Let's talk about the color red. Red is a strong, bold color and it can be quite polarizing. People either love it or hate it. Let it be known that I'm one of the haters. And if you are red averse, Christmas can be tough on the eyes because red is everywhere. Anyone want to start a petition to change the color of Santa's suit? At least in our own home, we can protect ourselves from the horror of the color red. Keep reading for a round-up the best colorful and modern holiday decor out there without an ounce of red. (Ok there might be a tiny smidge here are there, but you'll hardly notice, trust me.)
Modern Holiday Decor - Decorative Trees
Trees are pretty ubiquitous when it comes to Christmas decor. And there are a ton of good options out there for decorative trees. Bottlebrush trees are always a classic, but it's nice to see some options that use different materials like felt, wood, metal, and ceramic. I love the colorful pompoms on the white felt trees. And the metallic tree trio is really striking and streamlined. They're a great example of how great mixing metals can look. The pampas grass tree is really fun and unexpected. Pampas grass is really having a moment right now and I love it as Christmas decor.
Modern Holiday Decor - Garland
Ok, so some of these garlands have a teeny bit of red and I'm gonna make an exception here because it's not overwhelming. Hopefully you fellow red-haters are cool with it too. Garland is great for stringing across fireplace mantels, bookcases, and windows. I love all the playful and fun options here. The colorful "Merry Christmas" garland is hands down my favorite. Such a fun and bold and bold color palette. And how about the vintage-style Christmas bulb garland?! It's got a great nostalgic feel that makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.
Modern Holiday Decor - Nutcrackers
Nutcrackers just scream Christmas. I love a modern take on this classic Christmas decor. The colorful nutcrackers will bring fun and drama to your space. Or you can go simple and subdued with the natural, organic feel of the wood, and marble options. The acrylic nutcrackers are great if you're looking to add some glam and sophistication to your decor.
Modern Holiday Decor - Tree Collars, Skirts & Tree Toppers
A tree collar or skirt is a must-have for hiding those ugly tree stands that hold the water. A pretty collar or skirt is much easier on the eyes. I'm really into colorful patterned fabric skirts. They're just so charming. You almost don't want to put presents out and cover those beauties up. And is a Christmas tree even a Christmas tree if it doesn't have a tree topper? I think not. I love the tall glass finials because they add height to your tree. Bigger is better right?
Modern Holiday Decor - Wreaths & Door Decor
Lots of great options for decking out the front door and entryway. Door swag sounds like such an old lady thing, but those pretty white bells give any door in the house some extra zhush. And the door hanger is extra special with all the texture and different materials.
As for the exterior, why not make your doormats fun and festive? It's a great way to show your holiday spirit and a nice way to greet guests. While a wreaths is always nice on the front door, they're great for interior doors and walls too.
Modern Holiday Decor - Festive Animal Figurines & Ornaments
Gotta continue my love for zoomorphism and all things whimsical when it comes to Christmas decorations. A colorful unicorn ornament? A fluffy pink llama? How can anyone resist this stuff?! And no Christmas decor is complete without some reindeer figurines.
All right friends, lots of options out there to deck your home for the holidays minus the color red. Which are your favorites?
