The magic of Christmas—twinkling lights, movie nights fireside, Christmas cookies baking in the oven, your favorite candles lit and staying warm in your cable knit blankets.
The idealistic image of Christmas comes with special memories and traditions. Mine is the cozy and overly decorated homes that are depicted in holiday movies. They all similarly give off a wholesome and warming feel.
I’ve complied a visual guide of my favorite inspired interiors from popular Christmas movies: Home Alone, The Holiday, Borrowed Hearts, and It Happened on 5th Avenue.
I couldn’t start this holiday interior blog post off without crediting the Home Alone house.

A countryside cottage resembles all of our cozy Christmas dreams, right?

In Borrowed Hearts, one of the character’s doll houses becomes a reality. Hence, little Jac found this movie beyond magical. I’m going to ruffle some feathers here. In my opinion, Borrowed Hearts is a classic Hallmark movie before they got real cheesy. I still watch this movie every year because how can one resist a beautiful, large traditional home that gets made over for a family at Christmas?
A jolly White Christmas spent in a luxurious home on 5th Avenue has an oh so dreamy ring to it. Wouldn’t you agree? And that’s certainly the feeling you get as you watch this black and white classic movie, It Happened on 5th Avenue.
