Our Favorite Christmas Kitchens
No matter what season, the kitchen is always the heart of the home. While we focus our attention on other seasonal spots–trimming the Christmas tree, hanging festive wreaths on front doors, setting sophisticated holiday tables, decorating our merry mailboxes–we often forget the space in the home where we spend so much time. In the kitchen, we're prepping the turkey, baking holiday cookies, gathering around the breakfast table with family. If we are spending so much time in the kitchen, we must make sure it feels festive and bright. Cue the lights, linens, platters, and more. Our collection of Christmas décor ideas will help you make the heart of your home holiday-ready. They will also add more joy and merriment to your home without getting in the way of your Christmas treat- baking plans.
Lush greenery and arrangements add texture and warmth to a space with exposed beams and open shelving.
All Dressed Up
Switch out your everyday linens for festive holiday-inspired fabrics like a panel of green gingham.
Tiny touches (like the wreath hanging in the window, an arrangement of wintry sticks on the island) are just enough holiday decor for a high-traffic area.
An upholstered bench is the best place for cozying up on Christmas morning. Two Parsons-style end chairs sport deep purple slipcovers very an extra-luxe touch.
From the chandelier to the windowsill, this kitchen is bursting with holiday cheer. Embellish your chandelier and make a statement with an overflowing centerpiece.
When the kitchen opens into your family room, it's important for the decor to carry through. Here, the kitchen’s colors worked their way into the decorations like the blue and red wreath and gold and green Christmas tree.
Let your festive entertaining ideas play into your kitchen's style. An impressive display of Christmas cookies and an extrvagant candy bar adds just the right amount of color and cheer.
Red and green are not the only Christmas colors. Work with your year-round palette, and bring in blue and green ornaments to accentuate your look.
Keep it simple and line tables with flowers in deep reds and greens.
A simple, bright wreath makes the kitchen’s décor decisively seasonal, and colorful treats displayed in glass jars bring added cheer.
This streamlined kitchen leans on green to warm up the cool color palette. Silver wreaths play off the appliances, almost as if the dishwasher is part of the seasonal décor.
Unexpected Color Combos
Not everything must be red and green. Bring in festive touches–tulle and ornaments– in shades of plum and turquoise.
Advent calendar made from statement pillar candles, draped garland hanging from the lights, and a twinkling Christmas tree help make this kitchen a central location for holiday hosting.
Ready for the Cookie Exchange
A clear counter sets the stage for our favorite time of year: cookie season. Make plenty of space for baking, exchanging, and devouring with family and friends.
Build a House
A gingerbread house can make a great centerpiece too. In fact, we can't think of anythinf more festive.
Pops of Red
Neutral kitchens are ideal for adding bright seasonal shades of red and green. We love the dramatic garland that dresses the back door.
Simple touches can be just as festive. Hang a miniature evergreen wreath over the stove for a seasonal pick-me-up.
A bright, white, natural light-filled kitchen is a dream foundation for layering with seasonal touches.
