Minimalist Christmas Décor: Ideas & Inspiration
Decorating for Christmas isn’t just about making your home shine. Christmas is a special moment of the year for joy, festivity, and bringing your family together. But what about minimalist Christmas décor? A simple lifestyle is vital for a minimalist. Simplicity can still radiate in décor with the right approach.
Ashley has all your needs for Christmas home décor, from unique wreaths to the perfect Christmas tree. Wondering how to amp up your home as a minimalist? Today we’re sharing inspiration with our favorite tips and tricks to add a touch of Christmas to your space.
How to Decorate Your Home for Christmas as a Minimalist
Minimalism doesn’t mean you can’t revel in decorating. It’s all about finding essential pieces that speak to you and being intentional in your choices. Ashley is your ideal source for extraordinary minimalist Christmas decorations at unbeatable prices to add a festive touch without doing too much.
Less is always more for minimalist Christmas décor. Decorating as a minimalist is an incredibly personal experience. Each piece you choose will have its special place in your home. Limiting your décor to only the things you truly need can be challenging. Planning how you want each room to look before you decorate can ease this hurdle. Here are some top essentials for minimalist Christmas decorations:
- Christmas tree
- Christmas wreaths
- Christmas greenery and flowers
Clutter is a no-no for minimalism. Create an inviting atmosphere with a monochromatic palette. Using one color will open your space and make it feel bright and light. White, green, and blue will be your best friends. Let’s take green, for example. Opt for various muted shades of green, like forest and deep teal, to add a pop of color without feeling overbearing.
A true minimalist Christmas is the ideal balance of new timeless pieces and DIY projects. So don’t be afraid to repurpose things you already have. Simple home décor staples, like candles, plants, and blankets, can all play a part in your Christmas decorations.
Play on the natural element of Christmas by foraging branches to add around your home, or create a pinecone centerpiece as minimalist Christmas table décor. Candles also bring a warm element to your décor. Use Christmas scents like pine, cinnamon, and clove to further set the aesthetic without adding more tangible items.
Minimalist Christmas decorating might call for some new buys. After you look through the décor you already have, you may still need a few standout pieces. Browse Ashley for statement Christmas décor that resonates with you.
Maybe you’re looking for shatterproof ornaments in a specific tone or a simple doormat to accent your home. We make finding the minimalist Christmas décor you need for those final touches effortless.
Minimalist Christmas Tree Décor
The Christmas tree is the iconic statement of the holiday season. And you can still shine just as bright with minimalist Christmas tree décor. Whether you’re taking the traditional route or browsing artificial Christmas trees, a couple of purposeful additions can bring your Christmas tree to life.
If you’re going with artificial, a simple, realistic small or medium tree will do the trick. A frosted tree, like our 7.5 ft. Flocked Alaskan Pine Christmas Tree with Clear LED String Lighting can also bring a distinct feeling true to the season. Stick with white or warm lighting to create a comforting, welcoming aesthetic.
The essentials you’ll need for minimalist Christmas tree décor are ornaments and a tree skirt. With countless options for ornaments, we suggest keeping it simple with style. Opt for toned-down, vintage-style embellishments in matte colors.
Toppers are optional, but using one adds a cozy feel to your space. Go for a unique yet elegant topper, like our National Tree Company 15″ Snowflake Tree Top.
Outdoor Christmas Decorations for Minimalists
Inherent natural beauty makes the outdoors the perfect canvas for minimalist Christmas décor. But you don’t want to overdo it with minimalist outdoor Christmas decorations. Adding a few statement pieces is all you need.
A Christmas wreath is a décor necessity for your front door. Wreaths are a classic representation of Christmas and welcome your guests with an inviting feel. Try a plain pine or cedar wreath with lighting to keep it super simple. Take it one step further with a flocked wreath or one garnished with Christmas berries and flowers.
Yard decorations are another one of our Christmas décor faves. Gift box assortments and pre-lit spheres create an effortless, magical display that glitters at night. Enhance your outdoor scenery by hanging pre-lit ornaments on your porch.
Place gift box assortments, like our National Tree Company Pre-Lit White Thread Gift Box Assortment, next to your steps or the tree in your front yard. You can also easily DIY gift boxes with a few different-sized boxes, ribbons, and some heavy-duty wrapping paper.
The perfect lighting can add the final simple touch to your minimalist Christmas decorations. You can go with fluttering white lights around your porch pillars or add a pop with a LED snowflake or tree.
