Christmas Decorating Trend for 2018: Vintage Farmhouse

If you’re all about comfy and cozy Christmas decor, you’ll love this decorating trend: vintage farmhouse! This holiday decor puts an old-fashioned twist on the beloved farmhouse style. Expect to see retro pickup trucks, weathered details, country table linens, and plaid accessories. These home accents intermingle to create a holiday style rich with nostalgia and charm.

Here are just a few decorating ideas that will lead you to this holiday look. To see all the items we used for this farmhouse dining room, simply click here.

Vintage Farmhouse Christmas Decor

Set a no-fuss tablescape with a braided table runner and placemats in festive colors. Yarn-braided accessories are an inviting alternative to traditional table linens.

Top the table with vintage-style mugs and plates that have a sweet antique appearance. Designs of trucks, wagons, and tractors play up the rural aesthetic.

Get as creative as you like with tabletop centerpieces. Since this holiday style is more relaxed, it naturally lends itself to all kinds of displays: a truck-shaped cookie jar, Mason jars with LED tealights, an old pitcher with faux berries and sprigs, or even a crate with pomegranates and greenery. If you prefer a traditional centerpiece, you can’t go wrong with frosted greenery and red ribbon in a vase.

Warm up wooden benches and chairs with plump cushions, throws, and decorative pillows. Stitched details and fringed edges will help your homespun holiday vision come to life.

Remember to give some farmhouse flavor to the mantel too! Repurpose a plaid table runner as a mantel scarf, and dangle applique Christmas stockings from your favorite decorative hooks.

1. Antique-inspired serveware and crockery
Your off-white plates and platters will be at home in the farmhouse style. Mix and match dinnerware from different sets, and gather a few pieces just for display. For your table or island, place utensils or artificial flowers in a vintage-looking crock.

2. Open shelving
To give your kitchen an airy, casual feel, select furnishings with open storage or glass-front doors. For a touch of yesteryear, display glass milk bottles, Mason jars, wooden crates, or metal canisters.

3. Cutout wall decor
Wall items spelling out “kitchen” or “eat” will look darling in your farmhouse kitchen. A wall hook rack like this one is both decorative and functional, keeping your oven mitt, potholder, and towel at hand.

4. Table linens with simple patterns
Simple patterns and primary colors keep your table from looking too fussy and formal. Buffalo checks, gingham squares, and stripes work well.

5. Burlap-look fabrics
To capture the bucolic appeal of prairie life, choose window treatments and throw pillows with the look of burlap. The neutral color and texture will call to mind burlap feed sacks.

6. Woven items
Woven storage baskets have a rustic quality that suits the farmhouse style. Look for woven floor baskets and wall pockets to store throws, magazines, beauty essentials, towels, or toilet paper rolls.

7. Rustic accent lighting
Lantern-style candleholders with LED candles are a safe alternative to lanterns with wax candles. Accent your rustic farmhouse decor with copper-finished metal and distressed wood holders.

8. Galvanized metal decor
Home accents with the look of galvanized metal will remind you of old wash buckets and pails. This topiary-style wall art has rustic and galvanized finishes as well as plenty of floral charm.
