2020 Holiday Decor Ideas for Your Luxury Mountain Home

With the holiday season just around the corner, it’s time to deck the halls and get the festivities underway –– and what better way to start than by decorating your luxury mountain home

From grand wreaths hanging on the doors to twinkling lights winding around the shiny ornaments perfectly placed on the tree, the options are endless when transforming your home into a winter wonderland. 

In this post, we take a closer look at eight trends you can use as inspiration to decorate your home for all the celebrations the season has in store for you and your family.

1. Choose a Color Scheme

While red and green may be the traditional color scheme of the season, why not mix things up and try a new color palette this year? One idea is to use Classic Blue, the Pantone color of the year, as the main color in your decor. Then, complement this rich, navy color with white, silver, or gold. If you prefer the traditional holiday colors, you may want to create interest by using varying tones of rich greens and deep reds and incorporate natural wood tones and other neutrals to balance the design. 

2. Consider a Theme 

The key to creating a unified look is to have a theme. While it can be based on color, you could also choose to decorate using candy canes, gingerbread men, snowmen, the NutCracker, buffalo check plaid, reindeers –– the list goes on. Simply pick your favorite and find ways to incorporate them into your decor. 

When you repeat the particular element you choose throughout your luxury mountain home, you will create a seamless transition from one room to the next. This trend can also be applied to your Christmas tree, giving it an elegant look that compliments the rest of your design. Simply choose one type or color ornament to decorate the entire tree and watch your vision come to life.  

3. Go Green! 

While green may be your color of choice for your design you can go completely green by using recycled and sustainable materials in your decor. One way is to wrap your gifts in recycled wrapping paper, burlap, or fabric. Or, decorate your wreaths using fresh pine cones, greenery, and berries found in the area around your home. Not only is this trend great for the environment, but using natural materials will also add a rustic mountain flair to your design.

Another way to spruce up your home in a sustainable way is to invest in quality decor that you can re-use year after year. Opt for elegant, timeless pieces that will stay in style years down the road. 

4. Use Vintage Holiday Decor

Staying in line with environmentally-friendly options, using vintage holiday pieces is a great way to decorate your luxury mountain home with nostalgic decor that brings back memories.  

So take a look around the pieces you have already and find your favorite ones to include in this year’s design. They make great statement pieces that are sure to spark conversation when you host your next holiday party. 

5. Think Classic Farmhouse

This year, the simple, classic style of a farmhouse design is one of the top decor trends for the holiday season. To achieve this rustic look, think of natural elements, such as reclaimed wood or galvanized metal. Then, add rich textures, classic plaid prints, fresh greenery, and berries as the finishing touches to your holiday farmhouse decor.

6. Create a Cozy Ambiance

As the temperatures start to drop, turn your luxury mountain home into a warm, cozy retreat where you can appreciate the beauty that surrounds your home, comfortably from the inside. 

One way to achieve this is by using candles throughout your home. Candles are a classic accessory to any design that can create a calming atmosphere, both visually and through their rich aromas. Choose warm, holiday scents such as pumpkin spice, winter cranberry, gingerbread, and fir to create a cozy ambiance in any room.  

Another way to make your home feel even cozier is to add extra throw blankets and pillows to your couches and side chairs. This small detail invites you to curl up on the couch with a good book as the wood crackles in the fireplace.   

7. Use Multiple Trees 

Why stop at one Christmas tree when you can have a multiple? By decorating a couple of trees throughout your mountain home, you will spread the holiday spirit to other rooms in your house. You can choose to decorate your trees with the same ornament to create a unified look or give each one a unique style for added interest. 

8. Get Creative

The most important thing to remember when decorating your luxury mountain house is to be creative! There are so many clever ways to dress up all of the rooms in your house to create a personalized design that accentuates your personal style.
