Christmas décor ideas with a modern twist

When we think of Christmas décor, we usually imagine the same traditional colours. These include red, gold, green and silver. However, if you want to decorate your home a little differently this year, you will be surprised how many ideas are out there! Here are just a few to get you started.


While you might not think of black when imagining your Christmas décor, it is the perfect colour for creating a truly decadent scene. Black and white with gold accents could be just what you need for an elegant Christmas dinner.


You could steer clear of all things glitter if you prefer. Opt for pastel shades to warm up your home this year. Look for Christmas décor in light shades such as peach, light lemon and off-white or pure white. You can even use mostly white with just a splash of colour here and there.

Spray paint

You can transform ordinary decorations, like pine cones, into something more elegant by applying gold or silver spray paint. You can do this with balls of twine too. Keep the rest of your Christmas décor simple and add just a little bit of sparkle in between.


If you want to go with something a little more vintage, you can go all out and decorate your home in the most vibrant and bold colours available. Choose globes and tinsel in various shades of pink, purple, silver, blue and anything else that catches your eye. Choose bright stockings to hang from your mantelpiece as well as bright wrapping paper for gifts. Yes, the gifts under the tree can also be considered part of your Christmas décor.

These are all easy ways in which you can spruce up your home for the holidays without repeating the same Christmas décor you use every year. You could even rotate your decorations so that you only repeat similar designs or colour schemes every few years. This will certainly keep things interesting!
