A Serene Christmas: Decorating with Soft Neutrals

Traditional red and green not your style? Embrace neutrals this Christmas! These soothing tones are perfect if you’re having a pared-down, minimalist holiday this year; they’re also great for modern farmhouse styles or simply creating a serene ambience.

Trim your Christmas tree with birch stars, pine cones, and burlap ribbon. Look for accents in blush, mint, or pale blue—or choose subtle metallics to catch the light. Linen-blend stockings with ribbon details keep the decor looking casual yet still festive. Christmas nativity figurines in pastels lend a whisper of color to the mantel, but you could also go rustic with faux greenery in galvanized pots. 

Let light poinsettias be every bit the showstoppers as their red counterparts. Adorn the area above a door with a sparkling ivory poinsettia topper, or crown a side table with a white silk poinsettia arrangement. Still missing some holiday twinkle? Line a table with LED candles in openwork metal lanterns, hang a lighted canvas wall art, or drape a table in a sequin-embellished cloth.

Is modern farmhouse more your style? Consider weathered furniture in light finishes, a tufted storage bench at the foot of the bed, bath accessories with crisscross shapes, and a simplistic table lamp.

Modern Farmhouse Home Office Decorating Ideas

Tackling the family budget? Up to your elbows in tax preparation? The home office is the place for it. If spartan, perfectly streamlined home offices aren’t quite your style, why not go for something rustic yet chic? Yes, a modern farmhouse home office! Embrace the clean lines of contemporary home decor, but warm your workspace up with farmhouse-style touches for a lived-in look.

Take a look at how to put a modern farmhouse spin on the home office:

  • Warm up wood floors with a fluffy shag rug or a flat-woven geometric floor covering.
  • Opt for minimalist office furniture that isn’t perfect. Think weathered finishes, pipe-style legs, and airy designs.
  • Shine a little light on your workspace with a desk lamp. We chose an industrial style with a seeded glass shade and an Edison bulb for that modern-yet-vintage appeal.
  • Punch up that bare wall space with a bold wall clock. The wooden clock we chose has a slatted style, stark Roman numerals, and nailhead accents.
  • Get creative with the accessories. Consider wire wall racks, scoop storage baskets, open-weave throw blankets, or framed chalkboard wall art.
