You don’t have to be a ‘Scrooge’ to want a nice tidy home around Christmas and sometimes having too many decorations and hundreds of different colours everywhere can ruin the look of your modern and minimalistic home. That said, you can buy minimalistic Christmas decorations if you know where to look.
Creating a theme
Firstly, you will want to decide on a colour scheme. Maintaining a simplistic Christmas style is all about balancing several colours, rather than opening up a box of tatty Christmas decorations that you’ve accumulated for years and years. By picking colours that go well together such as white, silver and gold, you can give your home a touch of bling without overdoing it. Or you can go with darker colours like purple black and silver; it’s completely up to you but you should only stick with several colours throughout if you want to maintain a simplistic style.
Do the important things well
When it comes to decorating your home for Christmas, there are a few areas that require special attention, such as your tree, your lights and your wrapping paper. These three elements together say a lot about your take on Christmas so pick the colours and designs wisely. We’d always avoid rainbow coloured lights if you love a modern and minimalistic style, whilst placing Santas, snowmen and elf on the windowsill is an absolute no go, all it does it makes your home look crazy and cluttered!
Don’t overdo it
It’s easy to get carried away at Christmas but if you work on the key areas of your home like the tree, the entrance and the walls, your home will look a lot more festive. As soon as you start adding decorations left, right and centre you’ll struggle to maintain that theme you worked so hard to accomplish.
