Modern and Unique Holiday Decorating

Modern Holiday Decor

The time for Holiday decorating has come and so I thought I would share some inspirations for a more modern style of decorating in case you have grown as  tired of the traditional as I have. Here are some unique ideas from “House and Home” and “Living Etc.”  that I found inspiring.

Deck the mantel with hundreds of Christmas ornaments.  Sparkly blue decorations (some vintage) are augmented with glistening “snowballs” (styrofoam balls coated in clear glue and rolled in a box of white glitter). A triptych depicting a snowy scene, painted by homeowner and designer Ian McLeod, repeats the scheme. Wallpaper or wrapping paper could be decoupaged onto a blank canvas for a similiar look.

This do-it-yourself display board strikes a festive note with a vintage style suitable for a front hall. An elegant white side table and mercury glass candlesticks underneath create a sparkling tableau.  After the holidays, the board can be used for mail and shopping.

A fluffy white Christmas tree sparkles with golden lights, while candles of different heights add interest as a simple centerpiece. Tree ornaments play off two panels of blue and gold wallpaper used to create a feature wall.

A simple bouquet of bare branches in a sand- filled clear vase offers a chic and easy alternative to the customary Christmas tree. To keep the look modern, opt for ornaments in a limited palette, such as these silver and amber decorations.

You can create your own tree by attaching Post-It “leaves” to a tall mirror, then personalizing with the kids’ doodles.
