Modern Christmas Decor Ideas

Update Your Christmas Decor

If decorating for the holidays brings you as much joy as buying a new mid-century couch or shopping for beautiful watercolor wallpaper, it’s time to bring your Christmas decorations up to par with the rest of your decor tastes. While we will always have a soft place in our hearts for classic Christmas decor, this year we’re all about a fresh new take on holiday wreaths, centerpieces, and mantles. Modern Christmas decor is all about simplicity, understatement and beauty .

 

 

 

 

A Simple, Gorgeous Wreath

Retire your pine wreath and pick a different evergreen this year. This chic wreath from Treasures and Travels uses eucalyptus and dried berries to create a toned-down take on a holiday classic.

 This year, think simple and elegant instead of over the top. We love how understated (yet beautiful) this wreath is – and you can make it in an afternoon.

Go Mini

While a large, statement-worthy Christmas tree is a necessity, why not add a few charming miniature trees to your mantel and tables? We love these quaint trees from Say Yes made from pine scraps and tree stumps. Gather a few branches from your Christmas tree, a couple of birch stumps and a glue gun, and you’ll have a charming display for any corner of your home.

A Glam Ornament Upgrade

Modern decor doesn’t have to be minimalist and stark. This glam wooden diamond ornament from A Beautiful Mess is an upgraded, fun DIY that will take your tree into the new year. Metallics are very trendy in the decor world right now, and gold has always been a Christmas mainstay, so we love this updated twist that incorporates festivity and glam.

Hang Multiple Simple Wreaths

Now that you’ve left those outdated wire-and-evergreen wreathes behind, combine a handful of simple wreaths to really set the tone. Hang three to five variously sized greenery and birch wreaths on a branch next to a dining table or a buffet for a contemporary way to add cheer this holiday.

A Neutral, Beaded Garland Idea

This vintage beaded garland is the perfect accompaniment to that mid-century couch you splurged on. Once you’ve got the basics of a good fireplace mantel down, this understated garland from Oleander + Palm will take it to the next level. Pair this garland with greenery for a gloriously modern look.

Whimsical and Wooden Christmas Trees
