On My Mind || Non-Traditional Holiday Decor

December 05, 2014

When it comes to decorating for the Holidays I'm pretty traditional.  We love putting up a real tree with our decades old ornaments, which we love seeing after having missed them for a full year.  We have little Santas and snowmen around the house and some classic wreaths too.  We keep the same decorations year-in and year-out and maybe add a few things each season.  So, our holiday decor is pretty predictable.  I do venture out a little bit with my Christmas Eve dinner tablescape and try and change it up every year.  But I was wondering....what if I ventured and tried a more streamlined, more modern, non-traditional Christmas look?  I think it would be fabulous!

The disco gnome is brilliant! Literally!  He would make a fun addition to a mantel for sure and keep stockings in good company.  I bet the elf on the shelf would even enjoy having such a jolly fellow around.  The Kelly Wearstler china is breathtaking. High drama, right?  I can just an envision a whole table setting in pure gold and white china heaven and then adding in those fabulous black napkins. W.O.W.  Add a few edgy ornaments to the tree and it becomes a way cooler Christmas, yes?

What type of a holiday decorator are you?  Traditional? Modern? Do you cherish your Holiday decor and use it year after year?  or do you change things up constantly?  Please share!
