12 Modern Christmas Decorating Ideas

There is so much inspiration for Christmas decor out there that I just had to share some of my favorites with you today.

Even though I don’t do completely modern Christmas decorations in my own home, I do seem to gravitate toward modern Christmas decorating when I’m browsing the internet or out shopping.  What can I say, I love the simplicity and the clean lines.  And I love that you can stick to black and white or neutrals or use a ton of color in modern Christmas decor.
12 modern Christmas decorating ideas

So I rounded up 12 of my favorite ideas for adding some modern flare to your Christmas decorations.  I hope they inspire you as much as me!

Let’s start with some neutral Christmas decor!

Modern Christmas living room

This simple design is from one of my favorite online magazines, Adore Magazine.  It has a ton of inspiration!

Anu from Nalle’s House is queen of the simple yet fun decorations that are prefect for her young boys and her amazing sense of style.  This black and white tree garland is so fun!

I love how this vignette mixes modern with a little rustic.  Crazy what a little greenery can do right?


Snowflake backdrop

This snowflake photo backdrop is one of my favorite things.  It would be perfect hanging in front of a window.



One of the things my home is missing is a nativity scene.  I love how simple this one is and would you believe it is made out of paper!  (of course you can, that’s what the title says…duh)


balsa wood gold ornament

This is one of my all time favorite DIY ornaments.  The girls at A Beautiful Mess made it from balsa wood and it is just so simple and pretty, especially against that white Christmas tree!


But if huge pops of color in your Christmas decor is your thing…



Then you probably love this super colorful Christmas mantle.  The styrofoam marquee letters are a really simple DIY that add a ton of spunk!


This oversized paper garland up these stairs is one of my all time favorite things!  Doesn’t it look magical?



I first saw this super cute nativity scene from Delineate Your Dwelling last year and it just might have been the post that I couldn’t get out of my head all season.  This is one I would let my daughter play with too!



I love the colors used on this wreath made from felt flowers and pom poms.


colorful Christmas mantle- better homes and gardens

And finally another super colorful and fun mantle.  Don’t you love the big curly bows on the wall art?


What do you gravitate toward, colorful or neutral?

This year I did a little bit of both!  Come take a look at my Christmas decorations!
