Simple Christmas Decor Ideas

Each year I am so excited to decorate for Christmas. This year, with Thanksgiving being so close, I knew we wouldn’t have as much time to enjoy the decor.

So, I decided to make my main living space full of Christmas decor ideas that can transition into the winter season.

Simple Greens

The main “Christmasy” decor I used in this space are simple greens. Cedar, juniper and pine are all beautiful winter greens that I feel can easily be left up after Christmas is over.

Mixing this greenery into my everyday decor adds that Christmas touch.

Cozy Textures

Another way to add some simple Christmas decor is to use cozy textures. Velvet pillows, sherpa throws, warm wood tones, and soft rugs are all easy ways to warm up a space.

Plus, none of them are overtly “Christmas” so they can easily be left out all winter long.

Rearrange Furniture

One of the often unexpected delights of decorating for Christmas is coming up with new ideas for decor I already own.

This season, I moved some of the furniture around to accommodate some ideas I had. This simple swap gave my rooms a fresh feeling without actually purchasing anything new.

Often a Christmas tree will cause us to rearrange furniture to accommodate it. So this winter, try doing the same with your furniture even after the holidays are over!

I hope that these Christmas decor ideas help you as we approach the winter decorating season. So much work is put into decorating for the holidays, so why not do it in a way that can be enjoyed all season long?!
