Deck the Halls

-->
This past year my family room went through a major renovation. Furniture, colors, décor style and layout all changed. This left my Christmas Decorating up in the air since my first tree as a new family my tree has been decked in reds and gold. The decorations I have accumulated over the last 21 years are all traditional and worked with red and gold color scheme. Now my family room is a rustic modern space now with accents of teal and other shades of blue. The red and gold ornaments seemed too bright and lively for my calm relaxed room.

I found some great decorations for my rustic/ modern space, but if your struggling to match your Holiday Decorations with design style her are some tips:

Rustic: 
The Rustic style is appealing because it has a connection to the past. Because of the natural overtones, rustic rooms often feel like an extension of the outdoors. Rustic style has unpretentious roots, organic textures and shapes, warm colors. It blends really well with the industrial style, both using metal, wood and other natural elements.

Rustic décor items are really trending at the moment, so this is probably the easiest style to decorate for. For this design you want to highlight natural elements and themes. Burlap, evergreen clippings and pinecones are the perfect accents for all your decorating needs. The rustic theme works well with the traditional Christmas colors of red and green. The red truck delivering a Christmas tree is popular in décor this year.

Coastal: 
Inspired by the ocean, coastal style evokes a light and breezy feel. Coastal style blurs the lines between indoors and out. Plenty of light, light colors, pale neutrals and natural materials. Although it is tempting to grab every beach themed item out there, go with more simple pieces that evoke the feel of the beach without hitting people over the head.

Dreamy blues and whites are the perfect color to decorate your Christmas tree, accent with silver pieces to give it a little sparkle. And bonus starfish are the perfect shape for the season.

Traditional:
Traditional furnishings can hail from 18th century England, the French countryside or even India and the far east. From antique furnishings to floral fabrics, traditional style sometimes gets a bad rap as fussy and out dated. The design style is all about comfort and familiarity. This style is characterized by soft edges, rich wood finishes and mid tone color palette.

The traditional Christmas decorations follow the same rules, the rich reds and vibrant greens that are associated with Christmas blend well with this style. Wrought Iron lanterns make great centerpieces or outdoor decorations.
