Simple Christmas Decor

 I've been so swamped with work that I still haven't decorated my house for Christmas! To be honest, Christmas decorations sound more like a chore right now than a joy! But, after seeing these simple decorating ideas, I have a whole new attitude! I think by keeping it simple, Christmas decorations can be beautiful yet calming at the same time, and who couldn't use a little bit of PEACE during the holidays? Check out these "Less is more" ideas.

I am definitely going for with silver and white this year. It just looks so clean and refreshing! Love these simple white candles with the sliver accents.

We have a white tree, and every year we go RETRO with it with bright 60's colors. This year I am going this route. White tree with silver accessories!

Same idea but with a green tree. Just as pretty, and I am in LOVE with the faux fur tree skirt!


Simple, effective and adorable!

This simple green wreath is gorgeous! You can get the same effect with an evergreen wreath. No need for bells, bows and whistles!


 And NEVER underestimate the power of a simple bowl of pine cones!

Happy Decorating!

OH yes I totally agree with going with simplicity. For me, it will be fairy lights, flowers and lots of fresh food in bowls! Sending you hugs for your week. x
