Over the next couple of days, I am going to focus on getting your house decked out for the holidays, no matter what your style. Today, I am highlighting the best items I’ve seen to decorate in a rustic style, and over the next few days, I will cover the best items for a traditional, glamorous or retro holiday home!
Pier I Imports Gilded Forest Collection, $2.95-30: Woodsy with a little bit of glam, this gorgeous collection includes white cable knit stockings trimmed in fur, rough-hewn reindeer votive holders and gorgeous forest themed ornaments.
Sommelier Santa, $148: Karen Didion’s old-world Santa is a gracious guest, bringing bottles of wine and a warm smile.
Angelic Votive Holder Set, $36: These weathered verdigris iron votives look authentically old and lovely.
Highland Tidings Collection, from $6.75: This grey flannel and plaid collection is regal and rustic at the same time, and makes a great gift for a family with Scottish ancestry.
Felt Gingerbread House Set, $96.75: These charming felted wool accessories add a homespun whimsy to your holiday decor.
Tree Light Candleholder, $89: My friend Kari picked up a tree similar to this at an antiques market, and she lent it to me for my Christmas party. I love it so much that I might have to buy this one for myself!
Jalisco Jingle Bells, $39: I might buy these for Christmas and keep them up year round. They are gorgeous and so unusual! I also love these vintage bells by the pound, $39.
Pinecone, Fire Log and Indian Corn Candles, $17.95-62.95: These beautiful candles bring a natural, woodsy element to your holiday table.
Twelve Days Holiday Wall Plaque, $119: This colorful plaque is framed in antiqued gold metal, adding a whimsical touch to your decor.
Snowflake Tree Trio, $34.98: These painted metal Christmas trees are rustic with a big dose of fun.
Wooden Christmas Carousel with Candles, $19.98: My uncle bought Swedish angel chimes as a gift for me when I was very little, and I still remember how magical I thought it was, with the heat from the candles making the angels go round. This handsome wooden version captures the same magic on a grander scale.
Curled Wood Decor, $9-24: These unique pieces are made of curled bits of wood, and are natural and dramatic at the same time. I have the tree and the small wreath, and I’m going to add a couple of more pieces to my collection.
Metal Decor from At West End: I just discovered this catalog, and I am now obsessed. There are so many stunning items in one place, all in the weathered, rustic vein, that I now want to completely redecorate! Many of the pieces are crafted of metal and painted to look aged. I especially love these ingenious “rustic tin candle wings”, that turn an ordinary pillar into a conversation piece, the winter skates, the santa votive holders, and the rustic iron Christmas tree bell. Plus they are made of recycled metal!
Wood Decor from At West End: Sense a theme here? Well, there’s one more coming. Reclaimed wood is fashioned into stunning holiday decor, including a Santa birdhouse, the candystriped word JOY, praying angels, a sleeping santa door hanging, and my favorites, these adorable striped hugging angels.
Felt Holiday Decor from At West End: This is it, I promise! I adore these folksy pieces, including the santas (from plaid santas to curly hat santa wine toppers to the jolly fat santas), the layered trees, the snowmen and the sheep.

I loved your nativity scene behind your couch. It was beautiful and “rustic”!
I just purchased a larger version of this burlap tree skirt from etsy…
