Mid Century Modern Christmas Living Room

My living room is my favorite space to decorate for Christmas. While I didn’t go all out with a mid century modern Christmas tree, I did enjoy incorporating some modern elements into my decor. I love the look of a sparse Charlie brown tree to bring in that Scandinavian element, but I can’t resist a full tree if I have the chance!

My goal for my Christmas living room was to be able to keep it simple while creating a cozy environment. Since many mid century modern Christmas decorations are very simple, I just kept the theme of simplicity in mind as I styled this space.

Key Elements of Simple & Cozy Mid Century Modern Christmas Decor

The first area I added touches of mid century style to is our large window.

Create a Focal Point

The simple style of the hoop wreaths is a beautiful focal point for the room. It brings attention to the outside without overpowering the space.

Next, I added a simple single strand of lighting, which you can find all the details on in this post, and then topped it with my favorite faux garland.

I love how it dresses up the space while remaining simplistic and subdued.

Keep the Knick Knacks to a Minimum

Once I had my focal point established, I decided to only display a few key pieces on my mid century cabinetry.

I always love to add in bits of vintage to my decor, no matter what the main style is that I’m going for. This year, I found this massive marble mortar and pestle at an antique store and I think it’s perfect for displaying neutral Christmas ornaments.

I also added some mid century touches with vintage glass that is probably from the 50s or 60s to help create a magical glow under the twinkle lights.

Simplify Your Christmas Tree

The final step to keeping your mid century modern Christmas decorations simplistic yet cozy is to keep your Christmas tree simple. Like I said above, I love the look of a sparse tree, but if you enjoy a fuller tree like I do, keep it simple with minimal ornaments!

I simply draped chunky yarn and beaded garlands on my tree to dress it up while keeping it simple. Then, I used two simple glitter picks to cascade down the side for a little flare.

I love adding a bit of warmth to the Christmas tree with a woven tree collar as well.

  1. What color is your side board? I can’t quite tell if it is brown or natural from the link you shared. Thank you!

  2. Be sure to follow the links at the end of this post on Christmas home tourism so that they can be influenced in many ways. I always enjoy taking people’s Virtual Holiday Decoration Tours, and I hope you do too. The simple style of hoop sheets is a beautiful focal point for the room. It draws attention to the outside without much force on the space.
