Country Christmas living room designs

18 images

Christmas is the time of year we love to bring the outside in. Fragrant pine trees are decorated with twinkling fairy lights and placed in the corner of living rooms and the halls are decked with boughs of holly.

If you want to achieve a cosy, country Christmas living room this year, opt for rustic finishes layered with festive sprigs and snuggly soft furnishings such as woollen throws and tartan cushions. Keep the fireplace stocked up with logs for a continuous warm glow that will make your space comforting, sociable and perfect for country-style entertaining with close friends and family.

If you have a neutral living room scheme, brighten it up with festive colours and create a Scandi-style theme by opting for a large pine tree laden with red and white decorations. Dress the mantelpiece with garlands of glossy green holly, scarlet berries and pine cones, and place a large, wooden vintage-style trunk in the centre of a thick woven rug for a makeshift coffee table and storage for cosy throws and blankets.

Be inspired by the Highlands for this year’s country Christmas living room look and transform your space into a festive winter cabin with statement pieces like a tartan wing chair, a shaggy sheepskin rug and a single cushion embroidered with a Highland cattle motif.
