A Very Mountain Home Christmas

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.

For sources, please visit out original posts on the home:  great room/kitchen/diningmaster suite/office/mudroom/powderkids' rooms, and guest wing.

Our favorite front door look these days is layering a doormat with an indoor/outdoor rug

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 brass Scribble in Gold decorative object stands out against the thick green garland (from here, but they have since sold out). The vintage wood skis gives the home a ski lodge feel.

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.

We can't help but put Murchison soap in almost every project! It's classic design alludes to vintage apothecary designs. Plus, it smells amazing. We love to throw in a good dishtowel with a classic pattern for equal parts function and decor.

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!

The Masinissa Rug is a go to for any cozy mountain space. It has a natural pattern that really pulls the room together and it's ridiculously soft. We used rattan trays as storage and to bring in more natural texture.

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.

A modern build and hand crafted details make this table lamp a Studio McGee favorite. We especially love it paired with this nightstand. We swapped out the everyday pillow covers for  emerald velvet pillows and paired them with a buffalo check throw.

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.
