As we approach the holiday season there is a yearning to make our homes reflect a warm & welcoming feel. To embrace the past and bring in a personal touch. The vertical space in our homes is a valuable area and can be completely customized to signify your style. Since anything farmhouse related seems to be a hot trend right now, the holidays are the perfect time to jump in on this design craze.
Lets start with a traditional favorite, the wreath. But what about some outside the box ideas? Your walls can suggest “the holidays” in a subtle way through cozy details, texture and a connection to nature. Here are my favorite farmhouse holiday wall trends….
The chalkboard is still a beloved wall choice amongst farmhouse enthusiasts. Some things to love about it, the flexibility to interchange the message and art, the more it is used the better it looks and they are easy to make. You can customize the size and frame to suit your needs.
Textile art has become a hot trend and fits right in with the farmhouse aesthetic. There are many interpretations of this art form as well a variety of talented artists who sell on sites like Etsy. Or if DIY is more your style, then you can make one yourself. The texture brings a cozy layer to your walls and home, perfect for the holiday season.
Along with the wreath, a mirror is always a good choice to highlight a mantle, wall or vignette. Let it bring a cohesive quality to your space by keeping with your personal style. Repeating wood tones, paint and texture is a great way to balance a space.
Taxidermy and antlers, whether faux or the real thing, it can bring an organic touch to your space. The best part, you don’t have to overdo it, often with natural elements less in more, unless it is a collection.
Over the last few years we have seen first hand the popularity of word art. Currently I am seeing a transition to a more urban look with signs, along with an authentic handmade quality. This farmhouse trend works best when not overused.
Architectural details such as vintage windows, doors, corbels, moldings and drawers make great wall art. Layering in festive touches can alter the look and still keep the look classic.
Open shelving is a consistent trend with most styles these days. Adding a sleeker, more modern look can complement a rustic look and bring a nice contrast. The fun begins when you layer in your accessories, which can be tailored with each new season and showcase your individual taste.
My personal favorite, woven baskets and trays. Hanging an accessory with a warm texture and unique shape can be an unexpected delight. Fresh greenery can add to the natural beauty and make it most festive.
