Rustic Decorating for the Holidays | Prescott, AZ

We’re back with more tips on how you can incorporate reclaimed wood into your décor. This time, we are talking about the ways you can get in the rustic holiday spirit with pieces for your home and office! The holidays bring family together, and joy to our homes. This year, bring the warmth and character of reclaimed wood and rustic accents into your holiday décor. With so many ways to incorporate reclaimed wood, we have some favorites to share!

Idea 1: New Spin on the Christmas Star

Have the tried-and-true angel topper or gold star gotten a little old? If you are looking for a way to incorporate a rustic feel to your décor, ornaments are a great way to spice things up. Adding a bit of warmth and intrigue, a copper or rust colored metal star at the top and similar ornaments throughout will bring it all together!

Idea 2: Reclaimed Wood Accents

Get your friends and family into the holiday spirit by incorporating the texture of reclaimed wood this year! Reclaimed wood can be used to create focal points around a room. Maybe you paint stacked layers to resemble Santa Clause by the fireplace or prop a modern tree decoration on the serving table. Little touches like these will give your décor that “lived in” feel.

Idea 3: Focal Points

Bunching a handful of pieces in a space can create a festive focal point. Try stacking chunky wood pieces in the fireplace, or tiered décor in a corner to brighten up a smaller space. Candlelight, wood accents and contrasting tones make for an eye-catching addition to your home!

When you unpack those holiday boxes this year, think about how you can switch up! Maybe ornaments get hung along the fireplace or some faux presents and reindeer create a dazzling entry way! This year, we are loving cabin shabby-chic décor and think you will too!

What Is A Rustic Decorating Style? | Prescott, AZ

What comes to mind when you think of a “rustic interior”? Does it make you think of animal hides and stone walls? Soft lighting and bold wood accents maybe? When I think “rustic”, three words come to mind: texture, earth & warmth. The idea of a rustic interior has evolved from cowboy and gritty to cozy and grounded. There are a ton of ways to bring the outdoors, in – here are a few of our favorites!


A modern take on this style typically includes white or light color shades mixed with grays, blacks, and wood accents. Think of clean lines, centerpiece stone fireplace, large animal hide rug and reclaimed wood floors. In terms of modern rustic, the colors are subdued while making an impact and every cozy touch counts!

            Indoor/ Outdoor

If you already live in a setting that is rugged, playing around with furniture, lighting and ways to be cozy can blur the line between home and nature. An accent wall against a window that soaks in the view, or a great patio ready to embrace you takes rustic to the next level. Warm lighting and deep wood colors work to highlight your surrounds.

            Bold Accents

Wood beam ceilings, chunky furniture, stone, and fun use of color can really make your interior stand out among the rest. Mixing in navy blue cabinetry to an otherwise nature-inspired palette can enhance the warmth of a space. Another idea is to add a staggered or chunky stone accent wall or fireplace to your space. It will keep the room interesting without being cluttered.

            Neutral Naturals

Natural textures and tones with a neutral palette are another way to go about your rustic transition. A cow hide rug or chairs situated around a bold wood coffee table and maybe a deep leather couch is the living room I imagine when considering “neural naturals”. This style keeps things rich and interesting with a play on texture while staying aesthetically appealing.
