It is so difficult to choose a look for Christmas with so much fantastic inspiration at our fingertips. While I love the rich colours of a traditional Christmas, for some reason, this year I have really been drawn to Christmas decor with more neutral colours and natural elements. Here is selection of pictures I have found to illustrate the look.
Christmas stockings made from burlap or beautiful fabrics in pale hues.
I think I am going to keep my table setting very simple this year - something along these lines.
This year I am wrapping my presents in brown paper and then jazzing them up with beautiful ribbon.
I wonder if I will make a gingerbread house again. I made one a few years ago. It took me an entire day to make and my boys flattened it in about 5 seconds. I haven't completely got over that experience!
I would never of thought of grey as a colour for Christmas, but this is lovely.
I think I will stick to white, gold and silver on my tree.
I love the fabric decorations below.
There are lots of ways one can use natural elements for Christmas and the best part is that they are inexpensive or free!
Potted rosemary bushes as mini Christmas trees - perfect.
Decorations made out of seed pods - gorgeous!
There are hundreds of ways to use pine cones.
Animals must be included.
How about writing a message to Santa or a menu on a blackboard.
I think I'm going to try this at my house LOL!
I have made a small start on my decorations. I had to move my little desk in the corner to make place for my Christmas tree.
