In the grand entryway, the banisters are decorated with faux evergreen garland embellished with pretty bows and delicate acorn and snowflake ornaments. Whether store-bought or DIY, the cottage's holiday adornments offer a handmade feel that’s both whimsical and cozy.

The cottage’s clean, comfortable aesthetic and fresh, bright palette served as the jumping-off point for its laid-back natural holiday theme. Strings of felt acorns hung on reindeer stocking holders in the living room act as playful accents in lieu of stockings.

Designers Nicole Mah and Kelly Deck dressed the living room mantel with candles, tiny cypress trees and potted paperwhites (a classic holiday flower) set among loosely placed branches.
