Can Holiday Decorations Be Rustic?

You don’t have to be an expert interior designer to hear the term “rustic” and immediately think of log cabins, a weathered look that says something has been around for ages, and colors that are approachable, relaxed, calming, earthy, and traditional. Rustic is easily one of the more recognizable design trends today, and everyone wants to recreate that perfect look in their country home— no matter what time of year we’re talking about!

Naturally, this begs the question: Can holiday decorations be rustic, too?

In a word — Absolutely! And the best part is achieving that rustic holiday look doesn’t have to be expensive. 

Simple ways to create a rustic holiday look

Too many people get caught up in the traditional aspect of the holidays. Take Christmas, for example. Why is it that you “have to have” a gigantic Christmas tree with multi-colored lights, silver garland wrapped end-over-end down the spiral staircase, gingerbread men and reindeer, red and green stockings, and a blow-up Santa Claus in the front yard?

Those are all incredible decorations, and just thinking about them floods the mind with unforgettable childhood memories. But keeping those time-honored traditions alive and well doesn’t mean you can’t experiment with some country flair.

Here are just a few natural colors and textures that quickly give your home a rustic holiday makeover:

  • Mason jar crafts
  • Decorative pinecones for wreaths and baskets
  • Burlap, twine, and rope
  • Clear, white bulbs for holiday lighting
  • Plaid stockings
  • Trees and leaves for a nature-inspired staircase
  • Non-straight lines
  • Rustic signs and accent pieces

Once you go rustic for the holidays, get the windmill ceiling fan to match.

Once you have the perfect rustic design for your space, the last thing you want is for the ceiling fan(s) not to match. Unfortunately, most fans on store shelves aren’t going to match whatever look you’re going for at home. This is where The Original Windmill Ceiling Fan Company can help. Rustic designs are some of the top finishes our customers ask about when customizing the perfect windmill fan. And the possibilities are literally endless.

Imagine a windmill ceiling fan that checks all of these boxes:

  • Personable and unique — no two fans are alike
  • Match fixtures and furniture with ease
  • Designed to fit the size and space of your home
  • Unrivaled strength and quality craftsmanship — Not only do you have control over the design of the fan but there is more attention to detail in both the manufacturing of the fan and the assembly.
  • Assembled in Texas
