8 Holiday Decor Trends for Your Luxury Mountain Home

2022 Holiday Decor Ideas for Your Luxury Mountain Home

The holiday season is just around the corner — and what better way to get the festivities underway than by decorating your luxury mountain home? The possibilities are endless when it comes to turning your home into a winter wonderland, from grand wreaths strategically placed on the door to twinkling lights encircling the ornaments carefully positioned on the tree. 

Here are eight trends you can use as inspiration for decorating your luxury mountain home for all the celebrations your family and friends will be having this season.

1. Choose a Color Scheme

Red and green may be the traditional holiday colors, but why not experiment with a new palette this year? One concept is to use Very Peri, the Pantone color of the year, as the primary color in your decor. You can then accent this shade of pastel purple with white, silver, or gold. 

Alternatively, if you prefer traditional holiday colors, you might want to incorporate varying tones of mint and muted greens, as well as natural wood tones and other neutrals. With these color palette options, you can bring your luxury mountain home to a whole new level this holiday season.

2. Consider a Theme 

The key to creating a unified look is to have a theme. While it can be based on color, you could also choose to decorate using various holiday knickknacks such as gingerbread men, the Nutcracker, reindeer, and more. You can even select your favorite holiday ornament and incorporate them into your decor. 

To bring your style up a notch, distribute a particular element throughout your entire luxury mountain home to create a seamless transition from one room to the next. Apply a theme to your Christmas tree to give it an elegant look that compliments the rest of your design. Dress up your tree and watch your vision come to life!

3. Go Green! 

Green may be your color of choice for your design, but why not go completely green by incorporating recycled and sustainable materials into your decor? One way to take your gift wrapping to the next level is to use recycled wrapping paper, burlap, or any other fabric. You can even decorate your wreaths using fresh pine cones or greenery that you’ve scavenged from the area around your home. This trend works wonderfully for the environment, but also brings a bit of rustic mountain flair to your home by incorporating natural materials.

One of the most common ways to add sustainability to your design is by investing in decor that can serve your family in a multitude of ways for many years to come. Choose classic pieces that are sure to remain in style over time.

4. Use Vintage Holiday Decor

Vintage holiday pieces not only serve as a sustainable decor option, but they are sure to bring a taste of nostalgia to your luxury mountain home. Go ahead and take a look at some ornate pieces you already have and select your favorites to incorporate into your design. Not only do they serve as excellent statement pieces, but they’re also sure to spark interesting conversations at your next holiday party!

5. Think Classic Farmhouse

The holiday season is full of farmhouse design variations. Reclaimed wood, galvanized metal, and natural elements are the pinnacle of this rustic look. Rich textures, like greenery, plaid, and fresh berries, will add depth to your luxury mountain home’s design for a stylish holiday season.

6. Create a Cozy Ambiance

Once the temperature begins to drop, grab your favorite throw and get comfy. There’s nothing like turning your mountain home into a luxury retreat during the holidays. One way to set the tone is by distributing candles throughout your home. Candles make for a classic holiday accessory and come in both wax and battery-operated form. Add a healthy mix of both to your design to really capture the holiday’s warmth, while also spreading the aromas of the season throughout your home. A few of the top fragrances include pumpkin spice, winter cranberry, gingerbread, and cinnamon apple. These smells will add a great ambiance to any room.

To add an extra layer of cozy, don’t stop at one throw, but add a few along with pillows to your couches and side chairs. This is inviting and creates the perfect setting for curling up on the couch in front of the fireplace with a good book.  

7. Use Multiple Trees 

Adding multiples isn’t limited to cozy accessories. Why not add multiple trees? Not only will this spread holiday cheer to other rooms in your house, but it can also bring consciousness to the design of your luxury mountain home. 

You can decorate each of your trees with the same style and theme, or add more flair by decorating them individually. However you choose to move forward with the design, the multiple trees will be sure to add unique style and interest.

8. Get Creative

The key to decorating your luxury mountain home is to use your creativity! There are so many options and avenues for you to bring your own unique style and flair to each room in your house. Step outside the box and accentuate your personality throughout your home with unconventional pallets, textures, and more!
