Modern Farmhouse Holiday: Blending Tradition with Contemporary Style


As the holiday season approaches, Wine Country homes can embrace a unique blend of traditional charm and contemporary elegance. The modern farmhouse style, known for its warmth and simplicity, offers a perfect canvas for your holiday decor. Here’s how you can infuse this style into your festive decorations:


Embrace a Neutral Palette with Pops of Color

The modern farmhouse palette typically involves a lot of whites, creams, and natural wood tones. For the holidays, maintain this neutral base but add pops of classic holiday reds and greens. Think white tablecloths with red napkins, or a green wreath against a crisp, white door. For instance, a set of Mercer Merrow-Stitch Red Stripe Napkin from can add a festive touch to a white tablecloth.
