Enjoy the Simpler Side of Christmas Decorations
You don't have to go all out to show some holiday cheer; here are great decorating ideas for the minimalist or modernist
I’m no scrooge...I love Christmas and holiday decor. But I like it a bit more on the restrained side. Natural greenery, wreaths, candles, silver, gold and white ... white bee lights only for me please! If you're like me and appreciate the simpler side of holiday decorating, here are a few ideas.
You can't get more simple than this white-on-white design with Scandinavian modern flair. I love a good decked-out Christmas tree (all white lights of course), but I love bare branches with ornaments even more.
Last year we had a rosemary topiary bush that we decorated with ornaments, but my favorite is still the bare branches with minimal ornaments.
A few simple wreaths are more than enough to say Christmas. It's not always necessary to bang people over the head with it by having decorations covering every available surface.
This is adorable and perfect for a modern or minimalist abode. Stick a star on top, or a few ornaments or leave it bare — it still stays Christmas to me!
I have a thing for green plants in urns, and I have a thing for burlap. This is cute, crafty and minimal all at the same time. Decorating the mantel is a timeless tradition, so coming up with new ways to do it is a welcome sight.
This is a great-looking holiday table. There are a few random ornaments here and there ... and that wonderful wreath light fixture above the table.
The simple bud vase and the green, black, silver and natural linen palette are festive and tasteful at the same time.
I couldn't resist this modern wood ornament, especially on the bare tree branch.
