Rustic adds natural warmth to your decor, tones down a modern theme and helps everyone reconnect with the past. Subtle and earth like colors should guide your rustic theme; the color of wood,the texture from a tree bark…all the colors/textures nature likes to paint with. Think rough-hewn beams or patina surfaces which bring out some old age in your decor.

It’s also known as the English rural style and the main secret is to make your interior look anonymous with lots of different decorative items; most of them old fashioned. Place large portraits of your family on the walls, muted stripes on the drapes, a little bit of checks on the cushion covers and some lively chintz for the upholstery. Mix different colors together and make sure they all marry to form one abstract theme.

Glamour equals lots of sparkles like a scene from a fairy-tale story. Cover the living room with glittery wallpaper, use sparkly vintage ornaments in random places and a shiny silver plate with golden eggs on the living room table. Add fluffy Christmas teddy bears by the fireplaces and cups of candy canes on shelves.

Not spending Christmas by the beach doesn’t mean you can’t bring that coastal feel to your home. Add a string of polished oyster shells on your fireplace or a huge coral shell filled with marbles on your living room table. Add some sea urchins to your tree and warm up the dining table with shelled candles. Throw in some more painted shells in random places to fully elevate that coastal feel to your home.

You can also call it the DIY Christmas decor. Make your dining area pop with silver bulbs hanging off chairs and ribbon-laced napkins under the dining cutlery. Then you need natural tree branches and lots of them; a small pot of rosemary on the living room table, bits of fresh leaves hanging off Christmas trees or the fireplace. Use hand painted gift wraps for presents or add hand drawn geisha girl portraits on walls. Another amazing low budget idea to try out.
