Holiday Decorating Trend Spotlight: Farmhouse Christmas

What’s not to love about farmhouse-inspired Christmas decor? This holiday decorating theme embraces the eclectic style, featuring rustic pieces with a modern edge. Nothing is too fussy here, so if your decor looks lived-in, or something’s a bit out of place, all the better. This decorating style will welcome your thrift-store finds, mismatched kitchenware, and weathered mementos from years past. Get ready to give your home plenty of country Christmas flavor!

How to get started?

1. Homemade decorations

Let your DIY spirit flourish as you create holiday decorations by hand. Give your tree a one-of-a-kind look with handcrafted ornaments, or hang a Christmas card garland on your wall.

2. Textural interest

Mix textures to keep your farmhouse Christmas decor from looking staid. Burlap, felt, and galvanized metal are just some of the materials that will be right at home in this style. Hang a wooden plank sign or a plaque featuring a corrugated metal tree above your fireplace as a charming mantel accent.

3. Repurposed items

No need to stock up on new holders for this decorating style! Fill aged buckets, watering cans, or pitchers with faux holiday greenery for a fresh take on vase arrangements. Turn Mason jars or vintage lanterns into LED candle luminaries for safe accent lighting. Stock clear latch-lid canisters with peppermint sticks for old-time appeal. If you can reuse or restyle something to suit your decor, do it!

4. Unique statement pieces

Go on the hunt for those offbeat items that will make your farmhouse decor stand apart! Just a few ideas: a white resin reindeer head, a stack of vintage soda crates, an old trunk used as a table, or a darling antique sled or wagon.

5. Comfy accessories

Don’t forget plump decorative pillows, fringed throw blankets, and patchwork quilts to give warmth and comfort to living rooms and bedrooms.

Holiday Decorating Trend Spotlight: Scandinavian Christmas

If minimalism is your thing, you’ll love the Scandinavian Christmas decorating style. This pared-down holiday decorating theme draws inspiration from the Scandinavian region, with lots of natural touches and homespun accents. Simplicity and homey charm are key for this unpretentious Christmas look.

Here are a few basics you can use as a foundation for this style: natural wood decorations, greenery swags and wreaths, trees dappled with homemade ornaments, and presents wrapped in brown paper and tied with twine. To cozy it all up, you might want to add textural touches of snuggly faux fur—perhaps a rug, throw blanket, or tree skirt.

After you have the basics in place, you can enhance the Scandinavian holiday decorating style with one of three palettes (or use some combination to create a look that is all your own!):

1) stark black and pristine white

2) icy/frosted with metallic golden touches and candles

3) red and white or cream, especially Nordic patterns

Below are a few decorations that would look delightful amidst your Scandinavian-inspired Christmas decor. Click on each image below to view the items shown.

Merry Christmas to You and Yours

The Christmas lights swoop and twinkle over the eaves. The ornaments perch in the boughs of a plump pine tree. The tablecloth is spread evenly, every wrinkle effaced, the centerpiece in the exact center of the dining room table. All those boxes, hefted from attics or basements, have been squirreled away into corners, patiently waiting until the decorations must come down again. But for now, just take a deep breath. Look around and appreciate your handiwork. You are finally done!

So let the holiday visitors file in. Let them witness the garland winding meticulously around your tree, the small, reindeer-drawn sleigh bumping along your mantel, the tender nativity scene huddled near the window. Once they see the time you’ve invested as well as your astute taste in decor, they are sure to shower you in compliments. What’s more, you have created a veritable haven for them. The holidays are best spent basking in a parade of warm colors and cheery decorations. Food just tastes better, words just seem warmer when you are immersed in a beautiful atmosphere. You have provided that atmosphere. Great job, stylish host, but now it’s time for a little break. Kick back, grab a sliver of fruit cake (or don’t), and watch your visitors revel in your well-decorated home.
