1. DECORATE THE MANTEL WITH TALL CANDLES
Look to appropriately decorate the mantel so it rings in the festive season but doesn't look odd or out of place in your room's overall theme. One way to add a warm, cozy vibe that still fits with minimalism is with pretty twinkling lights and candles. But keep the look simple. Perhaps choose vibrant colored candles in antique stands to give the mantel a special flair.
2. KEEP THE FIREPLACE DECOR SIMPLE WITH FOLIAGE
Your Christmas fireplace decor ideas shouldn't require you to spend an arm and a leg or to sacrifice your usual clean and uncluttered style. One great way is with foliage that looks natural and gives the interiors a refreshing vibe.
3. GO FOR A SCANDI TABLESCAPE
‘I love to take a personal approach to lay the table, starting with a tablecloth,' says interior designer Matthew Williamson. 'I think there is something so special about having a plain, textile to sit at. It softens the physical experience and provides a platform for texture, upon which you can keep your flatware and glassware. Experiment with different candlesticks at varying heights to create layers and add a vintage vase for your cut flowers or leaves.'
4. CREATE A PLEASING ARRANGEMENT AT THE ENTRYWAY
Be selective when choosing your decorations and only go for pieces or elements that are simple and fit the brief. Achieving a minimalist style is often perceived as an easy option, but little do people realize, that fewer objects make it harder to create a smart, stylish, and tasteful decor.
5. DON'T OVERCROWD THE WINDOW DECOR
Your Christmas window decor will inspire passersby to go for a sleek, simple, and minimal theme this year. Choose a few elements that make a big impact.
6. DECORATE THE FRONT DOOR WITH SMALL LANTERNS
Extend the Christmas door decorating ideas to even the front steps. Give your porch a whimsical touch with beautiful lights that can be used year-round.
7. PARE DOWN THE DECORATIONS TO DRAW FOCUS ON THE CHRISTMAS TREE
Whether you're looking for Christmas bedroom decorating ideas, kitchens, living rooms, or entryways, the very obvious element that truly spells Christmas – the tree – should be highlighted well. For minimalistic decor, you can solely concentrate on this element, without having to add any more.
