We're dreaming of a neutral Christmas. But fear not, we'll always have a soft spot for the over-the-top and totally extra holiday decor (hello, do you know us?) However, there's a time and a place for all that, and we're well aware that not everyone wants to deck their halls with pink, glitz and glitter. So, bring on all the winter whites and earthy accents, because we're sharing our neutral Christmas home decor essentials for those wanting to go a little more minimal this holiday season.
The key to a simplistic Christmas ambience is embellishing what you already have with a few festive accents. No need to put away your regular home and room decor! Just keep your color scheme in mind, and add a few complementary classic Christmas decorations or tree skirts to give your space a little holiday flair.
For example, our CMO Royale's home is very light and white with lots of warm wooden details. So, she decorated her living room shelves with neutral toned trees, soft white trimmings, vintage candle holders, and hints of evergreen.
If we could only have one Christmas decoration for the rest of our lives, it would be a toss up between mini trees and mini houses. They're both just so cute, classic, and effortless! This wooden tree is a must-have for our neutral theme lovers, and it pairs beautifully with this flocked green one by its side. Incorporating hints of those traditional Christmas colors here and there is an excellent way to bring the holiday spirit without throwing off your home aesthetic.
These stoneware trees are also a Christmas classic! Use them as a simple centerpiece for your holiday parties, or stagger them on the mantle above your Christmas stockings. And, if you’re in the mood for a little more merriment, break out your outdoor Christmas decorations and drape those sparkly string lights above the fireplace.
Pining for a little more texture? You can never go wrong with a few bottle brush tree decorations. They come in various colors and look great just about anywhere in your home.
This is another fabulous way to add more color to the mix. And, it doesn’t hurt that they’re very on-trend with the comeback of mid-century modern home decor.
As for mini holiday homes, we've fa-la-la-la-llen in love with these adorable hand-painted houses. Though they aren't completely neutral, they are the perfect addition to any rustic Christmas theme. They’re also not as “in-your-face” as other indoor Christmas decor, so they’re easy to keep up and admire all winter long.
Have we all finally accepted that muted pink is a neutral color? Okay good, because pink Christmas decor is our personal favorite. This flocked dusty pink tree has the perfect amount of color and sparkle to spruce up any holiday bookshelf or mantle.
And if one pink Christmas tree isn't enough, create a whole forest of varying details and textures. Hello, neutral pink winter wonderland!
Counting down to Christmas has never looked cozier! Every home needs an advent calendar or two, and we adore this white embroidered advent pillow. It's such a fun and unique Christmas decoration, and it fits in nicely with any neutral holiday home.
Not to mention, your furry friends will love it too. Feliz navi-dog!
If you're on the look out for an advent calendar that's even more minimal, this wooden white house advent is ideal! It makes such a fantastic statement while still maintaining a neutral aesthetic. Not to mention, it has functioning warm Christmas lights, so it looks extra magical lit up on those cozy winter nights.
We love the look of a simple belsnickle Santa atop a Christmas mantle. This adorable little burst of merriment is dressed in white, but we have an assortment of others to match any color scheme. These little Santa are perfect for minimalists because they're jolly without being gaudy.
Decorating for Christmas is our favorite tradition, so we are so excited that the most wonderful time of the year is here! Wishing you a very neutral Christmas, and maybe even a neutral New Year?
