Jennifer Rizzo’s Boho and Vintage-Inspired MCM Holiday Home

Welcome to my home! It is so funny to look back at 2011 when the original Holiday Housewalk started and see how much my home and style has changed. Come on into the kitchen and we’ll start the tour of my boho and vintage-inspired MCM holiday home! To start the tour from the beginning and see all of the Day 1 homes, start here.

I had so much fun decorating my home for the holidays for you. to get a better look at my holiday decor, you can see my home tour video here, where I walk around and show you a few things in a up close view, including my mantel and open shelving in the kitchen.


This year, I draped my mercury glass garland over the transom window we installed a few years ago. I love these garlands, and have used them all over the house. I think they add just the right bit of sparkle.

Simple Christmas kitchen with greenery and fruit

In the kitchen itself, I kept it simpler with fruit and greenery and a few little bits of holiday pieces like vintage Santa mugs and a cute window display. Since our kitchen is so hard working, I like to keep the counters open. Our island has morphed many times. Most recently, I used a vintage sewing cabinet and baker’s slab to create an island that is a better scale in our space. It still allows for us to have more counter prep space and move easily around each other.

Apple pie and wine

Of course a little mulled wine (from this recipe that is amazing) and an apple tart from Trader Joe’s is always a good idea.

Holiday kitchen window decorated with orange slice garland and greenery

Our kitchen window is my favorite place to be sometimes. I love looking out over the yard and how the sunlight comes in when there’s snow on the ground. The cute Christmas in the Village tea towel is from my online store. You can also find a matching pillow and ornament as a part of my Cozy and Bright Christmas Collection.

Our dining area saw some big changes this year. The walls were repainted in a coat of dark green paint, and I love how the pom pom garland pops.

Christmas holiday boho MCM vintage dining room

I added a fun boho wreath to our vintage office door for some color and a small Norfolk pine tree next to it with handmade poof tassels.

Holiday Tablescape with vintage candles and greens

I set the table with a linen runner and vintage brass candle sticks.

Candles and eucalyptus for a holiday centerpeice

Tucked between them are fresh boxwood and ornaments with a few wrapped chocolate oranges. Who doesn’t love a little chocolate that is easy to grab, and I love their gold foil wrapper.


Vintage MCM hutch and bottle brush tree forest and cedar garland in a boho and vintage-inspired mcm holiday home

And my new piece is the vintage MCM hutch adorned with a small bottlebrush tree forest and a fresh cedar garland over the top. It was a big change from our other cabinet, and I love the natural wood.

Vintage sign and boho tree

Looking into our living room is a vintage sign I bought a few years ago that used to be the back of a pre-1909 advertising bench back, you can see our tree with hand made ornaments. These fun boho ornaments were recycled from last year’s tree.

They are my favorite ornaments next to these modern glitter globe ornaments I made a few years ago, I used pretty velvet ribbon from Anthropologie for the hangers.

Boho and gold leaf Christmas tree

They were fun and easy to make and use gold leaf to create a sparkle. We ran out of room at the top of our tree this year, so I improvised and hung it from a hook on the ceiling. I actually really love it, because I feel like getting a star on top is a wrestling match every year to get it to sit straight.

Boho handpainted Christmas snowy tree

I added wood beads to our mantel and tree this year for a boho feel.

Living room copper vase and MCM table

This copper vase hold fresh eucalyptus, and smells amazing! On the mantel I added the mini-cottages repainted from last year, and more bottle brush trees.

One of the “funnest” decor pieces I added this year was a green vintage metal key holder. I added some of my Gram’s Shiny Brite’s in a Christmas tree pattern on the hooks. I bought it at Warehouse 55 where I opened up my new mini-shop.

The final stop on our tour is our bedroom. Our pretty dusty warm pink quilt  from Target looks pretty with a pink and green color scheme. The stocking pillow on our bed is handmade, and I’ll have a DIY coming up for you!

Christmad bedroom with pink bedding and green accents

We hung preserved boxwood wreaths next to our bed, and put a cute little bottlebrush tree inside.

I added an abstract Christmas tree to the far wall next to the hanging plant, and a few evergreen sprigs from the yard in a white vase. That’s hubby’s side and he prefers everything a little bit simpler with decorating than I do.

Jennifer Rizzo's Christmas bedroom

Inside the two boxwood wreaths next to our bed is a little bottlebrush tree. I have my favorite Christmas books on my nightstand (and of course Creatively Christmas), and a sweet concrete luminary house.

Christmas books on the bedside

Over our bed, is a braided wool garland from roving yarn, and a poof and glitter ball laden garland I found at the craft store. I thought it was so fun when I came across it, I just had to add it over our bed.

Glitter ball garland

The sequins catch the morning light, which is a fun way to wake up in the morning! A little disco bedroom magic, you gotta love that! 😉

Thank you so much for visiting and joining me for our little boho and vintage-inspired MCM holiday home tour.
