Rustic Country Christmas Living Room

A tour of our rustic country Christmas living room. Buffalo check curtains, neutral colors, thrifted finds, and woodsy farmhouse details fill our room with old-fashioned, vintage charm. Here is a look at our cozy, warm, and welcoming living room.

It is so hard to believe that we are in the middle of December. It often feels like it takes so long for the Christmas season to arrive and then shortly thereafter, it is all over.

The days are shorter, evening darkness comes more quickly and I love the cozy, warm feel of our home. The twinkle of Christmas lights, the glow of the rustic fireplace, the windows adorned with candles, and seeing our first snowflakes all means winter is here.

Holiday cheer abounds in our home as I started decorating before Thanksgiving this year. It always takes me some time to decorate as I add a little touch here and there.

The children and I have been baking holiday cookies in the oven, and making homemade ornaments to hang on the tree. It is a favorite time of the year for making memories as a family as we cherish these slow days together.

While I live in Missouri, my heart and mind long for the beauty of a rustic cozy cabin with mountains in the backdrop and evergreens covered in snow. I have always decorated our home in a more rustic style that is very simple but this year I added a few more touches that may sway a little more towards that cabin feel.

In our home this year, I decided to go with a rustic country theme that could be considered farmhouse and maybe even a bit primitive. I love a variety of styles but I kept the colors neutral, and filled our living room with cozy, rustic country pieces that will last for the winter.

Cozy and Warm Rustic Living Room

Our living room is a mix of thrifted and vintage finds. In the middle of the room, I layered an outdoor rug with a cowhide over the top. Our blanket trunk serves a dual purpose for holding blankets and as a coffee table.

The two wingback chairs are a find off the online marketplace. I brought them home, and deconstructed them. The vintage sideboard is a recent antique find from a local shop. The large media cabinet is also from the online marketplace and holds our computer along with all the other office supplies.

Cozy Rustic Country Living Room Christmas Style

A simple way to change the feel of the living room for a cozy rustic winter, is to change out the fabric curtains. During the warmer seasons of spring and summer, I use linen tablecloths as curtains.

I removed the linen fabric from the rods and added a cozy rustic feel with buffalo check fabric. I purchased the fabric and used curtain clips to hang the fabric without sewing them. Another option is to purchase handmade ready to hang buffalo check curtains.

In each of the windows throughout our home, I placed battery operated window candles. I love pulling into our drive at night and seeing the flicker welcoming feel of the lights.

During the cold days of winter, I keep warm throw blankets tucked into baskets, draped over the backs of our chairs and the arms of the couch. I have several 100% cotton throw blankets but my personal favorite is the warm, rustic look and feel of my plaid wool throw.

Our front door opens directly up to our living room leaving no space to have a lot of decorations. I used a large faux pine garland above the rustic black peg rack that holds my collection of vintage style hats.

To attach the garland to the wall, I used several medium size hooks for damage-free hanging.

Rustic Country Christmas Tree Decorations

The living room has two real trees this year. One is small and tucked into an old ice cream bucket. The other is tree is larger and tucked down inside of an old nail keg. In years past, I have used vintage country crocks to hold our Christmas trees.

To keep the trees fresh with water, I place buckets that will hold water into the container before placing the tree trunk down inside. I leave the branches on the bottom as this helps hold the tree in place. Then, I will use fabric tucked around the edge to help hide the bucket holding the water.

As for rustic country Christmas tree decorations, I keep it simple. I have no talent for decorating a Christmas tree, so I added some lights, and homemade icicle ornaments.

I also added some vintage country style silver mercury glass round ornaments. The ornaments came on a twine garland, but I cut them off and hung them individually.

Rustic Christmas Tree Topper

While shopping in Branson, I visited a shop called, 417 Vintage. I bought the reclaimed wooden tree topper stars for the top of the Christmas trees, and I just love them. They are simple, and rustic fitting my theme perfectly.

Instead of using a Christmas tree skirt, I opted to layer the tree on top of an authentic sheepskin pelt for the cozy rustic feel to fit my theme.

Tucked under the tree is a basket full of antlers that our family has collected over the years, and an old white stool with a basket. For the few gifts that we give, I wrapped them in paper with neutral colors and a rustic feel.

Our large media cabinet is adorned with a homemade wreath. Made with real pheasant feathers, wood slices and pinecones, it’s the perfect rustic woodsy wreath for our living room.
