Christmas Home Style Series: A very rustic Christmas
So the festive season is pretty much upon us! The shops are filled with gifts, the shopping centres beautifully decorated and it’s nearly time to put up the tree (YAY)
So we are going to be doing a Christmas Home Style Series, we will be doing one post a week focusing on decorating your home for the holiday period! Do sign up to our blog posts to ensure you get this direct to your inbox once a week.
So we kick of this series by focusing on charming rustic looks for Christmas. Rustic looks are hugely popular and work so well in various homes. First thing to remember if you want to go for a more rustic look is to ensure you stick with this look throughout your property so it all ties in together and works well. We recommend lots of wooden prices and a nod towards more traditional style decor elements.

Rustic works particularly well mixed with reds, greens silvers and we also adore a little tartan thrown in!!! Add some hessian material to turn a jam jar and put in some pine cones and a candle to add a cosy feel of a winter cabin. Rustic tree decorations also look amazing and really add to the overall style – after all it’s usually the focal point of the room.

If you are wanting a beautiful centrepiece for your Christmas dinner you really are spoilt for choice. There is some stunning one’s you can buy but the beauty of a rustic look is that it’s such a great style to DIY things. One of our favourite is getting a nice tray or rustic looking box and filling with a mix of candles, some cute Christmas ornaments and plenty greenery! So pretty and simple. The key with rustic is to keep it simple, you don’t want to go overcrowd otherwise it will look messy and detract from the nice cosy vibe you are wanting to create.

A beautifully decorated fireplace is always one of our favorite things to see at Christmas, especially if you are lucky enough to have a real fire. It’s just so cosy being curled up next to it on the sofa watching Christmas movies whilst it’s freezing outside. Garland’s always look so lovely over the top with little twinkly fairy lights, you can also get rustic looking stockings easily from the internet to go with the theme of the house. Let your imagination guide you for some beautiful ideas, but just remember to keep it fairly simple.
