Modern Decorating for the Holidays

Decorating for the holidays can be steeped in tradition – or take on a modern flair. And: you can mix the two styles. Look for contemporary finishes like metallics or mirrored accents. Group “like” items together for a modern look – like this mantle filled with glass candle holders and vases.


This post from the design blog “Curbly” looks at using items that reflect light and choosing geometric shapes to add interest to your home.


If you’re in a small space and need to find an alternative to a Christmas tree, consider decorating branches in a vase. You can use vintage or modern ornaments to dress up this alternative.

If a traditional wreath isn’t your style – consider other materials! The sky is the limit when you consider everything from a wire frame and lights to peacock feathers!
