5 Holiday Decor Themes from Cozy to Modern

5 Holiday Decor Themes from Cozy to Modern

lodge style Christmas home decor with pillows in red and white

When it comes to holiday decor, we all have different style preferences.  Some of us like to keep it warm and cozy, others prefer to highlight the stark beauty of the winter season. As you think about creating your registry list in the months ahead (we’re looking at you, newly engaged!), make sure to remember holiday decor items you will use for many Decembers to come.  Here are 5 holiday decor looks from our friends at Crate and Barrel. Which style are you?

Above, this room is all about creating a cozy vibe. And this room was relatively easy to transform into a holiday retreat. First, register for red and white pillows that will play well off of your neutral-colored furniture. Second, bring down your snuggliest blankets from storage. Add a tree, and you have a charming decor theme.

Next, do you love traditional decor with trendy elements?  If so, this classically decorated room (below) is for you!  Since metallics have dominated this year, you’ll notice the of-the-moment touches of gold and silver in the ornaments, wrapping paper, and champagne bucket. Otherwise, this room uses traditional details like white wool blankets and stockings, a red amaryllis centerpiece, and white string lights. As you look towards registering for holiday items, consider products that you can add to year after year, such as the stocking hangers and votives along the mantel.

Are you a Christmas kid at heart? Do you still kinda, sorta, maybe believe in Santa Claus? Then, decor brimming with childlike whimsy is for you and your home!  Register for bowls featuring fun illustrations of trees and presents, as well as a tiered stand for all of your favorite yuletide goodies (because, really, isn’t it all about the cookies?).  Add an infusion of bright colors and plenty of hard candies and you have a playful atmosphere worthy of anyone on the nice list.

non holiday specific home decor in winter theme with pine and white

Whether you celebrate a holiday other than Christmas, or you just prefer a break from all the hubbub, many decor themes can be streamlined and more sedate.  Above, this wintry mantel incorporates the best of the season without being too “Christmasey.”  Register for these large glass hurricane lamps and you won’t be disappointed–you can use them for any decor during the winter season and long after December.  Head outside on a nature walk to gather pretty pine cones, woodcuts, and branches to complete your look.

Keep it modern and sleek with this minimalist holiday room (below). White garland with red birds to add some color (you could also use berries) and texture to this dining space. Loosely arrange flowers in a vase and pick up a seedling at the local nursery to use as a fetching centerpiece.

No matter what your holiday decor style, you can find the perfect items to register for at Crate and Barrel!
