How to get a Rustic Look for the Holidays
It may seem like it’s a ways off, but the holiday season will be here before we know it. That means you’re probably starting to think about how you’re going to decorate your home to get the perfect, cozy look for the holidays. If you want to really make your home feel full of Yuletide cheer, consider going for the rustic look this year. It has a natural warmth and feel that reminds us of our childhood and the idyllic feeling that only the holidays can bring. Here are some ways you can bring that feeling to your home. I love using pumpkins and nature themes through-out the holiday seasons as part of my decorating. My leaf pillows can be incorporated for the holidays because it has a rustic but colorful vibe to it.
Embrace the Natural!
The holiday season is all about that magical woodland feeling of fresh snow quietly falling while you’re snuggled up by a fireplace. Create that woodland look in your home by incorporating wood signs into your decor. You should also consider bringing in other pieces of nature for a finishing touch, such as pine cones, twigs, berries, antlers, and faux furs to bring the outdoors into your home and complete the look.
Along with bringing in wood sign and touches of the outdoors, giving your home a lodge-like feel by incorporating wood into your decor is another way to create the rustic look in your home. Reclaimed barn wood not only breathes new life into old pieces, but it can also bring a piece of rustic living to the modern world, creating a cozy look for the holidays. When I designed my home the wood beams was something I wanted so that I could have a rustic look through-out the year.
There’s something about the color white that provokes a clean, classic look with a touch of rustic flare. Use classic white decor as accent pieces such as throw rugs and upholstery to make your home feel like it’s been covered in a fresh blanket of fluffy snow. My blue and white rugs, white pumpkins through out my home give that snowy feeling during the holidays.
Make Your Decor Flow!
Tie different pieces together to give your home a rustic look that flows from room to room. I added velvet pumpkins in the bedroom to keep the pumpkins theme going. Incorporate vintage white and blue vases with fall flowers to create rustic kitchen decor that can easily flow over to the dining room.
Nothing says rustic decor more than candles. Its my favorite accent for the holiday. After all, electricity hasn’t been around forever and before then, people used candles functionally around their homes. Bring back a little of the nostalgia from days past by placing candles around your home. I use them everywhere.
Using these tips, your home should be ready for the holiday season in no time. You can even find some of rustic pieces simply by walking out your back door and checking out what’s available in nature. Let me know what you will be adding for the holidays.
