Utah mountain retreat gets a fabulous Christmas makeover for the holidays

holiday-home-decoration-exterior

This modern mountain retreat has been given an incredible Christmas makeover by Studio McGee, located in the luxury community of Wolf Creek Ranch, outside of Park City, Utah. Approaching the front door, the designer applied a layered look with a doormat overtop of an indoor/outdoor rug. The doormat is from Terrain. Plenty of greenery adorns the front door, welcoming guests inside. This includes garland and wreaths with bells tied on with ribbon. Christmas trees in concrete planters flank either side of the entry.

For this Christmas makeover, the designer wanted to create a look inside this home that is modern, yet warm and cozy. She used a traditional Christmas color palette, loaded with plenty of greenery. The inspiration was drawn from the tranquil mountain setting that surrounds this home, bringing the outdoors in.

What We Love: This gorgeous mountain home showcases a Christmas makeover that has been tastefully decorated to make guests feel welcome. There is just enough Christmas feeling in this home that makes it perfectly in keeping with the overall design aesthetic. We are especially loving all of the greenery, the charming stockings above the fireplace, and those iron zinc houses on the living room console table!

Tell Us: What do you think of the Christmas decor that Studio McGee has used in this home? Do you think she was successful in creating a feeling of inviting warmth into a minimal home? Please share your thoughts in the Comments!

Note: We have featured this same home tour in the past here on One Kindesign when it was first built and without the Christmas decor. You can see this here: Breathtaking modern mountain home in Utah with luxe details.

Above: The open shelves are decorated with fresh greenery. Christmas treats such as the Trader Joe’s Peppermint Pretzels are stored in clear glass canisters. Adding a subtle hint of Christmas color to the shelves is the mugs with a red rim, which can be used for coffee, cocoa, and hot cider.

OneKindesign, I usually love your choices in homes to present. I’ll admit at the outset that my taste leans a little more toward the traditional than to the modern but this one just made me have to comment! I can’t imagine a colder, more uninviting space. Welcoming? Not in the least. You could leave the “Christmas decorations” up all year and I doubt anyone would wonder why the homeowner hadn’t taken them down yet. Why does tasteful always mean white lights and plain greenery? I think I would fall asleep walking down that hallway! Ah well. To each his own.… Read more »

OneKindesign, i look forward every morning to opening my emails and seeing the homes that you feature. While some may not be my choice in design, i still can appreciate the talent. What happened??? This was the weakest attempt at decorations that I can remember seeing promoted by you all. I certainly hope the decorators didn’t expect to get paid for this job! You can’t hit the ball out of the park every time – but this one was a definite strike out!!

I am struck to respond based on the negative reviews of this design. I LOVE this. It is current and in perfect taste. Exactly how I decorate my home- and love Studio McGee. For people leaving negative reviews…. probably stuck in Christmas decor 15 years ago. Time to get with the now,
