Some of us wouldn’t dare trade out our family’s heirloom holiday decor for something new and flashy. Grandma’s ornaments, auntie’s crystal and mother’s china are what make the holidays the holidays. But others crave a fresh, clean and new look to spruce up the winter season. For those intrepid decorators, we offer these contemporary solutions to tired old traditions.
Monochromatic Accesories ⇾
Ditch your relative’s complicated nativity for strikingly unusual accents that still speak to the warmth of the holiday season, and carry over easily into the new year.
⇽ One Accent Color
Choose light monochromatic shades like white, gold and silver, and contrast them with bold splashes of red or green accents for a modern take on your tree.
Natural Elements ⇾
Bring the outdoors in during the chilly days of winter with elements of nature like pinecones, branches and tiny accent boughs.
⇽ Winter White
White is clean, classy and contemporary. Choose the most basic color for linens, candles and china for a simple but striking look this season.
