Vintage skis and an old-fashioned sled frame the space above the comfortable, tufted leather sofa in this traditional living room. The Christmas tree is trimmed classically with ribbon and bulb ornaments but features a contemporary marquee sign-inspired star at the top.
When choosing elements for holiday decorations, keep the style of your space in mind. In the bonus room, which has a sleek, contemporary look (despite the vintage ski-house accents), the design team layered on the holiday charm, but stuck with a cool palette of blue and white, with a few touches of black and gray.

Accessorizing with vintage winter sporting equipment, such as skis, snowshoes, a sled and skates, gives a rustic cottage appearance to a North Carolina front porch decorated by blogger Amy Buchanan of AttaGirlSays. The sports equipment joins yard sale finds, including the table, vintage wooden toolbox and the dresser frame.
This navy blue kids' bedroom features a sports-adventure theme with a twist of nautical flair. The three-drawer dresser was adorned with a relief stencil of a schooner. Above the dresser, world globes, more sailboats and a framed vintage advertisement for a ski trip add to the travel and adventure style.
