Of course, the foundation of any Christmas decorating is a good tree. There’s a lot to be said for a quality, pre-lit tree. At 7 feet tall, this tree provides the structure you need to build your holiday centerpiece. 

Sprinkle in Nostalgia

Entryways are easily overlooked while decorating for the holidays. But these spaces are where your guests will first step foot! Add nostalgic touches like this wood chair, or this galvanized metal pail with rope handles, to render a simple elegance to your farmhouse Christmas. Plus, you can't go wrong with mini trees for a bonus woodland theme.

Modern Farmhouse

A simple leather couch is dressed up with plaid and pickup truck throw pillows that can easily be swapped out after the holidays. We love the dangling spruce and antler, a call to Christmas reindeer.

Metallic Christmas touches, pinecones, garland and a small string of snowflakes complement the wood designs on the paneled refrigerator and island, both of which homeowner Shannon did herself.

Dramatic colors like this bold painted wall in Midnight Stroll by Clark & Kensington can do with a little spruce for instant classic Christmas! The antique gold mirror acts as the ultimate backdrop for enhancing vintage holiday collectibles like this zinc tray, trees and miniature house.

One word best describes this living room: cozy! The chunky wool throw draped around the tree adds a cozy feel to the room. Who doesn't want to dream of a white Christmas on this comfy couch nestled among the throw pillows?

The kitchen nook takes on subtle holiday charm through touches of greenery and a scroll with lyrics from a popular Christmas carol. The mugs, bowl, platter and wall art also feature text but don't overwhelm thanks to a predominantly neutral palette.

A Festive Retreat

This home's rustic take on holiday decor is inspiring, as is the very idea that even your bathtub can participate in the holiday cheer.

This fireplace embraces the return to nature celebrated in farmhouse style. Stockings are hung with care but are made of natural fibers offset by greenery and the pop of gold in the vintage mirror above. The red brick and white paint complete the grouping of classic Christmas colors.
