Come on in and take a tour of our Christmas home this year – I’m so glad you’re here. And even though it’s technically “after” Christmas (LOL), I hope you find some inspiration and tips you can use for 2022. This year I decided to use blue, white, and a pop of copper, and I really love how it all came together. And of course, you can always use traditional colors (like red and green) as well, just by tweaking the accents and accessories. Ok, let’s get to it! Welcome to our Christmas Home Tour 2021: Blue, White & Copper.
Christmas Home Tour 2021: Blue, White & Copper
Our Color Palette:
Our color palette this year is blue and white, with a pop of copper brown.
I found all of my goodies pictured below at – At Home (formerly Garden Ridge).
- I think they have had this color combo with the Christmas ornament balls for a couple of years now, and I have always wanted to use the copper brown.
Then I found the glitter pinecone ornaments, jewel-colored glitter trees, and some coordinating ribbons to pull it all together.
TIP: Use different shades of blues – it will add so much more interest.
- The large ornament balls are more turquoise and navy blue, and the medium and small ornament balls are more cobalt blue.
- The trees pull in all of the different shades of blue.
- The ribbons tie all of the blues and browns together.
Ok, let’s get to our Christmas Home Tour 2021!
Christmas Home Tour 2021: Blue, White & Copper
So, why am I not starting the tour with the front door and porch?
Well it’s decorated red (LOL!), and it will be at the end of the post.
Ok, carry on!
In our dining room, I used primarily white (shocker – haha!), and then added in some pops of blue and copper through accents/accessories.
I also added a different blue striped ribbon/bow to the silver wreath on our mirror – just to add some color to the wall. (See details in entry section).
Here’s a better view of the ornaments.

Don’t laugh, but I turn on these lamps every night when I’m cooking!
I’ve just gotta have some type of inspiration when I’m cooking 😉
I kept the entry very simple this year. The only 2 things I added were the white feather wreath and the “Believe” sign.
But you may have noticed that there’s a common element carried from the dining room to the entry?
- Yes, it’s the blue striped ribbon that I mentioned above.
I know it’s not going to get a huge applause – LOL – but it’s just enough to keep things flowing.

And I always love this view from the entry to the living room.
It gives you a better idea of how each room is individually decorated, but still looks cohesive.

The majority of pictures and accents/accessories will be in the living room – just a little FYI!
For the mantel this year I used the 2 blue jewel-toned glitter trees, and added the assorted ornament balls to the garland.
- I just noticed this really isn’t a good picture with the fireplace dirty – ugh – but it’s going to have to stay.
I am loving this new attitude of “it’s ALL good!”
Here is a closeup picture of the trees so that you can see the different shades of blue in the glitter.
For mantel Christmas greenery/garland:
- sprinkle in 3 -5 balls (of your main accent color), and leave the other balls neutral: gold, champagne, silver, and white.
- use different textures/surfaces for balls: some with glitter, shiny, flat, ribbed, etc.
Now you can see how I carried the accent colors and balls into the bookshelf, and living room centerpiece.
For the bookshelf, I just popped in some of my:
- white and silver ceramic trees, fur gifts, manger scene, white trees, and of course the ornament balls again.
I also added one small vase filled with balls – and the navy striped ribbon.
Here is a closeup of the centerpiece.

This year I decided to add a soft blue ribbon to our tree instead of my usual white pom-pom garland.
I really love how it turned out. It’s very subtle, but just adds a little interest to the room.
And of course my little tree collar hack!

For the couch:
I used some of my go-to’s: the gold glitter “merry” pillow and blue throw blanket – to complete this side of the room.
And you can’t have a Christmas home tour without some gifts! Right?
- Click 5 tips: how to wrap Christmas presents blue for more info.
You can see that I added the birch wood ribbon and copper brown ornaments to pull in all of the colors in here also.
- That whimsical wrapping paper with the houses – is definitely my favorite this year! It makes me smile every time I see it.
So, this is what happens when you’re interfering with your dog’s napping spot – haha!!
I guess Boomer decided that the photo shoot was over….. and climbed onto his perch 😉
And then there was red….
Here are a couple of pictures of our front porch this year. So, why didn’t I decorate it “according to the color theme?”
Since this was my very first year to do a post on our Christmas front porch, I thought most readers would still like to see the traditional red.
But I have to admit that I really love how it turned out!
Simple version pictured above.

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year 2022 Everyone!
Love & Hugs 🙂
