The holiday season is upon us once again, and it's time to start stringing the lights and pulling your Christmas tree up from the basement. And if you're a holiday décor fan, you’ve likely been itching to decorate your home even more than usual this year—probably since the first chill of October.
But there’s no need to rush out year after year and purchase bundles of new Christmas décor, even though the temptation is high—looking at you, Target. Traditional, classic décor you already own is often the most timeless and meaningful, and you won't run the risk of it not being on-trend in years to come.
Read on for 18 elevated traditional Christmas décor ideas to help you deck the halls in your home.
Traditional Meets Neutral
We love this corner display by House of Hanes that blends a chic design aesthetic with a traditional, lush Christmas tree. The neutral leather chair and black-and-white accents serve as the ideal backdrop for the evergreen tree, with the various styles blending seamlessly together.
Simple and Rustic
The roaring fireplace, evergreen mantel, and simple Christmas tree give this living space the warmest and coziest Christmas vibes.
Tired of your old tree skirt? Try a trendy tree collar instead to cover the bottom of your real or artificial Christmas tree.
Christmas To the Max
If you’re going to decorate for Christmas, go all out, and use this design by Thomas Guy Interiors as your guide. This maximal design look features a tree loaded with colorful ornaments, garland draped over all the furniture, and a fresh red floral arrangement.
This wreath matches the home’s décor so well it just might be mistaken for year-round wall art. The wreath's minimalist design and muted colors add a touch of holiday spirit to the space without overwhelming the neutral style with bolder reds and greens.
Christmas, but Make It Glamorous
The Christmas décor in this glamorous bedroom feels at once luxe and classic. The tiny tree fits perfectly in the corner, and the wreath hung from the ornate mirror serves as a reminder of the season each time you get ready in the morning.
Christmas decorations can be found in every color, not just red and green. If you want to add a touch of the holidays in your bedroom, coordinate ornaments and lights with your current color scheme.
All is Calm
Though this Christmas tree by White & Faded is simple and understated, it is the standout feature of this white and rustic living space. The minimal approach to ornaments and lighting leaves the tree feeling natural, matching the room’s vibes perfectly.
