Minimalist Holiday Decor Ideas

The end of the year comes with the expectation that people must decorate for the holidays, which can be overwhelming. Some like to go all out and decorate their entire home top to bottom Thereis

absolutely nothing wrong with this choice I can appreciate the grandeur of a beautifully decoratedhomewithlayersthattotallytransform ahome decoratingfortheholidaysisarealtime commitment.Manysimplyskipitbecausethetask seems too daunting to tackle For those in the “I might just skip it this year” category, the good news is, it is possible to add a few sprinkles of holiday cheer here and there and still get its beautifuleffectinyourhome

Theideaoftheholidaysistoturnourinteriorsinto warmer, cheerful spaces since it is cold outside You can warm up your home by adding a few simple touches that are easy and quick to do For the sake of simplicity and easy implementation, we are foregoing a tree. With that in mind, considerthefollowing

Garlands are my absolute favorite greenery to decoratewith Theirlookisveryimpactfulandyou can add a few things to them if you wish From pine cones to contrasting ribbons, to ornaments, just about anything goes beautifully on them I prefer natural garlands to artificial ones. You can hang them just about anywhere: over doors, beams, light fixtures, mantels, tables, and mirrors The natural garland will add a lovely aroma to the space

Wreaths arealsoveryeasytouseinyourdecorfor a minimalist look. Since these come in a large variety of materials or get a fresh one they are super easy to decorate with You can hang differentsizedandshapedonesinmanyplaces:on doors, above a mantel or fireplace, on a bookcase, oronwindows

Ornaments and lights are the added layers that beautifullyenhancegarlandsandwreaths Youmay also simply swag or hang them in clusters or individually on windows or door openings, fill a bowl or jar with them and display it on a table or sideboard.

Decor can also enhance the look and feel of the holidays There are many out there but to keep minimal I’ll recommend lanterns, a wire basket withlogsinit,fauxfurthrowsorpillows,andplushy faux animal skin rugs These certainly will add warmthtoyourhome.

Candles are always something that will instantly enhance the holiday feel get your preferred holidayscented candle and you are set. Personally, I love anything with woodsy notes like Frazier fir, balsam, or cedar They make for excellent holiday scents Find your favorite and light up a few of themaroundthehouse

I hope these ideas will get you excited enough to stayoutofthe“Imightjustskipitthisyear”group Implement two or three that will help you create a simpleandmeaningfulholidaydecorinyourhome HappyHolidays!
