At Bungalow 47, our style started out as a mix of Chantelle and I and what we loved. We each had a distinct style, different from each other, but there was always a common ground where we crossed over and loved the same stuff. Of course that always includes vintage! At Christmas time, it’s always fun to see how everyone brings their style to Christmas decor, so we thought we’d share a little peek into ours.
Chantelle has a thing for kitschy vintage Santas and decor, including large plastic ones! This little corner shows her Christmas style perfectly. And of course you’ve got to have painted vintage furniture!
A view of her pretty dining room, featuring vintage beadboard and salvage.
She’s all about the plastic Santas, gotta have a multitude of sizes!
Her talented and handy husband installed all that gorgeous, hand-rubbed tin on the ceiling! Isn’t it to die for?
At my home, I have a tiny bit of rustic vintage in my little Christmas car collection, but otherwise we’re keeping it a bit traditional.
Weird skinny tree is perfect for our empty nester house amongst the peely chippy salvage goodness.
We have a strong tradition of Christmas stockings filled with mystery gifts we make a game out of guessing. Not gonna lie, the competition gets pretty intense the years we get to all be together, but it’s always fun!
Add a little bit of vintage Christmas bling with ornaments and silver trees.
And a kissing ball in the foyer, just in case!
Gifts are wrapped simply with a bit of the outdoors and we’re ready for Christmas!
How do you decorate for Christmas? Does it include vintage decor or sentimental items? We’d love to hear from you! May you have a very Merry Christmas and a happy new year!
Happy holidays, Jill and Chantelle
