French Christmas Décor at the Farmhouse
Tip 1: Antique Finishes and Textures
Gold detailing and sophisticated finishes will never go out of style! This is especially true for French Christmas décor, which has a timeless feel.
Tip 2: Bring the Outdoors In
This season, you may find yourself with a renewed sense of appreciation for nature. Consider bringing the outdoors in and incorporating nature-themed items into your French Christmas décor. This works well as a cross-over with farmhouse style too.
Tip 3: Soft, Muted Christmas Colors
For a homegrown look, consider soft, muted French Christmas décor colors. Gorgeous natural foliage with creams, whites, blush or copper brings a special touch to any space.
Tip 4: Warm Ambiance
Twinkling lights and candles add instant cozy and a charming vibe, especially for French Christmas decor. This season is the perfect time to incorporate new lights and add magic to any space!

The French have a relaxed, country style that emulates warmth and coziness. Consider dialing down your French Christmas décor this year and using items you truly love.
Tip 6: Personal Touches
