12 Christmas Decorating Ideas For Minimalists

One of the many things that we look forward to during the holidays is the sight of Christmas decorations. This article provides some great ideas for minimalist Christmas decorations.

Christmas decorations for people who don’t do Christmas decorations. Chic, simple ideas with just the right amount of sparkle…

1. In this sitting room designed by Rose Uniacke, floral designer Nikki Tibbles of Wild at Heart has created arrangements to complement the simplicity of the interiors. ‘We incorporated elegant statement arrangements, that were clean and sophisticated,’ says Nikki. ‘For both arrangements, we’ve used a base of Scots pine, soft grey pine, soft grey eucalyptus and asparagus fern. On the mantelpiece we’ve added flowering white jasmine and white euphorbia, while the grey vases have been padded out with lichen branches and eucalyptus buds.’

2. Solenne de la Fouchardi√®re the co-owner of chic home-furnishings company Ochre, has given the interior a relaxed look, using muted colours. Her Christmas decorations are similarly understated. ‘I have stuck to a white and silver palette – the traditional red and green would have been too harsh,’ she says. The results are cool and stylish, yet pretty.

3. This simple, natural arrangement works especially well in a smaller space or above a console table. Tie string around each end of a fir branch and hang it from a central point with twine. After a short amount of time, it will form this lovely relaxed shape. If you find that it falls back like a hammock, an additional length of string running between the two ends to form a triangle should keep it facing forward. Hang little bud vases at random lengths and fill with tiny berries or winter flowers. Red berries are festive, while bold flowers like hellebores would look very chic. Alternatively, attach brown envelopes with string or tape for a different take on an advent calendar.
