I’m All About That Texture
Rustic style decorating is achieved, mostly in part, to the heavy use of texture, natural materials and neutral hues. Burlap and twine instead of ribbon for the tree, or cozy fur throws and pillows for the seating areas will create a cozy interior. Don’t be afraid to mix textures in a room, get creative and think outside the box!
Take advantage of living in one of the most beautiful outdoor spots in America. Denver is just minutes, literally, from an abundance of natural resources! Take a hike and collect pinecones for a pine cone wreath. On your walk, gather boughs from evergreens to make a wreath or to hang over the mantle. White pine, spruce, juniper, boxwood and cedar all add gorgeous elements to your home, whether draped behind a mirror or ontop a console table. Dead, broken branches can be placed in vases and draped with lights, use whatever strikes your eye as beautiful!
Think Switzerland, neutral on all borders. This is your new mantra in creating a refined rustic Christmas style. Stay with neutrals, or go with a monochromatic color scheme. For instance, for a tree, you could go with red ornaments, a combination of matte and shiny, with variations of brown pinecones. For a bit of glamour, you can add silver, bronze, gold or brass for sparkle.
Homemade is Best
Don’t be afraid to display the kid’s crafts they bring home from school. The effect of homemade items bring such originality with your own unique flair. This is why a lot of the major retail stores offer ‘homemade’ looking ornaments! Tree ornaments made from rolled magazine pages, or pieces of felt stitched together in the shape of a Christmas character are just a few. Get creative and keep those ‘little projects’. Who knows, they may be your favorite ones yet, rivaling even the most expensive designer retail shops!
