Christmas Decor Ideas:
1. Stick to a color palette.
Decide on your Christmas color palette beforehand, then purchase all your decorations in line with the chosen color scheme.
Red and green are the traditional go-to colors, but you don’t have to stick with the norm. Break the status quo and opt for neutrals, metallics, pastels, or pink paired with another color.
Incorporate these colors in throws, ornaments, candle containers, wrapping papers, flowers, ribbons, and Christmas socks.
If you’ve got ample time on your hands, paint the inside of the bookshelf, the back of the glass cabinets, or door to add pops of color.
2. Incorporate natural elements.
Natural elements lend a rustic charm and infuse an organic touch to your abode.
Switch out your linen table runners for burlap ones, neatly arrange boxwood cuttings as a centerpiece, fill clear vases and apothecary jars with pinecones and strategically display them around the house, or leave your cut wood uncovered for added texture.
3. Fresh greenery and flowers
Want an inexpensive way to spread a little holiday cheer? Make use of flowers and greenery plucked right from your garden – they invoke an unmatched pristine aroma sure to uplift moods.
To incorporate foliage and flowers into your home, you can:
- Garnish your table runner with fig leaves and pinecones.
- Pair red crimson roses with natural branches for a striking centerpiece.
- Wrap trimmings from your Christmas tree around the mantle and doorways, or
- Attach real branches to gift wrappings in lieu of ribbons/fresh holly on napkin rings.
Our favorite is fluffing up a store-bought garland/wreath with organic greenery like eucalyptus, pine leaves, fir, and green hydrangea. Then further embellishing with in-season fruits such as lime, oranges, and lemons for a distinct, eye-catching look.
4. Add some sparkle
A little bit of sparkle here and there adds shimmer and perfectly embody the jolly holiday vibe.
Deck wreaths and garlands with gilded baubles, purchase glitter decorations, use mercury vases, or spray paint your leaves metallic.

5. Creatively wrap your presents
Why not integrate your presents as part of the Christmas decor?
Wrap presents in similar hues with the room’s color scheme for a cohesive look, or in showy colors to stand out. Then line your stairs with these beautiful presents.
6. Don’t forget the lights
Drape the mirror with string lights or lace garlands with twinkling lights for an enchanting warm glow.
Or wreathe your Christmas tree with pillar, fairy, or globe lights to create a cozy ambiance.
7. Scented candles
Rouse up the five senses with the alluring fragrances and soft lighting of scented candles strategically sprinkled around your pad.
Apple, spice, pumpkin, fir, and wood-scented candles are considered festive and will instantly get you into that celebration spirit.
8. Cozy throws
Christmas, unfortunately, falls on the coldest season for the northern hemisphere fellows. Luckily, throws present an elegant way to wade it off.
Dress up your couches with thick throws, preferably in plaid patterns, to keep your guests warm and introduce a vibrant festive texture.
Thick warm ones in wool, velvet, fleece, or heavy knits will keep you warm for longer as opposed to cotton and linens.
