It is never too soon to start thinking about the holidays. For the avid decorator, the Christmas season is an exciting time to get creative with different design schemes. The contemporary Christmas scheme is one for the minimalist; soft earth tones and neutral pieces adorn the modern tree and set the base for the season’s decorum. Infusing a home with Christmas cheer is an exciting process. Creative ideas for decorating your dinner table, tree, and mantle will make the yuletide spirit stretch to every corner in your house.

This Christmas season calls decorators to return to the rustic. Give your home a natural Christmas aesthetic with soft textures, earth tones, golden lights, and unique pieces. From the tree to the wrapping, give every detail a rustic touch. Balsam Hill offers a great variety of decorations for giving your home a natural atmosphere.

Go Rustic This Holiday Season

This holiday season, switch things up with a rustic design scheme. Rustic Christmas décor can give the home a subdued Christmas vibe that has a distinct elegance and warmth. A rustic atmosphere is inviting and soft yet doesn’t sacrifice sophistication. With reclaimed wood serving as a base for table chargers and ornament accents, your house will breathe nature vibes; using the season’s greenery for table accents and wrapping will bring an earthy touch to the small details. With a rustic palette, your home will be the warm, cozy, and stylish haven for the holidays. Here are some ideas for giving your home a rustic Christmas feel.

The Dinner Table

The Dinner table is the center of social activity during the holidays. A place where family and friends will commune, eat, share, and laugh, focusing on your table décor is never a bad place to start your season decorating. Of all the schemes, rustic tables offer a warm and inviting space for communing. A great way to give your table a rustic vibe is to go with a gold, cream, and green color scheme. Select a place setting that pairs whites and golds against a wooden charger for a soft rustic vibe. Use greenery for a centerpiece and line the table with candles.

The Tree

The tree is the centerpiece of any holiday design scheme. Going with a rustic design for your tree will transform your living room into a cozy cabin getaway. This Christmas season, bring the natural charm of the forest into your living room. From burlap ribbon to wooden ornaments, and soft golden lights, your tree will be glowing with holiday magic. An artificial tree is a great choice for bearing the weight of wooden ornaments. Additionally, artificial trees will allow you to choose a shade and shape that is the best fit for your design desires. You can choose from a wide selection of artificial trees at the Balsam Hill outlet

The Gifts

When it comes to decorating, it is important to make every detail match your design scheme- gift-wrapping is no exception. While extravagant ribbons and vibrant reds are the go-to favorites for traditional gift-wrapping, you can give your presents a rustic touch. Presents wrapped in brown paper bound with twine and accented with a piece of greenery are a great way to give your gifts a natural aesthetic. You can even line your staircase with gifts for added decoration.

Every year decorators look forward to the new design trends of the Christmas season. This year marks a return to minimalism- an appreciation of the arboreal beauty of pine. This holiday season, expect to walk into many of your friend’s homes and see bare pines adorned with geometric ornaments that are accented in golden light.
