BURLAP IS BIG: The rustic material is hot this holiday season.
Update burlap for Holiday 2013 with a Barn to Mansion look. The Barn to Mansion look provides the perfect opportunity to introduce some of this season’s hot trends, burlap and owls, into a more modern decor.
Here we created a Barn to Mansion inspired Holiday “Milk & Cookies” Bar. Using a modern dining room buffet as the foundation (we cleared everything but the crystal lamps), we ran a burlap table runner down the center of the buffet, anchoring it with burlap Christmas trees. To build upon these “barn basics” we incorporated items from the outdoors: our token snowy owl, holly, pine cones and mini evergreen trees (note the evergreen trees are dressed with fur – the perfect Barn to Mansion combo!) To play up the Mansion component of the look, we pulled in chic dining chairs upholstered in black velvet with a metallic finish to flank the buffet and used fun luxury items, white mongolian pillows and a red cashmere throw, to further enhance the mansion look. To make our festive display functional and fun we made room for homemade chocolate chip cookies and milk with a side of red string licorice candy!
