The chalet style is very cozy, it’s about a rustic decor with a touch of mountain and forest – a bit wild, a bit rough and very inviting, maybe that’s why this style is so popular today. If you want to bring it into your home, start in the bedroom, the room that sets your mood for the day you wake up. Here are some design tips and ideas.
Styles, materials and colors
A chalet room requires a touch of rustic style, but you can use another style as a base. It can be vintage, modern, minimalist, Scandinavian, or any other, or you can just keep it rustic. What you really need is a right combination of materials that Chalet screams: wood, stone, faux fur, and maybe brick and faux leather – these materials are exactly what you need here. Do you think of colors? In chalet rooms, it is mainly natural colors, earthy colors such as rust, brown, gray, green and neutrals. Of course, for a drama or any other shade that suits the style you choose, you can add black.
Furniture and decor
Rock a large stone fireplace or a built-in one to create a mood. Opt for comfortable upholstered furniture and, of course, comfortable bed linen, including faux fur items. The same goes for carpets. Hang up some candle lanterns and fancy chandeliers to light up the room. Use ancient antlers to decorate the walls or create a gallery wall inspired by mountains. Go for a large window or glazed wall and make a cozy window sill with lots of pillows and faux fur. Enjoy!
The rustic style is very popular for decorating cozy family celebrations and especially for Christmas. Decorate your Christmas party in a rustic style: add pine cones, evergreen plants, berries and wooden discs to give your home a cozy and comfortable touch.
Rustic Christmas centerpieces and table runners
Center pieces and table runners form the table landscape. Choose them or design them with special attention to detail. With table runners, you can try evergreen branches, real or artificial, pine cones, candles, berries and maybe add ornaments. If you live in a southern region, why not create a eucalyptus table runner? Centerpieces can be different: a bold piece of wood or a wooden board, a basket or a wooden disc with something really rustic: pine cones, evergreen plants, ornaments, berries, tangerines, nuts and artificial snow. Grow some onions, cover with moss and pine cones, add candle lanterns for a cozy touch. Put candles everywhere to make the table setting more intimate.
Rustic Christmas table settings
Create each place setting with wooden discs or bark instead of placemats, add pine cones as card holders, and decorate the place setting with berries and mini wreaths. Napkins can be covered with cinnamon sticks and pine cones, with evergreen plants and ornaments. To make it even more cozy, you can use checkered napkins or placemats.
