Sometimes, keeping things neutral is the way to go. It also helps carry your décor over into the new year! If finding the right color scheme is overwhelming, or you just like to keep things simple, then incorporating a neutral holiday style is perfect for you.


Here are some elements to consider for a modern neutral look:

  • Neutral colors like white, gray, cream, and beige
  • Natural wood or plant elements
  • Neutral colored crocheted accents like throw blankets or stockings
  • White poinsettias with modern, neutral bows
  • Solid color or minimal patterned wrapping paper that matches your Christmas tree (think stamped craft paper or simple stripes)

A retro theme can be one of the most exciting ways to have fun with your decorating this holiday season! This style allows you to get creative with pastels and glitter, what’s more fun than that?

The eclectic mix of colors and textures that can be incorporated in this style allows for plenty of creativity. To get the perfect retro look, choose a scheme of up to 5 different colors. These colors can match your existing décor or go against the grain to switch things up!


Some retro holiday decorating ideas include:

  • All the sparkles and glitter!
  • Vintage items like nutcrackers, ceramic Christmas trees or antique cookie jars
  • Take inspiration from your childhood—your grandmother would love to see the very same tree-topper that sat on her tree for decades come back to life in your home!
