Winter Botanicals Holiday Decorating Lifestyle

A blazing fire in the hearth highlights the surrounding greenery and metallic glimmers. Winter Frost blankets silver and mint green baubles resting among pine cones and snow-flocked faux pine boughs for a refreshing dash of wintry atmosphere. LED candles sitting in the candelabra atop the mantel emit a soft glow. Ivory Shama Candles impart the neutrals of an icy palette while the golden Holiday Shimmer Candles flicker with mesmerizing sparkles.

Encourage the winter forest growing around your fireplace with gleaming tree figurines. Add an element of movement with the Glitter Swirl LED Christmas Tree. When neutral stockings with metallic embellishments hang from the Elegant Gift Stocking Holders, holiday enchantment begins to descend upon your room.

Resting gracefully near the fireplace, the Christmas tree enhances the spellbinding display. Use a skirt that matches the stockings, complete with shimmering ribbons and colors collected from a Winter Garden. Tie into the silver and gold hues on the mantel with the You’ve Gotta Have It Ornaments. Hovering at the tip of the tree, the Anna Winter Angel tops off the decorations with feathery wings and a gown of white and silver.

Want to add a flourish to this otherworldly scene? Consider a bold red reminiscent of cardinals, holly berries, and Santa Claus. Imbue your decor with the rustic charm of the Cardinal Decorative Lighted Water Lantern or brighten the room through the night with the Cardinal LED Nightlight. Captivate your guests further with Love, Joy, Hope, ivory tones, and holly motifs.

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.

Holiday Decorating Trend Spotlight: Mountain Christmas

Do you feel like you need a secluded little hideaway to escape to when the holiday season reaches its frenzied peak? Mountain Christmas decor is all about coziness and relaxation—with a few rustic touches added to your home, you’ll be ready to snuggle under your plushest blanket and let those holiday stresses melt away as you sip cocoa in front of a crackling fire (real or virtual).

Take a look at how we brought some mountain-inspired magic to this living room.
Click here to view most of the seasonal and rustic decor we used.

  • We adorned the window and wall on either side of the fireplace with lodge-themed tier curtains, a lighted canvas depicting a vintage holiday scene, and a faux wood display ledge.
  • We warmed up the bare floor with a rustic area rug bordered in pine cones and plaid, then placed an accent chair topped with a throw pillow nearby.
  • We placed wilderness Santas on the floor and dangled snowmen Christmas stockings from the mantel. We opted for seasonal decor in earthy, muted tones rather than bright reds or glittery golds.
  • We gave some nature flavor to the area above the fireplace with a pair of decorative 24”H trees covered in pine cones and a pre-lit, frosted faux greenery wreath.

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.

White Christmas

No matter what the meteorologist says, it will be a White Christmas this year. After all, you’ve been dreaming of it (and playing enough Bing Crosby)! This holiday decorating style draws its inspiration from freshly fallen snow, powdery and pristine, softly glittering in the morning sun. Christmas decorations in white and ivory radiate a gentle, delicate beauty, like winter in its quietest hours. Angels seem to glow from within, while other decorations mimic the intricate structure of snowflakes.
