Decking the halls is incredibly important. No matter what song is playing on the radio, modern holiday decor is a constant reminder to celebrate the season with warmth, togetherness, and joy. Whether you’re snuggling up on the couch or hanging holiday decorations, the act of decorating is a quick way to bring up happy memories of years past and build anticipation for the memories you’ll soon be making. Here are a few of our favorite ways to up the cheer.
A modern twist can make a classic feel like one-of-a-kind. Take our kilim stockings, for example. The intricate details of these playful patterns make every day feel a little brighter, mixing traditional motifs with timeless colors that can’t be missed. You can even mix and match your hanging holiday decorations with our Dorada tree skirt, crafted from upcycled pieces of raw cotton to create a snowy base for any holiday tree.
Effortless (and unexpected) greenery
Contemporary holiday decor is all about creating moments of surprise, using a bit of imagination to make a statement. Instead of the traditional firs, our favorite holiday centerpieces this year are natural garlands and wreaths made from rich greenery. Drape a garland over the door frame of your family room or even across the headboard of your bed. If you’re in the market for a wreath, we’d recommend placing it on a shelf or countertop, creating a focal point in an often overlooked space.
If you’ve spent weeks searching ‘best velvet pillows’ on your computer, you’re already in the right headspace for the holiday season. Turn any space into your personal comfort zone by rolling out the soft textures of a rich mohair or alpaca throw. Curate the perfect selection of holiday decorative pillows, finding the right balance between luxe velvet, chunky wool, and smooth leather. Be sure to vary the size and texture of your pillows, creating the perfect seasonal mix to sink into after a long day.
Perfectly paired textures
A balanced blend of textures adds depth and contrast to modern holiday decor, effortlessly drawing the eye from one statement piece to another. The best news is you start with what you have. Looking for a match for your leather ottoman? Grab a set of upholstered living room chairs or a soft, neutral area rug to go underneath. If you have leather chairs, no problem. Craft an upholstered ottoman stool to pair with a chunkier wool throw. If you’re looking for something specific, you can always craft your own furniture pieces to get the perfect fit.
Forget the kitchen. The dining table is the heart of the home during the season, the place where everyone gathers to enjoy a holiday dinner or entertain guests. Make the most of every meal this season with modern holiday decor that helps your table shine. Give your dishes a polished finish with a brass serving tray or signature candle holders that sit between lush garlands. This is also a perfect time of year to upgrade your table linens or roll out a table runner.
As much as we love rolling out the carpet for guests, the most important thing is to find things that make every day a little brighter for you. From soft waffle robes, clay espresso cups, or even a new bedding set, give yourself the same treatment that you give others this season. After all, you deserve it.
