The Forts, a North Carolina family, wanted to take advantage of their 1913 mountain lodge in the wintertime for a true cottage Christmas. A tawny palette pulled from the surrounding forest balances the dark chestnut in the family's den. Simple holiday stockings hang from the mantle, while small wreaths grace the windows.
