It's almost time to bring the tree and lights down from the attic! Want to spice up your holiday decor with a new look or theme?
To get you inspired, we asked some of our favorite decor experts to share the decor trends and DIY projects they're planning to try when they deck the halls.
1. Embrace a Mid Century Color Palette
"I've been wanting to infuse a midcentury modern feel into our home this holiday season and color has been the perfect way to do it. I'm putting a twist on the classic green and red by using bright greens and pinks for ornaments." - Brittany of The House that Lars Built
2. Frost Your Decor With Flocking
“This Christmas I am embracing the snow flocked look. I am using a faux flocked tree and garland to make a winter wonderland in California, where we don’t get any snow. I will decorate with lots of neutral colors. Whites, creams, silver, and gold, will be the color palette this year.” - Nocile of Fancy Fix Decor
3. Try a Terra Cotta and Green Color Scheme
"Color is a way to express our soul desires. This year, my Christmas colors will be earthy tone and greens. Earthy colors create a calm and inviting ambiance and green a sense of a fresh start and renewal." - Maricela of Maricela Lopez Design
4. Whip Up Some DIY Felt Trees
"These DIY felt Christmas trees were so fun and easy to make and add the perfect whimsical touch to my holiday decorating! I cut tree patterns out of felt, sewed, and stuffed them, then added sticks for the trunk and drilled a hole in the base so they would stand up. I love the muted and natural colors of the felt...the cream, olive green, and rust are subtle but still festive. I love knowing that I made these trees and can display them around our home year after year!" - Raftyn of Rignell Ranch
5. Set Up a Modern Christmas Village
"Modern and traditional co-exist beautifully in one of this year’s top Christmas trends: Modern Christmas Villages. The Christmas Village has been reimagined with clean lines, neutral colors and simple designs – a far cry from the ornate villages of Christmases past. From Scandi-style white ceramic to black metal farmhouses, mix and match these pieces to create a unique village that embodies your own personal holiday aesthetic." - Jenna of House of Rad
6. Create An Inviting Porch With Real Greenery
“I really love seeing natural elements in decor. Sure you can purchase faux greenery, but to me there’s nothing like the real thing! If you feel nervous about bringing the outdoors in, you can focus on your front porch by foraging pine cones, branches, logs and stems and putting them together to create a perfectly festive look—and the best part—it’s free!” - Carli of Made By Carli
7. Have a Blue (And White) Christmas
"I love decorating for the holidays with traditional colors that work with the tones already in my home. I have always found blue and white with a pop of red to be cheerful during the holiday season!" - Maggie of Margaret of York
8. Go Farmhouse with Natural Tones and Pops of Red
"Christmas decorating is an extension of our everyday modern farmhouse home. My Christmas decor is all about creams, wood tones, and some splashes of red for accent. Additionally, I love faux greenery around our home with trees, garlands, and wreaths.
My goal is a cozy and somewhat nostalgic look. Lots of chunky knits, faux furs, and other winter textiles will be represented in pillows and blankets around our home. All of this combined should do the trick." - Brendt of She Gave It A Go
9. Keep It Simple with Neutrals + Garland
"I always try to incorporate items that are already a part of my home's decor. I love keeping things neutral and simple and incorporating lots of garland, which always makes everything more festive." - Magda of My Modern Dom
