There’s nothing quite like holiday décor, and we are absolutely delighted to share a special home with you today! We recently sat down with home stylist Michelle from @modernfarmfam to find out more about her holiday style, beautiful home, traditions and of course her stunning Mohawk floors.
Michelle, we recently discovered your gorgeous home through Instagram and can’t get enough of your interior décor and holiday style! When do you typically start decorating for the holidays, and how would you describe your style?
Because I enjoy seeing my decor displayed for as long as possible, I typically start decorating on November 1st. We built our home in 2019, and my dreams of owning a Modern Farmhouse came true. My home is a great combination of modern farmhouse style with a little rustic and boho touch here and there.
We love that every room in your home has a touch of holiday. Does your family help you decorate, or do they leave it to the expert?
Everyone enjoys decorating the house for Christmas, but the design and final touches are really for me. 🙂 I may or may not decorate and re-decorate a few times before I finally see the look I desired from the start.
While most of your holiday decoration ideas may come from you, everyone has a source for inspiration! Do you have anyone you look up to creatively for home or holiday decor?
Decorating has always been something I look forward to, and I think it is because my grandmother always made every holiday so special with her own magical touches to her home. I want our children and their children to remember our home and know how important it is to care for something you work so hard to achieve. I believe my home is an extension of me and a reflection of my character.
You built your amazing dream home in 2019. Do you have any new holiday traditions here or any special old traditions that you carried over?
When we built our home we basically started over with all new decor except for our traditional, family Christmas tree. That tree has an ornament from every grandparent, parent, former trees, kindergarten projects, pets that have gained their wings and so much more! The family tree may not be our prettiest tree, but it holds the most memories with beauty above any decor we could buy.
And of course, we have to ask about those Mohawk floors. Did you have a certain color scheme in mind when picking out your floors? What did you end up choosing?
I have been planning this house in my mind for a very long time, and colors that stand the test of time were top of my list. I wanted flooring that would outlast any of the feet that stepped through that doorway. My Mohawk flooring in Driftwood Oak is a dream come true! The color, style and texture is perfectly paired with our Modern Farmhouse style! The compliments we continue to receive on this flooring are unbelievable.
Let’s cap off our interview with a quick game of THIS or THAT: Holiday Edition!
Real tree or faux tree? Faux for me! 🎄
Eggnog or hot cocoa? ☕️ Hot Cocoa 💯
Secret Santa 🎅 or White Elephant? White Elephant 🐘
Wrapping presents or sending holiday cards? Wrapping presents 🎁 (I am the WORST at cards 😆)
Michelle, thanks for spending some time with us on the blog today, and we can’t wait to see what’s in store for you and your home in 2021!
