The fireplace:
Buffalo plaid stockings will look just darling hanging from the mantel, waiting to be filled with treats from St. Nick. Line the mantel with faux birch LED candles, a mini pine cone tree, and a wilderness sculpture to amp up the lodge aesthetic.

The dining table:
Draped in buffalo plaid linens, your table will beckon everyone to gather ‘round for home-cooked dishes. For a festive accent, select reindeer napkin rings and a faux greenery centerpiece.

The Christmas tree:
A popular holiday song celebrates the loveliness of the Christmas tree’s branches, but you can give some decorating love to the base of the tree too. A buffalo plaid tree skirt looks wonderfully cozy encircling the foot of the tree. Decorate with pine cones, berry garland, and ornaments depicting deer or cardinals. Top the tree with a simple country star or a rustic angel embellished with faux fur.

Benches, chairs, and sofas:
Bare furnishings can seem chilly in the winter, so make them snuggle-ready with buffalo plaid throws and pillows. You can even layer the pillows atop your bed and drape a folded throw across the foot.

The Cozy Serenity of Rustic Lodge Decor

There is nothing quite like the cozy serenity of a rustic lodge theme. This style weaves wilderness so intimately with your decor that a doe traipsing across your hardwood floor would be nothing unusual. To get this look, you will need home accents that seem to coax tree limbs right out from between the floorboards.

Woodland animals will make a natural atmosphere flourish in any room. Bears, caribou, and salmon trek steadily along bands of earthy colors in the Caribou Comforter Bedding by Croscill. Other outdoor elements such as canoes, pine cones, and leaves are interspersed among the animals, all surrounded on either side by streams of fleece trim and majestic plains of acorn microsuede. A plaid bedskirt complements this folksy comforter.

Silhouettes of bears flit along the Cabin Retreat Area Rug, along with fish and moose. These animals cavort around a neutral area bordered on either sides by triangular motifs. Merlot, Evening, and Praline are all color choices that sing with the multihued harmony of the forest.

The resin stag depicted in the Deer Head Wall Hanging sports impressive antlers and will look robust anywhere in the home.

Likewise, the Autumn Eyes Wolf Wall Tapestry draws its rustic inspiration from animal life. Gaze burning like an autumnal wood line, a wolf peers fixedly from behind fall foliage in this jacquard-woven tapestry.

Take a cue from the realistic Timber Log Wall Shelves and invest in rustic decor with a tree bark-like texture. Crafted from resin, these shelves appear to be fashioned from logs or twigs and will look right at home with your pine cones or faux greenery. These shelves will also proudly display your photos from successful hunting trips.

The rustic lodge theme, like the forest it occupies, should be allowed to sprawl from room-to-room. The Pine Cone Lace Shower Curtain features a pine cone motif in lace, bound above and below by a coniferous tree line.

The Pine Cone Bath Towel Sets mimic the soft brown of deer or squirrel hide and will coordinate beautifully with rustic bath decor. A cream shade is also available, a close cousin to the sight of nature blanketed over for the winter. Towels may be monogrammed for an additional charge to give your bathroom a personalized touch. Decorative bands on each color are embroidered with pine cones and pine needles. A little forest fauna will go a long way with the rustic lodge theme!
