More into understated elegance than traditional Christmas glitter? Go for a minimalist take on the festivities and stick to monochromes in simple geometric shapes. Create your own non-traditional, minimalist tree using shaped wire on a thread or by using string lights.

If Christmas conjures up snow-covered log cabins and warm hearths for you, then how about a Scandinavian-themed Christmas scheme? The trick is to use a palette of red and white in natural materials such as wood, paper, and fabric. Don’t have a real mantel? Use groups of white candles to add that touch of warmth and fire.
Get back to nature with a green Christmas. Gather seasonal evergreen plants such as ivy, holly, and, of course, mistletoe to create a rustic twisted wreath above a mantel or at your front door. Also, add sprigs of greenery to your Christmas table and in doorways to integrate the look throughout the house.
Tired of all that red and green? With a bohemian Christmas theme, it’s all about the eclectic – so anything goes. Have fun with mismatched baubles, combining old pieces with new, and even adding some homemade touches. This colorful wreath hung on the door looks beautiful.
And this collection of homemade stockings will add multiple colors to your festivities.
Let your imagination run wild and create your own alternative Christmas holiday decor. A blue and white scheme is perfectly whimsical.
