Guest Picks: Holiday Decor for the Modern Home
There’s no place like home for the holidays, and I adore these dainty geometric house ornaments.
Who doesn't feel nostalgic when holding a snow globe? I love the lines of this one. So cute!
This Moravian star pendant is the perfect example of traditional meets modern. Add an optional light kit to bring it to life.
Don’t forget to cozy up the sofa, side chair and guest bed with an extra blanket. These pom-poms are a fun touch.
Bring warm ambience to a ho-hum window or drab corner with these brass-socketed string lights.
So your cats wreak havoc on your tree skirt? Try a galvanized tree collar instead.
Everyday glass ornaments take a spin on the modern side with the addition of gold plating. Use them as jewelry for your tree, or incorporate them into place settings at the table.
These graceful boughs are brought to you by way of laser-cut wood. Display them on a table, sideboard, console or mantel for a wintry vignette.
Instead of throwing money at a tree skirt, opt for a few sheepskins (faux, if you prefer) around the base of the your tree. Gifts will appear as if they’re resting on a blanket of snow, and after Christmas the rugs can be used elsewhere in the house.
Make these shapely, black-edged placements the foundation for a classy table setting.
The silhouette of these brass candleholders is nothing short of modern elegance. Group a trio of varying heights on a coffee table, or scatter them down the dinner table.
A winter white felt garland is a great textural touch. Go ahead — leave it up all winter long!
For a truly lived-in look, I prefer non-matching stockings. Mix colors, patterns and textures for modern imperfection. This traditional knit stocking is adorned with playful pom-poms.
This simple linen stocking is trimmed with a dose of miniature stripes.
Try a pop of red in an ikat dot pattern.
The black burlap of this stocking accentuates one of the most beloved silhouettes of Christmas.
Simple white dinnerware gets a whole new look with gold-rimmed edges and organic shapes.
Place this metal basket near the tree to corral smaller gifts.
Drape a merry banner across the mantel, above the buffet or on an empty wall. Merry Christmas!
This resin deer head doesn’t have Rudolph’s glowing nose, but it does boast gold antlers!Next: Build a Refreshingly Alternative Plywood Christmas Tree
