Christmastime is a season of comfort and joy – and the warm, homey elements of rustic design are perfect for spreading holiday cheer. If you’d like to put a rustic spin on your holiday home, we’ve got plenty of ideas for your space. Keep reading to see some of our favorite trends, products, and styles …
Rustic Materials for Christmas
The principles of rustic design can easily be applied to your holiday home. Rustic materials such as weathered or reclaimed wood, burlap, and galvanized metal are perfect for creating a warm and inviting environment – just what you need to spread Christmas cheer!
Pair these traditionally rustic elements with Christmas-ready fabrics and patterns to create an unmistakable seasonal look. Plaid, faux fur, flannel, and leather add a perfect wintry touch, and look right at home alongside down-to-earth rustic materials.
Tree Skirts & Collars
Add some rustic flair to your holiday space from right beneath the tree. Tree skirts and collars are perfect for infusing a subtle dose of style, and provide an excellent finishing touch to any room.
Look for styles that incorporate traditional rustic materials such as wood, metal, or burlap. We love the look of a farmhouse-inspired metal collar, or a cozy buffalo plaid tree skirt. Try a wooden box collar to make an unexpected statement, or add a touch of rusticity with a tabletop or doorstep tree in a burlap-wrapped pot.
Rustic Christmas Wreaths & Garlands
Wreaths and garlands are must-have pieces for the Christmas season, and there are plenty of rustic, earthy styles to choose from. We love super-simple designs such as berry wreaths, unlit twig garlands, and subtle burlap adornments.
Choose wreaths and garlands that maximize the chic simplicity of rustic Christmas style. Burlap ribbons, twig-style sprays, and natural elements such as berries and pine cones add plenty of Christmas spirit, all while honoring the no-fuss appeal of rustic design.
Rustic design is a celebration of the all-natural, and what better way to get the look than with the season’s iconic animal life? Use reindeer-inspired accents and décor to pay homage to Santa’s sleigh team – it’s an unmistakable nod to the season, and provides all the natural charm rustic style requires.
Whether you want to add a heavy dose of reindeer or go simple with subtle antler décor, there are myriad ways to get the look. Deer-printed throw pillows, wall art, and antler-inspired decorative accents are perfect for incorporating this iconic Christmas motif.
