Fash­ion a Farm­house Wonderland

Country Sampler Holiday Homes December 2018 - - Festive Homes -

Ju­lia Wood has cre­ated a dis­tinc­tive style in her Cal­i­for­nia home. Here are her tips for get­ting a sim­i­lar look with your hol­i­day dec­o­rat­ing:

DON’T BE AFRAID TO MIX AND MATCH

Com­bine fam­ily trea­sures with thrifted and re­pur­posed finds, hand­crafted ar­ti­san wares and new must-haves—your per­sonal style will pre­sent it­self in no time.

A CAN OF WHITE SPRAY PAINT GOES A LONG WAY

“If you’re done with your col­or­ful decor, you can paint any­thing white to give it that farm­house Christ­mas feel with­out hav­ing to go out and buy all new stuff,” Ju­lia says. “White spray paint can trans­form any­thing.”

BE PA­TIENT AMASSING YOUR DECOR

Your hol­i­day col­lec­tion won’t—and shouldn’t— hap­pen all at once. “It’s years and years of gifted or­na­ments and seek­ing out those things you know will make your house feel like Christ­mas.”
