peek into our kitchen from the family room. Yep, it’s all blue! I adore having a blue kitchen. It’s the color Blustery Sky by Sherwin Williams. You can see it decorated for Christmas here in this post.

Our Family Room

Let’s continue on, shall we?

This space is technically in our entry, kind of , but it also connects to the family room. Another slightly awkward space that I had fun decorating. I leaned this large blue shutter on top of my pine dresser and clipped on some deer prints I found at a local shopped called Magpies.


Then I added the garland and below it my nativity set. Of course more greenery in the vase and more of the pretty red velvet ribbon you might remember from the banister and will soon see on the tree!

Deer prints on shutter

Don’t these look old and vintage? They totally aren’t and they were only 6 dollars each!

This is the view if you were to turn around from looking at the blue shutter. A full view of our family room! This is our main living space and I love it!

Most of our furniture is from Facebook Marketplace or consignment shops or flea markets. I love mixing pieces together to bring a unique feel to the space.

FOr Christmas I added a ton of plaid accents along with red and green.

I’m almost embarrassed to admit how many plaid blankets I have. It may or may not be in the double digits. Maybe I should start considering them something I collect! ha!

Our sofa is from Curate Consignments and is originally from Pottery Barn. Itcaught my eye since it was blue. Doesn’t it look pretty with pops of red for Christmas?

Confession time.. those wood blinds above the sofa drive me crazy. They darken the space and I want to change them. I just haven’t found the right replacement yet. That is on my list for 2023. But pulling them up does the trick for letting more light in.

And don’t worry, I’ll share more about my green dresser below!

Our Christmas Tree

Our tree is flocked and I have to say that I love it! When I decided to go all read mainly on the tree I wasn’t sure how it would turn out, but goodness gracious it turned out so fun!

I love this year’s tree so much! Even though our tree from last year was featured in Country Sampler’s Farmhouse Style Christmas edition this year, I think I might like this one better! Shhh, don’t tell!

our red and green Christmas tour tree

Doesn’t the tree look so pretty against my favorite boxwood green dresser? I swear this dresser was made for Christmas!

Our red and green Christmas home tour

On top of the dresser painted in Boxwood by Miss Mustard Seed milk paint, I kept things simple. A jar full of vintage ornaments, a plaid scarf turned runner, a vintage red book and a votive. The mirror reflects the tree so beautifully too, right?

Can you read the title on this book? From Manger to Throne is a book I saw at my friend Brook’s booth (before she had her shop) that I fell in love with. It’s perfect for Christmas!!!!

A few more fun views of our tree.. I sued a vintage horn for the topper to echo our dining room centerpiece and layered on gold wood beads and more red velvet ribbon. Then added red ornaments and mercury glass ornaments in an assortments of sizes. The final touch were the red berry picks. So simple yet so stunning!

Our Mantel

Christmas mantel

Now how about we peek at the mantel? Sweet and simple.

My sweet mom let me borrow her round mirror with the darling bow on top and I love it against the white brick!

She also helped me layer on the garland (held on by command hooks) and stockings. The white ones are from the Studio McGee line at Target this year and the plaid ones are from last year. I got them at Shop with Lavender and Grace.

Pretty much obsessed with the battery operated light on the left side of the mantel. Did you even know they were fake?

Remember my love for pedestal bowls? Well I found this one in my basement that I had forgotten all about. Isn’t she cute with red ornaments in her? The blue ginger jars were found at the flea market and Home Goods awhile ago.

And the metal Merry Christmas banner? Well I got it at a local shop here in fort Collins called Cozy Cottage. But I did also see it online at Studio McGee, but unfortunately it was sold out.

Shop Our Tree & Mantel

Our Office

Finally, lets make a quick stop in and see Mike’s office! This beautiful blue room is painted in the color Sea Serpent by Sherwin Williams.

I kept it simple in here this year with this tree we have had from Walmart for years now and 4 gorgeous wreaths from Laura of Round Wreath.

I picked out the Forever Green wreath and had her add blue velvet ribbon. Aren’t they so charming around the lights? I love the mix of greens and the blue berries!

If you love a beautiful wreath too you must check out Laura’s selection over at roundwreath.com! You can also use code THETATTEREDPEW15 for a 15% off discount!

The plan is to add our family ornaments to this tree real soon!

Thank you for organizing the tour and being so kind while you try to herd all of us bloggers. God bless you and magnify Himself in your life this blessed season!

