Our Christmas door decorations in partnership with Schlage. All ideas and opinions are my own.

‘Tis the season to get festive and it’s never too late to decorate for Christmas! I’m so excited to share our side door refresh with a few Christmas door decorations I couldn’t resist adding.

Is it me, or does it feel like you’re not the only one coming and going from your house? Having a second home is fun, but it means we’re often away and need someone to stay or check in on our primary residence. We frequently have babysitters that venture out with the girls and contractors we trust stopping by for work here and there.

Sometimes, it feels like a bit much to manage, especially when I can’t sit still myself. We decided there had to be a better way. Fortunately, there is!

You know my passion for blending style and function. The Schlage Connect Touchscreen Deadbolt in Aged Bronze does just that, and was such an easy update to our home. Door hardware is like the jewelry of a home, and who doesn’t want jewelry for Christmas?

We added the Schlage Connect Touchscreen to the side entrance for convenience. Each user can have their own code {up to 30}, it works with Amazon Alexa and connects with our computers and smartphones so we can always keep an eye on things. Using the Schlage Sense™ app {with no monthly subscription charge} you can create, delete and schedule access codes and even view lock activity.

The Schlage Connect is the gift of security, peace of mind and is so affordable and beautiful. It inspired me to give this little area of our home a much needed refresh. I was so excited to get started on this project that I forgot to take a true before shot. But trust me, it was bad and desperately needed this makeover!

I couldn’t decide whether to do another copper light there or something in black and didn’t want to invest in lighting right now, so I selected the Aged Bronze finish for the door set because it pairs well with either. It’s amazing how updating the lock made the original light fixture feel up-to-date. Now I’m glad I didn’t rush to replace it.

The pebble path is one of my favorite exterior features, but needed a little love. It was covered in mildew, so we power washed it and it looks like new again!

I added a 2″ thick coir door mat to compensate for how the path settled through the years and make the side entrance feel more significant. Coir transitions through seasons and is very practical for cleaning the muddy feet that come through that door for a snack after playing on the swing set.

pine garland and red ribbon

For Christmas door decorations, I draped a pine garland which makes it feel festive. It was my first time using pine and won’t be the last. It feels so easy {and was just as easy to hang}. I love how it wisps in the breeze.

Using a metal ring, I created a seeded eucalyptus wreath to hang just below the windows as another Christmas door decoration. It took just 20 minutes to make. I used inexpensive craft store satin ribbon to adorn it.

Just when I thought it couldn’t get better, it snowed.
