What’s Your Christmas Decorating Style?

This holiday season on coco+kelley has seen quite a variety of ideas for styling your own home – from non-traditional color palettes and mantels , to avant garde bar scenes and classic winter bedding. A little bit of something for everyone, which is what we like to do around here to keep you on your toes!

But, as we were putting up the tree this year, I realized that now that I’ve moved into my boyfriend’s house and acquired all of his Christmas decor along with mine, that it might be time to reassess my own holiday style.

Just like we’ve had to do with the rest of the house, I have a feeling this will mean a little bit of compromise on my part, but I’m actually a bit excited to start with a clean slate. I think my tastes have changed quite a bit since I’ve acquired most of my holiday ornaments and decor. This year I’m feeling a bit more traditional…

I’m looking for fresh and minimal, with a *hint* of glamour (after all, a girl can’t change completely!) Classic and simple with a bit of quirk. I even like a little rustic farmhouse thrown in for good measure.

I think we’ll call it Modern Country.how-to-style-a-modern-country-christmas-via-coco-kelley

Really, we’re not very ‘country’ when it comes to decorating our house, and I kind of wish we had a bit more of it, so here’s my chance to add some rustic elements. As always, with my own twist.

What’s your holiday style? Do you find yourself changing it up every year, or sticking with your traditional style year after year?
