Although the perfect Christmas party simply requires family, friends, and holiday cheer, there is something to be said about creating a happy holiday atmosphere with the right decor. If you’re not in love with the traditional reds and greens of the season, you may want to consider adding a few contemporary Christmas decor ideas to your home this holiday season.
When your evergreen wreath has seen better days, and you’d love to trade it in for a more modern look, the options are endless! Swap out the pine needles for citrus fruit or pinecones to create a delightful twist on a traditional item. Put your ornaments to good use with a unique and customizable ornament wreath. If you want to be more innovative, there’s no limit the whimsical ways you can use candy and other foods to build a wreath that looks just as delicious as it tastes.
Non-Traditional Christmas Trees
Christmas decor isn’t truly complete without a tree, is it? No one said it had to be a typical Christmas tree, though! If you share a home with a rascal of a cat or dog, or maybe a particularly active toddler, a traditional tree may be quite the hazard. Instead, consider purchasing a Christmas tree mobile, or if you’re feeling particularly crafty, build your own! Surprisingly, PVC pipe can create a modern and unique Christmas display as well. Let your imagination be free!
Alternative Color Schemes
Nothing says Christmas quite like the mixture of reds and greens, but you might be looking for an alternative this year. Pair the gold items and ornaments that you already own with white or black to create a glamorous and decadent feel. If monochromatic options don’t suit your style, there’s no shortage of bright and colorful combinations to inspire you. Violet, brown, bronze, and white make for an elegant color scheme, but pairing blush, blue, and gold create the perfectly pretty palette.
Whoever said you can’t have fun with your Christmas decor couldn’t have been more wrong! If you’re ready to trade in the traditional look and crave a contemporary atmosphere, we hope you found this blog useful!
