Elegant & Understated Christmas Decor

My favorite Christmas decorations are those that are simple and fresh- lots of live greenery, white accessories and blooms,  and a little glitz of silver & gold. 

Habitually Chic pointsettias

White poinsettias for some class and a jingle ball wreath for some glamour- love it!

Mini boxwood wreaths can be used in so many ways- hanging in front of windows or mirrors, on the back of chairs, around candles…

Green apples, pears, and limes can be great accessories. 

 

Habitually Chic florals

And of course, flowers are one of the easiest accessories!  White blooms work for me anytime of year, but add a few pinecones or pine branches and it is the perfect balance of rustic chic.

Simple green pine or boxwood wreaths get me every time.  Not only are they so pretty but also so easy to assemble (for those of us who can’t manage a fancy craft project this time of year!!).

This is a wreath I loved at first sight and could be used at many times of the year too, minus the garland and Christmas Tree topiaries of course.

Are you a sucker for great ribbons?  Me too!  This one seems to add just the right festive touch.

Keeping it simple appeals in so many ways.  I find these colors are a breath of fresh air… especially after a trip to the mall and being bombarded with overwhelming store decor! 

What’s your favorite color to implement this season?

What lovely seasonal images - I love the little boxwood wreaths on the back of the dining chair slipcovers - I may steal this idea for next year!

What a beautiful collection of Christmas decorations photos . Really makes me want to snuggle under a blankie with some hot cocoa for some reason. Everything just looks so cozy.
