When thinking of iconic Christmas imagery a cosy log cabin complete with roaring fire, softly lit tree and fresh snow fall often springs to mind. This crisp, clean yet wonderfully warming look is what we’ve recreated in our Fir Lodge trend for this year’s Christmas season. Here’s how to add the incredibly cosy look to your own home. Woodland cabin not necessary.
Despite this trend conjuring all the cosy festive feelings, the colours of Fir Lodge are kept cool. Think shades found in nature this time of year. Crisp greys, pale greens and natural woods create a frosted feel reminiscent of wintry walks on frozen ground. These shades can be used across your Christmas scheme including tableware, ornaments and of course, Christmas tree decorations.
As the name Fir Lodge suggests, natural foliage is key for recreating this look in your home. Natural foliage doesn’t have to mean real, but if you’re going faux look for realistic designs. From Norway spruces, to snowy branches and pine needle garlands, using these natural elements as the foundation of your festive look will give you the best start.
Once you have your frosted hues and natural foliage in place, it’s time to really ramp up the rustic cabin feel. Bare woods, perfectly imperfect accessories and traditional elements will give your home the luxury lodge feel many of us are searching for at Christmas. Scatter these features sparingly across your different Christmas displays from the table top to the tree and you’ll be transported to your own personal ski lodge in no time.
Add Some Warmth
The final finishing touch to the Fir Lodge trend is the lighting. If you’re lucky enough to have a fireplace or log burner then you’re already halfway there. If not, just make sure you max out the lighting to achieve the fabulously cosy feel at the heart of this look. Make sure your tree is well-lit, candles are burning as soon as the sun goes down and you have a few extra special festive lights dotted around your decorations to bring the Fir Lodge trend together.
