Elle Decor recently featured this beautiful Montana home, or excuse me, “guesthouse”. I do believe it’s what Christmas dreams are made of. Living in Florida, I’ve always dreamed of celebrating Christmas in a snowy rustic mountain lodge, resplendent with a huge fireplace and equally large windows overlooking the snow and mountains. This home checks all those boxes! I won’t be celebrating Christmas out west this year, but one day, one day… For now, here are some pieces to help emulate that cozy, rustic, and, um, expensive look and feel in your own lodge. Make sure to check out the rest of the home, too. The dining room chairs are incredible.
- Light – Let’s start off with those lights! How gorgeous are the Moooi lights in the photo? And they should be for over $3,000. If you’re one of those crafty sorts, there are DIY instructions available to make your own. If you are neither rich nor crafty (holla!), here is a nice globe chandelier to emulate the look. I actually have one very similar to this hanging in my dining room.
- Print – For those of us who don’t have snowy mountains and cedar trees outside our windows.
- Side table – The branch legs on this table are totally fitting for this setting.
- Coffee table – I am loving the low profile of this coffee table. Here’s a cheaper version.
- Blanket – A warm fuzzy blanket for cozying up in as you watch the snow fall outside and listen to the fire roar. *sigh*
- Chair – The camel club chairs in the lodge are to. die. for. Here is a less expensive version.
- Wood ball – Those large wood balls by the fire place are so fun. Just don’t accidentally kick them into the fire.
- Stool – Fur stool to amp up the cozy factor (is that possible? necessary?).
- Antler – This is perfect decor for a mountain lodge coffee table. Also perfect if you won’t have a deer head to hang on your wall.
- Pillow – Bringing a little pattern into the texture-heavy mix.
I fell down a club chair rabbit hole as I was searching for similar styles to the originals. Here are a few others to inspire:
