If you thought the only way to dress your house up for Christmas was with red and green color schemes, white twinkle lights, and Santa-themed decorations, think again! From out-of-the-ordinary color combinations to non-traditional Christmas trees, getting creative with your decor this holiday season is a fun (and stylish) way to get in the spirit.
Check out these five, funky Christmas decor trends that everyone can try. If you’re feeling in a little bit of a decor rut, they’ll be a perfect pick-me-up for your home this holiday season.
#1. Unique Color Combinations
Like we said, tasteful Christmas decor can go beyond the traditional red and green. Try experimenting with a new color scheme either on your tree, mantel, or in your entryway. We love the greens, blues, and silvers used on the tree in this article by Better Homes and Gardens. Browse their slideshow for even more unique color combination ideas.
If you love your home to have a rustic, cozy, cabin-like feel, try decorating with antlers this year. From antler wreaths, to antler ornaments, to antler-themed tablescapes, we can’t get enough of this trend. This slideshow from PopSugar will show you how to do it well.
#3. DIY Christmas Trees
Non-traditional trees are all the rage this year. From repurposed ladders to chalkboard wall creations, putting together a DIY Christmas tree is a great solution for those who maybe don’t have enough space for a real tree, have recently moved into a new home, or are just looking for something more creative this year! Check out these 38 DIY Christmas trees for some inspiration, curated by Buzzfeed.
If you’re up on the latest home decor trends, chances are, you’re already showcasing some feathers around your house. A feather wreath is a fun, easy way to incorporate this trend into your holiday decor. If you’re brave, you can incorporate two trends into one by using feathers and a unique color combination, like this wreath featured in Real Simple.
#5. Adult Advent Calendars
Who says advent calendars are just for the kids? Have some fun with an adult advent calendar this year by counting down the days until Christmas with whiskey, chocolate, tea, or candles. This list from babble is a great place to start, but we recommend creating an advent calendar that fulfills two criteria — 1) that you’ll look forward to opening it everyday, and 2) that it looks great on-display in your home.
With Christmas less than two weeks away, it’s the perfect time to experiment with some of these fun decor trends in your home. It’s also the perfect time to finish up your last-minute Christmas shopping. If you’re running behind, don’t worry.
