Cotton …clean, white, and natural is this year’s featured holiday decor element.
Here in Georgia, we have a deep love for cotton. It could be that it’s been a big business throughout the state since the late 18th century and every family in the south has a connection to it in one way or another. Or, it could be that every fall fields across the state are covered in cotton just waiting to be harvested, and if you don’t look too closely, they look like they’re covered in snow. A beautiful sight for a state that rarely sees the white fluffy stuff.
With splashes of whites and neutrals adorning home décor lately, I’m not surprised cotton has become a decorating norm. Its texture adds interest to a variety of decorating styles. Interior decorators in the Atlanta area and throughout the country have been creatively working its natural beauty into their designs.
With the popularity of HGTV’s Fixer Upper, Joanna has been adding springs of cotton branches to her rooms for years. From the famous Farmhouse Style to Shabby Chic its rustic feel and clean lines are a beautiful organic addition to any room.

I embraced its natural element this year by adding it to my Holiday Home Tour Christmas tree. The cotton added an elegant warmth to the tree and brought in an organic feel to the design.
