A Cozy-Cabin Christmas Display

Next up in the way of the Christmas decorating going on around here is this display I created in the kitchen.  I had so much fun adding all the little details to it...I could have kept tweaking and tweaking but at some point you have to say "done" and move on...at least for now ;)




This vignette has a bit of  a rustic cabin feel to it which is a look I love.



Inspiration for the design began with this fellow (and his mate) - a Christmas present from my son last year.

He was paired with the rustic-ness of birch and the coziness of plaid to give the display a lodge-inspired style.

Below, you can see how I set a tray on top of a small decorative suitcase.

Then I added red and green items on the tray - all things I've collected over the years, mostly from local gift stores.

The colours speak of Christmas and the decorative elements make one think of coming indoors to warm up after playing out in the snow.



Faux fur is perfect for a rustic design. I've had the Merry Christmas moose pillow for ages and you'll notice its appearance around here a lot! 



Below the table are some other decor items.

Mr. Delight made these birch candleholders for me a few years back.  I've placed pine cones on them this time.

A pail of freshly gathered pine cones adds to the look.

Some festive pillows rest on a faux fur in a basket.



My sister made this pillow for me out of a single (Walmart) placemat by opening it up and adding a zipper. She's the talented seamstress in the family!

I love the soft glow in this area of the kitchen at night.

Hope you enjoyed seeing the decorating I've done in this area of my home.

Hi Lori! Oh my, absolutely fabulous. The little suitcase is a terrific idea. And don't even get me started on the plaid, lol. Perfect from start to finish. Jane

What a lovely cozy cabin Christmas vignette. I love the mix of patterns and textures, especially the use of plaid. The warm white lights truly is very welcoming. The Christmas print pillows are a wonderful contrast next to the fur pillows. I feel like I am in the northwoods.

Beautiful vignettes, I enjoyed all the textures and layers. A feast for the eyes, very very pretty.

Very fun, I love the simplicity of the greens and naturals with your dishes. It's all about warmth and familiarity. We are comfortable with the red/green holiday and mixed with the antiques and even the new white decor...it just is so homey and comforting. Have a Happy Thanksgiving, and thanks for the traditional ideas! Sandi

This is right up my alley. I have just been decking my family room and kitchen in cabin/plaid décor. I love the rustic look as well. Wishing I had some of those deer. :) I also have a bucket filled with pinecones. Kindred hearts, I think. Love the pillow your sis made! It's all so warm and cozy! Thanks for sharing it with SYC.
hugs,
Jann
