Unique Holiday Décor Ideas for Your Home

When we think about the traditional Christmas or holiday experience, we often envision a big green tree, never-ending strands of tinsel and an overwhelming number of Santa decorations. While these decorations might bring you cheery nostalgia of holidays past, it can be hard to steer away from the traditional holiday decor to make the holidays reflect your own unique style. With these unique holiday décor ideas, you can create a stylish and sophisticated holiday look that stands out from traditional.  

Skip the traditional ornaments

Does the interior of your home have an aesthetic you don’t want to shy away from? You can incorporate your holiday décor into your home by matching the aesthetic you’ve created. How? Choose unique decor that embodies your family’s style. Or just choose décor that best reflects your family’s values. You can do this by adding unique ornaments that represent special moments or your family’s interests such as picture frame ornaments, specialty ornaments or even customized ornaments. You can also go out of the box with tree ornaments by creating your own. 


Go beyond red and green

When you think of the holiday season, flashes of the traditional red and green color combination typically come to mind. Go beyond these Christmas color expectations and opt for something bold, yet wintry, such as Amethyst or a Midnight Blue. These colors will fit well into almost any winter theme and add a unique and sophisticated style to any home. You don’t have to stick to the traditional decorations in these colors – buy vases, candles and other home decor in these colors to complement your specific style.


Leave the fabric and tinsel garlands in the attic this year 

While tinsel garlands and ribbon garlands might bring back memories of your childhood Christmas tree, there are other unique ways to deviate from traditional and take a unique approach. Try a burlap garland or even a floral garland. Originally, Christmas trees were decorated with floral garlands, but newer and brighter floral garland decorations give an updated feel to your tree. You can try your hand at making your own floral garland and incorporate several different kinds of flowers to complement your tree. By making your own you can choose types of flowers and colors to match your décor. 


Set up your Christmas display outdoors 

Have a cozy outdoor patio or fireplace? Take the Christmas setting outdoors this season and set up your tree and décor in your outdoor space. Use the outdoor mantle to decorate and adorn the space with twinkling lights. This can create the perfect space to celebrate the holiday cheer outdoors where you can enjoy hot cocoa, warm cookies and toast marshmallows by the fire. If you live in the south, spending Christmas outdoors probably won’t be unbearable, considering snow and freezing temperatures usually aren’t frequent.   


Small decorations make a big difference 

To make a big statement with smaller décor and decorations, use lanterns and vases to fill with Christmas items such as glass ornaments or individual Christmas string lights – or just the bulbs – to create cheery décor around the home. Spruce up your front porch with garland and use mini paper bag lights to create a simple, yet unique and festive walkway. By utilizing small decorations in eye-catching ways, you can still light up your home without buying thousands of Christmas lights. 


With these unique holiday décor and decoration ideas, you can leave the overused traditions of Christmas past behind and start your own traditions with a fresh look. Your décor will heavily depend on your own preferences, but it doesn’t take a thousand decorations to make it your own.
