Are you decorating your home for a cozy, cottage-inspired farmhouse Christmas? If so, you are in the right place! Featured today on Theresa’s Reviews, I’m sharing how you can create a modern farmhouse style that brings the holiday spirit to life.
Swap out Holiday Decor with Everyday Decorations
Add holiday decor, but make sure to keep the simplicity of farmhouse style. Remove everyday decorations before adding your holiday items. This will keep your home from looking cluttered.
Keep a Cohesive Color Scheme
Christmas decor should compliment the color scheme your home has. Our home has a whitewashed brick fireplace, which goes well with white accents, such as the Flurry of Elegance bouquet from Teleflora. The bold red and green colors match our ornaments, stockings, and other holiday decor.
Some colors that are popular with modern farmhouse and cottage decor are gray, navy blue and black and white. Since these are neutral colors, you can add in some bright festive colors that really pop against the backdrop of your home.
Flocked garlands and flocked trees are a huge trend in farmhouse decor. These snow-inspired faux evergreen accents bring the beauty of the outdoors into your home.
Another farmhouse popular trend is to use wire baskets because they add a modern accent to keep the look contemporary and not too rustic or country. Add a soft, festive green blanket to create a cozy and inviting style.
Remind guests that your home is a welcoming space. Create a message saying “Let’s Be Cozy” on a letterboard. Place it next to rustic wooden ice skates. This beckons guests in to enjoy warmth and happiness.
Display wall art with inspirational sayings. Place it on a picture ledge shelf, or use removable wall hanging tape to easily switch out the seasonal decor.
Live evergreens bring a natural, rustic look to your home. Place evergreens by your front door, and use a real wreath as a welcoming and inviting touch.
Decorating your home to have a cozy, cottage-inspired farmhouse Christmas is simple. Minimalism can be photogenic, which is why you don’t have to have a large home or lots of accent pieces. Keep it simple. Using a few key pieces can help keep your decor cohesive for a photo-ready Christmas morning!
