Colored lights and family ornaments make for a sentimental Christmas and a deep green tree covered in sparkling white lights a classic one. But if you’re ready to branch out and try something new this year try these tips for a Modern Christmas.

Updated Monochromatic Metallics

Gold is always a holiday season staple. This year mix glitter, satin and metallic ornaments of the same color and shade for a sleek monochromatic tree. The clean lines of geometric ornaments will be sure to set your theme apart from Christmas’ past. Make sure everything from the tinsel to the present wrappings tie into your gold theme for the full effect.

Or try silver decor sprinkled across a white tree. Matching ribbon and fluffy fur accents will have you feeling like you live in a true winter wonderland. If you want to work the monochromatic trend but can’t have Christmas without some color choosing a red theme makes this look feel modern and sentimentally classic all at once.

A Very Hygge Christmas

Reach for decorations made of natural elements like cotton or burlap and plenty of pine branches mixed with branches of berries. Greenery and neutral colors are what really make this style.

So stock up on sticks of cinnamon, clear ornament bulbs filled with wintery leafs, and stockings made of fur. Candles, books and cozy warm socks all bring the essence of cozy warmth to your home for the holidays.

Eucalyptus Is Having A Moment

Whether found on wreaths, mantel side decor, tree decorations, garland, or even as the final touch to present wrapping eucalyptus is in all the holiday inspiration spreads.

Tie a sprig with twine wrapped around a present or add some into your pine wreaths and garland. If you can’t get your hands on some eucalyptus try bringing elements with a similar lush velvety green or even some eucalyptus scented candles.

A New Flavor For Wreaths

This year wreaths are scaling way back to basics. Forget extravagant, fluffy wreaths stuffed with bows, berries, and birds.

Minimal wreaths made from a gold hoop with just a small bunch of greenery artfully arranged as an accent make a big statement. Pine cones, branches, and berries mixed with non-traditional greenery is what makes these new wreaths feel like a breath of fresh air.

Bring The Outdoors Inside

Bring in branches and slices of tree stumps into your decor this year. And get creative! The craftier you get with this look the more complete and unique it will look.

Hang ornaments from a ribbon tied to a large branch hung horizontally across the wall. Tuck lemons, tangerines and oranges dotted with cloves throughout your home for a modern look and classic holiday fragrance.

And if you want to go all out this year incorporate all of these themes together! It will surely be one to remember
