Flashy decor and bright colors and patterns aren’t for everyone. These tips can help you keep your holiday decorating minimal and classic.
While the blues, reds, and greens lining the store aisles are enticing in the moment, choosing to deck your house out in too much color can be headache-inducing. Instead, opt for a neutral theme, using monochromatic colors like black and white with a colorful accent. This can be achieved with easily changeable decor like throw pillows.
Wrap presents using brown paper
Go the old-fashioned (and eco-friendly!) route and use brown paper and twine to wrap presents. This look is simple, yet classy, and will make your tree stand out when all the presents are under it. This minimalist choice is easy to personalize, too, and the receiver will be instantly charmed by the extra effort.
Skip the tinsel
When it comes to decorating the tree, decorations don’t have to be colorful and metallic. For a more minimalistic aesthetic, consider adding a faux-fur tree skirt to the bottom of your tree, utilizing strands of white lights, and adding nature-inspired ornaments, like artificial pine cones and white and gold ornament balls.
Keep the focus on one or two items
For the ultimate minimalist design, choose only a couple of holiday pieces for your decor and let those be the focal point of your home. Switching out your everyday couch pillows for holiday-themed ones or placing winter plants in the corners of your home might just be the best way to keep it simple.
