Exactly one year ago, I was 8 days away from having a baby and we were installing our Modern Mountain Home project! Surrounded by Aspens high in the Rocky Mountains, it is located in the most picturesque winter setting. Earlier this week, we found out that Architectural Digest named it among their top interiors that inspired them in 2016!!! Luckily for us, we were able to revisit the home and spruce it up (literally, we used a lot of greenery) for the holidays.
We designed the home to feel modern, yet comfy and cozy. A traditional Christmas color palette with lots of greenery was the perfect fit - I love that in the mountain setting, it feels like we brought the best of the outdoors inside.
The Goodman Pendants look amazing all year long, but the golden interior makes them extra special with the holiday styling.
We used food to add decor in the kitchen. Pomegranates for color, and a simple gingerbread house for a Christmas touch.
We love wall sconces for open shelving and took advantage of the display by adding fresh greenery.
We stored treats in our clear Reed Canisters so you enjoying seeing and snacking on them. I'm not going to lie, we definitely ate a few TJ's Peppermint Pretzel Thins while decking the halls. Use these adorable little salt and pepper pinch bowls to pinch the perfect amount of seasoning as you cook. Classic mugs with a red rim are perfect for Christmas decor because they add a subtle touch of holiday color while remaining versatile for the rest of the year.
Details are everything when decorating for the holidays! These iron zinc houses are rustic and add vintage flair to your displays. We can't get enough of them!
These stockings are hand sewn from vintage fabric with the coolest windowpane plaid - a perfect blend of modern and traditional.
The Wood Sage and Cardamon scent invites all the delicious, fresh scents of the outdoors inside the home. Plus, the gold label is pretty killer.
We took every little chance to embellish the home with greenery. It looks especially good on raw, natural furniture.
We used a red berry garland to liven up the space and bring in a red accent. The organic shape of the garland is beautiful.
We made a minimal staircase a bit more whimsical by hanging garlands with bows.
Looking at this hallway will never get old! Each window is adorned with a simple juniper wreath - I love the look of simple things made grand through repitition.
With a minimal home, a small detail like this little tree (from PB, but they sold out) adds lots of winter charm to the hearth. This floor lamp works with every chair out there, trust us.
