The town square, malls, and your neighborhood are all decked up for the Christmas celebrations and there is so much excitement in the air. While it might be fun to look at, and of course to take selfies with all the interesting decorations you see, maybe you’re not so interested in replicating it at home.
Yep, if you are a minimalist you certainly won’t enjoy having all that loud decor at home. But that doesn’t mean you should stay away from decorations altogether!
We have curated some brilliant ideas for perfect minimal Christmas decor, so let’s have a look.
A Minimal Christmas Tree
You don’t have to go out of your way and buy a giant Christmas tree to participate in the festivities. Bring your personal style to the holiday decor and go minimal. You can do an interesting DIY to create your own tree or you could opt for a tree and stay away from flashy decorations. The celebrations are for you to have fun, so embrace your style and add some interesting elements to the festivities.
A tree might look bare without any ornaments, so we have picked some ideas for you. Look out for some simple ones that are just as classy as the rest of your home. You can include some trendy geometric shapes or a toned down version of the regular ornaments. Also, with the rise in technology, you can get your own ornaments 3D printed to make the decor unique and extra special. Rather than just buying something off the shelf, you can make it more memorable and personal.
I am in love with minimal wreaths! While the traditional wreaths are an instant reminder of the holiday season, I really admire the rustic beauty of a simple one. Although it might be hard to find a minimal wreath in the stores, you can try your hand at some cool DIY tutorials. It is always more special to decorate your home with unique items, and a simple wreath is easy to execute.
Minimal Mantelpiece Decor
Sitting by the fireplace and admiring the beautiful decorations on the mantelpiece can be a magical experience. But once again, you don’t have to go out of your way to decorate it. A few ferns, some personalized items and plain stockings are all you will need to bring that Christmas cheer to your indoor decor. You can save some of your minimal ornaments to place them near the mantelpiece, or make some extra wreaths for decor.
Just Some Stockings
A mantelpiece is not the only place where you can hang your stockings. Find a spot in the living area near your Christmas tree, or a wall that could use some extra decorating. Minimal decor needs creative solutions, so find a corner that can be the focal point in the room. You can even use your side table to create a makeshift vignette. I personally love the idea of hanging the stockings on the staircase.
Minimal Dinner Table Decor
There are so many creative ways in which you can have a stunningly minimal spread on your dinner table. It is ideal if you stick to the theme from the rest of your home decor and use similar elements to create connectivity in the decor. It will also save you time from planning all over again. Some minimal ornaments, pine cones and Christmas tree branches will make a stunning display. Candles add glamor to the ambiance and keep the guests warm. I also love adding cinnamon sticks to the display as they make everything smell festive.
Are you done decorating your home for the holidays? We would love to see how you decorated this year!
