I love the holiday season. One of my favorite ways to commemorate it is by decorating our home. I think the best holiday decor is an act of personal expression. I’ve played around with different holiday decor styles over the years—from modern to eclectic to traditional to Scandinavian-inspired. Every year, I love to get a few new holiday decor pieces to add to the mix.
We’re sharing this post a bit earlier this year, as some key decor pieces tend to sell out relatively quickly. I hope you enjoy browsing through the list I’ve pulled together!
1. Williams Sonoma Fresh Western Red Cedar Garland 15′ – 25′ $60 – $90
2. Crate & Barrel Faux Cypress Garland 72″ $100
3. Terrain via Anthropologie Faux Cedar Garland 6′ – 9′ $68 – $98
4. West Elm Pre-Lit Faux Red Berry Garland 60″ $129
When it comes to holiday decor, I think greenery is the base of everything (and a great place to start your shopping). Garland in particular makes a big impact and I love its versatility. You can keep things minimal and let the garland shine on its own or layer it as much as you like with other decor elements. I tend to go with traditional green garland but think a unique option like this berry garland is a fun route to go too!
We hang multiple wreaths throughout our home during the holiday season. I like both traditional green options and ones with a bit of a twist. I pulled a variety of options that I think would work well with just about any holiday decor aesthetic.
9. Terrain via Anthropologie Faux Noble Fir 7′ – 10′ $348 – $648
10. Balsam Hill via Nordstrom Pre-Lit Alpine Balsam Fir 7.5′ $699
11. Balsam Hill via Amazon Pre-Lit Classic Blue Spruce 4.5′ – 9′ $295 – $895
12. Joss & Main Dunhill Fir White Pre-Lit Tree 6.5′ – 9′ $216 – $370
The tree (or trees) you decide to display in your home is such a personal choice. Joe loves big trees with personal ornaments while I tend to prefer styles that are a bit more minimal. When deciding on a tree, I think it’s helpful to consider where it will go in your house and how it will be framed by the rest of the decor in the space.
Stockings are a fun way to dress up a home during the holidays. There’s a little something for everyone in these stocking options! I love the idea of choosing a stocking that contrasts a bit with the style of your home, but you can also simply choose the option your heart loves most.
A tree doesn’t really look finished without a skirt! Whether you choose a basket skirt or a cloth skirt, I think this is an area where you can have a lot of fun and get really personal with your choice.
It’s always nice to have a few additional decor accents sprinkled throughout your home over the holidays, and I think a little can go a long way. I particularly love these minimal nutcrackers for a modern take on holiday decor.