        Thanks for hosting again. Beautiful home as always

  4. So very beautiful, Kelly! I am a traditionalist with red and green too. Your count of plaid was close to what I had prior to downsizing, but now that we’re upsized a bit and in our cottage, I have the chance to begin again, right?? (ps, I’m still crushing on the grass green throw you had on the bench in the prior home!). Like you, I’ve furnished with not Marketplace, but a lot of estate sale finds. Love all your touches throughout your home, but the nativity vignette with the shutter leaning against the wall is one of my favorites. The blue & white chinoiserie is gorgeous. Happy holidays!

  5. I LOVE all the pops of traditional red and green, Kelly! You did an amazing job styling your home for Christmas…everything looks just beautiful!

  6. Oh my goodness, Kelly. Each photo is more gorgeous than the next. I LOVE your beautiful home all decked out for Christmas. Thank you so much for hosting such a fun tour. I hope you and your family have a wonderful holiday season!

  7. Your house looks so beautiful! So warm and inviting. I love the blue from your kitchen and your husbands office. I’m going to paint my family room one of those colors. Thank you for sharing. Thank you also for including me in this tour. Hugs and blessings to you.

  8. KELLY!!!
    We are all coming to your house it’s decided!! I love seeing your beautiful home and the way you decorate makes it feel like a home away from home for me. It’s cozy and welcoming everywhere I go. I love the Norfolk pine greens you used and the vintage book From Manger to Throne, the way you hung wreaths over your lights with the bows off to the side (doing that next year, THANK YOU!), and your gorgeous 4.5-foot table tree in the entryway corner. Did I mention your Santa all lite up reminds me of Christmas when I was growing up?? Mom always put her little Santa collection in the entryway too. Love you and thank you for including me on this hop!!

  9. What a beautiful home tour Kelly! You do red and green so well, and your fun plaid patterns around your home just makes my heart sing! The table top tree in the blue and white chinoiserie is exceptionally pretty, and a look I would love to recreate!

  10. Your home looks so cozy, and the red and green Christmas palette looks lovely, Kelly! And, I don’t think you might need to consider your plaid blankets a collection… they just are! 😉 And your tree is SO pretty! Pinned, and thanks for hosting this tour! And being so patient with those of us that lose track of time! 😉

  11. Saddened that I couldn’t link to at least half of these pages. Not sure why they were taken down but very disappointed. It is a busy time of year and was hoping to enjoy your link party very early this morning when no one else was awake but “no luck”

  12. Kelly how beautiful! I love all the plaid and pretty spaces. The office is so cool! I love how you decorated it – we have a library that looks similar but I’ve done nothing with it yet. Thanks for organizing another amazing group!!! Merry Christmas!

  13. Kelly,
    I am all heart eyes over here; your home looks absolutely magical for the holidays! I wish I could just come to sit in that beautiful kitchen with you and sip on some hot coffee. LOVE IT, my friend!!
    Thank you for hosting such an amazing blog hop.

  14. I love your husband’s office Kelly! And that he is happy with a tree in that room! Now I need to convince my husband of doing that… Thank you for coordinating this awesome group once again my friend! So much fun inspiration for sure!

    1. Thanks Pasha! Honestly I didn’t ask I just did it. And Guess what, I came home the other day and he was in there working and had the lights on!!! So I know he loves it!

  15. Kelly I love the traditional architecture of your home and how you’ve updated that look with your own unique style. I’m a plaid fan too, and you’ve done a great job of mixing it all up. Loving seeing the tour, have a wonderful Christmas season!!

  16. I love your holiday home Kelly! The flocked tree with oversized red ornaments is beautiful! Thank you very much for hosting this tour!

  17. Just absolutely gorgeous! Our love of plaid knows no boundaries! Your home looks so perfect and festive for the holidays. It’s cozy, warm and welcoming!

    I love the Norfolk pine garland on the mantel and of course the green dresser! I have a few old shabby white pieces around here that I am thinking of painting that color!

    I love what you did with the little awkard space for Christmas, it’s so pretty and perfect! Of course as a music teacher, decorator and love of all things vintage, I think a beautiful vintage piano would be perfect for there too! Even if no one in your family plays yet, old pianos are so beautiful and fun to decorate! And maybe if it is there some one might try to play around on it. Most kids these days don’t even need lessons with all the youtube tutorials.

    Such a beautiful tour with each space styled to perfection! Thanks so much for organizing this!

    Merry Christmas!

  18. What an absolutely beautiful Christmas tour Kelly! The old brass bucket holding the poinsettias is beyond wonderful. And the blue and white porcelain pot with the tabletop Christmas tree is so pretty. I really want to get some clip-on candles for my trees. Thank you for hosting this amazing blog hop tour, my friend. I love these so much.

  19. I love the traditional plaids and colors you’ve used this year. It’s so pretty and they go so well with your beautiful home. And I don’t even like red!

Guess that’s why you have a show! So excited for you. Merry Christmas Kelly
