Stress Less at Christmas

Relax and celebrate Christmas at an old place in the country -- no matter where you live. This collection blends nostalgia and nature in a look that trades sleek and trendy for simple and timeless. The emphasis is on natural colors, shapes, textures, and patterns. Abundant greenery, whimsical woodland creatures, and handmade-look decorations convey casual charm.

Lodge-look front door and porch.

Greenery Greeting

Greenery and small trees give your entry a lodge-in-the-woods look. Folksy tree decor and a DIY moose set a relaxed tone. Rustic details include weathered finishes on the wooden planters and metal pails.

Entryway with Christmas decorations.

Holiday Greeting

For a naturally festive entry, arrange a swag of live greens, pinecones, berry picks (#388576), and ribbon (#585718) on the door (#508571). Hang a berry wreath (#477176) over a table that holds snow-scene glass canisters (#677335, #677336), reindeer jar candles (#677331), LED candles (#677321, #677344, #395328, #395329), a fox (#677522), and an owl (#677320). Loop snowflake Christmas ornaments (#674139) over the drawer pulls, and add color to fiber baskets (#606279) with reindeer ornaments (#677412). Catch tracked-in snow with a pair of accent rugs (#158305).

Living room with Christmas decor.

Set the Scene

Let a gray-green wall color (Valspar Smoke Infusion, #5002-1B) set a fresh backdrop for a living room decked out naturally. Create two focal points: a Scotch pine tree topped with picks (#585795) and poinsettias (#585831), and a DIY wooden star decoration for the mantel. Add more greenery by connecting twin live wreaths with ribbon (#585718). Use pillows (#677489, model PW01-GREEN) and throws to bring color and softness to the furniture.

Go Green

Live greenery makes a room look -- and smell -- like Christmas. Whether you buy live greens or cut them from your yard, be sure to keep them fresh.

  • Slow-drying evergreens work best. Consider pine, a long-lasting choice with excellent needle retention.
  • Fir, which has short, flat needles, also carries an invigorating scent. Fir is more accepting of hot and dry conditions, so it’s a great choice for indoor use.
  • Before you hang greenery, trim the ends and soak (unadorned) in water overnight, then let air-dry completely. This helps prevent premature drying and needle loss.
  • Spritz live greenery with water daily. Avoid drenching -- and possibly staining -- walls. If you can, take down greens before spraying them.
  • Dry evergreens are a fire hazard. Check the needles often by bending them -- they should flex, not break. If needles break, remove the dry sections and replace them with fresh greenery.
  • Learn more about how to care for decorative live greens.

Designer Tip

Not sure how many lights to put on your tree? A good rule of thumb is 100 lights for every foot of tree height. So a 6- to 7-foot tree calls for 600–700 lights. But if you really love lights, you may want to double or even triple that amount.

Mantel with Christmas decorations.

Decorating Details

Give the mantel star a strong supporting cast: log-look LED candles (#677343, #677344) in stands (#677348, #677349), reindeer (#674166), ball ornaments (#674181, #739654), greens, and berry picks (#388576). Hang stockings (#673915, #673916) that look hand-knitted.

Wooden village Christmas decorations.

Christmas Village

These little houses convey a folk-art charm. To make them, simply cut the desired shapes from wood, paint, and distress.

Personalized Christmas present tub.

Gift Tub

Here’s a rustic way to personalize presents. Give a metal tub (#3712) a weathered finish, add red-painted rope, and apply chalkboard paint for the name tag.

Cozy Christmas

Create a cozy feel for meals with rustic holiday decor. A 4-foot pre-lit artificial wreath (#195631) catches the eye with faux greenery studded with acorns (#677526) and antler picks (#677470). Nostalgic lantern light fixtures (#616010) over the table echo smaller table lanterns (#677351, #677352) that house LED candles.

Christmas card holder.

Christmas Card Holder

Greens, Christmas ornaments, and cards -- even a gingerbread house -- bring a little Christmas to a hutch. Display Christmas cards in a ruggedly colorful fashion with a striking card holder made from boards, hardware, and string.

Painted wooden place mats.

Wooden Place Mats

Set a festive table with homemade place mats. Cut a board in two, paint the pieces, and add hardware. Make a matching napkin ring by spray-painting rope.
